Amnesty Will Lead to More Affirmative Action

John T. Bennett, American Thinker, June 3, 2013

Of all the consequences that would result from amnesty, one that hasn’t been discussed enough is the expansion of affirmative action.

Affirmative action takes existing racial grievances, institutionalizes them, and then magnifies them.  As Shelby Steele noted, affirmative action encourages “a victim-focused identity in minorities” and fosters “a parasitic diversity industry” [1].

Affirmative action policies will benefit minority immigrants, and minority immigrants will naturally support affirmative action policies.  How do we know?  Because Hispanics are telling pollsters so.

Sixty-five percent of Hispanics believe that affirmative action should be used to ensure that more Hispanics get to college or university, and 68% support affirmative action in employment, according to a 2011 Angus Reid opinion poll.  A 2012 Georgetown University poll showed that 63% of young Hispanics (18-24) support affirmative action to “redress past discrimination,” along with 75% of young blacks, but only 19% of whites [2].

Of course, making up for past discrimination doesn’t apply to people whose ancestors never set foot in this country, but fairness was never the goal of racial preferences; former Democratic Senator James Webb famously noted that affirmative action simply favors “anyone who does not happen to be white.”

The policy is bad enough.  The greatest harm is the poisonous racial grievance reinforced by the policy.

People who believe that their racial group is often discriminated against will support affirmative action.  On this point, the open-borders Republicans have done an extremely poor job of understanding Hispanic viewpoints about how this country treats them. Sixty-four percent of Latino adults claim that discrimination against Hispanics in schools is “a major problem,” and 58% said the same of the workplace, according to a recent Pew poll.

What gets counted as “discrimination” in people’s minds is hard to say.  Actual discrimination does not always correspond to accusations of racism and unfair treatment.  Hispanic views towards immigration enforcement are unsurprisingly left-wing, so any type of immigration enforcement could be considered discrimination by those who see discrimination in every policy they dislike.  Consider the results of this Pew poll: 76% of Hispanics oppose workplace raids, 73% oppose criminal prosecution of illegal immigrants, 70% oppose the criminal prosecution of employers for immigration violations, and 53% oppose employee database checks to verify the immigration status of workers in a given workplace.

There are very few policy issues that liberals don’t reduce to supposed racism.  Even “righteous indignation against diversity and reverse discrimination” is one of the “implements of racism” for upper-class whites, according to law professor Mari Matsuda, a founder of the highly influential critical race theory [3].

It’s safe to say that when a racial group perceive a high degree of supposed discrimination, they will not be voting for limited government, but will instead favor reverse discrimination.  Those who assert the contrary — pro-amnesty Republicans — have the extraordinary burden of showing some basis in history or logic for believing that groups with a racial victim mindset will reject racial preferences.

It is a false hope that any significant number of those who receive amnesty will vote Republican, unless the GOP gets in the affirmative action game.  Give a group amnesty, and they’ll be thankful to all Democrats and a few Republicans, but Democrats will give them more of what they want from the state.  The choice will be simple.

Racial preferences and reverse discrimination will worsen if amnesty passes.  This is entirely predictable, and it requires no foresight to understand that people who benefit from the regime of reverse discrimination will gladly promote that regime with their votes.  The only way to slow down the victim lobby is to stop amnesty, and enhance enforcement immediately.

  • Unemployed recent white graduates is good news to me. These are the same morons who voted for Obama. Well, they are now adults, and it’s time for them to experience diversity first hand. Let ’em wallow in it!

    I’m sick and tired of these sob stories told by these white liberals. They accumulate $40,000 in debt, too stupid to realize what Affirmative Action does to their job prospects, and wonder why they’re working at Starbuck’s?

    • ATBOTL

      Do you ever have anything of value to say? Nationalists need to be advocates for our people, not wish them ill.

      BTW, the majority of young white voters voted for Romney.

      • Despite my 94% Caucasian DNA, I still had a great great Apache grandmother who married a man who bequeathed his last name to all of his direct male descendants. He came from Spain itself back when you had to go through Ellis Island.
        Fortunately for me, all of my direct ancestors to him married 100% white. All I have left from the squaw he married is a hairline that will never recede. The black hair, brown eyes, and brown skin are all gone. I carry neither.
        Well, that last name makes me eligible for Affirmative Action, and the liberal white yuppie wants to keep Affirmative Action alive. Thanks. I’ll keep using it.

