The idea is if cost and risk get too high companies will if they can shift to lower cost and risk options. If a company goes overseas to avoid the cost and risk of affirmative action, this may actually produce a more racial diverse workforce, it just wont be in America.
It is not just the litigation costs, it is also that AA groups like women and blacks are mostly incapable of human reason and so suck at a lot of the jobs they are given. Overseas companies can hire actual competent human beings.
Jimcrow is dead. Slavery is alive and well it just has a different name now and few people recognize it. And no you do not deserve reparations for something that happened to your great great great grandfather.
Far from being paid reparations, blacks should repay the rest of America for all the damage they have caused and then GTFO. Given that they were only there as pets and livestock, they should have been removed (as Lincoln wanted) when they were no longer required, not simply turned loose and allowed to wreak havoc. In any case the slaves essentially had guaranteed lifetime employment. Many people would kill for that. The idea that their descendants should be compensated because they enjoyed such a privilege is ridiculous.
Here again is that racist undercurrent that's on this web site. So you're saying this should have been a White Christian Nation from Day 1, when Jefferson and Franklin were very much against that idea?
The truth is the US pays reparations and allows immigration from countries it has destroyed with its war machine. This happen in WW1, WW2, Korean War, Vietnam War, Gulf War and the current Gulf War(s).
Its not even paid reparations to the Indians and they were here first. What asshole did you crawl out of? What's really funny is that you are likely the new school Libertarian and actually believe this stuff. Funny but William Block and other Libertarians actually agree with me and say Indians should given their land back and African-Americans should be paid reparations.
You benefits off your ancestors wealth/success, how come we can't benefit off our ancestors suffering for 300-400 years?
Winston remove this moron, while alternative thoughts are allowed here, saying Blacks should have to pay
for the Slavery caused by Anglo Saxons is blaming the victim, classically racist and he needs the boot.
