Skip to comments.I Agree With Sen. Webb: It's Time to End Federal Diversity Efforts
Posted on 08/10/2010 6:49:09 AM PDT by flowerplough
Last week, The Wall Street Journal carried an op-ed piece written by Sen. James Webb, D-Va. "A plethora of government-enforced diversity policies have marginalized many white workers," wrote Webb. "The time has come to cease the false arguments and allow every American the benefit of a fair chance at the future."
Although the sound bite from his essay may be distressing to those traditionally underrepresented and his comments came on the heels of last week's poorly handled Shirley Sherrod incident, which illustrated a lack of diversity management in the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the White House, I think, in total, Webb's full article deserves serious discussion and consideration.

Webb is on the right track; I see that when diversity efforts are relegated to compliance, white people can be marginalized. "Diversity" and EEO ends up meaning "a program for everyone but white men."

(*James Webb Writes About Incest and Pedophilia http://www.stoptheaclu.com/2006/10/17/james-webb-writes-about-incest-and-pedophilia/
For reasons I cannot fathom, in Webbs book, Lost Soldiers, he has a scene that features incestuous pedophilia. Now heres the kicker: not only is it a completely gratuitous scene, the characters in the book, bizarrely, dont even seem to react to a sex act being performed on a child in front of them. )
yes it is but too many are making money off of so it will never end.
The U.S. adds one international migrant (net) every 36 seconds. Immigrants account for one in 8 U.S. residents, the highest level in more than 80 years. In 1970 it was one in 21; in 1980 it was one in 16; and in 1990 it was one in 13. In a decade, it will be one in 7, the highest it has been in our history. And by 2050, one in 5 residents of the U.S. will be foreign-born. 87% of the 1.2 million LEGAL IMMIGRANTS who enter annually are minorities and almost all of the 500,000 to 1 million who enter illegally each year are minorities.
If you compose half of the country, can you still refer to yourself as a minority?
obama’s regime has just re-written the hiring guidance for federal jobs to make the fed govt even MORE affirmative action directed. I believe agencies are already being briefed on new requirements, such as setting aside “top 3” candidates and concentrating on “diversity” and preferences
written essays are no longer required as part of application- to admit more people who can’t write, like obama and meshell
I tell ya, if yer looking for govt work, it’s a great time in American history to be a black female lesbian veteran
he is pandering to a very angry electorate. besides the elites in fairfax the rest of the state is turning deep red once again. i didn’t believe his sincerity in that wsj post for a second. the new pentagon cuts are another attack on the people of VA that he has to manage as well.
6Using the same logic the Left used on Gay Marraige ‘equal protection’. All diversity laws are unconstitutional.
We shall see. Maybe we will all be minorities. FYI: 54% of Hispanics, a made up categroy just like Asians, self-describe themselves as white.
Obamacare contains the same kinds of preferences for doctors and medical schools.
“I tell ya, if yer looking for govt work, its a great time in American history to be a black female lesbian veteran”
It’s funny, but it isn’t funny.
Whites have been complaining over reverse racism for years.
Being passed over because of quota’s requiring minority promotion is no fun.Promotion exams have to be especially written so as not to be discriminate to any race or gender.
All applicants for promotion have access to the same study materials, but that isn’t enough, we need special questions that will help promote certain minorities, and when even that doesnt work , they change the way the test is scored or they use oral board that is told to pick minorities. One way or the other they will meet the quota, and promote over more qialified applicants.
I think he just busted the back of his coalition ~ so call his next campaign "Broke Back, Pouting" 'cause this sucker is gonna' lose so bad!
RE: “a great time in American history to be a black female lesbian veteran
And in England, “Countryside Restoration Trust chairman and columnist Robin Page said at a rally against the Government’s anti-hunting laws in Gloucestershire in 2002: “If you are a black vegetarian Muslim asylum-seeking one-legged lesbian lorry driver, I want the same rights as you.” Page was arrested, and after four months he received a letter saying no charges would be pressed, but that: “If further evidence comes to our attention whereby your involvement is implicated, we will seek to initiate proceedings.” It took him five years to clear his name.
Page was at least an adult. In September 2006, a 14-year-old schoolgirl, Codie Stott, asked a teacher if she could sit with another group to do a science project as all the girls with her spoke only Urdu. The teacher’s first response, according to Stott, was to scream at her: “It’s racist, you’re going to get done by the police!” Upset and terrified, the schoolgirl went outside to calm down. The teacher called the police and a few days later, presumably after officialdom had thought the matter over, she was arrested and taken to a police station, where she was fingerprinted and photographed. According to her mother, she was placed in a bare cell for 3 1/2 hours. She was questioned on suspicion of committing a racial public order offence and then released without charge.”
Sen. Webb is the biggest POS in the entire Senate. A man of no principle and gutless. Who cares what the man thinks.
How do we tolerate “police” who go along with this sh&&?!
He owes his 1000 vote victory to “Macaca”
Your comment troubles me. Webb is a decorated Marine officer, Annapolis grad and former Sec’y of the Navy; qualifications like that don’t just fall in your lap.
I’ve read about his “unusual” subject matter in his writing, but the rest of what is alleged is truly horrible.
The trends will not necessarily be maintained past the point where the welfare state collapses, which I expect to happen real soon now. It's a different game when each child needs to be fully supported by its mom without assistance.
Dream on. The welfare system will be the last thing to collapse. The next thing to go will be DOD. We will have to choose between guns and butter, just like the Brits and the Europeans did. Like them, we will choose butter to keep our welfare system going.
