The Futility of “Colorblindness” (Part 7): Ricci v. DeStefano–Court’s Insistence on Blindly Enforcing “Colorblindness” Is Unjust

The underlying story of the Ricci v. DeStefano case is the idea that Whites are experiencing discrimination like non-White people endure. The courts pick up this theme through confidently supporting supposedly even-handed “colorblindness” without mentioning the superior position of the White race.

This leads to the situation in which there is “colorblindness” in theory, yet injustice to non-Whites in fact.

Examination of the U.S. Census for New Haven, Connecticut (city) and Connecticut at large demonstrates that regardless of the arguments asserting anti-White bias, political power still remains with the White race.

Regardless, the Court in the Ricci case will likely mention the population in New Haven and neglect the reality of the majority (and power) of the White race in Connecticut and the United States.
