Yeah, it’s so fucking hard to be a white caucasian male in our society.
You black muslim handicapped lesbian females don’t know how easy you have it.
So I take it that you agree with the changes outlined in the article, then.
No, you can’t legislate racism and sexism out of society. It’s a bad solution to a bad problem, but I don’t have a better one. I’d suggest education, but I’m not sure schools can undo the damage a sexist, racist upbringing can do.
But I’m amused by the WASP crybabies who feel it is so unfair to them, as if those laws really made that much of a difference in their lives.
If a company would’ve hired me but can’t because of some government imposed quotas, it sucks; but I’ll just take the next offer, no big deal. A company that can’t figure a workaround or exploit some loophole or another (hire as a consultant or contractor, etc.) is probably not a wise career choice anyway.
Every year, I turn down unsolicited offers for work. I really doubt that I’d have to turn down that many people if I was either a woman, black, mexican or muslim or part of any other “visible/audible” minority. I’m probably lucky atheism has no outward signs.
Will you use the male white doctor or the female black doctor when one of your children is sick and why?
Plus, if minorities where discriminated against for other reasons than productivity you could make a killing hiring only minorities.
