Racism works for Senators Duckworth and Hirono

U.S. Senate is not EEOC compliant

Seems Biden’s cabinet was looking a little too white for Senator Tammy Duckworth. So she blatantly said she will hold up all his appointments unless the Biden Administration vowed to diversify. How is this not racist? She is specifically excluding a group of people because of the color of their skin.

Sen. Tammy Duckworth and the White House broke an impasse over the Illinois Democrat’s pledge to block President Biden’s nominees who aren’t diverse candidates as a protest over a lack of Asian American representation in the new administration.

Under their deal announced late Tuesday, the White House will add a senior liaison to the community and, in exchange, Duckworth will support Biden’s nominees.


Duckworth wasn’t able to get her token deal without the help of another Democrat racist, Senator Mazie Hirono.

The about-face came after Duckworth and fellow Democrat Mazie Hirono of Hawaii pledged to vote no on any White House nominees who aren’t diverse candidates. Hirono said late Tuesday she too changed her position.


Their stance is not EEOC compliant.

Race discrimination involves treating someone (an applicant or employee) unfavorably because he/she is of a certain race or because of personal characteristics associated with race (such as hair texture, skin color, or certain facial features). Color discrimination involves treating someone unfavorably because of skin color complexion.

The government above all should be blind to anything except qualifications for the job.
