is a term deliberately manufactured by the race merchants designed to imply that racial
quota policies which deny opportunities to whites and other non-preferred groups
represents nothing more sinister than "reduced opportunity".
fact, the term "reduced opportunity" means racial discrimination against whites
and other non-favored, non-preferred racial and ethnic groups.
opportunity" is used by supporters of affirmative action (racial preferences), it
literally means the following, specific things:
- Whites and other non-minorities deserve a few,
supposedly harmless "reduced opportunities" since whites are automatically
presumed guilty of prior racist advantage.
- White-owned businesses are not allowed to bid on
billions of dollars in government contracts because those contracts have been "set
aside" for government-defined "historically disadvantaged" (minority,
mostly black) individuals. The race merchants define this blatant race-based
limitation as "reduced opportunity" for whites rather than admitting that is is
really racial discrimination.
- College admission applications submitted by white
students (as well as many Asian students) are routinely given a lower priority than
applications submitted by black students and other persons of color (given equal academic
qualifications). The collegiate race merchants call this "reduced
opportunity" for privileged white and Asian college applicants (i.e., high-performing
students), rather than admitting it is blatant racism. (The collegiate race
merchants also call this "diversity".)
- Government employees who are white are routinely
denied promotion and advancement opportunities due to enforced diversity policies
(minority hiring quotas) at government agencies. This is called "reduced
opportunity for whites" by advocates of race-based government employment policies
rather than admitting that these policies blatantly, racially discriminate against whites
and other non-protected races.
