I have a friend who managed a hotel. Out of the 8 people she hired, 7 were African American.

So, when employees screw up, as they often times do, she fired them.

She was visited by some minority rights groups and questioned about her firing of African Americans..Even though she almost solely hired African Americans, firing them was enough to put her in hot water.

I feel all of these "victims rights groups" actually hurt African Americans more than they help.. Once an African american is hired, companies must walk on eggshells to make sure they will not face some huge lawsuit for perceived discrimination. What company wants to deal with that?
