    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.

    'Give us stuff or we'll roll over you!!!!'

    A person's skin color never should be a consideration for hiring.

    What does he think this is, 1964????

    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.

    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.
