If forced to compete on a level field they would rapidly leave the work force. Maybe black males would become employed then
Secretaries, retail store clerks, bank tellers, customer service reps of all kinds ... where are the squads of black men lining up to fill these jobs? "Thanks" to the racist public school system, many don't have the academic skills for even entry-level office work.
I agree with the premise of the article, but I don't think most women got their jobs through gender preferences. Where I worked (a large insurance company) we rarely had men apply for the kinds of paper-shuffling, phone answering jobs most women were doing.

I was speaking really about affirm action being an incentive program that has made work more attractive than it is for the unprotected. Many women are well aware of the hammer they wield when applying for promotions and use it. This all just makes it more attractive than staying home.
