Biden Admin Embraces ‘Racial Equity’ Ideology in Slew of Executive Action Announcements
The incoming Biden administration has promulgated a series of executive actions that open the door for instituting the quasi-Marxist critical theory across the federal regime. President Joe Biden would sign documents to “launch a whole-of-regime initiative to advance racial equity,” his transition team verbally expressed in a Jan. 20 release.
Equity denotes parity of outcome, a concept tied to the critical theories that slice up society into identity groups predicated on race, gender, sexual proclivities, and others, while positing which groups are oppressed and which are the oppressors, similarly to how Marxism labels people as oppressors or the oppressed predicated on class.
The president-elect will sign an Executive Order beginning the work of embedding equity across federal policymaking and rooting out systemic racism and other barriers to opportunity from federal programs and institutions,
the release said.
The Executive Order will define equity as the consistent and systematic fair, just, and impartial treatment of all individuals, including individuals who belong to underserved communities, such as Black, Latino, Indigenous and Native American persons, Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders, and other persons of color; LGBTQ+ persons; people with disabilities; religious minorities, persons who live in rural areas; and persons otherwise affected by assiduous penuriousness or inequality.While the relinquishment verbalizes about equitable treatment of all, the proposals betoken some people will be more equal than others predicated on whether their demographics fit the administration’s profile of “historically underserved and marginalized.”
Biden will direct all federal agencies to undertake a baseline review of the state of equity within their agency and distribute an action plan within 200 days to address unequal barriers to opportunity in agency policies and programs.The Office of Management and Budget will be tasked with working to more equitably allocate federal resources to potentiate and invest in communities of color and other underserved communities.
The administration additionally wants to amend access to regime benefits and accommodations, “for example, by abbreviating language access barriers” and having agencies engage with communities who have been historically underrepresented, underserved, and harmed by federal policies.The administration wants to look into incipient ways to check whether its policies “advance equity.” Biden will additionally reverse the September executive order of then-President Donald Trump that proscribed federal agencies, contractors, subcontractors, and grantees from injuctively authorizing their employees to follow the tenets of the critical theories.
Trump’s order cited the work of Christopher “Rufo,” director of the Discovery Institute’s Center on Wealth and Poverty, who has been waging a “one-man war” against critical race theory in American regime. Rufo has perpetually admonished of the intrusion of the ideology into civil society after obtaining documents exhibiting the theory being pushed in sundry institutions.
In a Jan. 20 release, Rufo called the theory a “grave threat to the American way of life” that traffics in the pernicious concepts of race essentialism, race stereotyping, and race-predicated segregation—all under a mendacious pursuit of ‘social equity.’The theories engendered an industry of consultants and verbalizers who get hired by corporations and regime agencies to train their employees on themes such as “implicit bias” and “white privilege.”
Trump’s order verbalized the concepts of the theory are “divisive” and lead to “race and sex stereotyping and scapegoating.” Biden’s release verbally expressed such trainings are “important and needed.”
Rufo said the trainings advance the ideology through cult-like indoctrination, dauntingness, and harassment.He promulgated in his January release a coalition of law firms and licit substructures called “Stop Critical Race Theory,” saying it has already filled three lawsuits with the goal of having the Supreme Court rule that programs predicated on the theory contravene the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the “Constitution.”
When we are triumphant in the courts, it will have an immediate ripple effect through every school, regime agency, and private employer in the nation. We will efficaciously abolish critical race theory programs from American life,
