Watch: Biden Signs Executive Orders Aimed At Promoting Racial Equality

Published: Tuesday 26th Jan 2021 by Rashad

Joe Biden‘s first 100 days as President of the United States are en route to making history for the number of executive orders he’s signed to immediately undo some of the work of the Trump administration as well as progressively advance agendas the latter left ignored.

Having already addressed issues related to LGBT rights, immigration, and more, Biden took to press Tuesday (January 26) to unveil a multi-faceted plan aimed to promote racial equality.

More inside:

Biden announced the signing of four executive orders to improve race relations in America – a number of which impact the Department of Housing and Justice Department.

Highlights of executive actions include:

  • Department of Housing and Urban Development must “take steps necessary to redress racially discriminatory federal housing policies that have contributed to wealth inequality for generations.”
  • Justice Department’s use of private prisons to end
  • Recommitment of the federal government to Tribal sovereignty
  • Take phased steps to combat discrimination against Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders – a condition that’s only worsened due to stigmas associated with the global health crisis

Economists estimate $5 trillion could be added to the economy over the next 5 years if the racial gaps in income and opportunity close, a notion Biden supports and has declared all federal agencies and White House offices would be tasked with doing the same.

“For too long we’ve allowed a narrow, cramped view of the promise of this nation to fester,” Biden said during his address to the press (seen above). “I believe we all rise or fall together. Advancing equity is a critical part of healing and restoring unity in our nation.”

      Trump had a year………. What did he do? waited until the end of December to focus on any of those. Wake up and smell something other than your petty implanted hatred for a better future. Who hurt you, why are you such a negative person? Dang

      One thing at a time? A strong president can and should multitask. C-ovi-d is one of numerous things Biden is working on. It’s great news.

    Why didn’t “the great black” Obama do this? You have to ask yourselves what is Biden going to get out of this? You fools can’t even see what’s really going on. 🤢🤢

        Let’s see. Under the Obama administration…

        (1) The Affordable Care Act was passed and led to health care coverage for some 20 million Americans, including about 4 million Hispanics and 3 million African-Americans, according to federal statistics.

        (2) On criminal justice, Obama pushed for the law that reduced disparities between mandatory crack and powder cocaine sentences that had put blacks behind bars longer than whites. And he commuted the sentences of nearly 1,200 federal inmates, almost all of whom were incarcerated for nonviolent drug crimes.

        (3) The U.S. Justice Department, under Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, focused on civil rights violations in law enforcement.

        (4) Obama nominated Sonia Sotomayor, the first Latina on the U.S. Supreme Court. And more than 100 minority judges were added to the federal bench. The president also created “My Brother’s Keeper” to expand opportunities for young boys and men of color.

        You racist clowns make this s*** easy. The Obama administration wasn’t perfect, but they didn’t sit idly by as you racist b****** suggest. 🖕🏻🖕🏻🖕🏻

        He sent American jobs and money to China and greatly inflamed racial tensions in our country.
        – Economy to China
        – Cancelled Science & NASA
        – Secretly sending people back to their own country. (Not being honest about it)
        – Sending money to other countries and himself.
        – Obama care.
        – Wage freeze on Federal workers for three years, 2011-2013.

        There has been so much evidence proving that the Obama administration & Clinton cartel were committing TREASONOUS acts, along with PROOF of their ILLEGAL attempts to interfere in our elections. What about HRC’s funnelled money used for a dossier containing SLANDEROUS lies about President Trump? It’s appalling how their actions circumvent the very US laws that they claim to be “investigating”. Yet the lying Democrats are only concerned with this ridiculous, 2-year long witch hunt against our legally elected President Donald Trump. 😠 I have seen the laughable tactics used by Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc…. that continue to bombard me with anti-Trump propaganda.

      Actuall Obama started the private prison reform and trump administration overturned it Obama had already been working on it. Education is key especially when you don’t know your facts on important matters in our country. Smh we see who was on that Lil bus 🚌 back n school 😩🤧😎

      • IAmKingBishhhh January 26, 2021

        *Actually

      • Fancy BISH January 27, 2021

        Lazy as always, if you start something then finish it. If it meant so much to Obama then it would have been one of the first things that he would have changed. He’s not full black so he didn’t’ care, simple.

    Shakaiah has her baptism this coming Sunday and I can’t stop crying, because I worry so much about losing her, what I would do, I’ve never loved this much and I’m struggling because it’s a fear! I would just please appreciate it if you could all leave your insults of my daughter until at least after this weekend. I don’t usually get it offended, but please. Let me have this. If not for me, for Shakaiah. Thank you.

      So, you’re asking us to respect that children are off limits (at least temporarily) but yet you can talk s*** about someone’s sickness diagnosis with impunity? Girl bye. Remember this…

      Remember she will do anything. ANYTHING chile! Performing in the parking lot of McDonalds, stripping off for photoshoots, video appearances, appearing on and in and magazine that will have her and accusing her very on bandmate or being racist. Talk about scraping the barrel! But then she is at the very bottom of it, just like her “music.” Girl bye!
