          Once again this year, the First Place prize in the federal quota competition goes to Court Services and Offender Services (CSOS) for employing 840% more blacks than their affirmative action "target" (quota).

          Once again this year, NASA came in dead last by exceeding its black hiring quota by a mere 44%

          Each of the remaining 20 independent agencies exceeded their racial quotas for hiring blacks in FY 2005 by a minimum of 44% (NASA) to 840% (CSOS).

          The five best independent agencies for blacks in FY 2005 turned out to be not so good for most of the other preferred racial and gender groups (Native Americans, Asian Pacific Islanders, Hispanics, and Women of all ethnicities including White).

          Just as last year, this year blacks were over hired to the greatest extent by (1st) the Court Services and Offender Services (CSOS) at 841% over their quota; (2nd) the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) at 427% over their black quota; (3rd) the Pension Benefit Benefit Corporation (PBGC) at 405% over their black quota; (4th) the Smithsonian Institution (SI) at 341% over their black quota; and (5th) the National Science Foundation (NSF) at 333% over their black quota.

          OPM's FY 2005 report reveals that among the 18 federal executive departments, only the Department of the Interior failed to achieve its racial hiring goal (quota) for hiring blacks.  Interior "under" hired blacks by -39%, i.e., they don't "look like America" because they hired 39% fewer blacks than are available in the civilian labor force.  Oh my!

          All of the other 17 federal executive departments exceeded their racial quotas for hiring blacks by a minimum of +12% (Air Force) to an impressive +334% (Housing and Urban Development).
