    Lets see well you are smart enough but because of your skin color we cannot allow you into certain classes because they are full with people of color. and you will never be able to get into those classes. so you have to pick another career.

    Yup nothing racist with that

    It's not an attempt at societal unjust discrimination and privilege. It's a system of improving universities.

    Not all discrimination is unjust, not all discrimination is bigotry. And not all bigotry is racism. I understand, these are concepts beyond the average Joe, but these are the facts.

    re: Are Affirmative Action programs racist?[W:110]

    Any program that give preferential treatment while denying such to another person based on skin color is inherently racist. Further more, the very existence of such programs are harmful to the supposed "beneficiaries" as their efforts are in the shadow of said treatment. There is no difference if "The boss only hired him cause he's white too" then there is in "She only got the job cause she's black".

    It's all bull****. AA/EEO is crap. Period. Best qualified candidate, plumbing, skin color, ethnicity should have ZERO baring on the matter.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Yes it is because it grants privilege to some races over other races.

    Whatever.

    Debating with you is like trying to teach a dog to speak Norwegian...time consuming and completely pointless.

    No offense intended.

    Good day.

    Do... you live in the real world?

    A federal appeals court delivered a sharp rebuke to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission today when it upheld the dismissal of the agency’s lawsuit against Kaplan for using credit histories to screen job candidates — the same method the EEOC uses for 87% of its positions.

    In this case, the EEOC accused Kaplan of using credit scores to reject a disproportionate number of African-American candidates for jobs. The appeals-court decision, penned by Judge Raymond Kethledge, doesn’t begin well for the government: “In this case the EEOC sued the defendants for using the same type of background check that the EEOC itself uses.”

    A lower court dismissed the case because the EEOC depended upon flawed statistical evidence to show that using credit checks discriminated against African-Americans A three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati agreed, saying the EEOC expert’s method for proving racial discrimination, which included hiring “race raters” to examine drivers’ license photos of applicants to determine their race, was “not a reliable means to demonstrate disparate impact.”
