    I'm a straight white american male and I've lost out on 2 state and 1 city job in the last year because of affirmative action.Can I sue for discrimination or unfair treatment?I doubt it,I'd probably be locked up for a civil rights violation.

    It's insanely rampant in large corporations, especially in the Defense Industry, since you're bidding/working on Govt contracts. Gotta do things the government way. My company is slowly becoming just like the fed gov. So many rules and regulations now that the mechanics can't hardly fix the planes. It used to be the job was #1, and everything else was incidental. Now following the Osha rules, corporate rules, state rules, and govt mandated procedures for defense contractors is all job #1, and actually working on the planes, is all incidental. It's insane.

    I have lost out on jobs before because they hired based on affirmative action. Most recently was 2006 when I was passed over for a management position the company had been grooming me for for about 4 years. I was the "Deputy Manager in Charge of Air Force Programs" on a military C-9 program. When my boss took a position at another facility, I was the #2 man, and was supposed to slide straight into his position. All kinds of letters of commendation/recommendation, including a letter from the outgoing manager stating that I was the best fit to be his replacement. I had also been involved with the program for over 10 years at the time, plus about 18 years with the company. Then all of a sudden they hire a black guy from OUTSIDE the company, who had never dealt with fixed wing aircraft in his life, only military helicopters. He was in no way shape or form my equal, especially when comparing resumes, but they still hired him. I was so pissed off, I couldn't see straight for a month.


    Hey Bill, how's that African Space Program working out?? LOL.

    That sounds familiar.There's nothing worse than having someone who knows less than you tell you what to do when you know he doesn't know what he's talking about.Except maybe when they tell you to do something the wrong way or when they screw up and blame you for it.

    Ha Ha Ha!! I took it up the rear too Chris!! Those Airframe Techs from Lockheed I met at AGT sure knew what was what. They had been ALL OVER the world. They had stories about the "Brothers" that would terrify Hitler or Stalin. And THEY'RE HERE NOW!!!

    The problem now is that it's so prevalent it's called a hate crime if you go against the P.C. police.

I was called all kinds of bigot for telling the truth because he was talking how hard desegration was on the poor black kids.
    Lets not forget its cool for the Blacks to promote "Black Star Power" with a big black star on every single commercial break on their own t.v. station. What about the fact that over the last 20 years the token sissy, or dork on a lot of tv shows/movies is now a white guy, and often the tough guy/cool character is black????? There's affirmative action in its finest......we've done such a good job of leveling the playing field between races huh?

    What would happen if I had a White Entertainment Television station? Bomb threats, shut down by FCC, etc. And don't say it already exists as CMT either....lol.

    A white man can't be proud of his race or heritage because its being racist. If I point out that whatever neighborhood the mexicans take over; they turn into the same disgusting ghetto they moved away from in mexico; I'm a bigot or un-sensitive to the fact they had no other choice but to live that way in mexi-hell.

    But it's cool for those other ethnicity's to wave their flag in blatent disrespect of OUR Independence Day, not try to assimilate into our country, and be bios against Americans in general.
