Blacks hardest hit. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/12/01/us/01race.html?em As usual, blacks excel at discovering discrimination. Pregnant pauses, no phone calls, suprised looks, life be tough fo' a pimp. Perhaps they should have gone to law school. Wal-mart demands affirmative action out of its contractors, at least those not employing illegal aliens cleaning their stores. http://www.law.com/jsp/cc/PubArticleCC.jsp?id=1202422926103
Or gone into government, where blacks are over represented. http://www.opm.gov/feddata/demograp/table1mw.pdf They are overrepresented in almost every government agency, except agencies, like Customs and Border Protection, that require an employee to either speak or learn a foreign language. Even then, they are nothing more than placeholders earning a do nothing check every two weeks.
But it does show two things, despite the mania for diversity, most employers want someone who will fit in and do the work. That is the last thing you get from a black employee, much less a black male employee. They are just too busy looking for pauses, suprised looks or no returned phone call. With such attention for detail, you would think they could be great scientists, engineers, or interrorgators.
