In order for any Bill to be turned into a Law, it is required to win the voting approval of the US House of Representatives and the US Senate. Only
after getting their approval does the President get to sign (or veto) the Bill into Law.
The Racial Statistics for the US House and US Senate are as follows:
Racial Composition of the 110th Congress
Native American: 1
As you see, the Congress is overwhelmingly White with 413 of 535 members of Congress being White (77%). Therefore, you cannot claim this is racist as
it was obviously voted for by a white majority Congress.
racial discrimination - discriminatory or abusive behavior towards members of another race
Now, taking the definition of racial discrimination and applying it to this situation is simply incorrect. Firstly, the definition requires that the
white majority congress would have to be acting in a discriminatory or abusive way against another racial group. As it is a white majority congress
taxing something which everyone keeps claiming is used predominately by whites (statistics please?), this cannot apply. A racial group cannot act in
a racially discriminatory way against itself.
Please think about the implications of what you are saying in context.
