Here is an example if you have 1000 applicants and 100 positions.
120 applicants are black
40 applicants are hispanic
20 applicants are asian
820 applicants are white
The company is required to hire these type of employees:
12 black people
4 hispanic people
2 asian people
82 white people
It gives equal opportunity for all race groups to cry foul. It is always administered the exact same way every single time.
this is why i said people can only go by the real definitionS
what dont you get?
one specific one isnt required to be provided because neither of them negate the other.
Going by the definition of AA/EEO which is the discussion, there are ZERO definitions of racism that apply to AA/EEO. ZERO
Pick any definition you want and none of them will make AA/EEO racist.
Did you get that time, if not please let me know.
I can't answer the poll because it did not specify a particular period in time.
Affirmative action was necessary at one time to break down real cultural barriers that clearly existed and clearly disadvantaged certain groups of people. But that war has been won and we now need to stop fighting it.
If we are talking about here and now, yes, it is racist to discriminate against people of color or to favor people of color via Affirmative Action. It is racist to assume that a particular group of people cannot make it without 'whitey's' (government) help and it is racist and diminishes excellence for all of us when standards are lowered so one group of people can qualify for no other reason than they are female or people of color or whatever.
Affirmative Action is also cruel to people who are branded 'beneficiaries of Affirmative Action' and token whatever even though they honorably earned their credentials and place in the world on their own initiative. To force that upon people is also unacceptable racism.