        • Alexandra1973

          I still have the eyes from my Cherokee ancestor, whoever that was. I’ve been told I have Oriental-looking eyes. (Not THAT squinty, but just enough….)

      • dogbone

        “Nationalists need to be advocates for our people, not wish them ill.”

        Why should one group of whites that sees what is happening continue to take punches for and by another group of whites who are too stupid to exist on this planet without a government tit to suckle off?

    • Sick of it

      Or we vote Conservative/Against the system and BOOM…still get screwed. Because old white people wanted to either stay at home or vote in a Marxist Mormon. The same old white people who both own property AND receive a government pension while we push for scraps. So…you know, we won’t have a white future with young white people unable to afford kids. The rich whites are liberals…they have money, power and connections.

  • Mr. E

    Wasn’t Affirmative Action meant, in great part, to redress black gripes about slavery and Jim Crow? Why should Latinos be eligible for Affirmative Action, anyway? You would think that blacks would be concerned about Latinos stealing Affirmative Action positions intended for them, but they’re more concerned with screwing whitey.

    • sbuffalonative

      Hispanics have no claim to Affirmative Action but blacks will let them claim it for themselves. Of course, whites will be affected but more blacks will be.

      Blacks SHOULD be screaming that AA was meant for them. That they allow Hispanics and Asians to take spots from them only leads me to question their motives and their intelligence.

      • BernieGoetzFan

        They don’t see it that way. They think that all the victims will be white and that is a good thing for them. When they run out of whites to discriminate against – as they are starting to in California – then they take the spots of better qualified Asians.

    • So CAL Snowman

      “You would think that blacks would be concerned about Latinos stealing Affirmative Action positions intended for them”

      Black people as a whole are incapable of understanding the above. They honestly do not have the mental capacity to grasp the idea that there will be less for them with more Latinos, because they see America as one giant magic piggy bank of never ending wealth.

      • edie

        of course, don’t you know we have printing presses that will actually print 100 dollar bills………… just keep the presses running 24/7

        end of problem, right?

    • NYB

      To justify ‘affirmative action’, we’ve moved away from the nebulous “legacy of black slavery”.
      AA is now derived from the ideologically founded commandment that “lack of visible diversity among whites is inherently evil, requiring immediate dictatorial remedies”.

      • Romulus

        Just like that bowl #yke in rejavik(spelling ?) Iceland that is importing Haji and Africans.

    • edie

      then why have white women been eligible for aa since the beginning?

      • SlyDeNiro

        They benefit from unwritten AA rules called: Silent Set-Asides.

        • connorhus

          Complete BS. White Women were included in AA as far back as 1967 I believe and they benefit from it more than the so called minorities or did for decades. The tables maybe turning on them now actually but women are indeed covered under the civil rights legislation and affirmative action.

          • SlyDeNiro

            That is true. But, it is how the government classifies them that is different. The quota system varies. Women are slightly lower on the quota totem pole, but they’re on it.

            The Executive Order system is where they operate. The Femocrats inspired and exploited EO# 13623 recently to get more women into federal contractors, for example. The women’s groups work the fuzzy grey areas.

          • SFLBIB

            “Women are slightly lower on the quota totem pole, …”

            May I suggest a new term? The “Quotem Pole”.

          • SlyDeNiro

            Very nice. Are you a writer?

          • SFLBIB

            Thanks for your compliment. I am not a writer, but have always had a fascination with words and their origins.

          • SlyDeNiro

            Me, too!

          • BernieGoetzFan

            Not true. White women and men have to score 200-300 points higher on SATs to get in the same school as blacks.

      • SFLBIB

        A coalition of Blacks, Latinos, Feminists, Gays, basically every non-white male ethnic group, and other “fellow travelers” has formed. They give each other mutual political support when needed. Thus you see some odd things like gays counter-demonstrating in front of abortion clinics.

        This coalition is critical, since no group [except women] can succeed on its own because of the lack of numbers. As a result of this joining forces, the membership can keep AA going forever.

    • Erasmus

      Wasn’t Affirmative Action meant, in great part, to redress black gripes about slavery and Jim Crow?

      Yes, it was, but the Civil Rights Act of 1991[sic], sponsored by that alcoholic bag of guts, Teddy Kennedy, put the burden of proof on the defendant if hiring didn’t reflect the ethnic make-up of the community where the business was located.

      In 1990, Bush the Elder vetoed this monstrosity. In 1991 he signed it into law. I remember a spokesman from that creature’s office vomiting out talking points and declaring that the new law would not explicitly mandate quotas. Yet none of the chair-moisteners working for the MSM asked him to verify that it wouldn’t implicitly mandate quotas.

