    Basically AJ, it's giving priority to minorities. Because some companies are mandated to follow AA protocols, they DO employ quotas whether it is done purposefully or not.

    You have already exposed yourself as either being utterly disingenuous or having no idea what you are talking about.

    my problem with AA is that it claims to "level the playing field" but it doesn't. If you have 2 guys apply for the same job and they are both equally educated, have the same amount of relevent experience, etc, etc, (IOW they are equal in all respects) the minority guy is going to get the job based soley on the color of his skin.

    hiring a guy just because he is black is just as discriminatory as hiring a guy simply because he is white.

    re: Institutional Racism [W:344]

    Every time a number is applied to any given race it is racism. Racists separate and so do statistics. I see three whites then two whites and one non white my description is racists. The stupid concept of racial blindness is the greatest danger ever to race relations. If a black marries a white one says their spouse is not the same race that is racism because it too separates. What the scholars in the stupid society preach is war bait. Instead of "we are all alike" why not, "we are as different as it is possible to be different but we don't give a ****".
    It's nothing more than X's and O's.

    but it FACTUALLY does not
    if they employ qoutas they are breaking the law and are NOT practicing AA/EO.

    this fact will not change and ORGS that have been caught doing so have been fine and had crinial charges levied again them.

    SO unless i ignore facts what you are saying simply is not true.

    what you just described would be wrong and is factually not AA/EO.

    No, when you have to give a specific race or minority a certain advantage that others don't have, that is unfair and this practice should be ended. The only thing that should be taken into consideration is someone's merit. Colleges should be blind to the color of an applicant's skin, and so should businesses. AA only perpetuates racism.

    actually that is exactly whata AA does. it doesn't lower any standards, but it does allow an employer to hire a minority over an equally qualified white. with minority status being the determining factor.
