I will love it when racism is a thing of the past in America. When we do not look at each other based on race. unfortunately, that will never happen as long as people keep making race an issue by falsely playing the race card and thinking it is ok to reverse discriminate. More discrimination is not the way to end discrimination!
Like this Alderman up in Chicago. This guy, Anthony Beale, is threatening violence if a transportation project does not hire more black people. Yep, forget being color blind and equality and everyone getting hired by the same standards. This alderman wants this project to go above and beyond the federal requirements and he wants people to be hired based on nothing more than race.....
Can you imaging a white guy saying there will be violence if more white people are not hired for a project? There would be outrage! There is a double standard in America.
Beale predicts violence if Metra doesn’t hire more minorities for rail projectAn influential alderman warned Metra’s executive director on Thursday that “people are going to get hurt” if the commuter rail agency fails to bolster minority participation on a $133 million South Side railroad bridge known as the “Englewood Flyover.”
Ald. Anthony Beale (9th), chairman of the City Council’s Transportation Committee, did not explain who he believed would “get hurt” or who the perpetrators might be. But, he was clearly referring to civil disobedience or maybe even violence at the construction site.
“I’m trying to help you help yourself. When I say that, problems could arise. When you look at a community like Englewood [that] is challenged and you have over $1 billion of work coming through and there’s no people of color working on that project, I’m afraid people are going to get hurt,” Beale told Clifford during Thursday’s committee hearing.
