Obama Administration Is Considering Using Executive Power To Enact Racial Segregation In Hawaii
By Kevin Boyd

The Obama Administration is once again preparing to use the power of the pen to create new law. It’s a move that could wreck havoc on race relations in the United States

Fifty years after the end of Jim Crow, a law which enabled racial segregation in parts of the country, the Secretary of the Interior is considering creating a separate racial state for Native Hawaiians. From the Cato Institute:

In a classic Friday-afternoon news dump – and on the eve of a holiday weekend, no less – the Interior Department issued an advance notice of proposed rule-making (ANPR) to “solicit public comments on whether and how the Department of the Interior should facilitate the reestablishment of a government-to-government relationship with the Native Hawaiian community.”

This would be an end-run around both Congress and the Constitution, marking the first step toward the creation of a race-based government in Hawaii.

Further investigation by a Hawaiian think tank reveals that the Administration has been planning its new proposal since 2012.

This alarming move raises several very important questions:

#1 – Where does the Obama administration get the authority to establish such a government without the consent of Congress?

#2 – Would such a racially-based government violate the 14th and 15th Amendments, which protect against the violation of due process and racial discrimination?

#3 – Would this be extended to other racial and ethnic groups?

#4 – Does this just pour gasoline on the fire of Hawaii’s independence movement?

In other words, this seems like a needlessly divisive action by the Obama administration that could have major consequences for the country.
