Not hiring criminals is discrimination.

"The Obama administration is suing Dollar General and a BMW facility in South Carolina for the alleged unfair use of criminal background checks for job applicants, months after warning companies about how such screenings can discriminate against African Americas."

Not hiring citizens that committed a crime, but have paid for them, can be discriminatory practice....

Odd, how you pretend they're any different, than anyone who has gotten a speeding ticket....

Can we hear how welfare food & booze tasted, criminal con ???

About 7 percent of the conditional offers made to non-blacks were rescinded for failing background checks, while about 10 percent of the offers made to blacks were withdrawn.So anyhow that 3% at Dollar General was due to racism? I think too many people are sue happy.

-oh and more depth on the Dollar General side

"However, the update was issued out of concern that employers might disproportionately exclude minorities from getting hired because more African Americans and Hispanics are getting arrested and going to prison, according to the guideline report."

Thereby rewarding them for becoming felons in the first place.

"While the percentage of working-age Americans with a criminal record has increased significantly over the past 20 years, African Americans and Hispanics are arrested two to three times as much compared with the rest of the U.S. population, according to a commission report at the time of the vote."

Fear not white folk. Soon enough we will be the "afflicted minority" and be able to make the same claims of discrimination.

Especially after all of the democrats and republicans in Washington grant amnesty to the 25,000,000 illegal aliens in this country. And once they do that, another 25,000,000 will follow.

Imagine how slewpid you would have to be to believe that speeding is in any way comparable with rape, assault, murder, or armed robbery.

But they will get more food stamps and help America grow (or at least or debt will).... Funny how some Republicans refer to them as taxpayers.... The republican party is a joke almost as bad as that drug liberalism

So, you don't want them to be able to get jobs, then you can criticize them for welfare ???

Why not just drop the pretense & admit you're racists.

Slew is not alone in this, Iowa believes sppeding is WORSE than pedophiles! The sad fact is the state of Iowa actually does and allows sex offenders to walk the streets and even after the recent death of a young girl (By a sex offender who went after 2 6month olds and was let back out onto the streets!) the state of Iowa is very concerned with adding speeding cameras, mobile speed units, increasing the state trooper presence, and even looking at planes to patrol the roads for speeders.... The local newspaper also runs hit pieces on a speed limits higher than 55,(because a car at 70mph just flys off the road and into your living room of course).

Not nearly as slewpid as someone who believes that G.W. Obama is any different than G.W. Bush or that all of the posters who don't agree are really all the same poster using different monikers.
