Republicans are the only group of politicians in the United States today who has shown a willingness to fight racism.
Seattle Democrats Try to Legalize Racism
State Senators from the Democratic Party in Washington State tried to legalize racism.
Initiative 200 (I-200) was passed in 1998 to ban racism. I-200 states:
The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting.
I-200 was passed by ballot measure, which means it has support of the people. As well it should. The state should be not be discriminating or giving preferences on the basis of race, because well that’s racism.
Democrats Try to Be Racist
Initiative 1000 (I-1000) seeks to overturn I-200, thereby making racism legal in Washington state again. Knowing that their attempts at racism isn’t well looked upon, Democrat state senators ram the initiative through without going to the ballot, likely fearful that the common people won’t accept their racism. Democrats try to dress up their racism as “social equity” or other terms, but wording in the initiative allows the government to discriminate at will by appointing a commission.
Republicans Try to Fight Back
Thankfully, Republicans stood in solidarity and no Republican voted with the Democrats to legalize racism. However the bill was still passed, directly by legislature, by the Democratic party controlled government. This is what happens when Democrats take control of government; they try to abuse their power to ram through racist policies that would hurt real minorities like Chinese Americans and Korean Americans.
Citizens Try to Fight Back
Minorities in Washington state, understandably outraged at the attempts of the Democrat party controlled government to racially discriminate against them, rose up to challenge the act. They quickly used grassroot and local social networks to gather signatures to force it to a ballot. Keep in mind that the original initiative banning racism, I-200, was already passed by ballot in 1998. Because it was overturned by Democrats, the people forced it with great effort to go back to the people. The Democrats and their racist allies will try to fool people into voting for racist I-1000, but hopefully the people will prevail for the good of the nation.
