The Inequality of Equity

By Mark Swarbrick

On August 28, 1963, on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, Reverend Martin Luther King gave his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, where he said the now-famous line: “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.” When the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was passed, despite fierce Democrat opposition, much of that dream came true.

But then came the dark ages of the Obama-Biden regime. In what I call the “Obamanation” of America, Obama worked to reawaken racial strife in America.  Biden is determined to further Obama’s abominable perversion of our nation by continuing to increase that racial tension. Biden recently signed what he calls his Executive Order on Racial Equity. Now make no mistake, he is not talking about racial equality, which of course would be a good thing. No, he is talking about racial “equity.” Is there a difference? Oh yes, so much so that Biden made a careful distinction between the two. Biden recently said that progressive young Americans are “forcing us to confront the huge gap in economic equal — excuse me, economic inequity between those at the top and everyone else…forcing us to confront systemic racism and white supremacy.” He nearly, by accident, said “equality.” He quickly corrected himself and restated it as “inequity.” What is the difference? In the world of Obama bin Biden, there is a vast difference.

In the dystopian society that Biden envisions, people are no longer color blind. In the second Reich of Obamanation, there is no racial equality wherein blacks and whites have equal and fair opportunity. In the world according to Biden, people are once again judged by the color of their skin, but it is now white people who are the ones who must be subjugated as punishment for being white. This is an insult to Blacks, for it implies they are not capable of excelling on their own without an unfair advantage. It is unfair to whites, for it is the antithesis of equality. In Biden-land, people will not be hired based upon their skills or their character. They will be hired and fired based upon the color of their skin. This is a policy that will breed resentment. In the old south Blacks were labelled with the “n” word. Today Biden is labelling whites with a derogatory epithet; they are “white supremacists.” How does he know they are? Biden tells us: Just look at the color of their skin. They must be.

What Martin Luther King strived for was equality, an equal footing with whites. What Biden and his Democratic Party are promoting is racism, pure and simple. It divides the races rather than bringing them together. This is evident from the fact that racial tensions and riots have increased exponentially since 2008 when Obama won the presidency. What the Democratic Party is fostering is the opposite of the peace and brotherhood that King preached. Let us hear Doctor King again while considering how different his vision of equality is from Biden’s “equity.”

“I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood…we will be able to transform the jangling discords of our nation into a beautiful symphony of brotherhood…if America is to be a great nation, this must become true…we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands…”

Reverend King envisioned a country where America was made great, a nation in which black and white join hands in sincere brotherhood.  While Reverend King is turning over in his grave, Biden is driving a wedge between the races and fostering unrest and hatred, while he pretends to be promoting peace. There is a word for that kind of behavior: Diabolical.
