As if this administration didn’t have enough white supremacists, another one is about to join.
Secretary of State Betsy DeVos informed the world about the dangers of grizzlies in school. After pandering to the NRA and getting sworn in, she’s now looking for someone to temporarily head the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights. Who better to look out for minorities than a white supremacist?
Candice Jackson is an attorney, former conservative turned libertarian and hates big government. She even co-wrote a song about ‘Big Brother.’ Which makes her new job in big government all the more ironic.
Not as ironic as promising to uphold civil rights laws after claiming racism for being hate.
Back in the 1990’s, Jackson was a student at Stanford University who wanted help with her calculus. When she tried to join a specific group, she was told that it was just for minorities. She was outraged.
She proceeded to write in the Stanford Review:
“I am especially disappointed that the University encourages these and other discriminatory programs. We need to allow each person to define his or her own achievements instead of assuming competence or incompetence based on race.”
Her racism didn’t stop at tutoring for minorities, though.
Anti Civil Rights
Jackson isn’t a fan of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Simply put, it prevents discrimination of any kind based on your race, gender and what religion you practice. She even wrote in favor of a small government that doesn’t enforce these types of laws.
Her new job is upholding civil rights.
Good luck if you suffer from racial or gender discrimination while she’s in this position. While she was in college, she also wrote an op-ed that said:
“As with most liberal solutions to a problem, giving special assistance to minority students is a band-aid solution to a deep problem.”
People took to Twitter to voice their concerns.
Between Betsy Devos and Candice Jackson, we have a Dept of Education with ZERO commitment to civil rights enforcement or educational equity.

Is anyone surprised that pants-on-head Betsy Devos hired younger pants-on-head Candice Jackson? Because you shouldn't be.

Of course, it’s not like we could expect anything more out of DeVos.
Watch this video to hear part of the song Jackson wrote with her father, which shows how anti-government they are. Enjoy your government position, Jackson.
