Prez Obama on federal job positions..whites need not apply..


This cultural diversity effort is getting waay out of hand.

************************************************** ***************

an editorial from the Wash.Times..

President Obama issued an executive order on Thursday titled “Establishing a Coordinated Government-wide Initiative to Promote Diversity in the Federal Workforce.

The purpose of the order is “to promote the federal workplace as a model of equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion.” In other words, it would be better for the government if public-spirited white workers sought employment some where else.

Hmmmph... the man who got to the White House promising to bring the races together, and once there, mandates racism on a national level right from the Oval Office.

Gee, who'da thunk it?



Oh, yea, I did, even before he was elected in '08.

Don't know where a link might be but I have, from personal experience, seen that "minorities" are actually over-represented in public sector jobs. In fact one of the latest gripes I've read on other forums is that the idea of cutting back Govt services will have the most impact (percentage-wise) on these minorities.

In 2009 he also signed an executive order urging federal agencies to do a better job hiring veterans.

Many non-vets weren't happy about that. Of course, veterans preference points still apply but agencies have to do a better job justifying why a qualified vet was passed over.

Shouldn't the agencies be working full time in finding ways to return their spending to 2005-8 levels, rather than adding staff to produce diversity Powerpoint studies?

Another FAIL.

If it is writing, more reverse discrimination cases will work their way to the Supreme Court and O will have blown a lot more money......

I'm fine with that as long as the veterans hireda are fully qualified for the jobs.

But you see, being a veteran isn't a "racial" issue, so I have no idea why you would bring that into this thread unless you want to pull out the typical Lib "false equivilancy" card.

Cultural diversity isn't necessarily a racial issue. Most people here seem to think it is. The article referenced didn't say "cultural" but simply "diverse."

BTW, have you seen the makeup of our armed forces lately?

Years ago when I worked for the USAF at an Aircraft Depot, we had a standing joke that a white guy working at the San-Antonio Tx facility (SA-ALC) was a minority addition to the diverse work force.

You will find no one other than you who believes that the term "Cultural Diversity" means anything but racial diversity, and racial diversity to everyone (again, probably except you) has to do with nothing but skin color defined as a racial marker.

Even you (unwittingly I imagine ) point out the "makeup" of our armed forces with the direct inference to race as defined by skin color.
So in the end, even to you, it's all about race and nothing else when the term "Cultural Diversity" is used.
