For the last two weeks, PJMedia has been publishing a series of articles on the radical attorneys who have been hired as career civil servants in the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division since President Obama took office. The reports reveal an unprecedented effort by Attorney General Eric Holder and his Civil Rights Division political leadership to stack the Division from top to bottom with a cadre of hard core, left-wing partisans. The ideological litmus test being employed is undeniable: conservatives and even apolitical lawyers need not apply. Only fervent liberals are welcome.

For those of you keeping score at home, 71 career attorneys have so far been highlighted in this PJM series. Every one – without exception – has emphatically clear liberal and/or Democratic ties. Think of the odds of that occurring accidentally. It didn’t. Or to put it in terms Thomas Perez can understand, it is an overwhelming disparate impact. Of course it is more than that, too. It is part of a deliberate plan to stock the Division for decades to come with left-wing ideologues who will perpetuate a liberal agenda, irrespective of who controls the levers of government in the White House.
Pajamas Media » Every Single One: The Politicized Hiring of Eric Holder

The Justice Department is concerned with "disparate treatment" as well as "disparate impact" when it comes to affirmative action. But they have no such concern in their own house. Hypocrisy is thy name.

And what evidence does the opinion piece writer have that applications will be rejected out of hand simply because the applicant is white.

None.

Title VII of the Civil Rights Act prohibits employment discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

EOs are carefully composed to ensure they comply with existing Federal legislation. EOs do not supercede Federal law.

The opinion piece writer is either ignorant of these facts or attempting to create some perceived political gain for the right. It’s telling in either case.
How about the fact - and it is a fact, that the federal government is not only already achieving it's "diversity" goals, it is surpassing them. So why exactly does the federal government need to be told to have more diversity?
What facking evidence do you have that government has far surpassed its diversity goals?
Walk in any office building on any military post in the country.

To be honest.....I think it's despicable if they've been keeping tabs on the ethnicity of employees.

If you want to even things out according to the census....I'm afraid they'll have to fire a bunch of blacks and hire a bunch of Hispanics. Blacks only make up 17% of the total population...so hiring more then that would not be true diversity and equality. Also, more women work in administrative positions and not trade positions in the government. We need to get girls into the shops and out of air-conditioned offices.

It's only fair.

I'm not complaining but the EEO office at Ft Campbell has no whites. Fancy that.

I did not say 'far surpassed', I said it had surpassed them. Less hysteria, more logic, works wonders for an individual's credibility, little man.

Look at the numbers, the federal government employs minorities at higher rates than the national average. That, little man, is surpassing it's goal. If they were 'representative', they would be the same as the make up of society - they are not, they are higher. I have no issue with that... as long as whoever is employed is the best person for the job, not the best minority candidate.

I was raised in the military starting in the late 50's,

integration started in the service long before any attempt by civilians to integrate.

End of story.

Obama is pretty despicable when it comes to wedge-issues where race is concerned.

Last week it was announced that 300,000 deportees will be allowed to remain (and qualify for food stamps) just to shore up the Hispanic vote.

This latest directive is intended to placate the Maxine Waters in Washington that are feeling ignored.

Anyone who opposes ether directive will be automatically labeled a racist.

This makes me long for the day that we can once again have a President that is willing to piss of his own party to make a non-political decision but is good for everyone.

Here's some facking evidence:

Federal Workforce Diversity: Why Agencies Seek Out Minority Workers - GovCentral.com

"African Americans make up 17.4 percent of the federal workforce, as compared to 10.1 percent of the civilian labor force"

"Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders represent 4.9 percent of federal employees and 4 percent of the civilian workforce"

"American Indians form 1.9 percent of the federal workforce but make up 0.8 percent of the civilian labor force"

"Equal opportunity does not mean equal outcomes". It's still up to the individual.

Maybe it is because of an unemployment rate among minorities that is twice as high as whites?

The order also says that “attaining a diverse, qualified workforce is one of the cornerstones of the merit-based civil service,” though merit and ability are not the metrics of choice when measuring success in diversity-driven career programs.

Mr. Obama, please contemplate the terms "merit-based" and "equality". This is why I have trouble discussing things with certain liberals. When the terms have been stripped of meaning, I cannot communicate.

This is at the lower level positions, lets get to the higher level and executive positions, what are the numbers?

I guess affirmative action and your war on poverty have been a complete failure then.
