Do Whites Have Civil Rights?

A few days ago I typed into Google (with quotes around my question to require an exact match):

“Do whites have civil rights?”

To my surprise, Google asserted in response that nobody had ever asked that precise question before in the history of the internet.

Today, Google lists my blog post asking that question, but only after announcing:

It looks like these results are changing quickly

If this topic is new, it can sometimes take time for results to be added by reliable sources

In other words, Steve Sailer is not a reliable source, so hopefully somebody less deplorable will soon post this text string, but until then we’re stuck featuring Sailer’s impertinent question at the top of our results. But we at Google want you to know that we are not at all happy about it.

Or something like that.

Then I saw a Washington Post article on the shocking news that some judges have been upholding discrimination lawsuits brought by whites like Stephen Miller against the Biden administration’s plans to simply give billions of dollars to black farmers and nonwhite restaurateurs for being not white:

Whites have civil rights, too, they say in a lawsuit filed in federal court in Texas. For Black farmers and civil rights groups, that’s a proposition that defies reality—and yet they are taking it very seriously, with generations of civil rights law potentially in the balance.

This got me thinking about how the Supreme Court could play a role in saving the United States of America from breaking apart due to the surging tide of antiwhite racist hate emanating from many of its most powerful institutions.

Keep in mind that there is no way to divide the U.S. up geographically that will cure what ails us. Fortunately, we still have a fundamental Constitutional framework of “equal protection of the laws” that can be restored to turn the power of the state away from fomenting discrimination against whites and toward preventing it, just as it was used more than a half century ago against discrimination against blacks.

In his 2020 book Age of Entitlement, Christopher Caldwell argues:

The changes of the 1960s, with civil rights at their core, were not just a major new element in the Constitution. They were a rival constitution, with which the original one was frequently incompatible…

That’s true, but…here’s the thing: Technically, the Constitution hasn’t been abrogated in favor of the theories of Prof. Ibram X. Kendi. The Supreme Court can reinstate Constitutional principles such as equal protection whenever it chooses.

So, I am going to list a series of principles and actions that could help hold the country together peacefully. I’m not a lawyer, so I’m not going to engage in extended legal argumentation in support of them. You can hire lawyers to do that.

Many of these ideas are existing law, but have largely been forgotten. It is time for the Supreme Court to restate them in no uncertain terms.
