Bush Justice Department Protects White People from Discrimination

In a decision that is sure to stir up controversy, the Bush administration Department of Justice announced yesterday that they are suing the city of Gary, Indiana for discriminating against white people.

This decision appears rather ironic, given that Bush refused to sign the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, which would have eliminated the 180 day limitation on filing lawsuits for hiring discrimination, while their current lawsuit involves hirings that were done back in 2006. At the time, the White House said the measure “would serve to impede justice and undermine the important goal of having allegations of discrimination expeditiously resolved.”

    Also ironic given their lying about the Blair House being booked so Obama couldn’t stay in it. I realize that probably wasn’t racism (just Bush and company being jerks), but it sure LOOKS like racism.
