That is a bunch of bullshit. You know, I am so sick of this race card shit in todays society. It's like, if you dont hire minorities, you get called a racist and get charged with ethical violations. Say you have 10 black males, 6 hispanic males, and 20 white males, each apply for a chance at one out of four jobs. If four highly qualified candidates are white, and you hire all white, the race card is thrown out. It's like you have to hire minorities just to avoid ethical violations.

I shudder when people say "the race card" point of matter is would minorities EVERY be hired. Past experiences have shown that minorities, as a general group, would not get hired.

People say "race card" as is this will simply explain and dimiss the situation. Or as if today we all woke up and minorities were on an equal playing field with whites. We aren't, and pretending to be won't make us so.

What is telling is that "About 70 percent of the officers on another promotion list were minorities. From that list, the chief hired only three people over six months, Cordero said."

This is what is called an unexplained disparagy.

We can see the effects of Affirmative Action...when states have ended these programs they say their minorities rate of (not only applying but being excepted) drop 2/3.

Whites and those believe that we can all "pull ourselves up by our boot straps" think its all equal.

It isn't.....and it never will be.
