DOJ to white male bullying victims: Tough luck
DOJ to white male bullying victims: Tough luck - Washington Times
DOJís website states:
The Civil Rights Division and the entire Justice Department are committed to ending bullying and harassment in schools, and the video highlights the Departmentís authority to enforce federal laws that protect students from discrimination and harassment at school because of their race, national origin, disability, religion, and sex, including harassment based on nonconformity with gender stereotypes.
The statement later says:
The enforcement of the Equal Protection Clause, Title IV of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 in school districts is a top priority of the Justice Departmentís Civil Rights Division. Additional information is available at the Civil Rights Divisionís Educational Opportunities Section website at USDOJ: Civil Rights Division: About the Educational Opportunities Section
Here is the catch. DOJ will only investigate bullying cases if the victim is considered protected under the 1964 Civil Rights legislation. In essence, only discrimination of the victimís race, color, religion, or sex will be considered by DOJ. The overweight straight white male who is verbally and/or physically harassed because of his size can consider himself invisible to the Justice Department.
Apparently, the Justice Department is going by George Orwellís famous Animal Farm ending: ďAll animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.Ē
