    The White House issued an executive order on Thursday titled “Establishing a Coordinated Government-wide Initiative to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Federal Workforce.” The purpose of the order is “to promote the federal workplace as a model of equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion.” In other words, it would be better for the government if public-spirited white workers sought employment elsewhere. Lost amid all the politically correct box-checking is the principle that the most qualified person should be hired for a job.

    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.

    America derives it strength from having the best fill the position. I think we tried quotas before, hire a certain amount of white vs. blacks vs. American Indian vs. Latino's.

    It really didn't work yet we go back to the failed policy.

    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?

    About 40 years of history with liberals running the government is the evidence.

    Considering the objectives of government now days

    id say having them hire less qualified people is a great idea.

    This is just quotas being instituted in the federal government.

    Eventually you'll get 5 or 10 points for being non-white. I can see it coming. Obama already has centralized hiring in the DOD, so applying this will be easy.

    The program's heart may seem in the right place but it's actual application is unfair. Certain racial groups will receive special consideration over others. The strange thing is the federal government already is diverse. This is just patronizing to his black voters and seems to be in response to Maxine Water's threats over the last week.