      It is impossible to see the criminals in Washington in operation and remain dispassionate, when you realize they’re destroying the country you and your forefathers fought for.

    • SlyDeNiro

      Ann articulated that point fairly well at this link:

      I’ve experienced unmerciful reverse discrimination in the federal contractor workplace. Right up until they retaliated against my EEOC complaints, by terminating me, under the guise of sequester. It was almost a relief.

      We are of two nations.

      • White Mom in WDC

        More than two my friend. We’ve got the beaners, the rice people, groids, whites.,. Everyone wants a piece. I say let them all fight over their pie while the whites make their own pie

          If you could remove the first line and keep the second, I would appreciate it. Don’t give the Libs the language they need to distract and redirect.

    • onetwothree

      Affirmative action was an anti-European policy from day one. Believe me, when European-Americans are finally beaten, blacks and hispanics and all women are going to get it even worse.

    • dogbone

      The sole purpose for Affirmative Action is to hurt white males, and to get control of this country. It has nothing to do with reparations to blacks or any other minority group.

      Follow the money. Find out who really benefits from Affirmative Action, and you will find the people responsible for it.

      • SFLBIB

        “The sole purpose for Affirmative Action is to hurt white males,…”

        That is correct. In fact, a good argument can be made that AA, EEO, etc., as implemented, are de facto bills of attainder aimed at men.

  • The__Bobster

    Pretty soon the only people who won’t be getting AA preferences will be straight White Christian males. What happens when they run out of us?

    • sbuffalonative

      We’ve already been warned by Hispanics that white people should fight to keep AA because they’re going to need it.

      • BernieGoetzFan

        They will not be giving us affirmative action quotas (or hate crimes protection, welfare, bilingual ballots, cultural studies programs, race-based scholarships, special dorms …etc.). Only whites do that.

    • edie

      isn’t that the way it is now?
      who else does not get aa?

  • jay11

    In my experience, which is expansive, blacks and latinos take the normal ups and downs of life and racialize them. It makes them feel better when they don’t get what they want because they can blame external forces for their own failings. Example: a black kid gets a bad grade. He didn’t study. He goofed around in class. He didn’t show any interest in his studies. So he got a D or an F. Bottom line, he will say the teacher was raciss’. I have seen this time and time again in many venues. Latinos do the same thing.

    • edie

      and mexicans will outvote us in a few years and they will turn the US into a carbon copy of mehico.

      • So CAL Snowman

        Mexicans do not vote in substantial numbers. Even in LA where the Mexicans are the majoirty, the La Raza Times was lamenting the fact that the latest mayoral race would be decided by older White voters.

        • edie

          they will once they are established here and la raza goes around telling them what they’re voting for.

    Senator Jim Webb of Virginia:

    “In an odd historical twist that all Americans see but few can understand, many programs allow recently arrived immigrants to move ahead of similarly situated whites whose families have been in the country for generations. These programs have damaged racial harmony. And the more they have grown, the less they have actually helped African-Americans, the intended beneficiaries of affirmative action . . . The extrapolation . . . to all ‘people of color’—especially since 1965, when new immigration laws dramatically altered the demographic makeup of the U.S.—moved affirmative action away from remediation and toward discrimination, this time against whites.”

    • edie

      yes, the wise ol’ jim webb can understand that but only a few of the rest of us.

      this is how the elected elite think. They are smarter than a crackerjack and the rest of us are stupid. Don’t you love ’em?

      I remember that article. I do believe I still have a copy of it. I sent a photocopy to the fools in Minnesota who created the idiotic forum for discussing anything as non sensical as supposed “white privilege”

  • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

    Leftists will tell you that “we’re all one race – human”, or pick nits about how “Hispanic” is an ethnicity, not a race. I say we should run with this idea. If you’re filling out a job or college application, declare that you are Hispanic and reap the Affirmative Action advantage. Tell them your mother’s maiden name was Gomez, and she was from Spain. It’s just an ethnicity, right?

    • SFLBIB

      Strange you should mention that. Back about 40 years ago there was a case where a white male civil servant could not get promoted no matter how hard he tried. Legally changed his name to Lopez and got promoted next time around.

  • bigone4u

    To mock my university’s AA policies I exercised my right under the law to declare myself whatever race I wanted to. So, I contacted HR and demanded the paperwork to declare myself Native American. My mocking on my employer’s anti-white racism did not endear me to them. Periodicially I would get calls politely asking that I change my race back to white, but I refused. My reply, “Diversity is good. Diversity is our strength,” words heard daily on a university campus.

