Hello there, @mcuban. It appears as though some remedial education is in order. Please follow this 🧵 for a primer on the law.

- Federal law--the Civil Rights Act of 1964, in fact--prohibits discrimination on the basis of race and sex. See 42 U.S.C. § 2000e-2(a)(1).Image
/2 As the plain text of the statute says, you cannot "discriminate against any individual . . . because of such individual's race, color, religion, sex, or national origin."

"Discriminate" means treating an individual worse than others who are similarly situated. See Bostock v. Clayton County, 590 U.S. 644, 657 (2020).Image
/3 "Pay equity," as Microsoft describes it, is illegal. "Equity" is not "equality." Microsoft apparently explicitly considers an employee's race or sex as a factor when setting his or her compensation. Meaning, it "discriminates against" that employee if they are white or male. Image
/4 So when a company like Microsoft then goes on to brag that all racial and ethnic minority groups earn $1.007 total pay for every $1.000 earned by white employees, that's an explicit sign of illegal consideration of race in employee compensation. You cannot pay someone less because of their skin color.Image
/4 Same for sex. Microsoft brags that it pays women $1.007 total pay for every $1.000 earned by men.

You cannot discriminate against someone because of their sex. Image
/5 Your straw man argument doesn't work.

No one has said, "it is inconceivable that various minorities and women could be hired and promoted . . . exclusively based on merit."

They certainly can and are. That's fabulous. It's 2024.
/6 But people have rightfully called out policies that EXPLICITLY consider race and sex as factors in employment decisions. And they should, because that's ILLEGAL.
/7 You simply cannot discriminate on the basis of race or sex. It's black-letter law. All Americans deserve equal treatment under the law regardless of race or sex.

There's even a Constitutional Amendment on point.
/8 As lawyers, we'd encourage you to comply with your legal obligations and NOT discriminate against Americans based on race or sex in your employment decisions.

As Chief Justice Robert said nearly two decades ago, "[t]he way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race."Image
/9 But if you continue to embrace "equity" (aka discrimination) as much as it seems, please at least do us all the favor of being consistent with it in all areas of your life.

Make a wish come true for @WuWei113 and embrace "equity" for the players on the @dallasmavs

/1📑NEW LAWSUIT — Biden’s Department of Defense is illegally concealing records that could exonerate President Trump in DOJ’s illegal prosecution over presidential records.

So today, we sued the Department of Defense to obtain these records.

Read on: Image
/2 In January, AFL filed a FOIA with the Defense Information Systems Agency, part of the Department of Defense, to understand PITC.
/3 PITC is highly relevant today as it creates a presumption that the President controls all information he receives.

Thus, it is relevant to what a President may reasonably believe about information given to him in office.

/1 Biden's Department of Justice published its updated Equity Action Plan for FY2024.

Read about how Biden's Executive Order 14091 has directed the FBI and federal law enforcement to use their vast powers to advance racial and gender hierarchies.

🧵THREAD: Image
/2 Biden’s Executive Order 14091 instructs each agency head to establish an “Agency Equity Team” staffed with personnel from every possible component (policy, legal, science, communications, financial assistance, etc.) Image
/3 The Order charges each “Agency Equity Team” with “the implementation of equity initiatives” and “ensur[ing] that their respective agencies are delivering equitable outcomes for the American people. Image

/1🚨EXPOSED: Documents show that in just one year, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation poured over $30 million into DEI programs that are explicitly anti-white and anti-police.

Read all the stunning details in the thread below: Image
/2 Today we are releasing research obtained through collaboration with @ExposingBiden demonstrating that the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is funding groups that advance illegal, racist, and anti-American DEI policies and promote the “systemic racism” lie.
/3 The evidence is that the Gates Foundation is engaged in a systemic assault on our nondiscrimination laws and the principle that individual Americans deserve to be judged on the content of their character, not the color of their skin.

Over and over again, the Gates fortune is being used to promote anti-white, anti-police policies and programs.

/1🚨BREAKING — We sent a demand letter to Disney’s CEO & Board of Directors notifying them of, and documenting, the following:

✔️Breach of fiduciary duty
✔️Misleading shareholders
✔️Intentional violations of federal civil rights law
✔️Mismanagement erasing 40% of value

/2 This letter arises from the Company’s civil rights violations in employment and contracting and the damage to Disney’s brand, properties, and commercial reputation by management’s manufactured misalignment between its woke political and social agenda and the vast majority of the Company’s customers.
/3 In February, AFL revealed Disney’s perverse system of discriminatory race and sex quotas in front of and behind the camera by filing a federal civil rights complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
