    Racial quotas in employment and education are numerical requirements for hiring, promoting, admitting and/or graduating members of a particular racial group. Racial quotas are often established as means of diminishing racial discrimination, addressing under-representation and evident racism against those racial groups. Some individuals consider racial quotas reverse racism. Racial quotas are closely linked to notions of group rights, and special rights.

    These quotas may be determined by governmental authority and backed by governmental sanctions. When the total number of jobs or enrollment slots is fixed, this proportion may get translated to a specific number. In education, this kind of quota is also known as Numerus clausus.

    re: Institutional Racism [W:344]

    To those who are saying that there are racial quotas: Please show me evidence. I mean hardcore, irrefutable evidence that there are quotas, not twisting words or giving your 'interpretation' of what is being said/done, I just want hardcore in my face evidence that there are racial/gender quotas.

    The fact remains colleges and employers have broken the law and been found guilty for having quotas.
    Sorry you simply dont understand what AA/EO is.
    So you go by something written on paper - wikipedia, at that.

    You'd make a piss-poor lawyer. Believing that quotas don't exist, don't happen, and are illegal is naivete on a ridiculous scale.

    Most workplaces do not have legally required percentages of minorities. Having said that, they will still hire minorities for many purposes, ranging from small tax breaks to public perception of fairness. This is why the term "token" was created.

    If AA was used to completely level the playing field and make people based solely on merit instead of race, I'd be more than fine with it. However, it has been mutated greatly from its original concept and is now being used as a political tool and weapon.

    Affirmative action - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    Law regarding quotas and affirmative action varies widely from nation to nation. Caste based quotas are used in Reservation in India. However, they are illegal in the United States, where no employer, university, or other entity may create a set number required for each race.[6]
    AA is EO
    http://www.dol.gov/ofccp/regs/compliance/aa.htm
    Executive Order numerical goals do not create set-asides for specific groups, nor are they designed to achieve proportional representation or equal results.
    and AA/EO is
    http://www.dol.gov/ofccp/regs/compliance/aa.htm
    The contractor will not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. The contractor will take affirmative action to ensure that applicants are employed, and that employees are treated during employment, without regard to their race, color, religion, sex or national origin.

    What part of "sanctioned by the government" do you not understand? Just because no actual number is named for the quota, that doesn't mean an implicit number is not required to avoid all manners of penalties and public defamation of whatever company is in question. The government can send someone into a business and tell them they lack diversity - guess what? You now have an implicit quota. AA / EO are the movements that whine to the government in the first place and the get the ball rolling.

    Im sorry facts prove you wrong and this upsets you but the facts wont change.

    Yes the government can look into and find out if people are using unfair practices to hire
    there is no NUMBER required only that you practice AA/EO which is OPPORTUNITY not EMPLOYMENT

    maybe you should read all the info on those sites that prove you wrong so you understand the facts better

    the article that the wikipedia entry is sourced from makes no mention of quotas, or their legality. Also, while it's true the term 'quota" has fallen in disfavor, you will find institutions simply use words like "target" "critical mass", or terms like 'preferences"
