Equal opportunity is not preference. Equal opportunity means race, color, religion or national origin will not detemine an applicant to be qualified or unqualified. Equal opportunity says skin color can no longer be an automatic job rejection or an automatic hire. Equal opportunity assures the same hiring critria will apply to all applicants. Equal opportunity assures pay levels will be based on the job duties. Equal opportunity assures all Americans jobs will not
Bee's opinion! Equal opportunity has not arrived for all America. For centuries, America's rich, free White males purposely excluded all others groups. As time passed, other groups were provided some opportunity at the will and wave of the wand of America's rich, free White males. The wand of opportunity for Black Americans has been slow and next to none in its wave.
When America use laziness as cause for Blacks in poverty, America shows lack of knowledge of America's history. The rich free White male purchased Africans for economic reasons. The Slave industry was founded or should I say the slave industry was born, and the workers were chattel. Blacks were bought and sold to work, breeded like cattle to work, beat to submit and work more, and killed at the wave of the wand with no protection under the US laws.
Employment Opportunity for Blacks was solely at the will of the rich White male until the early 1960's. Even today poverty stats suspiciously reeks of racial discrimination. Highest rates of poverty in 2012 US, 35% Black; 34% Hispanic; 12% Asian, 9% White; A lot of poverty is contributed to slave wages.
2010 census data show racial demographics for US is 64% White; 16% Hispanic; 12% Black; 5% Asian; 1% American Indian and Alaska Native 2% two or more races. When I hear equal opportunity is racial entitlement, I can only think the speaker feels the rich free White male had the right idea when Black males were 3/4 human and Black women and children were disposable flesh.

Did God create man and woman to be equal? What does our reality clearly teaches us? Is there any absolute, if not, how do we count for men not having the anatomy to carry and produce offspring. Or how do we count for women not having semen to inseminate and conceived offspring? Come with me and lets reason this...

Equal Pay Day 2013: Women Still Making Fraction What Men Make
Today is Equal Pay Day, the day in which advocates say women must work until to make the same amount as men made last year. Nearly 50 years after the passing of the Equal Pay Act of 1963, full-time year-round female employees make only as much as 80 percent of what their male counterparts make. Those analyzing this look at various factors such as occupational preferences and differences in the degree that men and women differ in family activities, but many studies still point to discrimination as being at least one factor. We talk to Fatima Goss Graves, Vice President for Education and Employment at the National Women's Law Center in Washington, DC.
FEC Vacancies Mean Lack of Electoral Law Enforcement
Beset by a long-term vacancy and ridden with deadlock, the Federal Elections Commission has become seen as mostly dysfunctional, unable to carry out its task of enforcing rules regarding elections and electoral finance. A recent column in Roll Call referred to the FEC as a lame-duck, a reference to the fact that the terms for every remaining member are about to expire, and it goes on to point out a growing backlog of work and even the ability to even determine when violations occur. We speak to the author of that column, Eliza Newlin Carney who is also a staff writer for CQ Roll Call covering lobbying and influence.
The purpose of an Equal Parenting Law is to bring a balance in custody issues by re-defining the basis of, "... in the best interest of the child.," This re-definition can be achieved through the parameters of this simple three step framework: 1.)

Equal accountability of both parents to the rule of the court and the ability of either parent to be judged ,&q
