I have friends from many different ethnic, educational, and geographic backgrounds. I have traveled to about 25 different foreign countries. I have lived in eight different States. I have experienced a lot of different cultures and places.
I still do not understand why we have quotas for Government jobs, why we have programs that solely support one ethnic group, and I do not understand why almost every Business class I attend at IPFW has a Professor that tells us that "The most important thing a business must do to be successful is to be diverse." Huh?
I believe that every employer should hire the most qualified person to do the job. I do not care if the person to be hired is a military veteran, pregnant, white, black, American Indian, gay, blue with purple spots, a Vulcan, or a member of any other group. It absolutely offends me that we have a system where you have to hire a certain number of people from certain ethnic groups. This practice as wrong and in my opinion is anti-American.
I know first hand of several government agencies that have been severely damaged by hiring due to ethnic requirements rather then based on qualifications. I think these quotas should offend members of every minority.
I have always considered starting the White American Male College Fund. I figure that if I do it I will be sued by someone and called a racist. What do you think?
