  1. Feels like liberal tears.

    “protected characteristic

    eugenics-inspired policies”

  2. Tired of the Newspeak. Just call ii what it really is: Reverse Racism.

  3. What’s positive about denying someone who is most qualified for a job to put in an incompetent minority based on their immutable, unchosen, genetic characteristics?

    Sounds like a negative to me. Plus, racist.

  4. Renaming of a scam doesn’t make it any less of a scam.
    It’s the DEMOCRAT’S way of freshening it up a bit.

  5. Lots of BS terms:

    reasonably believes
    protected characteristic
    favorable consideration
    duty of equality
    existence of eugenics-inspired policies

    It should also state the intention that “best qualified person for a job or position should NEVER be a consideration or criteria for selection of a person for a position”.

  6. One cannot create diamonds out of mud, even with an extreme amount of pressure.

  7. There is such thing as ‘equality’ in nature …. only equality under the law.

    Yet these laws were designed for Westerners not non westerners.

  8. This country needs to be cleaned of vermin. It’s them or us. And they want us extinct.
