The Obama administration, already under fire for unprecedented allegations of racial bias, faces a new bias claim from a most unlikely source: one of the administration's own inspectors general.
Decisions on which car dealerships to close as part of the auto industry bailout -- closures the Obama administration forced on General Motors and Chrysler -- were based in part on race and gender, according to a report by Troubled Asset Relief Program Special Inspector General Neal M. Barofsky.

www.americanthinker.com/2010/07/race_played_role_in_obama_car.html I've been hearing about this for some time now as I know many of the car dealers in my area that got closed down and the ones that stayed. It sure does look like that "social justice" is just reverse discrimination with a different name. Does it seem like we are "post racial" now? What gives the government the right to pick and choose winners? What gives them the right to pick those winners based on race or sex? Is this "social justice"? Do you really believe that equal justice is wrong and we need the federal government to make things "right"? These dealers worked their butts off to build a business and the government steps in and closes them down. They paid a lot of money to start and keep their dealerships and now they have nothing but debt and large properties that no one wants. This is wrong no matter what party you belong to. And to discriminate based on sex and color is wrong no matter who it is against.
