    no they are not

    AA is factually part of EEO and used in hiring process as i have to use them when i recruit. They are even called AA/EEO policies.

    I posted his entire definition.

    Edited to add: I do not particularly care for his definition and it isn't the one I use, but it is as valid as any.

    Perhaps if you read the definition again:

    2. a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
    Blacks could only foster such a doctrine if the doctrine existed in the first place. As a minority power, it is IMPOSSIBLE for blacks to institute or foster such a system-wide doctrine.

    As blacks are powerless to institute or perpetuate a system of privilege (which DOES exist for whites in this country), they are not capable of racism. They can be bigots (and that should be condemned), but that bigotry does not affect society as a whole, it does not permeate society.

    I recognize it, and I completely disagree with that point of view, to the point of mocking said view for the crap it is.
    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.

    It's amazing what some people will pretend is racist, just to apologize for real racism.

    Are there people that have been caught to have programs like that and they call them AA/EEO? yes and that is illegal what they were doing and was not AA/EEO.
    Most job applications (excluding religious organizations) that I have filled out in my life has a statement at the bottom that says they are an Equal Opportunity Employer. It is required by law to treat job applicants fairly independent of their race, gender, religion, nation of origin, etc.

    You know what Affirmative Action is but you think it is fun to be an a$$. I'm not buying it. You know what Affirmative Action is and you know that it is illegal. I will disregard your game of pretend designed to piss people off. Stop bulking Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity together unless your intention is to be a dishonest liar that pisses people off. If that is your goal, then carry on with your stupidity.
