Obama Administration: How Do We Keep More Money Away From White People?
It’s no surprise that a man who went to Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years has his advisers trying to figure out how to racially discriminate against white people with government largesse, but it is surprising that they’re this open about it.

The stimulus plan will create jobs repairing and upgrading the nation’s roads, bridges, ports, levees, water and sewage system, public-transit systems, electricity grid, and schools. And it will kick-start alternative, non-fossil based sources of energy (wind, solar, geothermal, and so on); new health-care information systems; and universal broadband Internet access.
It’s a two-fer: lots of new jobs, and investments in the nation’s future productivity.
But if there aren’t enough skilled professionals to do the jobs involving new technologies, the stimulus will just increase the wages of the professionals who already have the right skills rather than generate many new jobs in these fields. And if construction jobs go mainly to white males who already dominate the construction trades, many people who need jobs the most — women, minorities, and the poor and long-term unemployed — will be shut out.
Here’s Reich again in his congressional testimony,
“I am concerned, as I’m sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to high-skilled people who are already professionals or to white male construction workers…I have nothing against white male construction workers, I’m just saying there are other people who have needs as well.”
I’m glad to hear that Reich has nothing against the white people he wants to discriminate against based on their race. That will probably be comforting to the people who are going to be punished by the Obama administration for being born the wrong color.
PS: What do you think Robert Reich would say if Barack Obama fired him, not because he thought he wasn’t the best man for the job, but because he thought Reich’s job should go to one of the, “many people who need jobs the most — women, minorities, and the poor and long-term unemployed?” My guess is that Reich would scream bloody murder about how unfair it is — but it’s never guys like Reich who seem to bear the brunt of the policies they advocate, is it?
As a matter of fact, if Reich believes in what he’s saying, why doesn’t he quit so he can free up his high dollar job for a woman or a minority? After all, if it’s all about race in construction, why shouldn’t it be all about race for Obama’s economic adviser?
