When the Supreme Court put the brakes on Harvard’s race-based admissions practices, the backlash from the left was loud. What else is new? However, the bulk of the American people agree with the Supreme Court, and while the left is very loud, they’re actually a vocal minority, convinced they have some moral authority to dictate the rules the rest of us live by. Despite how unpopular the DEI movement is, the left is pushing to reinstate this unfair practice in college and all over the US with a sneaky legislative move. A bill currently slithering its way through Congress will embed racial, gender, and religious quotas into nearly every part of American life—housing, employment, healthcare, insurance, and credit decisions are all on the chopping block—and is set to become battlegrounds for DEI if this new bill passes.

But here’s the kicker: this push is disguised as a bipartisan “victory” for privacy rights. It’s not at all. But it’s so cleverly disguised that once again, Republicans have been duped into believing they’re championing a long-overdue resolution to privacy disputes and have already thrown their support behind it.

Typical GOP move. Nobody actually reads these massive bills, do they? However, what the GOP—and much of the public—fail to realize is that the “American Privacy Act of 2024” is nothing but a Trojan horse, sneakily reintroducing massive DEI quotas under the radar. It’s a classic wolf in sheep’s clothing scenario, where what’s being promoted as privacy protection is actually drastically reshaping society under the banner of “diversity, equity, and inclusion.”

The Volokh Conspiracy:

More than two-thirds of Americans think the Supreme Court was right to hold Harvard’s race-based admissions policy unlawful. But the minority who disagree have no doubt about their own moral authority, and there’s every reason to believe that they intend to undo the Court’s decision at the earliest opportunity.

Which could be as soon as this year. In fact, undoing the Harvard admissions decision is the least of it. Republicans and Democrats in Congress have embraced a precooked “privacy” bill that will impose race and gender quotas not just on academic admissions but on practically every private and public decision that matters to ordinary Americans. The provision could be adopted without scrutiny in a matter of weeks; that’s because it is packaged as part of a bipartisan bill setting federal privacy standards—something that has been out of reach in Washington for decades. And it looks as though the bill breaks the deadlock by giving Republicans some of the federal preemption their business allies want while it gives Democrats and left-wing advocacy groups a provision that will quietly overrule the Supreme Court’s Harvard decision and impose identity-based quotas on a wide swath of American life.

Isn’t it amazing, that the only time the two sides can agree and work together is when it’s against what the American people want? What does that tell you about our government? More from Volokh Conspiracy:

This tradeoff first showed up in a 2023 bill that Democratic and Republican members of the House commerce committee approved by an overwhelming 53-2 vote. That bill, however, never won the support of Sen. Cantwell (D-WA), who chairs the Senate commerce committee. This time around, a lightly revised version of the bill has been endorsed by both Sen. Cantwell and her House counterpart, Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA). The bill has a new name, the American Privacy Rights Act of 2024 (APRA), but it retains the earlier bill’s core provision, which uses a “disparate impact” test to impose race, gender, and other quotas on practically every institutional decision of importance to Americans.

“Disparate impact” has a long and controversial history in employment law; it’s controversial because it condemns as discriminatory practices that disproportionately affect racial, ethnic, gender, and other protected groups. Savvy employers soon learn that the easiest way to avoid disparate impact liability is to eliminate the disparity – that is, to hire a work force that is balanced by race and ethnicity. As the Supreme Court pointed out long ago, this is a recipe for discrimination; disparate impact liability can “leave the employer little choice . . . but to engage in a subjective quota system of employment selection.”  Wards Cove Packing Co. v. Atonio, 490 U.S. 642, 652-53 (1989), quoting Albemarle Paper Co. v. Moody, 422 U.S. 405, 448 (1975) (Blackmun, J., concurring).

We’ve been on this beat for ages. It’s baffling, really. The same DEI-driven agenda that wreaked havoc in South Africa is now being aggressively pushed in the US. Why? Are our so-called elites truly expecting different results this time around, even though it’s the same failed plan? It’s the classic definition of insanity and destruction from within.


Man, what the heck happened to South Africa in the early 90s?

Not too long ago, South Africa was a darling of the global neoliberal order. The nation hosted a soccer World Cup (where its fans ruined things with the abominable vuvuzela). It had that schmaltzy feel-good movie with Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman. The BRIC countries of Brazil, Russia, India, and China gave South Africa a sympathy invite to join the newly-renamed BRICS cabal. South Africa was the nation that would prove a post-colonial, post-European majoritarian multiracial democracy would astonish the world.

A new report from Harvard sums it up thusly:

The early 1990s marked a victory for generations of freedom fighters, and the future of an inclusive South Africa was set in motion. There was no telling what could be accomplished with the full force of South Africa’s human capabilities, creativity, and resilience in combination with its industrialized economy and established comparative advantages in global trade. […] The Rainbow Nation seemed poised to leverage its substantial economic assets at full strength. In 1995, South Africa supported the 47th most complex economy in the world — on par with China (ranked 46th) and far ahead of any other African nation (Tunisia was next at 66th). There was good reason to believe that the economy would grow rapidly, and opportunity would expand to many more South Africans.
Uh, yeah, about that.

You all know how well things went. But what’s incredible is that now even Harvard is giving up on the country.

Courtesy of the university’s “Growth Lab” at the Center for International Development, we have a lengthy 178-page paper titled “Growth Through Inclusion in South Africa.” But despite the title, the paper is actually about how the drive for “inclusion” has caused growth to disappear from the unfortunate country:

South Africa’s economy is stagnating and, in fact, losing capabilities, export diversity, and competitiveness. While the racial composition of wealth at the top has changed, wealth concentration in South Africa has not and remains very high. Moreover, the broader structures of the economy have not allowed for the inclusion of the labor and talents of South Africans — black, white, and otherwise.
The report is a gruesome, piece-by-piece dissection of South Africa’s failed economy, dressed up in just enough euphemisms to be publishable while allowing the more alert and informed to see the truth.

Harvard’s Shocking Admission: Affirmative Action and Critical Race Theory Killed South Africa

In a nutshell, Congress is on the verge of passing a bill—with hearty nods from both sides of the aisle—that would do more than just legalize DEI. It’s set to make “racial quotas” in employment and college admissions mandatory.

In other words, expect to see a lot more of this if the bill goes through.

It looks like the “Chamber of Commerce” type of Republicans are still pulling the strings, keeping a nice tight chokehold on the party. What we’re seeing is clear proof that when push comes to shove, these GOP elites aren’t afraid to show where their loyalties really lie, and that should be one helluva wakeup call for us. It’s time to get on the horn and light a fire under your representatives.
