Is this for the USA or the world? The white race is the majority in the USA might have something to do with it.

It's for the US, and those are RATES per 100,000 people.

- Your SAT score is effectively "discounted" by 200 points when you apply for admissions to a university.

- Your qualification test is "discounted" by 50 points when you apply for a policeman or fireman's job, or promotion in the military.

- Your application is "discounted" when you apply for a government contract or broadcast license.

- Your resume is "discounted" when you apply for a corporate job.

- Many more "discounts".


I never experienced any of those.  Or if I did, I was not aware of it and, reflecting on a life that has more in the rear view mirror than it does in front, I feel blessed.

To be sure, there have been some examples of "affirmative action" that appeared to be a tad over the top.  But I don't know of anyone who suffered from any of those "discounts," real or imagined, who would trade places with the one who was favored.

Did you ever attend a university?  Did you ever apply for a government job?  Did you ever work for a corporation, especially one that does a lot of business with the government, like aerospace?  If you did, you'd get it shoved in your face from practically the day you walked in the door, if you DID get in the door in spite of your white skin.  And the old "it didn't happen to me so it doesn't happen" is the worst of idiocies.

Yes.

I am sure it's not true in YOUR case, but I do know of cases where certain parties couldn't cut the mustard and laid it off to being victims of affirmative action.

There is another standard line.  Minorities and libs fight all the time, for decades, for "affirmative action", but then pretend it doesn't have any effects, or doesn't even exist.

Oh, I know it exists.  And I know there are occasional real victims of it.  But I also know that losers frequently claim to be victims of it when really they're just losers.

Yeah, I guess like Barbara Grutter.  Had the door slammed in her face for being white at the University of Michigan, even though she was more qualified than blacks they let in.  But you know what?  She was just an anomaly.  One day the admissions committee met, and someone said "Hey, we nevvvvverrrrr do this, but just for fun, let's f__K over a white applicant."

Riiiiiiiiiiiiiightttttttttttttttttttt

Another strawman.  You have a sack full of 'em!

If you've been passed over for jobs and promotions, it might have as much to do with your personality as your skin color.  You come across as a very bitter person.

Strawman?   What are you talking about?

Looks like you've run out of facts and arguments (actually, you haven't presented any) so you resort to a personal attack.  Stop cluttering the thread - leave it clear for people who want to DEBATE.
