Dollar General said it will "vigorously defend" against the suit.
If the rules were equally applied, there is no case. Otherwise, BMW will pay.
Sounds like a destined-to-fail lawsuit intended to gin-up turnout and contributions from the key Obama voting bloc.
55% of the employees at the plant were black? Seems to me BMW ought to get a commendation for hiring MORE than the population entails....
According to the Obama Census Ministry:
blacks only make up 28% of the population of South Carolina, which means BMW had an OVER-REPRESENTATION of black employees.
“...despite blacks constituting only 55% of employees.”
55%!!!!! Looks to me like that other races need to be filing discrimination claims.
Non union plant, isn’t it.
My car came from there.
Elephant in the room—The fact that criminal background check policies have a disproportionate impact on African-Americans.
Maybe if African-Americans obeyed the law. . .
Effing fascist government!
“Statistically, blacks and Latinos face criminal convictions at a rate disproportionately greater than their representation in the population.”
Well, Duh! Maybe if they did not commit crimes disproportionately to their representation in the population there would be no problem! Again the law abiding are supposed to bend over for criminals because of racial background. What incentive is there for obeying the law? Damned if you do and rewarded if you don’t.
I must be on the wrong planet. Beam me up Scotty!
What kind of impact do laws have then?
This is nothing more than the Federal Government forcing companies to hire black criminals.
We are a mini South Africa with Obama in the White House.
A white heterosexual male Christian is in trouble.
19.7% of the Blacks were denied re-hire due to criminal records vs. 6% of non-blacks.
Sounds about right.
“Criminal background check”??? OMG!!! How DARE they! /s
These convicts were using up jobs that could have gone to deserving Unregistered Democrats.
They've gotta prove that a black with a particular record was turned down when a white with an identical record was hired.*That* could well be discrimination.Without such proof....no discrimination.
Accidental admission by big brother that a higher percentage of blacks are criminals.
So now it’s racist to make sure you’re not employing a violent ex-con?
Welcome to Obama’s America, where freedom is slavery, war is peace and ignorance is strength
Well, they should not have committed a "disproportionate" amount of the crimes.......
I guess I make a special effort to shop at DG.
When will the EEOC enforce strict quotas on the NBA based on population?
