As we all know too well, there are some racists among us who work very hard to ensure that day never arrives.
In the US, as designed, laws are about individuals. You can not be held accountable for the actions of others unless it can be proved you coerced or otherwise may be partly responsible for their actions. And you do not have rights because of a group you belong to. You have INDIVIDUAL rights.
It means that unless they are throwing out what this country is based on, you cannot decide any single case based on a larger picture. Either there is evidence that a particular applicant was discriminated against, or there isn’t. Anything beyond that is wealth redistribution.
It is that black and white. (no pun intended)
Were there any tests to test for "qualifications" or is that forbidden?
Iowa now might have more Hispanics than African-Americans. The fact that Hispanic immigration, legal and illegal, is costing African-Americans their treasured places on the Affirmative Action scam list and on the Welfare line may dawn on them soon.
NEWSFLASH! Once their beloved Democratic Party started getting more votes from the Latinos than from them, it stands to reason that the Latinos are going to get more of those gubmint goodies. Hello!
So, now the thought police are going to punish eveyrone for what is allegedly sub-consciously thought, instead of what is consciously done?
—Were there any tests to test for “qualifications” or is that forbidden?—
Exactly. That is why it has to be done on a case by case basis. Conversely, The MAIN reason we have more black males in prison is that black males commit more crime. In some cases it was based on discrimination, but that must be determined on a case by case basis. We don’t just let them all out.
The Hispanic racist lobby decided that they could increase their total pool of stuff from the government by making the definition of "Hispanic" so broad that just about anybody could qualify. My wife's paternal grandparents were born in Puerto Rico, so my kids could qualify (if we wanted to play that card).
The Native American lobby, on the other hand, decided to make the definition as tight as possible so there would be fewer people to divvy up with. I have more total Native American blood than many of those playing the race card. But because it comes from multiple tribes, the individual contributions are not enough to qualify for anything. So my Dad had no choice but to get off the reservation and make it in white man's world.
American blacks may soon be facing the same dilemma.
Gov’t has no right picking winners and losers.
It has no right interfering in the economy or
American society at all.
Novel approach. In all instances where a Black applicant is not hired, discrimination has occurred.
It’s tough to get a job when you don’t go looking for one. Homey doesn’t want to work. It’s ‘’acting white’’ and Homey don’t play that.
Someone once spoke of a dream that his children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.
“So, now the thought police are going to punish eveyrone for what is allegedly sub-consciously thought, instead of what is consciously done?”
The next step is for “liberals” to officially declare all white Americans to be racists as in the Duluth Minnesota Billboard campaign, and thus second class citizens in American law.
Eric “My People” Holder has already said as much by testifying before a Senate Committee that white Americans are not protected by Hate Crime laws. And his Holder Youth have taken the cue and are violent assaulting whites coast to coast with “flash mobs” as the Corrupt Liberal Media looks the other way.
This is just another imaginary offense fabricated by greedy lawyers trolling for another big series of class action settlements.
Apparently they feel they didn’t steal enough from the economy with their outrageous tobacco lawsuits.
Any and every Black person in America knows only too well that bad luck, illiteracy, and garden variety stupdity are all Whitey’s fault.
(It serves to distract you from the fact that your children are being slaughtered by design in abortion mills.)
“This touches upon the most fundamental principles of our Constitution and why the anti-discrimination rulings of the 60’s were wrong and all EEOC rulings have been in violation of our Constitution. A private company/corporation is exactly what it says—PRIVATE. The government, both local and federal, should have absolutely no say in who they hire, what criteria they use for hiring, or who the choose to serve and what criteria they use to make that decision.
That is the essence of freedom and anti-discrimination laws are the essence of state bondage and slavery. Call me a racist if you wish, the state has absolutely no business telling an employer who they can or must hire or why.”
If a Korean restaurant only wants to serve Koreans, they should be able to. If an Indian business only wants to employ Indians, they should not have to answer to anyone else for doing so.
If someone doesn’t like it, let them start their own restaurant or business.
“The fact that Hispanic immigration, legal and illegal, is costing African-Americans their treasured places on the Affirmative Action scam list and on the Welfare line may dawn on them soon.”
They’re slow to pick up on that; I see whole departments where the clerical staff is 100% Hispanic (in “black” neighborhoods).
Now that employees have their pick of job seekers, who is going to hire someone with an affirmative action diploma/degree?
“Either there is evidence that a particular applicant was discriminated against, or there isnt.”
Once the state decided to give blacks unearned diplomas and degrees as reparations, it has to pretend that they have some value.
Simple, short essays can usually determine whether or not an applicant has basic English skills (whether that applicant is white, black, brown, yellow, whatever); if this is a requirement for a job opening you are posting, it is best to screen applicants along these lines. You’d be surprised how many people write exactly how they speak (phonetically); it is sad, and even sadder because nobody will be honest with them and tell them they are 10 years behind any fifteen year-old.
I’ve got a question for some of you lawyers out there.
How is that a new “legal theory” can be rejected again and again by the courts. The one court accepts it, and all of a sudden it is a binding precedent?
How come the rejections weren’t taken as “binding precedents”? Is the law a one way ratchet for socialism, race-hatred, and Satan?
