Posted on 02/17/2011 5:37:48 PM PST by Niuhuru
Members of an African American Student Union were left open-mouthed and outraged after a white, freshman was hired for a top job within the group.
Torey McCleskey, a first year student at University of North Florida, was handed the coveted assistant director role, after a unanimous decision from the institution's Senate.
However AASU members argue that Mr McCleskey, an athletic training and sports medicine student, has never actually set foot in the AASU's office.

spoiled? racist more like it
Think of it as affirmative action.
The Africans have a point. They won’t be able to perform to the best of their ability unless they are under the direction of someone OF THEIR OWN KIND.
Same for the White Student Union. Fair is fair. What? There isn’t any White Student Union.
Bwahahahahaha...that forced diversity thing can cut both ways.
Better qualified? Christa Merix was up for the job along with one other. The AASU argue that both were much more qualified for the position than Mr McCleskeyGet with the program, people. It's not about "qualifications"... it's about "inclusion".
Well, sorta. The qualification they are referring to is 'level of melanin'. It's all about race.

And those students would not disagree...
I had a person send a resume with “African Student Union” member listed as an activity. It told me a lot about them; I picked someone with more experience (also black) who listed what they could do instead. The former was apparently angling for a token diversity seat-warming job; the limited skills in no way matched even the field we work in.
By their rules of giv me; giv me and giv me; this is only fair.
Yes, I do. Every bit of it.
I sometimes think that a fully collapsed economy would be a good thing, since these spoiled brats would have to worry about more important things than this.
How about this:
Blacks will run things that they pay for and companies they build, while whites run things that they pay for and companies they build. Same with countries. If whites pay more, they run it. If blacks pay more, blacks run it.
Yes, two can play that game!
One good thing about Obama, he showed that affirmative action is a failure and he made the race card worthless.
“They wont be able to perform to the best of their ability unless they are under the direction of someone OF THEIR OWN KIND.”
The soft bigotry of lowered expectations. Someday they’ll learn, grow up, and people will take them seriously.
To have ANY organization on the campus of a publicly funded school where your primary entrance qualification is the color of your skin should be unlawful.
As far as they are concerned, it is fully collapsed; their unemployment is worse, and will be the slowest to recover. The housing collapse left their neighborhoods even more dysfunctional. They can either grow up or fade into insignificance, replaced by our southern cousins in the workforce, our cities, our government, and even our prisons.
As someone noted about 9/11: They flew machines their culture could never invent into buildings their culture could never construct.
Which is why for hte life of me, that they aren’t worrying about that, running like MAD to school to get more credentials, and protesting the government about it rather than someone white getting hired for a job someone else wanted.
They think there is an alternative: don’t learn any skills, party it up, and somebody will give you a low-skill job at high-skill pay for being black. I often think they themselves are unaware of how far they’ve fallen behind educationally, with all of the curving & outright cheating by teachers to give false grades, right on into college where professors who grade honestly are deemed “racist” (causing other professors to take note and give “F-” students low “Cs”. Years ago I was at a job where a senior financial person retired; a young (black) file clerk, after someone else was hired for the position, said he had thought about applying for it. His skills (or lack of them) were SO out of synch with the requirements for the job it was like talking to a crazy person; never mind the math,finance or technology angles - his command of the English language was so poor it was bizarre. Nobody had been honest with this young man in years, and they did him no favors. He was eventually let go, and to his very last day there was convinced the older, more educated, experienced, and capable person hired for that job was only hired because they were white.
“: dont learn any skills, party it up, and somebody will give you a low-skill job at high-skill pay for being black. “
In the ‘new economy,’ it’s not oging to happen anymore. At some point you’re going to have to have the skills and then knuckel down. If a company locates their headquarters in China, they will be able to avoid the social engineering policies of the US and won’t have to hire these idiots. They’ll be able to bypass it and at some point, companies are going to start shedding these fools, no matter how much they protest.
You’re probably right; but protests aren’t why companies (and towns) keep the tokens on board - it is because of lawsuits. If they don’t have enough tokens, they’re obviously discriminating; if they didn’t have any tokens apply, then they’re obviously not having enough of an outreach. At my company they make sure they have enough overpaid useless tokens (white women in our particular case) to fight off any lawsuits. We have some brilliant women who are a pleasure to work with who really know their stuff; we also have a number of them where there could be no other reason for them to be paid or promoted to where they are (and it isn’t the age-old way such people would advance - they’re beastly).
Which is why more companies aren’t setting jobs up here in the US and the ones who came here originally, are moving overseas.
I can certainly understand why the companies are setting up elsewhere or leaving our shores; I don’t understand what people think is going to happen as this continues.
