Oh My there "bagboy", being PC doesn't allow white men to win anything, this is a throw back to the Robert Byrd days of
It just allowed 17 white men to win $2.2 million dollars. Had the promoting Captain been doing his job under PC then the most qualified people
regardless of race would have been promoted with deference to ensure no special favortism for any "good ol' boys" club (as he may have been doing),
and every measure taken to ensure woman and minorities had equal
opportunity, not discriminating equal
opportunity for anyone else.
Obviously (as per the jury/judge) this didn't happen.
I have no insight though if the jury that awarded this sum to 17 white guys (15 of which still didn't make the grade after redress) were all Klan
members, but it is a thought. I'm sure though this ruling makes the Klan just as happy as you, but the fact remains redress was found based on racial
discrimination. In a very real sense political correctness.
If white men
haven't figured out yet that political corectness will save their collective white butts in the future from other "good ol'
girls clubs and hispanic clubs and brothers only work cliques" then they really need to get their heads out of 1964 and take a look at 2005.
Diversity isn't about making minorities #1 no matter who they are. I lost government research contracts for not having enough white men
payroll (couldn't get them to take the job) when representative
diversity was required as part of the program. We raised salaries for all
then, targeted white neighborhoods (both in proactive recuriting and a brand new convienent complex) and adjusted accordingly. We didn't have to do
it, but we did to "play ball."
And everybody won. That's correct political correctness.
