Brian Lilley: Feds discriminate – need to fix hiring based on race, sex

Imagine for a moment there was a company that had a policy of only allowing men to fill certain jobs or set aside other jobs for whites only. Now imagine that this company not only had this as policy but put it in writing and then advertised it.

Any company that did this would be hammered in the media and denounced on all sides for discriminatory hiring practices.

Yet if this is so wrong for the private sector, why is the federal government doing it?

Of course with the feds they don`t have any jobs set aside for men, just women, and there are no jobs just for white people, but white people are barred from applying for certain jobs. Why is this allowed?
