Lately, I have been hearing about local officials reciting their good deeds of hiring more minorities.
I know I'll be criticized by at least 30% of the population but I owned my business for 28 years and it never occurred to me that I was expected to hire a minority quota. I remember hiring what I thought were the best people qualified for the position and firing those who didn't live up to their promise or encouraging some to perhaps seek another line of work.
Where did I go wrong? I know, if I live another 20 years, my race would allow me to expect to be hired to help the government and some of the private sector and colleges (Think University of Michigan) to meet minorities quota's of 2030.
I know I went wrong because mine is the only office equipment dealer in Peoria that still bears the founders name. Mine.
