How Trump’s Policies Are Fueling the Culture Wars

from TIME 

U.S. President Donald Trump is on course to reverse decades-old efforts to empower and protect minorities. Affirmative action policies at colleges and universities are being reviewed by the Justice Department. Trump supports curbs on immigration of non-English speakers and proposed a ban on transgender people in the military. He says it’s time to stop political correctness.

But civil rights’ advocates promise him a fight at every turn — and a philosophically divided Supreme Court will likely be the final arbiter on the most contentious issues.
Trump’s backers say the change in tone is welcome. “Diversity is a way of justifying discrimination — hiring people based on their race, and that’s a violation of federal law,” said Hans von Spakovsky, a lawyer at the conservative Heritage Foundation. “That’s what the prior administration wanted to ignore.”
