A clearly racist black law professor argues that black Americans should up and declare themselves disabled so they can sponge more welfare off of working American citizens.
She believes there should be disability protections for the black community against imaginary things like unconscious bias, stereotyping and structural inequality.
Kimani Paul-Emile, an associate professor of law at Fordham University and associate director of its law school’s Center on Race, Law & Justice, argues that while black Americans might initially spurn the “blackness as disability” label, it can actually be a wise courtroom plan.
Paul-Emile argues that disability law does not force plaintiffs to show that the harm they’ve suffered was intentional, that “discriminatory effect is almost always enough.” She explains her logic:
“Rather than focusing on malicious intent, disability law accepts the impact of even neutral actions, policies, and programs, directly confronting the ways in which social structures, institutions, and norms can ‘substantially limit’ a person’s ability to perform ‘a major life activity.’ It thus requires that even discrimination based on unacknowledged bias be addressed,”
She begins her diatrabe by babbling this nonsense:
While the Civil Rights Act of 1964 was instrumental in counteracting overt forms of racial discrimination, the United States still has a long way to go to achieve racial equality. More subtle, yet no less invidious, forms of discrimination remain: racial profiling, unequal access to housing and medical care, implicit bias, and stereotyping are just some examples. These inequities, confronted daily, can become disabling to communities of color. And if these discriminatory practices are indeed disabling, then perhaps a radical new look at race law is in order.
Continuing her Klan With A Tan rant, she claims:
IS BEING BLACK IN THE UNITED STATES TODAY A DISABILITY? This may seem a startling question, but it accurately reflects what Black, as a racial designation, is and was designed to be: disabling. Racial categories were created explicitly to serve as a caste system to privilege some and disadvantage others. Within this system, racial minority status was devised to limit opportunity, participation, and achievement, and it continues to do so in many areas of social and economic life.
This is particularly true for Black people, whose racial status is disabling in a myriad of specific ways. To be Black means facing increased likelihood, relative to Whites, of living in poverty, attending failing schools, experiencing discrimination in housing, being denied a job interview, being stopped by the police, being killed during a routine police encounter, receiving inferior medical care, living in substandard conditions and in dangerous and/or polluted environments, being un- or underemployed, receiving longer prison sentences, and having a lower life expectancy. These increased risks are not fully explained by income: Blackness in the United States has an independent disabling effect distinct from the effects of socioeconomic status.
She then claims that society itself causes disabilities:
This “social model” of disability offers a critical lens into the meaning, production, and cultural relativity of disability that is useful for thinking about race. For instance, it allows us to see how some disabilities are quite literally manifestations of sociocultural forces, as is the case with anorexia nervosa.
Then, disregarding the fact that Affirmative Action has placed millions of unqualified minorities into positions they didn’t earn, she spews the usual Social Justice nonsense about the myth of “Systemic Racism”:
Disability law provides a mechanism for identifying the ways in which social institutions, policies, and norms have been shaped consciously or unconsciously in a way that reflects this stratified notion of racial categories, and how now, as a basic fact of daily life, being Black poses barriers to equality in employment, edu- cation, housing, medicine, and many other contexts.
Then, in an attempt to justify herself to black Americans who can see through her line of bull, she says:
With respect to disability, black people have long had to contend with negative preconceptions and stereotypes about their abilities; therefore, an association with disability may be difficult for some people to accept. This concern, however, is misplaced, as it is based on antiquated, stigmatizing preconceptions of persons with disabilities. These negative preconceptions include perceiving individuals with disabilities as completely incapacitated, or assuming that they are impaired in all contexts and in ways that extend beyond their particular disability.
She finally ends her madness by saying:
When we stop thinking about disability in a pejorative, stigmatized way and acknowledge the reality and effect of structural race-based inequality, then the relationship between Blackness and disability becomes clear. Disability law allows us to do this. This framework offers a new—repurposed—paradigm for understanding how the law can address the way Blackness operates as a barrier to equality, while avoiding the doctrinal impasses that now plague race law, thereby enabling meaningful structural reform.
As we can clearly see, this woman not only hates herself, and sees herself as less than what she is, she’s taken the age-old race-card and overplayed it like a gambler betting the house on a pair of deuces, and her only goal is to drive black Americans deeper onto the Democratic Party Plantation…
It’s sad to see self-loathing people like this, but they have been brainwashed for decades by the left into believing that despite all of their actions that prove negative toward being productive in life, they are and always will be, a victim of whitey.
If you’d like to read her entire useless, racist rant, you can do so here.
