Tax Reform Gone Wrong: Exposing The High Cost Of Trump Tax Cuts For People Of Color

Conference LogoTax panel at the yesterday's Conference on Coalitions of Color and the Rule of Law in the Trump Administration at UNLV, jointly sponsored by Western Law Professors of Color and the Conference of Asian Pacific American Law Faculty:

TaxReform Gone Wrong: Exposing the High Cost of Trump Tax Cuts for People of Color:

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, also known as #TrumpTaxCuts, made sweeping changes to our tax laws. Far from addressing, fixing, or improving institutional racism in the tax code that financially disadvantages people of color, the new law strengthened some of these provisions and even added new ones. The panel of tax scholars will deconstruct and discuss these changes and suggest how we might move forward.

The Plantation's on fire and it will burn down, dearest Democratic Party. Nothing you can do to stop it.

I wish there was more to this than a picture, because I probably disagree with the premise. Wonder if they address 199A, EITC, child tax credit?

I strongly suspect that everything discussed is facially neutral with regard to race. What they are complaining about is disparate impact. Which is not prima facie discrimination.
