affirmative action, time to die
This morning i had an interview with the county. i can guarantee you i will not get the job. Why? Affirmative action.
First let me say i love black people because they're human beings. Historically, what was done to blacks in America is only second to Native Americans - a horrific mistreatment of human beings. But for my entire adult life, i've had to grapple with affirmative action, being Caucasian. Why must i continually have to pay for people who were not even my ancestors? Isn't enough enough?
Both interviewers were black. The young man following me in the interview queue was black. Can you guess who will get the job?
It's way overdue for affirmative action to STOP.
Stop pushing affirmative action, stop pushing racism (by claiming damages from the past), stop being so damn divisive, stop coddling 'squeaky wheels',..
Affirmative action started when i was a child and for good reason - appropriate reasons. Blacks were segregated and mistreated as second-class citizens just because of skin color. That was patently wrong and deserved a turn-around. But 40 years have gone by to see many, if not most, public sector jobs being basically automatically handed over to black/'minority' applicants.
i don't want to talk about the actual qualifications of minorities over Caucasians and their effectiveness on-the-job. The argument above stands without such considerations. Nearly two generations have passed since affirmative action was implemented. And i'm told Caucasian has actually become a minority race in America.
America has gone way overboard trying to correct a historical error. Caucasians are paying for 'sins of forefathers' that are not even theirs. i'm basically 3rd generation Italian-American. So i'm officially Caucasian. My brother encouraged me to apply for jobs stating 'I'm black-Hispanic' and later say i made a mistake on the application. But what's the point when they can clearly see i'm not black nor Hispanic. "I can hardly speak no Spanish." So i'm officially 'whitey'. But why must i pay for whitey's sins of the past when my ancestors were not even here committing those horrific crimes?
Time to stop affirmative action. TIME TO STOP AFFIRMATIVE ACTION.
