Kamala Harris Doesn’t Even Support the Policy She Savaged Biden for Not Supporting

So what exactly was all that at the debate about?

Kamala Harris is now changing her story. Instead of being in favor of mandatory busing (see my article here for what that is) as she signaled earlier, she’s now saying it should be available only as an “option.” That means leaving it up to local communities instead of forcing it at a federal level, which is exactly what Biden was arguing.

Compare her comments from a week ago to the latest ones.

And her comments yesterday.

Putting the clear flip-flop shown above aside, which is a big deal in its own right, some might say her newest position is still consistent overall because she would have supported the policy back when Biden opposed it in the 70s and 80s. That doesn’t hold water though because Harris says in the first statement that our schools are just as, if not more segregated today. If that’s true (it’s not), how could she possibly oppose busing for today’s students when she insisted it was tantamount to racism to oppose it decades back, a time when she asserts the problem was less serious? None of this makes any actual sense.

What it shows is just how politically brutal Harris is going to try to be. With her seeing a spike in the polls after the debates, she’ll only be emboldened now. While the first debates were heated, she’ll no doubt go even harder at Biden the next go around.

I just don’t think the former vice president is up for it.

California poised to ban hairstyle discrimination

This is California, remember. The Golden state is perched to become the first in the nation to ban discrimination based on unique hairstyles, mainly targeting blacks.

The measure, which has passed both chambers of the state legislature, could be signed by Gov. Gavin Newsom as soon as next week.

It’s aimed at schools and workplaces where blacks say they have been pressured to abandon hairstyles traditionally a part of their culture and have been denied jobs and advancement when they did not adopt more Eurocentric styles of personal grooming.

The bill, if signed, would prohibit enforcement of personal grooming policies affecting disproportionately those of color, especially blacks. This includes prohibitions on certain hairstyles, such as braids, twists, Afros, cornrows and dreadlocks.

It reads:

Workplace dress code and grooming policies that prohibit natural hair, including afros, braids, twists, and locks, have a disparate impact on Black individuals as these policies are more likely to deter Black applicants and burden or punish Black employees than any other group.

The bill’s sponsor, LA Democrat  Sen. Holly Mitchell claims that it would encourage schools and businesses to create grooming policies “that will foster inclusion and diversity.”

She said she had heard “far too many reports of black children humiliated and sent home from school because their natural hair was deemed unruly or a distraction to others.”

Mitchell added:

I believe that any law policy or practice that sanctions a job description that immediately excludes me from a profession — not because of my capacity or my capabilities or my experience but because of my hairstyle choice — is long overdue for reform.
