Madison to be Sued Over Racial Quotas

By definition, this is racist.

A conservative law firm plans to file a lawsuit against the city in federal court Wednesday over Madison’s new police civilian oversight board.

The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty argues that Madison’s decision to reserve seats on the board for Black, Asian, Latinx and Native American people constitutes a racial quota and is unconstitutional.

“Racial quotas and classifications — enshrined in this city law and the official policy of the city — are unconstitutional, offensive, and repugnant to basic American values,” the law firm said in a statement. “The city of Madison has not identified a compelling government interest that would justify racial quotas.”

The 13-member civilian oversight board was created last year in a years-in-the-making decision meant to bring more accountability to the Madison Police Department. In addition to hiring an independent police monitor, the board will conduct an annual review of the police chief and make policy recommendations to police, among other responsibilities. Most recently, the oversight board finalized the job description for the police monitor position.

    Funny that the ordinance actually uses the term “Latinx”. 98% of Latinos & Latinas hate that term and some find it to be an offensive racial slur.

    Biden takes heat for using word ‘Latinx’ in explaining why the population is slow to get vaccinated

    And he talks about the Tuskegee Airmen being subjected to syphilis experiments: “There’s a reason why it’s been harder to get African-Americans, initially, to get vaccinated,” Biden said at the Raleigh event, part of a “month of action” to boost vaccination rates before July 4.

    “Because they’re used to being experimented on – the Tuskegee Airmen and others. People have memories. People have long memories,” he said.

    And half the members have to be Black.
    But they have the wrong plaintiff, Dave Blaska, a white conservative politician who is hated in Madison.
    I wonder if they have a quota for conservatives on the board?

    Somebody needs to stop the rampant racists on the left.
