    These, for some:

    SET-ASIDES are a form of affirmative action used by governments in contracting government business; they include programs that typically designate a percentage of government contracts or funds (either for services or construction of public works) for minority-owned businesses. In 1977 Congress passed a law that directed 10 percent of federal public works funds to minority-controlled businesses, which the Public Works Employment Act defined as ones in which 50 percent of the business was held by African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Amer-icans,Native Americans,

    Eskimos, or Aleuts. In 2000, federal agencies purchased more than $13 billion in goods and services from minority-owned businesses as part of the program.

    Any Affirmative action program by definition excludes or restricts certain groups to favor other groups.

    I was responding to a direct interpretation and defence of the OP. In that context, other posts are irrelevant.

    Regardless, nobody in the thread has demonstrated pandering to any groups. A couple of people have made claims that is happens but even you yourself have an open challenge to actually back those claims up.

    I directly addressed your question, which was:

    What specific laws have hurt White Christian Males? Are you sad no one pandors you?

    Set asides, college eligibility requirements, employment opportunities, promotion opportunities, even gerrymandering to correct gerrymandering, all are designed to favor one group over another.

    ET-ASIDES are a form of affirmative action used by governments in contracting government business; they include programs that typically designate a percentage of government contracts or funds (either for services or construction of public works) for minority-owned businesses. In 1977 Congress passed a law that directed 10 percent of federal public works funds to minority-controlled businesses, which the Public Works Employment Act defined as ones in which 50 percent of the business was held by African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Amer-icans,Native Americans,

    That's the kind of fact-based rational point this kind of discussion should have been based on in the first place and it was the complete absence of it until your post that people were rightfully challenging. It doesn't seem to be the kind of thing the OP was ranting about and I very much doubt something they know anything about.

    Personally, I don't like affirmative action though I recognise the good intentions. I don't see it as pandering to anyone but as an attempt to counteract established discrimination. Anyone disadvantaged by the affirmative action should theoretically only loose advantages that, all being equal, they wouldn't have in the first place. In practice, affirmative action doesn't work all that well and it's something that should be rightly phased out.
