This is a new project being launched by Bill Jacobson, and Legal Insurrection:
“We are starting equalprotect.org, the Equal Protection Project, because we’re seeing very troubling patterns in society…. We are seeing that unfortunately, under the concept of equity, that there is outright discrimination on the basis of race.”
Professor Jacobson was recently interviewed by Tucker Carlson; he explains the new Project, and what they are trying to do.
Thanks for having me on. So we are starting equalprotect.org, the Equal Protection Project, because we’re seeing very troubling patterns in society.
Our highest ideal as a society is enshrined in the Constitution, the 14th Amendment, and federal, state and local law, which is you do not discriminate on the basis of race or ethnicity. And we are seeing that unfortunately, under the concept of equity, that there is outright discrimination on the basis of race.
A perfect example is in Providence, Rhode Island, where I’m located right now. the Providence School District, the largest in Rhode Island, has founded a program for teacher loan forgiveness, new teacher loan forgiveness, funded by the Rhode Island Foundation, the largest charity in Rhode Island. There’s one catch to it. You cannot apply unless you are non-white. So they have are openly discriminating against new white teachers with this program. And nobody seems to blink an eye at it.
We have filed a federal complaint about it. We are pursuing it, but nobody is challenging this. The Governor is no place to be found. The Attorney General is no place to be found. This is a government program to discriminate and unfortunately that’s what has happened to the equity agenda. And we’re getting reports from around the country of these sort of problems.
So we are organizing to investigate these things, to expose them and if necessary, to litigate them. And one of the things we’re doing, and you can sign up at our website if you’re a lawyer who wants to help in this effort, at equalprotect.org, a lawyers network speakers Because this has to be a national effort. As you mentioned, the Biden administration’s behind it also. So that’s what we’re doing and we ask people to come and visit and join us.
I enjoy his site and get their daily briefing email. Not always earth shattering stuff, but he has his finger on the pulse of reality.
