Skip to comments.Obama adviser: White males need not apply
Posted on 01/22/2009 8:41:23 PM PST by RobinMasters
A top economic adviser to President Obama has told a congressional panel the billions of dollars in the proposed economic stimulus plan should be allocated with social issues in mind, to make sure the money doesn't go to just "white male construction workers" or the highly skilled.
Robert Reich, who served as labor secretary under President Clinton, was speaking to the House Steering and Policy Committee Jan. 7 about funding infrastructure projects across the nation.
"It seems to me that infrastructure spending is a very important and good way of stimulating the economy. The challenge will be to do it quickly, to find projects that can be done that will have a high social return, that also can be done with the greatest speed possible," Reich said.
"I am concerned, as I'm sure many of you are, that these jobs not simply go to high skilled people who are already professionals or to white male construction workers," he said.

obama is a nitwit
I hate to repeat this, but government sponsored racism has been occurring for some years now, right under Bush’s nose and the Republican majority.
Imagine being a white guy looking for job, and the first thing you see on a job ad is, “Minorities and women encouraged to apply”.
In other words, “male whites” need not apply.
Construction is the only job that white males are allowed to do these days, they certainly aren’t allowed any other jobs due to affirmative action, unless of course they are college educated. What do they want? To completely destroy those who are still willing to work for a living? Will they please leave these hardworking family men alone? The other men could do it do if they weren’t so busy living off their girlfrinds on welfare.
What evidence is there that he can think an English thought. I think he's a dumbass.
“..that these jobs not simply go to high skilled people who are already professionals or to white male construction workers,” he said
WHO is going to do these jobs then? I don’t want to drive over a repaired bridge built by illegal immigrants or Acorn project rejects.
The little twit needs to resign as an adviser.
obama thinks in kenyan keyenisiam
And at the same meeting Charlie Rangel opined that they didn’t just want to send the money to the states without strings attached because the states would want to spend it on projects they wanted without perhaps sending it to minorities in the cities - should make the state legislators happy.....
Translation: Let's use the ruse of 'infrastructure spending' to socially engineer redistribution of wealth to everyone but those paying the most taxes or the most qualified to do the work.
Because we all know inner-city kids are better at repairing roads and bridges.
He's gonna lose his street cred ( snicker ) having the man do his talking for him.
1) He dissed our men in service by ignoring their event at the inauguration
2) Picked a fight with China over currency, possibly starting a trade war
3) Put through 5 presidential directives on his first day- more than any president in history
4) Closed the only place we have to house our enemies in this war (Gitmo)
5) Proposes talks with Hamas
6) An advisor puts his foot in his mouth about "white male construction workers" (and they thought GW Bush said dumb things)
7) Actually argued with the Pope about abortion
8) Actually complained about a tough question while visiting the White House press room
There are probably more, but I will have to leave that up to observant FReepers to write. This moron is going to be the biggest bust, the greatest horror this nation has ever seen.
He will pave the way for Sarah Palin to rescue us. I say he won't make it two years before the calls for impeachment come.
Exactly. And they’re still figuring out how to claim that giving money to the ignorant and unproductive will increase the GNP. I expect the spin-doctors are working overtime tonight.
Like white guys would ever get reparations.
And to think this dwarf has a doctorate. Let us instead make sure that these jobs go to unskilled people who are not already professionals. By all means, let's have bridges built by people who sing, dance, and play basketball instead of studying hard subjects.
Please keep this list and I’m sure you will.
one major thing tho- Ya’ don’t argue with the Pope in
public. He’s and his “campaigne have been dissing
the Pope the whole time Obama started his nonsense.
Ya’ just don’t do that! 0b0z0 is a nitwit... he probably
doesn’t even know how to spell Benedict and when ya’ diss
the Pope you are dissing Western Civilization, am I not
correct?(in the larger sense of the word)
