Posted on 08/02/2017 2:21:53 AM PDT by Altura Ct.
The Trump administration is preparing to redirect resources of the Justice Departments civil rights division toward investigating and suing universities over affirmative action admissions policies deemed to discriminate against white applicants, according to a document obtained by The New York Times.
The document, an internal announcement to the civil rights division, seeks current lawyers interested in working for a new project on investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions. The announcement suggests that the project will be run out of the divisions front office, where the Trump administrations political appointees work, rather than its Educational Opportunities Section, which is run by career civil servants and normally handles work involving schools and universities.
The document does not explicitly identify whom the Justice Department considers at risk of discrimination because of affirmative action admissions policies. But the phrasing it uses, intentional race-based discrimination, cuts to the heart of programs designed to bring more minorities to university campuses. Supporters and critics of the project said it was clearly targeting admissions programs that can give members of generally disadvantaged groups, like black and Latino students, an edge over other applicants with comparable or higher test scores.

This could get interesting.
The SJWs are going to be a hella fun thing to watch on this one.
Fake document being used to identify the leakers.
President Trump sure keeps that left Jab going.
If it’s true, and It probably is in some more honest fashion than reported, then it will be used as a means to reduce or remove funding for certain institutions.
The Times is trying to cover up the truth again. Things have gotten much, much worse for whites than simply the unfair practice of "affirmative action" (read: discrimination against whites in the application process).
Colleges and Universities in the Obama era morphed into full blown hate groups against white students.
Evidently, Sessions has everything under control over there, so he’s branching out.
Let’s ignore the DWS and the Pakistani thing, which is starting to look like a massive national security problem and perhaps blackmail as well. This issue, all by itself, could wipe out a boatload of Dems in the midterms, but noooooo... Only God knows how many soldiers lost their lives because the enemy was tipped off. These cats got into the gov’t in 2005, folks.
Has Sessions convened a grand jury over the unmasking of citizens? If so, I haven’t heard about it.
Instead, he chooses to go after something NOW that can be brought up at any time. These other issues are time-sensitive; there are going to be statute of limitation considerations.
And as an added bonus, this will become THE issue covered by the press at least thru the Sunday shows.
No wonder DJT is pissed off at him. This guy is becoming (as my late dad used to say) “like tits on a bull.”

Interesting perspective. Possibly true.
Here we go again.
You have a problem with this way overdue action?
Wow. Watch Libs heads explode now. Someone actually defending the white male. About time.
This is GOOD news.
I applaud this way overdue action. Are you black by any chance?
Let’s find out what the truth is first. I have no confidence in anything reported by the NYT.
No, I’m full blooded Italian. Second generation, daughter of a Navy man, in case you are headed over to Ancestry.com. to determine if I’m qualified to weigh in.
But this is an incredibly stupid scab to pick right now. It’s not like there isn’t anything else for the DOJ to take action on right now. You know, stuff that could really help the president.
I don’t have to ask if you’re a moron by any chance.
I already know.
Unless it includes Asians, it’s worse than a useless gesture.
I would limit the scope to discrimination against white males
Jeffie’s all about civil asset seizure. It’s like a license to steal what ever you want from anybody anytime.
I was a Baake reject back in the days when the school actually sent me a letter telling me that my application to law school was deferred one year in order to increase minority student census. Now they are a lot more sneaky. They have criteria like urban experience, first graduate school student in family, can tell a gram of crack from a half gram, etc.
They need to do something about the lack of first amendment rights on college campuses.
