When are they going to do away with the word 'minority' and all that they're entitled to?
Here are a couple of entitlement groups that are being shown favoritism and it should end.
1. Female owned businesses getting bid preference.
I think this needs to end. I used to work for a company that made bids on government contracts. The owner was a man, but he had the business in his
wife's name so they could get the best contracts. It would be different if his wife came into the office and did work or attended meetings, but I
never once even met her. She never once came into the office. In fact, she lived in New York, while the business was in Virginia.
Besides, let's face it. Women have come a long way and can hardly be considered a minority.
2. Let's stop considering African Americans minorities.
We have a black (who's also white) president for goodness sakes! This goes to prove that anyone of this race can accomplish anything they want as long
as they apply themselves and know the right people. Besides, their numbers are too many to be considered to be anywhere near the definition of a
Hispanics should also not be considered minorities.
Honestly, the true minorities are American Indians and albinos.
I also believe that businesses who employ the disabled should get a break, I've been to a couple bakeries that employ only disabled individuals. These
people are doing a great service for these unfortuneate people and should be given a break by our government through loan forgiveness and less taxes.
In regards to the military, they need to start spending more money and attention to our returning vets who need help readjusting to civilian life and
probably need counseling services, which our government is not providing and should be. Shame on them for not standing up and helping these men and
women are trying to overcome the pains of war.
