They didn’t want to hear that, did they? They were looking for programs, emphasis, assistance, consideration, and all that, weren’t they? They were looking for a deliberate program that took into account anything racial, and nothing qualified (except for the token, “of course, we’re assuming they’re qualified” mantra).

In my field defense engineering, accepting nothing less than the best is an ethical lapse in my opinion because our soldiers lives’ depended on it. Diversity on its own merit was not justification for engangering our military.

Yep. We didn't give them what they were expecting, so either they stuck their fingers in their ears and walked away, or couldn't comprehend the idea and walked away. End result was the same, either way.

Mrs WBill used to work for a gov't agency. She was tasked to hire a person, given a stack of resumes, and directed to "give preference to qualified minorities".

Humor, and wise-a** comments aside, how do you tell what color a person is from their resume? Government policy is endlessly fascinating to me.

Mrs WBill's brilliant idea? She picked the 2 or 3 resumes she liked and called the rest "unqualified". Problem solved.

And, the girl that she wound up hiring, who my wife said was easily the best person to come in the door, was a minority. Go figure.
