Trump administration is considering a major rollback of civil rights regulation

On January 3, the Post reported that the administration was considering “a far-reaching rollback of civil rights law that would dilute federal rules.” The report noted that a recent internal memo from the Justice Department encouraged civil rights officials to look at how anti-discrimination guidance, some of which is decades old, could be removed or changed and what the effects would be.


This memo is reportedly the first step in a larger review that could see some of these guidance completely rescinded in the coming months. The Post notes that the Education Department and Department of Housing and Urban Development are also looking at similar guidance in their respective agencies.


The Justice Department memo explicitly targets federal civil rights guidance that focus on mitigating “disparate impact”— the concept that a practice or system can be discriminatory if it is found to disproportionately affect minorities, even if the policy itself is not rooted in intentional discrimination.

They can consider whatever his warped little mind comes up with; that doesn't mean they can do it. The longer he continues the current wall tantrum, the more his support will dwindle. At least some Republicans have got to have some limits (I hope).

2 Words: Unite - Fight.
Which is pretty much what is happening. At the start of 2017 there were a lot of different groups. Now they are more interconnected. Yes, they have their specializations (and sometimes differences over tactics) but I am sure I am not the only one that am now on mailing lists I would not have been on 2 years ago.

Now when two groups are protesting donnie the first question is not 'what are they protesting' but 'does their protest look more interesting than the one I am here for'.
