Affirmative action is racist. When I was in my 20's I got a well earned promotion. The corp had a temp doing my old job. The temp who was in her 50's, doing a great job, well qualified based on experience and on the job performance was denied the perm position because she was not a minority.
Quote from big boss who got the hell out said "HR says your job will only be filled by a monority"
Minority who got the job was an illegal who got amnesty in the early 90's. This took place in the early 90's
Add insult I was forced to train this person to do the job.
This crap all tied back to gov't contracts.