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      Yeah, the Fauxcahontas maneuver. 🙂

      • bigone4u

        I’m not sure, but I think I did it years before she did. My motives were different. I never asked for special privileges. I made it clear that I mocked AA. She took advantage of AA and I consider her despicable.

    • Intrepid

      College AA has a neutral effect on Whites. It harms Asians the most. Here’s how AA affects every race:

      Blacks – Helps… by getting seats from Whites and Asians.

      Hispanics – Helps… by getting seats from Whites and Asians.

      Whites – Neutral or Hurts…. Lose seats to Blacks and Hispanics. Helps by protecting seats that would go to Asians.

      Asians – Hurts… by losing seats to Blacks, Whites and Hispanics.

      It’s been speculated that if college admissions were completely race-blind, then Asian admissions would actually be 5x higher than they currently are.

    “What gets counted as “discrimination” in people’s minds is hard to say.”

    No, it’s easy to say.

    According to the new definition, anything less than a secure, middle class, consumerist lifestyle is ‘discrimination’. The implied cause is racism, and the solution is wealth confiscation and redistribution, from whites to browns.

    • Romulus

    Ha! Amnesty is only the tip of the iceberg. No sooner than the ink dries on the pending amnesty bill will Latinos be demanding special rights, privileges and set asides. And they will scream RACIST, ANGLO OPPRESSOR if their demands aren’t met.

    The Republicans will meekly resist for 2-3 years then when they lose the 2016 election thanks in large part to the amnesty bill they will crap themselves and become honorary La Raza members.

  • Erasmus

    I was saying this months ago. (Maybe I should get a national platform.)

    Whites need to recognize that amnesty will do more than give the illegals equal footing with white American citizens and the people who came here legally. If the amnestied illegals are non-whites, they’ll be given preferential treatment in hiring, promotion and education.

    Amnesty is bovine excrement, and even if the criminals in Washington ram it through, as Americans learn what’s really in this piece of filth cobbled together in secret and in the dead of night, they’re going to hate it more and more.

    Pass amnesty, senators, and Americans will curse you for generations to come.

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      I thought the same about Obamacare. Admittedly the jury’s still out about Obamacare since most of its provisions have only begun to kick in, but the experience of Europe is not encouraging. People become numb and acclimated to evil.

  • And the conservative politicians are right in there helping sell us out to the plutocrats and the cheap labor invaders. So why is amren now participating in a conservative conference?

    Why do hispanics need AA in the US? Why does the US need hispanics? Most of the new world is hispanic and yet they need to invade and take our Anglo lands. And then they want AA because they are not suited to life in an advanced nation. And our “leaders” go along with it. Insane.

    • Fighting_Northern_Spirit

      God, if we considered needs, there would be no non-Whites here at all.

  • IKantunderstand

    Eventually, Whites will not be able to get jobs. There will never ever be any affirmative action for Whites, even when we become a minority in the country that we Whites fought and died for. The country we Whites founded on principles never seen before in this world. A country where the Whites invented most of the world’s technological advancements, and if they weren’t invented in this OUR White country, it was invented in another White country. The coloreds who take over OUR country, will show no mercy. I have no doubt that some Whites will remain. Red Sea pedestrians, and White sellouts. But, the fruit of our ancestors’ sweat, toil, sacrifice, to wrest a living out of a wilderness will fall into the hands of people who are too stupid to have done it on their own, too stupid to have explored the world, too stupid to have protected themselves against disease, or pestilence, too stupid to plan for the future, too stupid to have developed a written language. In fact, too stupid to live , without our help. Oh, and by the way, good luck Will Smith, with that whole “After Earth” movie. How exactly were you able to leave Earth? Did you use all that Black technology?

  • connorhus

    Just as I said over at AT. Affirmative Action isn’t something that only helps non-Whites, It helps everyone who isn’t a White Male. That’s the most important part of the whole things. We cannot even get White women to vote against this biased, racist, chauvinistic garbage because they benefit from it as much, if not more, than the Blacks and Browns.

  • George White

    If this amnesty bill passes, whites are dead meat. Get on the phone and raise hell with the scumbags in Washington!

  • AllSeeingEyeSpy

    “The policy is bad enough. The greatest harm is the poisonous racial grievance reinforced by the policy”.

