BREAKING: The DEI agenda suffers another blow in the courts…

The 11th Circuit out of Atlanta just upheld a lower court decision that a venture capital firm likely engaged in discriminatory behavior over a DEI grant they were dispersing solely on the basis of race.

Here’s more from Will Hild:

The 11th Circuit has upheld a district court determination that venture capital firm, Fearless Fund, was likely engaging in discriminatory behavior and violating the Civil Rights Act in attempting to award grants on the basis of race.

Under the ruling, Fearless Fund must suspend the program, pending the outcome of lawsuit brought by the American Alliance for Equal Rights.

The 11th Circuit agrees the lawsuit will likely find the grant program violates the Civil Rights Act, won’t be protected by the First Amendment and inflicts irreparable harm. Sounds about right.

According to the AP, the lawsuit was filed by “American American Alliance for Equal Rights, a group led by Edward Blum, the conservative activist behind the Supreme Court case that ended affirmative action in college admissions.”

They also point out two of the appellate judges were Trump appointees and one an Obama appointee, and that the ruling was 2-1.

I remember the good old days when everyone understood that discriminating on the basis of race is wrong. It’s a shame that it takes the court system to make these determinations now.
