    huh?

    I think you are saying a black rapper is looking for 5 back up dancers
    25 people are auditioning for the five spots
    20 are white, 5 are black

    and you want to know who i think gets the 5 spots?


    I have no idea, who are the best dancers, are they touring or doing a video, whats the message/theme or story of the song.

    I have no idea lol theres no logic to support a guess.

    3.) A minority doesn't have to be the best...he just has to be qualified.
    1.)it doesnt allow anything in regards to HIRING - remove unwanted stones
    2.) lol theres nothing to face, thats factually not true, by definition thats 100% false
    3.) this maybe true for some companies but those companies are not practicing AA/EO

    You could also argue it cultivates racism by giving others a codified metric to point to or internalize when considering the inferiority or 'otherness' of minorities e.g. 'They are dumber, that is why we have to give them special assistance'.

    Sure, that was part of the expectations part but you say it prettier. It really amazes me that how patronizing even the left's rhetoric is toward blacks when it comes to welfare and they never discuss black crime seriously unless it involves blaming the courts for giving them longer sentences or people for not giving them more money as if they are incapable of exercising any personal responsibility.

    That leads me to another point. These laws were made for equality purposes when things like segregating and discrimination were much more prevalent. We don't really have these problems anymore for the most part (except for perhaps small pockets). That is one reason why these kinds of laws just perpetuate racism, discrimination and hard feelings.

    and this argument would fall right on its face since AA/EO factually gives no special assistance to anybody but ensures equality for everyone.

    Who does it gibe special assistance too? since it makes sure that men, women, religions, races, ages, people with disabilities etc all get an opportunity
