Racial Preferences In ObamaKare

From Pajamas Media:
...[A]s we all know, the devil is always in the details. And on page 879 is one detail that few know about.


In an article written for the American Thinker...the bill specifies that the secretary of Health and Human Services, “in awarding grants or contracts under this section … shall give preferences to entities that have a demonstrated record of … training individuals who are from underrepresented minority groups or disadvantaged backgrounds.”

The bill doesn’t say what would qualify as a “demonstrated record,” so if ObamaCare passes you can expect that medical schools and other training institutions will do whatever they can to get away with training as many people as possible from so-called “disadvantaged backgrounds.”

By the way, if you’re poor and white, or Asian, or Jewish, don’t expect any advantage under this plan. The word “underrepresented” is inserted into the bill’s language to make it clear the preferences are aimed at giving a leg up to black and Hispanic students. According to the soft bigotry of the left, “underrepresented” is always meant to be read as “black” and “Latino.”
So much for the 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Well, BHO did sit in Jeremiah Wright's congregation for years, so we shouldn't be surprised by any of BHO's racial preferences.

A reminder about Jeremiah Wright:
