Besides things where it's a requirement, like a stripper has to be female. I'm talking about total abuses of affirmative action or white guilt. Does the person know it and/or flaunt it? I have a coworker that is a female, black, hispanic. My boss has tried to fire her, only to be told by HIS bosses that he can't because she's a female black hispanic. She pretty much knows she's written her own ticket and doesn't do shit around here. I'm not sure how she'd react when/if I finally lose it and call her on it. What's ironic in this case is that she really could milk this to get ahead, but she's already made it pretty clear that she just wants to stay doing what she's doing. No drive to get promoted whatsoever.

Not currently, but at my last company there was a black woman who couldn't add a simple list of figures who nonetheless had been promoted to the level of Group Leader over 20 years of employment, simply because no one wanted to deal with firing a black female. When the company closed the plant down, guess whose enjoyable job it became to determine who would go first, and guess who had to prepare a package for her that would prevent the stupid bitch from suing? I'll tell you this: She couldn't count as hoigh as the check she got. BTW, I AM NOT EXAGERATING ONE IOTA. The bitch was as dumb as Georgia sandstone....

I am currently "abusing" the "system". How? Those who know me are well aware I am Saxon-likie Middle European male. So How is this again? The agency I work for (or through) is a minority-owned business and just because of that, I am selected above contractors represented by non-minority owned firms. Its called a loophole. Get over it. Its a natural response to a dumb law.

When I worked for Broward County, FL there was this grossly overweight black woman who didn't do shit. She injured her back, a minor injury, and then didn't come to work again for 6 months. She had her phone changed so none of the bosses could get a hold of her. The doctors notes said she was fine like 4 months before that. She basically went 4 months, in good health, without contacting her employer, and still had a job when she came back. Hands down, it was because she was black.

This sounds kind of bizarre, but I have an acquaintence who works as a black washroom attendant in the men's restroom at a nightclub in downtown San Diego. The first time I went in there to take a leak it made me REAL uncomfortable because the last time I had seen a black washroom attendant was at a train station in Kansas City in about 1961. I was three years old and it scared the bejeezus out of me. The guy in the San Diego club makes beaucoup bucks on tips, probably because of latent white guilt. He sqirts soap on your hands, then hands you a clean paper towel when you're done washing up. I think his REAL purpose is security. Nobody ever trashes that restroom. [peep]

I know a few, but more interestingly, I know a guy that has kept his job because he's so overweight. That's right, because he's so fat, his boss is afraid to fire him. He works at the counter at the post office, and he can't physically do the job. He can barely reach the terminal to type, and he can't reach across the counter to pickup packages or take money. The postmaster there said he's wanted to fire the guy for years, but since he's over 400#, the post office is afraid of a lawsuit since they've lost "weight discrimination" ones before. Instead the customers have to suffer with a rude and lazy idiot. It's ridiculous when you go to pick-up your mail, and you're told to come back later since the guy at the counter can't reach down to get it out of a box. The guy also eats while working. I've seen him get ketchup and grease all over letters and cash. If the average postal worker used profanity, damaged mail, and didn't work, they would have been long gone. Instead, this guy still gets paid.z

I know of a few women who really should be fired, but haven't been. I can't say for sure, but I'm pretty sure that at least one of them hasn't been fired because she is a woman over the age of 45. I do have a story that goes the other way though. The last time I was unemployed, my roommate was in the same position. He has a very American name, and I have a Middle Eastern name. We both had the exact same jobs in IT (this was in 1998). We both sent about 30 resumes out, pretty much to the same companies and at the same time. Care to guess what the results were? He got around 25 responses, and I got 3. He ended up getting a job, while it tooks me a few more months. But it gets better. A friend of mine worked for a contracting/consulting company and had a pretty good working relationship with the head recruiter. He calls me and tells me to send this guy my resume, and that I'd get a call back in a day or two. Four days later, my friend calls to see what the result was. I told him that nobody called me, so he hung up with me and called the recruiter to see what was going on. The recruiter threw my resume away because he didn't want to deal with a "foreigner" or "someone who couldn't communicate well", etc. My friend told him to call me into an interview and make the decision after that. He agreed, and I interviewed, at which time he learned that I was born and raised in VA but am of Middle Eastern descent. He had an unusual name and olive skin, so I asked him where he was from. Now keep in mind, that he is the one who trshed my resume. He was Lebanese. I wanted to tell them to f**k off and walk right out the door. But then I thought about it. I can't help how I was born, or what my heritage is. And I'm sure as hell not going to change my name. If that means I have to work a little harder, then so be it. There's no sense whining about it (although I did get pretty pissed). Some people have much greater adversity to overcome than me. I figured I'd be better off busting my tail and showing them their potential mistake. I ended up getting hired by the company they placed me in and am still here two promotions later. This worked better for me than sitting around unemployed and bitching about "the man". Sorry for the rant.

This guy would be easy to get rid of if he worked for me. It would take 6 months of paperwork to do it, but none of it would hae anything (directly) to do with his weight.

