the supreme court has ruled that affirmative action is constitutional and schools in many states use race as a factor in admissions...

it's not just for college admissions...bt often it is used as basis of decision making.

Preparation
If 10 blacks apply for the job and only 1 white applies they have to prepare to reject the white even if he's best for the job. Otherwise left wing media will nail them.

Why do you think?  It's the only way hiring managers can kowtow to the "affirmative action" quotas for minorities from the higher-ups.

Back when I was a sub-contractor on highway projects we would get a questionnaire from the feds demanding to know the racial make up of our work force.   I replied that I didn't know because it was unlawful to ask a person's race etc. on job applications, and I couldn't just guess.

The government definitely has a double standard.

The folks here who think that discrimination by governments against non minorities doesn't exist are idiots.

Lying? It was half a joke (Because that's not the real reason why), however it is a decision a company has to consider. You know if a more qualified white guy was hired over the 10 lazy black guys they'd get in trouble. If you say that's not true then you're lying.

In the aerospace and defense industries, it's blatant and pervasive.  Companies with government contracts have to report regularly on how they're meeting racial quotas.  Hiring managers are told that their "minority efforts" will be taken into account at their performance reviews - the message is crystal clear.

well that's the kinda shit that happens when you have a society that for a couple of centuries did all it could to keep certain people segregated, uneducated & later seen at best as 2nd class citizens.
