What These Black Conservatives Say About Equating Race With ‘Transgenderism’

restroomMembers of Project 21, a network of black conservatives, spoke their minds about President Barack Obama’s decree that North Carolina must allow men access to women’s restrooms or lose federal funding.

Specifically, they took issue with liberals equating skin color with disorder and confusion.

“Comparing gender dysphoria to innate characteristics such as race is a bridge too far for scientific-minded individuals, but not for the Organized Left,” member Stacy Washington said. “The idea that a mentally ill person should assume the mantle of civil rights so hard-fought and won by black Americans is insulting.”

Project 21 member Nadra Enzi said that as a black southerner “who grew up fighting what I call ‘Jim Crow-lite’ in the 1970s-1980s, in Savannah, Georgia, home of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, I find the ridiculous transgender/civil rights movement comparison insulting and disrespectful.”

“The White House is pushing a radical agenda that has no support in the language or history of existing civil rights law,” Project 21 co-chairman Horace Cooper said. “And they are pursuing it by threatening to punish the most vulnerable students in public school — withholding lunch and remedial teaching assistance from poor and minority students. This is cruel and divisive and will ultimately be overturned.”

According to The Daily Caller, the federal government warned every government school district in the country to allow boys to walk into girls’ restrooms and changing rooms, or else.
