Federal government demands affirmative action for minority felons


Say hello to your new co-workers.

The unconstitutional Soviet-inspired EEOC issued a threat to companies not to reject minority applicants who have a felony.

The new guidelines essentially make minority felons a protected class.  No wonder companies are fleeing the United States.

For years the EEOC has been tightening the vice on US employers. One of their most notorious acts was suing Polo Ralph Lauren and Abercrombie & Fitch for having too few non-white models. Now these companies and others fill their ads with gratuitous amounts interracial couples out of fear of being sued.

Employers could be pressured to hire more workers with a criminal background under recent guidelines issued by the federal government.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s guidelines warn businesses about rejecting minority applicants who have committed a crime and recommend they eliminate policies that “exclude people from employment based on a criminal record.”

The EEOC says civil rights laws already prohibit different treatment for job applicants who are of a different ethnic background but have identical criminal histories. The update was issued out of concern that employers might disproportionally exclude minorities from getting hired because more African Americans and Hispanics are getting arrested and going to prison, according to the guideline report.

But businesses and even one EEOC commissioner strongly objected to the changes, saying they are confusing and go beyond the commission’s authority.

“The only real impact the new guidance will have will be to scare business owners from ever conducting criminal background checks,” said Commissioner Constance Barker, who cast the lone nay vote and was one two George W. Bush appointees on the Democrat-controlled commission at the time. Agency commissioners approved the report in a 4-1 vote in April 2012.
