Any company posting a racial preference like this is just asking for it.

So wrong, but not quite what it seems.

The company has Indian-American owners and they employ 60% minorities. They claim they were trying to diversify their work pool.

Yeah, and Roseanne was trying to be funny with her Planet of the Apes comment.. It Doesn't matter. And, honestly, nor SHOULD it matter.. Posting a job with either Caucasian or minority preferred just doesn't fly. Best candidate gets the job, regardless of anything else.


And yes, please excuse me as I drift away on clouds here in my dream world.

You're right. The best candidate should always get the job. Discrimination should not be tolerated.

The federal government has all sorts of programs for special interest groups such as women, veterans, minorities, etc. A bonus is if one is a woman minority veteran! Basically a self writing check for government dollars.

I know this because my father specializes in finding them business and writing up contract proposals.

Programs that had good intentions are being severely abused at taxpayer expense.

Wow. I hope that company goes under for racist hiring practices. You should always hire the best candidate regardless of race, religion, etc.

If that were only true. The best candidate almost never gets the job. People who are buddy with a manager, good at wowing the bimbos in HR and dealing with their fake science, just plain liked by the manager get the job. If the best person actually got the job productivity and GDP would be substantially higher. However from top to bottom we have a dysfunctional crony capitalist economy.

Diversity/More Minorities in 2019 speak usually means more women. They and specifically white women have reaped the benefits of Affirmative Action and diversity initiatives.
