The Justice Dept. is going to investigate colleges and universities for discriminating against white people with funds it is diverting from the Justice Department’s civil rights division.
The New York Times: The Trump administration is preparing to redirect resources of the Justice Department’s 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.”
I have said it many, many times….elections have consequences. Hillary Clinton’s emails were minor in the grand scheme of things. Remember when Donald Trump asked black people what they had to lose by supporting him? This is a prime example. He didn’t win the election because of economic anxiety. He won because he brought out the racist instincts in many of his supporters.
Well, Twitter blasted Jeff Sessions (who I have long called a racist):

I can't wait to hear about affirmative action from the rich white man who can barely string a sentence together but somehow became POTUS

If universities have to get rid of any remaining affirmative action programs they should have to eliminate legacy preferences too.
