HOW MAJORITY WHIP JAMES CLYBURN BLASTS BARR FOR SLAVERY LOCKDOWN COMPARISON! (438 hits)


HOT OFF THE PRESS!


House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., on Thursday blasted Attorney General William Barr for comparing pandemic shutdowns to slavery, calling the remarks "the most ridiculous, tone-deaf, God-awful thing I've ever heard."


In an interview on CNN's "New Day," https://www.cnn.com/2020/09/17/politics/james-clyburn-william-barr-slavery-coronavirus-lockdown-cnntv/index.html Clyburn was asked about Barr's comments Wednesday to the conservative Hillsdale College, in Michigan, where he said, "putting a national lockdown, stay-at-home orders, is like house arrest," adding, "other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint, this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history."


"You know, I think that that statement by Mr. Barr was the most ridiculous, tone-deaf, God-awful thing I've ever heard," Clyburn said, calling it "incredible" that the "chief law enforcement officer in this country would equate human bondage to expert advice to save lives."

"Slavery was not about saving lives, it was about devaluing lives," Clyburn, the highest-ranking Black member of the House, continued.

The U.S. has had no national lockdown; rather, varying levels of shutdowns across the U.S. were imposed by individual states and their governors.
Hitting President Donald Trump and his administration for their handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has claimed the lives of nearly 200,000 Americans, according to an NBC News tracker, Clyburn claimed that if the administration was "going about the business of doing what is necessary to protect the people of this great country, we would be beyond this pandemic by now."

"It would have been great if we had a national lockdown so that people's lives would be saved and our children will be going on with their lives today, as they should be," he continued. "But that is just what we're up against here."

The Equity and Inclusion Enforcement Act (EIEA) Restoring the right of students and parents to hold schools accountable for discrimination in education

Background A decade after the seminal Brown v. Board of Education decision ended lawful segregation in education, Congress passed the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Title VI of the Civil Rights Act mandates that federal dollars cannot subsidize or support programs or activities that discriminate on the basis of race, color, or national origin.

From 1964 until 2001, students and parents had the right – under Title VI – to take schools to court over education policies that have a disparate impact on their access to a quality education. Importantly, disparate impact claims do not have to establish that a school acted with intentional bias – which is often impossible to prove. These claims only have to establish that a school policy or practice has a disproportionately negative impact on students of a certain race, color, or national origin.

For example, if Black students at a particular school are being disciplined at far greater rates than their white classmates for similar offenses, those students could bring a disparate impact claim against the school without proof that the school uses exclusionary discipline on Black students because those students are Black. The appearance of discriminatory effect would be sufficient to file a disparate impact claim.

The Impact of Sandoval In 2001, Supreme Court’s conservative bloc upended the enforcement of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. Justice Antonin Scalia authored a 5-4 opinion in Alexander v. Sandoval that stripped victims of discrimination of their right to bring disparate impact claims under Title VI against schools and other entities receiving federal funds.

Under Sandoval, only the federal government may use disparate impact in administrative enforcement of Title VI. And if an administration is hostile to federal civil rights law, no such enforcement occurs. In the example above, unless the U.S. Department of Education decides, on its own, to investigate the school district’s policies and practices, racial disparities in discipline will never be addressed, even if there is a violation of Title VI.

Since 2001, many parents and students have expressed confusion and frustration that the law cannot address the discriminatory effect of certain policies and practices in their communities.

About the Equity and Inclusion Enforcement Act (EIEA) The Equity and Inclusion Enforcement Act (EIEA) takes steps to hold federally funded programs, including schools, accountable for their responsibility to provide all students with equal opportunity for a quality education. The bill:

• Restores the private right of action for students and parents to bring disparate impact claims under Title VI of the Civil Rights Act. • Creates Title VI monitors to ensure that every school district and institution of higher education has at least one employee to specifically responsible for investigating any complaints of discrimination based on race, color, or national origin. • Creates an Assistant Secretary in the Department of Education to coordinate and promote Title VI enforcement in education. https://edlabor.house.gov/imo/media/doc/Equity%20and%20Inclusion%20Enforcement%20Act%20-%20Fact%20Sheet.pdf

Yes Sister Ievine, I saw that Barr's reference to slavery in his denunciation of coronavirus restrictions drew outraged reactions from Democrats and other critics of the attorney general.

I wish that I was a fly on the wall when House Majority Whip James Clyburn, D-S.C., told CNN Thursday that Barr's statement "was the most ridiculous, tone-deaf, God-awful thing I've ever heard."

Clyburn said it was "incredible" the "chief law enforcement officer in this country would equate human bondage to expert advice to save lives. Slavery was not about saving lives, it was about devaluing lives."

WOW!!! That was powerful.
