Skip to comments.Obama orders new plan to diversify federal workers
Posted on 08/18/2011 2:21:45 PM PDT by reaganaut1
President Barack Obama has signed an executive order directing the federal government to design a new strategy for hiring, promoting and keeping workers of diverse backgrounds. The three-page order released Thursday directs the head of the Office of Personnel Management, a deputy director at the Office of Management and Budget and two other agencies to develop the strategy within 90 days. Agencies then have 120 days to implement it. An Office of Personnel Management report says that in fiscal year 2010, the federal workforce was 66.2 percent white, 17.7 percent black, 8 percent Hispanic, 5.6 percent Asian/Pacific Islander, 1.8 percent Native American. It was 56.1 percent male.

Don’t forget—he wants to make sure they only hire union workers, too.
Wait, what about the LGBT crowd? Don’t they count?
More federal government efficiency, that’s all we need these day’s.
Per OPM statistics, it looks like the federal workforce already represents the national racial distribution accurately. But that’s not good enough! No, we have to have more racial minorities in federal jobs than in the general population. (shaking my head) So much for my hope of getting a federal job.
That’s worked really well for the presidency! Funny that the United States was a sanctuary for the world and now it’s quickly becoming something to escape from!
Yet another EO is needed from the next President to immediately end all affirm. action in the Feral gov’t.
This is what you call a “jobs for minorities” program. Just one of the many services that will be brought to you by your new Department of Jobs.
I wonder if they intend to do anything about the ideological makeup? 99.9% of Federal employees are entitlement socialists
“the federal workforce was 66.2 percent white, 17.7 percent black, 8 percent Hispanic, 5.6 percent Asian/Pacific Islander, 1.8 percent Native American.”
This looks close to what America looks like, what’s the problem?
0 just announced his “get Whitey” policy.
How many of you think that in this day and age, the FEDERAL GOVERNMENT is failing to hire or retain minorities, women, etc.?
Is there any reason on Earth to think the Federal Government discriminates against its workers? Is it known for being a white male racist clique? Keep spending money liberals on problems that don’t exist.
Feds bust Iraqi-Mexican drug, gun trafficking ring in California, arrest 60
They need to reverse those Hispanic and Black numbers to be more in line with U.S. demographics.
It’s short white folks ~
He’a scared the Blacks are going to abandon him. A 2fer today.
DHS stops deprtaions (illegal votes)
Diversity (quota) for Fed hiring. Hope the white Dum-mies working for the Zero enjoy the unemployment line.
Where are the midgets? Where are the albinos? What about the Albanians?
He’s just piling the crap higher deeper for whoever comes after him!
The problem is, blacks are over represented and hispanics are under represented.
Obama is all geared up to let the USPS, the largest employer of African Americans in the country, go bust ~ and that’s because of the $100,000,000,000 borrowed from them to loan to his international banker buddies.
“Wait, what about the LGBT crowd? Dont they count?”
I would check that box if it would help me get a job, and if I don’t have to prove it.
Well, I’m sure glad I am not white..... wait... I am white, damn.
It's more than just employment. In O's view of a transformed America, everything is directed from the top, i.e., from the Federal government. Making the Federal workforce a minority dominated workforce -- both through hiring, promotion, and white attrition policies -- effectively establishes a minority ruling class in many areas.
I had thought there were 18% black. Just looked, it’s about 12, 13.
I’m sure that Obama is not concerned that there are TOO MANY blacks in fedgov.
And, how about the albinos? Everyone always forgets the albinos.
Way to ramp up the race war the Dems need for 2012. Put this story together with the DHS stopping deportation and you've got quite an ugly agenda. He is literally changing our culture by flooding us with foreigners, and then putting them in positions of authority over the native born, english speaking, taxpaying citizenry. Sounds like Rev. Wright thought up this plan to me.
Fannie is 45% black, Freddie is 50% black.. govt is there to transfer wealth to these folks.. 100k+ do nothing jobs
Hispanics can be of any race. 54% of Hispanics self-identify as white. I wonder how the government decides if you are Hispanic or not. One drop rule?
It means “No Whites Allowed.”
No, this is probably a result of Maxine Waters and her whine. Promote black people. Pretend they have a job and pay them to keep storage of Twinkies and Cheetos in their office drawers.
Since when is your race a “background”? That’s blatant racism.
Obama continues to focus like a laser on racism, his No. 1 priority.
He knows once Holder’s People are hired by the Federal Government the only way to get them out is with a direct hit on Washington, DC.
Blacks make up 12.6 percent of the population,
but they’re 17 percent of the federal employee labor force. Seems to me, they’re already overrepresented in the federal employee workforce.
In other words: “Don’t fire until you see the whites.”
What makes him think they WANT jobs???
Let’s make it more accurate. Cut 5% of the weakest of the black employees, and replace them with intelligent hardworking Asians and watch the productivity go through the freakin’ roof.
I guess affirmative action didn’t lower the standards far enough. He wants a new lowering.
If we go low enough we might match the IQ level of the CBC.
I think Braaack Insane Obozo wants more homosexuals, pedophiles, trans-gendered perverts included.
This is nothing new. The federal government has used race and sex quotas for hiring for many years.
It’s a good thing ‘race doesn’t matter’ because it is being rammed right up white’s rear end.
...for hiring, promoting and keeping workers of diverse backgrounds.The currently "diverse" gov't "work"force will still be immune to disciplinary actions, layoffs, and firings.
Grow a ponytail, get a suntan, wear a brown suede jacket, and call yourself native american. why not? you were born here weren’t you?
If they have almost 18% blacks and 65% whites - when the population is only 12.3 black and 75.1 white - whites and Hispanic are underrepresented and black overrepresented. (Hispanic only at 8% in Fed Gov't but 12.5 in population.
So blacks are hired at a higher rate than others.
Yep, Time to correct that. (I'm SURE that's what O'Bummer is aiming at.)
We need to send the link to this chart to all our reps - and FOX - Rush - et al. Maybe SOMEONE will bring this out.
Maybe so that persecuting Christianity can become official government policy at all levels?
“Per OPM statistics, it looks like the federal workforce already represents the national racial distribution accurately. But thats not good enough! No, we have to have more racial minorities in federal jobs than in the general population. (shaking my head) So much for my hope of getting a federal job.”
I doubt that. Can’t find a copy of the actual order but from the commentary it looks like this is directed at increasing diversity across labor categories and at higher pay grades. IOW, not enough women and minority engineers especially at the GS-15 level.
Actually - the Hispanic is equal to racial makeup - but blacks are only 12.5 of the general populations and whites are 75.1.
Ergo - gotta cut done on blacks and up on whites.
I'm sure that's what will happen. - s/