I've started checking "Hispanic" on all my apps, and it's made all the difference. I was accepted into a Federal program that has a 15/1 application to acceptance ratio- I was accepted into other places where I otherwise had a hard time getting admitted into... It's made all the difference, and I am not being sarcastic, or a smart ass here. I am dead serious. I am now officially "Hispanic" in the eyes of Uncle Sam.

Whaaaa! I hear someone crying. Could it be Ann Richards, former uber-liberal Governor of this state who was instrumental in getting this stupid law passed? She did more to harm this state than any other governor despite the political figurehead this position normally is. Like the "tax" on lead-acid storage batteries. This tax did NOTHING to promote recycling and a saavy retailer of these batteries suggested I send my old ones to the Governor's mansion for disposal. Another of her brainchilds was the lottery. It started out as a pick 6 out of 50 with odds of one in 15,890,700. Now its pick 5 out of 44 plus bonus of one out of 44 for a combined odds of one in 47,784,352. Nice move and they wonder why its going downhill. Why do I illustrate the former Governor? Because that cvnt got her job based on her gender. I hope she has gone back to drinking.

I just got laid off from an entity that prides itself on diversity...48% minority...in one section which has 30 or so employees, there is 1 male...and he's arguably Hispanic. I'm all for diversity, but 4 times the norm? You guys do the math! I worked there for a year and a half...and I can tell you, everything you've heard about the government PALES in comparison to the truth. This agency is full of people who only have their job to fill the head cheese's idea of a utopian society...qualifications and competence have NOTHING to do with it. People are promoted sooner or later just because they've been there long enough, and to not promote them would cause a stink because they're female, black, or both. Now, let me say the hardest working man in this organization is a black man...and he says the same thing! I could tell you dozens of stories about this place, but ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, the BBC, The Washington Post, the Washington Times, and the Wall Street Journal have all beaten me to it over the last month or so hehehe.

Yes, I saw someone get a job that they were not really qualified for based on race/gender. The company I work for is "commited to empowering a diverse workforce". In the meeting to decide if we should hire her, the directior of our division said "we don't see applicants liek her very often. We have to hire her." The procedded to go out of their way to get her to accept. As a side note, this person bacme a very good friend. I just think that it demeaned both our group and her by giving her the offer based on race and not qualifications.

I got hired because I put on my app that I was a gay, black female, Jewish, native american disabled war vet. The reason they still employ me is because they've seen a pic of the SEC and they're afraid of getting sued.

Yes, I was wrong for taking a contract job being offered by a minority owned consulting company. That is why I tendered my 2-week's notice. Unfortunately, I cannot go on unemployment so please donate for my survival. Its wrong to work with a corrupt system and its uber wrong to try to work around a corrupt system. If I cannot find work, I will move to Montana, build me a 10' square cabin and start my mail order business. And if you didn't see it, there is a shipload of sarcasm above.

After graduating college with a 3.75 gpa, I applied for the DPS. The recruiter told me that everything looked good but I would not be able to get hired on during that rotation because they were going to hire as close to 100% minorities as possible. I told the recruiter that was the biggest bunch of BULLSHIT I had ever heard of. And asked him how they justified such actions. "What if you got in a car wreck on the way home, and the paramedic was a retarted dumb ass who got his job, not on merits, but by color. You would not be getting the best possible care" He acted like he could not see my point. I never went back. Went elsewhere to places with less RACIST HIRING PRACTICES. MY parents were not SLAVE owners, They were POOR cotton farmers themselves. This Really hits a nerve with me.

I was being recruited by a BIG accounting firm last year along with 4 other students in my class. They told us that they had 3 openings and wanted to fill them with grads from our class. Out of the five of us there were 3 females & 2 males. The females got all of the offers. Me and this other guy were passed over at the last red hot second because we were not in possession of indoor plumbing (translation-we can't hire you because you have penises, it would upset corporate diversity blueprints, um kay!). I had this confirmed to me by 2 of the females that were hired, a manager who was an alumnist, and also by someone a few classes ahead of us who worked in this office. F'ing BS!

Don't get confused. I'm not bitching because you're taking some deserving black person's job. I'm bitching because the company you work for is taking some hard working person's job. I hate affirmative action, and actually think that it's more racist that the biggest klan meeting ever. The idea that blacks CAN'T get ahead without help is pathetic. The sad thing is that until they are forced to get ahead based purely on merits they will always need the affirmative action. From a racist point of view, affirmative action ain't all that bad, since they will never get above whatever quota they fill as long as the quota exists.

Law firm I used to be at hired a stone stupid black guy because our racial diversity was zero before that. He was so dumb...I can't even think what the clients thought who got stuck with him.

He is still there, still working hard, still (I hear 5th hand) screwing up everything.

I work for the USPS. If only the rest of the world understood the level of incompetence... Yeah, I know you other civil servants see it also but damn, the USPS is like the ATFE of civil service. Can't read? become a mail carrier. Have a drinking or drug problem? Become a janitor. Have serious personality problems? become a supervisor. My opinion of it all is that the USPS fills the quota for a very large chunk of the federal goverment and as such we get the real winners.
