I've worked for a lot of employers who were racist and it showed in how they hired. Racism is still very real and oppressive out here. I don't think affirmative action is the answer though because I think the most qualified person should get the job period and the laws prevent that.

Ever worked with an incompetent white guy that made you wonder how did that imbecile ever get in that position? Do you think it was because he was the' best and brightest'(I'll touch that racial charged term at a later time) or because of who he looks like and commonality with the majority employees? Be honest!

There is still blatant racism in America as seen in the case of woman who named her son "messiah", who is African American, and was ordered by a white bigoted Christian fundamentalist judge to change it. I could imagine that happening to a Kardashian, Lady GaGa, or Brittany Spears. Affirmative Action is still necessary because Black people's rights are still being abridged with A.A. in place and the Civil Rights Act. I could imagine how bigoted whites with authority would act towards Blacks if there were no legal recourse in place to rectify racist treatment and shunning of Black people and their human dignity and respect.

Everything in life is not predicated on a test! I worked for a guy years ago who was test savvy but had no clue what to do when his ass was given a task to complete. I admit he could out 'test' me, if I didn't prepare, but in actually doing the job he was not as knowledgeable with hands on. So when you say that a test should be the final determining factor in getting a position, you totally are clueless in the various ways that individuals learn and retain the knowledge. You are a result of the modern 'egg headed' learning method, that falsely equates test taking with job performance. You're what's wrong with the educational system in America.
Blacks who are 'assisted' with the help of A.A. knows that it only helps to get one in the door, not cover them for incompetence. I don't care how good a grade a white guy scored on his medical exam, if the guy can't perform a surgery with steady hands and competence, I don't want him in my operating room.
You have become rather boring, like Obama. People are sick and tired of this garbage. Isn't it time people accept responsibility for their choices and actions and stop blaming others? You guys have worn it out!

Even though you are a typical democrat, I still wish you Happy Holidays and success in life!

You are so FOS! Afraid due to how dark they are? Lighter skin are more accepted? I swear you lack basic education and have points of view that are absurd. If you are white, I am ashamed. If you are black you do your race no honor.

The war on poverty has destroyed the black family more than any color of skin.

Reading anything you post I wonder did you get to middle school before dropping out?

Always the victim. Never a leader and always blaming others. I can see why you rely on AA to solve your problems. With AA and the Democratic party representing your interests your race will be in the same spot 50 years from now.

Oblamo is black in color only. He has bought into the white man's way. He is the ultimate Uncle Tom!

Why isn't AA in professional sports and entertainment? Blacks dominate both of these where it is based on talent and not by statute. Further reason AA is there to keep the black race dependent on a party that takes their vote for granted.

yep. All superiors, but only at corporations. But the kind of work I do might be a little different than what you're used to.

Affirmative Action includes preferential hiring for corporate and government jobs, set aside contracts, and lowered admission standards in colleges and universities for diversity people.

AA privileges are targeted to benefit women and african-american victim cult people. Military veterans get some AA too, as veterans are considered special disabled people by the fedgov.

Hispanics and latinos are a increasing recipient of AA privilege too, and the competion for AA privileges has raised the ire of some black people.

Most corporations and all government departments give mandatory diversity training to employees called diversity awareness. The general idea they convey is to get oppressor class people conditioned to accept being passed over by diversity cronyism.

Whites did not put blacks into slavery. Im sick of this lie. Whites ( approx. 1%) owned slaves. Slaves that were bought from blacks in africa. Enslaved by blacks in africa. The first black to be made a slave who was not a slave already was made a slave by anthony johnson ( a black man ). Creating the first american slave. For the next six years only blacks could own blacks. 40% of free blacks owned slaves in louisiana, and the carolinas.

Check out Columbus Ohio every day for a year and then tell me whites commit more crime than blacks. Even with a black mayor that has redone the city for the blacks they still kill each other on a daily basis, sell drugs,use drugs and belong in gangs. Most of the larger citys have the same problem and it is not because they do not have the same chances as the poor whites. The fathers are missing from the homes because they are having kids with multiple teenage girls who struggle to raise them by themselves. Go to Columbus and get involved and you will see for your self what the truth really is. There is no family unit to break up. Those that are married with children and do commit crime know that if they are caught what will happen. So you are saying we should not send criminals to jail for crimes committed because it breaks up a family unit seems to be the wrong message to be sending to the children. Too many blacks have a very sucessful life for you to still be playing the black card. Try telling the young ones to stay in school, don't join gangs, don't do drugs, don't have kids while you are still a kid, graduate and see how much farther in life you will go.

Chattel slavery has been gone for 150+ years.

No black people alive have ever experienced chattel slavery.

What these people complain about is being discriminated against not because they are descendents of slaves, but because they feel discriminated against because of the color of their skin. Skin color is superficial, and nobody rational uses it as a basis for prejudging people. The real reason they experience discrimination is rampant base criminality of african-americans, and their denial of responsibility for stopping the behavior and mentality earlier in their community. Relying on the police as the crime control mechnism is self-defeating, and indicates a common lack of morality and impulse control. The government they elect feeds their irresponsibility by cultivating an entitlement mentality in blacks, further eroding their credibility as decent citizens.

It may be a good thing to give blacks the same thing the government gave native american tribes, an autonomous reservation. In all likelihood a reservation would devolve into a typical state in Africa, but at least it gives them an alternative of self-government to what they got now. It makes more sense then sending billions of dollars in taxpayer foreign aid and blood every year to the middle east to support a warmongering corruption.

Common Sense - " Too many blacks have a very sucessful life for you to still be playing the black card.

Black people do care about Black people.

WOW! Yeah, treat them like the Native Americans. They have been damn near wiped out. Was that really the best you could come up with.

You have a serious reading comprehension problem.

All Native Americans retain full US citizenship, retard.

All Indian tribes also get a reservation estate where their tribe has sovereignty, exactly the option some blacks desire too.

The Native Americans were obviously not wiped out, because there are hundreds of indian reservations distributed inside the US and Canada.

African-americans were never wiped out either, as they are now at least 13% of the US population.

Dummies like you want to continue national AA policies, because you are corrupt like your diversity leaders.

Your hysteria is noted for future reference.
