You're the one who made it about race.
so saying people coming from mexico are rapists isn't making it about race? Trump made it a bout race with his dog whistles.
As for it's constitutionality, I can't really comment because I don't know the nuances of the court case on the policy. The rest of this I have already refuted.
The police intentionally targeted minority groups. That is by definition a racist policy. They stopped them and assaulted them without any cause and without the person having done anything wrong.
Only when they aren't competing against white applicants. Yet, out of the white applicants and the black applicants they chose a disproportionate amount of black applicants, and yet they are still racist towards black applicants? It's really a nonsense argument.
you haven't shown any evidence there was competition though. Maybe they just got alot more applications from black people for shit jobs. Your stat proves nothing.
And when you drop the assumption that they are all doing manual labor (they are definitely not, we've had a black president for Pete's sake) the whole thing falls apart even further.
there are some black people who are hired for higher level jobs, so pointing to a few cases of successful black people is just a distraction. But the stat you provided does not have the nuance to be useful. It doesn't show the number of black people in positions of power. It's like saying that plantations had like 90% black workers, so clearly plantations were great places for black people to work.
Anyway, my main point with that is that if people find success running for office on the "I'm a minority vote for me" platform, then racism in politics is a very moot issue.
I think that having diverse candidates is a good thing. If government is disproportionately made up of old white guys, then it cannot possibly reflect the needs or wants of it's people. However it is also critically important to look at what the candidate believes and wants to do. Electing a black person that believes in all the same failed policies as all the other old guard neo-libs doesn't do anyone any good.
