Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964

The insertion of women as potentially aggrieved parties of employment discrimination as an amendment to the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is acknowledged by the EEOC itself as a Poison Pill, viz:

From the History Page of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on line:

Sex Discrimination

EEOC had expected to receive very few charges of sex discrimination in its early years. It had assumed that the vast majority of charges would allege race discrimination because Title VII had been debated and passed in a racially-tense environment and most of the Congressional and media attention had focused on the problem of race discrimination. It was a surprise to find that fully one third of the charges (33.5 percent) filed in the first year alleged sex discrimination. After all, the prohibition against sex discrimination had been added as a last minute amendment by Congressman Howard Smith of Virginia who opposed the civil rights legislation and thought that Congress would reject a bill that mandated equal rights for women.

Indeed, most supporters of Title VII initially opposed the Smith amendment because they, too, thought that it would doom the legislation. The amendment stayed in because female members of Congress argued that there was a need to protect equal job opportunities for women. Congresswoman Katherine St. George of New York argued that she could think of “nothing more logical than this amendment” and that while women did not need any special privileges “because we outlast you, we outlive you, . . . we are entitled to this little crumb of equality.”

From the time the Civil Rights Act of 1964 first came into force The Poison Pill amendment did its dirty work and the poison quickly spread. Affirmative Action for women nullified and rendered meaningless The Civil Rights Movement. While the EEOC may claim The Poison Pill amendment was intended to prevent the passage of the Civil Rights Act; the long term effect was the same as if the act was never passed at all. From the end of the Civil War until today matriarchy still rules the ghetto and nothing has changed.

Modern day feminism as we know it is patently racist.

Patently – as in – from the beginning.

Go on now – Take your pill.
