Background Checks are Racist


Biden’s botched recreation of Trump’s convenience store stop has resulted in more than a failed campaign attempt. On the same day that Joe Biden shuffled through Sheetz, a privately owned convenience store chain with 700 stores across six states, an organization in line with his administration decided to file a lawsuit against Sheetz for violating civil rights laws.

What did the convenience store chain do to violate human rights? The corporation requests that their employees undergo a background check as part of the employment process. Every single government agency requires a lengthy background check process, but it is (D)ifferent! The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) claims that Sheetz is disproportionately targeting Black Americans by requesting background checks. So, they are already stating that they believe minorities are more likely to have committed a criminal offense, which in itself seems hypocritical.

“Diversity and inclusion are essential parts of who we are. We take these allegations seriously. We have attempted to work with the EEOC for nearly eight years to find common ground and resolve this dispute,” a company spokesperson stated. The EEOC states in their lawsuit that Sheetz has violated Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. “Federal law mandates that employment practices causing a disparate impact because of race or other protected classifications must be shown by the employer to be necessary to ensure the safe and efficient performance of the particular jobs at issue,” touted EEOC attorney Debra M. Lawrence, who claims the company has been using these discriminatory background checks since 2015 to prevent minorities from seeking employment.

The background check process is equal for all races as they simply look at one’s criminal history. There is absolutely no possible way to alter the results of the background check – someone either has a criminal past or not. The EEOC said that White Americans had a failure rate of under 8% with Sheetz, compared to Black Americans and Native Americans, who had a failure rate of 14.5% and 13%.

Of no surprise, Sheetz, a family company, previously made a large donation to the National Republican Congressional Committee before the 2020 US Presidential Election.

Everything is considered racist in woke America. Bail has been deemed racist. School admissions are racist, as are the admissions tests for law and medical schools. They have even called climate change racist. There are calls for the elimination of credit checks, too, since they are also racist, and lenders should not base their decisions on someone’s financial history. The entire premise of DEI is that society is inherently racist and equality should not be based on the content of one’s character but solely on race.
