Officials working on the new Minnesota Vikings stadium said it might be difficult to meet certain employee-diversity goals.
The stadium legislation signed by Gov. Mark Dayton this spring included goals from the state Legislature to have minority workers make up nearly a third of the labor force and for women to be 6 percent of the workforce.

Celebrating the fact that people are different, while at the same time pretending not to notice that people are different.
Di longer you verk here, diverse it gets.
You wouldn’t want the most qualified and talented workers, only the ones that make you meet the diversity goals.
It never occurs to the liberals that their diversity goals are the very source of their problems.
Kinda like Monica Conyers informing bidders that contractors that don’t “look like us” need not apply.
All one has to do is look at our AA POTUS, his “diverse” czar’s and entire administration for that matter to see that that utopian dream just doesn’t cut it in the real world. An “Epic Fail” any way you cut it.
I can already see how this will be remedied. They'll have actual qualified construction workers doing the labor and a bunch of diversity hires sitting around collecting a paycheck.
Just do what most companies have been forced to do:
Hire the required number of minorities and have competent people follow them around doing the work for them and fixing their screw-ups.
When you have equality, diversity is the result. Diversity should never be the goal, equality should be.
What’s diversity in Minnesota? An Irish person?
If they could pass the drug test, I’m sure the Step #2 in Diversity Challenge was even more daunting:
1. Please read “See spot run.”
2. Which is larger? 5 or 1?
3. What color is the sky?

I had a contract with TVA that required lisitng racial minorities. There was no quota, just reporting.
A young man, a full blooded Alaskan Eskimo, (iniuit?) wandered in looking looking for a job. I hired him to work in the metal fab shop. He was a good worker.
Later, my book keeper asked me about him and the TVA report. She asked him and reported his presence. Later, I got a call from the Department of Labor regional office in Atlanta advising of the penalty for false reporting and really, did I have an bonefide Eskimo.
The answer was no, he was jailed for drunkeness and assault and couldn’t come to work. He had followed a girl to East Tennessee and her father was severely pissed off. He called the Sheriff and the kid was arrested.
Even later we learned he hung himself in jail. It was true love gone very, very bad.
Hmong and Somalis!
EVERY SINGLE employee that worked for the airport, not counting the airlines, just the airport, was black.
Security, sweepers, food court workers (even at the chinese food counter), the guys that drove the golf carts, every single one.
Hazel eyes and dark hair got plenty of “yer not from ‘round here” in Minnesota, in my exposure.
The kid neither drinks or smokes and hates drugs after seeing the fate of a lot of his contemporaries. Hates hot foods though, Marchant stomach.
Good teeth, worse than the English.
Stupid, besides being illegal, unconstitutional and unfair.
You got that right.
I notice that in Philadelphia, too.
As for the food workers, they probably spit in the food.
Good. Glad to hear it.
I hope the Vikings only hire 13% blacks on their team, just to be consistent.
There is no end to anti-white bias and it’s legal.
Lowering standards so the 3rd workers appear more competent while lowering the overall qualiity.
This is why Govenrment will never shrink as it creates an artificial upper middle class for those people, guided as legitimate work.
Hartford, CT too. Just about any airport. Or, govt. managed rest stop on the Mass. Turnpike. White people need not apply.
don't know about Somalis....
The third question gets them tossed into the pit....

I lived in Alpharetta north of Atlanta for about a year. the workers you observed were the rudest people I’ve ever encountered...lazy generally PO’d about everything (especially having to wait upon a customer). I’ve never seen such big chips on shoulders in my life. You see where the grievance-mongering originates. That was quite an education.
The elusive Equal Opportunity Holy Grail Candidate.
A mixed race (that includes 1/4 African descent, 1/4 Native American descent, 1/4 hispanic) diabled female eskimo lesbian with a union card......
It’s not just the ATL airport, it’s the entire City of Atlanta Government, the State Government anywhere the AA Diversity quota’s are in place . . . and the “chip” is huge!
Wanted: Workers to build new Minnesota Vikings stadium. Skilled and intelligent people need not apply.
I can see you have been to Atlanta.
As an example of the shennanigans that go on due to the City of Atlanta controlling the airport, former mayor Bill Campbell fired the ATL airport administrator at the time, Angela Gittens, because she wasn’t giving contracts to Bill’s cronies. She had been recognized by her peers as the best airport administrator in the country the year before.
Bill later spent some time in the Federal pen for corruption.
It is long past time for the State to take that plaything away from the City of Atlanta.
Shut the project down and say, “Sorry, folks. Can’t do it.”
