Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer just crossed a major line—one Democrats may never be able to crawl their way back from.

While Schumer claims his comment was made in the name of diversity, his actions speak otherwise.

In a country where racial tensions run high, Chuck Schumer just openly denied letting a man be appointed to Trump’s court system—and you won’t believe the reason why.

Though Schumer said he denied the appointment in the name of diversity, Chuck Schumer inadvertently added to the chaos when he decided he would not appoint President Trump’s federal judge choice because he was a white male.

When casting his ‘no’ vote, Schumer claimed since President Obama had elected two African-American judges, Trump should replace them with men of color as well.

The Daily Caller reported:

The nomination of Marvin Quattlebaum [the judicial nominee] speaks to the overall lack of diversity in President Trump’s selections for the federal judiciary,” Schumer said on the Senate floor Wednesday. “Quattlebaum replaces not one, but two scuttled Obama nominees who were African-American.”

The Democratic leader lamented the fact that the majority of Trump’s nominees were white, and stated that he was casting his no vote to protest this lack of racial diversity. Regardless of Quattlebaum’s qualifications, Schumer thought he was unfit for the job due to his race.

Schumer later tried to deny that was his excuse for not voting for Trump’s pick—though he was caught openly being recorded by press when speaking on the matter.

Unfortunately, this is not a nationwide crisis at the moment, as major liberal companies are denying people jobs simply due to their skin color—but to a Democrat, it is somehow not considered racist.

The Daily Caller reported:

Unfortunately, his reasoning for denying someone a job is becoming common in America. Google was recently hit with a lawsuit alleging that the tech giant discriminates against whites and Asians in its hiring practices. According to the lawsuit filed by a former recruiter for Google, the company had “irrefutable policies, memorialized in writing and consistently implemented in practice, of systematically discriminating in favor job applicants who are Hispanic, African-American, or female, and against Caucasian and Asian men.”

This lawsuit follows another one filed by former Google programmer James Damore alleging Google discriminated against white male employees in the workplace.

Both Schumer and Google justify these actions by appealing to the all-magical quality of diversity. This ideal, according to its true believers, makes everyone better, smarter and more moral by its presence alone.

Universities have long clung to this mindset in order to uphold affirmative action in their admissions. “The mere presence of a diverse group — women, minority, men, majority — affects for the better how we act and what we say, even without our knowing the personal viewpoints or opinions of the other people present,” argued Lee Bollinger, the former University of Michigan president who served as the named defendant in the 2003 Supreme Court case that upheld affirmative action.

Do you believe the better candidates should get the job simply because of their credentials?

Or do you believe diversity is important?