    This is true. The discussion never touches on the fact whites give up something for a greater good. Where ever they are most using affirmative action, the public face presented will be that it is Whites who are discriminating, and that this is wrong and evil.

  • AllSeeingEyeSpy

    “righteous indignation against diversity and reverse discrimination” is one of the “implements of racism”

    Dinesh D’Souza pointed this out as well. When those can be found who oppose affirmative action, college administrators respond by saying they’ve discovered the latent racism they’ve been looking for.

    “The only way to slow down the victim lobby is to stop amnesty, and enhance enforcement immediately”.

    The only way to stop affirmative action is for white males to lobby for affirmative action for themselves. It will only be after white males are denied ‘affirmative action’, too, the nation will be forced to shut down affirmative action for everyone who isn’t a white male. Eventually, demographics may reach the point where affirmative action may start again, but it would be a lot tougher sell. I’m guessing quite a tough sell, indeed.

  • White Mom in WDC

    All these articles illustrate is that it is time for the whites in this country to stop paying into the system. Just stop. Look, I am glad that college has become such a joke that any beaner or groid can get in- it makes it worthless and it makes me not to have to worry about spending time and money saving for college. Whites have to disengage. I have loans from a PhD program that I have not paid in a year and frankly I will finagle the system so I will NEVER pay them. Eff the system! Who cares? All this does is fan the flames and the system will crash. It’s a one way train to Retardville. My kids are going to learn skills so they can work on their own away from the diversity mobs. Tune it all out. This is good news!

  • humura

    Republican Pres. NIxon made affirmative action a national policy. Result – up to 96% of Blacks vote Democrat. Republican Pres. Reagan signed the bill of the 1980s that gave amnesty to about 5 million illegal aliens. Result, fewer Hispanics voted Republican in the following election. If the GOP endorses the new amnesty bill (comp. immigration reform), of the 11 million invaders, probably 10 million will vote Democrat.
    Meanwhile, about 10 million Hispanics, illegal invaders, will jump to the head of the line for univ. admission, for scholarships, for jobs, for promotion. All because of affirmative action. The US will be granting preferences and privileges to illegal invaders, and discriminating against law-abiding, native born white citizens.
    The Democrats have long ago given up on the white working class and white middle class. They favor the discrimination against us. But if the GOP votes for this new outrage, it will gain almost no new Hispanic votes. Meanwhile, it will lose many more white voters – and with good reason.
    It is time to deport the invaders, and end the discrimination against whites called affirmative action.

    • SlyDeNiro

      That was Democrat LBJ.

  • deadly future

    “A 2012 Georgetown University poll showed that 63% of young Hispanics
    (18-24) support affirmative action to “redress past discrimination,”
    along with 75% of young blacks, but only 19% of whites”

    That tells the full story in a nutshell and that nasal boy Rubio is lying along with little Lindsey Graham who is just another McCain liberal. What is “redress past discrimination” anyway? Sounds like some lie that liberals use to turn Amerika into another South Africa.
    Looks like that long awaited time machine invention needs to be rushed along so this entire misguided mistake of African slavery can be abolished by going back 500 yrs and erasing it. This way rejected blacks will be back in Africa and never left and tribal chiefs can sell them elsewhere like to the middle eastern muslim nations to avoid what has become an American hellhole.

  • Bobby

    Amnesty absolutely will lead to more affirmative action. What do citizens think happened with the major Reagan amnesty in 1986? Don’t they think that those former Mexican nationals and others immediately got citizenship and were then hired first over European-Americans? Of course they were–by the hundreds of thousands. I live in Callifornia–the illegal aliens state and know these things. PEACE.
    P.S. Any European-Americans who do not realize their true position in this nation by now, are dunderheads or the worst kind.

  • A Freespeechzone

    Make NO mistake—amnesty and affirmative action are targeted at the demise of the White race….aided and embolden by Barack Obama and the anti-White, pro-illegal liberals and democrats.

    We MUST fight back…..this is NOT about equality, which most of us support, but, retribution, payback and punishment for BEING WHITE.

  • Bobby

    The harm this will do to whites isn’t part of the immigration debate.
    THAT’S WHAT IS SO UTTERLY SURREAL ABOUT THE IMMIGRATION “DEBATE”. Whites don’t have any representatives, who’s kidding who here!!


    One area that has not been explained is if AA is to address past discrimination, why an illegal immigrant should get a preference under AA. Not having lived in the U.S., how could an illegal immigrant experience past discrimination that is the fault of the U.S.?
