US Supreme Court upholds “disparate impact” standard of discrimination

In a 5-4 decision, the Republican-controlled Supreme Court has upheld the “disparate impact” standard of discrimination:

“WASHINGTON — The Supreme Court handed a surprising victory to the Obama administration and civil rights groups on Thursday when it upheld a key tool used for more than four decades to fight housing discrimination.

The justices ruled 5-4 that federal housing laws prohibit seemingly neutral practices that harm minorities, even without proof of intentional discrimination.

Justice Anthony Kennedy, often a swing vote, joined the court’s four liberal members in upholding the use of so-called “disparate impact” cases. …”

In other words, if black people are disproportionately failing to succeed in something, then it is not their fault. It is the fault of institutional racism, discriminatory policies, “the legacy of slavery,” etc. It is a historic decision for Black Run America (BRA) which is based on the proposition that nothing is ever the fault of black people and that the promotion of black people above all others is the highest good of the social order.

Note: I want to stress here that the Republican Party is responsible for appointing Anthony Kennedy to the Supreme Court.

    As I recall it, both the Jew Breyer and the Roman Catholic Kennedy were nominated to the Supreme Court as “Conservatives”.

  2. Earl Butz | June 25, 2015 at 5:03 pm |

    No, Breyer. Clinton sold Breyer to the public as a conservative.

  3. Breyer was appointed by Clinton.

  4. The disparate impact crap is connected to equality. If one believes in equality, if one race is generally behind, then the ONLY conclusion is “disparate impact”. Remove the myth of equality and it all comes down, ALL of it. It’s the left and right’s house of cards.

  5. I’ve said since last year that the SC is going to force sodomy down our throats. Get ready.

  6. They’ll also get us amnesty. Mark my words.

    “I think you mean Souter.’

    Souter proved to be a liberal He didn’t have much of a ‘paper trail’ so the lefties could not hammer him . It is damn near impossible to get a conservative on the bench. They get Borked. The GOP has to settle for pseudos who turn to the left after donning the robes.

    No, the court is not dominated by conservatives. Scalia, Alito and Thomas who usually goes along with them usually vote that way. The hard core lefties are Ginsburg, Kagan, Breyer, and Sotomahyor. The remaining two Roberts and Kennedy are showing their true colors.

    In other words, Diversity means chasing down the last White person.

  9. Maybe we ought to sue the SCOTUS for disparate impact since there are no WASPs or Southerners on the bench. I wonder how they will rule?

    Hunter, O/T but any idea what’s going on at C of CC?

  12. So are you big-talking Southerners going to boycott Walmart, Sears, Target and Amazon?

  13. The GOP: The original anti-Southern, anti-White party!

  14. I believe all those so call conservative look Obama in the eyes and he hypnotizes them to do his will. Or they are being blackmailed.

    YG: if we could do that we might as well just secede, as it takes nearly identical levels of effort.

    We need a harrowing event to speak directly to the fear centers of the brains of our people. Until then, it’s just boiling frog syndrome. Most whites we need want to enjoy the illusion of dominance even as it has slipped away. The left was super smart about that strategy. Essentially, white America was dead when the fraggings in Viet Nam shut down the war, everything from that point on has just been boiling the frog.

  16. This case was by far the most important one of the 2014-15 SCOTUS term, and the one on which a right ruling could have helped us the most and the one that the wrong ruling they made will hurt us the most. Gay “marriage” and ObamaDontCare are relatively small potatoes compared to this.

    “The GOP: The original anti-Southern, anti-White party!

    Palmetto Patriot, the Republican party must be destroyed in order to clear the way for a true nationalist/populist alternative.

    The Southern states are strategically positioned to deliver the body blow of death to the Party of Lincoln given the Republican Party’s reliance on the so-called “Southern strategy” that dates back to Richard Nixon’s 1968 and 1972 presidential campaigns.

    Without the South, the Republican Party is toast. All one has to do is not vote for them and they will perish. The problem is that most Southerners have this ‘voting-for-the-lesser-of-two-evils’ mentality and vote Republican regardless of the level or degree of treachery that they are subjected to repeatedly.

    This needs to change.

    If Southerners are going to continue to vote for the party of Lincoln given the latest round of treacherous backstabbing and in-your-face contemptuousness, then, collectively, they are no longer a viable people and will meet their fate along with the rest of the nation.

    It’s that simple.

    In the not too distant future, this will happen regardless of how white Southerners vote given the demographic catastrophe that has befallen the entire South. For instance, North Carolina, currently a purple state, is turning blue given the increasing liberal northern white and non-white (negro/Hispanic) population.

    Ditto for Virginia and Florida. Ultimately, the GOP is dead man walking. The question remaining is how will it end and who delivers the final body blow.

    “So are you big-talking Southerners going to boycott Walmart, Sears, Target and Amazon?” – YG

    We “big-talking Southerners” plan to boycott the Republican Party that made it all possible and deliver the final body blow of death to Lincoln’s Great Beast. (Something I’ve already been doing for the past ten years.) The retailers you mention never sold much Confederate merchandise to begin with and really don’t play much of a role in the great scheme of things. Personally, I don’t buy much from any of them and will now double my efforts to avoid them whenever possible.

  19. “Scipio Americanus says:

    In other words, NO. You’re not going to inconvenience yourselves one bit because all you are is Internet addicts. You don’t give a shit about the future of White people. That’s why we’ve NEVER been able to band together and do hard things to defend ourselves.

  20. Scipio Americanus says:

    ‘We “big-talking Southerners” plan to boycott the Republican Party that made it all possible and deliver the final body blow of death to Lincoln’s Great Beast.’

    Yeah sure, the Republicans made it all possible.

    By the way, Southerners ARE pretty much the heart, soul and backbone of the Republican party today. You know, the offspring of the folks who lived there 150 years ago.

    When they are sent to the back of the bus for good –it will all be over quickly.

    Don’t forget to abandon Jeff Sessions and others just like him who fight for us against the odds.

    And you will not have a chance to gloat about the GOP going down in flames on internet forums because all hate speech ( Any forms of White resistance) will be legislated out of existence faster than you can whistle ‘Dixie.’

    So long internet.

    In other words. bye, bye Occidental Dissent.

    Then the Democrats can eliminate us quickly. No more resistance even if much of it was feeble.

  21. Sam, we already are eliminated…

  22. Earl Butz says:

    ‘Sam, we already are eliminated…’

    No, not really. It may seem that way and I must admit to getting very depressed about
    the current situation.

    We’re not near the bottom of the barrel yet. Could be much worse.

    If we read about the history of Rhodesia and South Africa we recognize how bad it can become and how quickly it can blow up when the antis gain momentum.

    I remember reading ‘The Gulag Archipelago’ by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn.

    Shudder!!

    That scenario is a ways off. And yes, if/when we reach that point it will be hopeless.

    But, hey, there is some light at the end of the tunnel

    I hope it’s not a train.

  23. OK we abandon the Stupid party.
    Hillary becomes president.
    We loose the right to keep and bare arms and everything else gets worse even faster.

    How is this a winning strategy?

  24. Dr.Duke says:
    ‘OK we abandon the Stupid party.
    Hillary becomes president.
    We loose the right to keep and bare arms and everything else gets worse even faster.
    How is this a winning strategy?’

    This is the worse is better strategy.

    When Americans finally get fed up they will act.

    Not hardly. With every setback our power is diminished even more.

    We recede into the shadows, stop voting, organize more prayer bands hope for some miracles.

    Never works.
