|[July 23, 2007 -- Washington,
DC] Today Adversity.Net released its seventh annual analysis and critique of federal
overhiring of selected races in the name of "affirmative action".
The government's official statistics show a pattern of "un-hiring" and
"retiring" white males and other non-preferred groups while overhiring blacks
and other preferred groups by dozens or hundreds of percent above their proportion in the
civilian work force. It is alright for the feds to violate the AA creed of
"proportional representation" as long as the disproportion favors certain races.
This graphic shows the dramatic downward trend in federal hiring of non-preferred groups
(white males and others) from 2000 to the present.
This graphic shows the dramatic upward trend in federal hiring of preferred minorities
from 2000 to the present.
Adversity.Net's analysis is based on the U.S. Office of Personnel Management's annual
report "Federal Equal Opportunity Recruitment Program".
This year's OPM report -- covering federal Fiscal Year 2006 -- among other things boasts
that the feds hired 6,912 new minorities last year while at the same time
"dis-hiring" or "retiring" 6,280 white males and other non-preferred
As always, the OPM report is confounding in two regards. First, the OPM defines
"women" as minorities which category includes women of all races including
"white". Second, the OPM continues to refuse to publish any data
whatsoever regarding employment of white males, and studiously avoids presenting data
which depicts the decrease in employment of white males and other non-preferred groups.
additional FY 2006 Racial Mania:
From FY 2001 through FY 2006 a net total of 48,033 new minority employees have been hired by the feds. During the same
period there has been a net
decrease of 3,960 white male employees in federal jobs. See table and graphic, below:

FY 2004 represents an artificial "spike" in the data. In 2004 the
U.S. OPM added 168,616 job classifications to their annual EEO tally, causing a one-time
distortion in data for that year. Also in 2004 OPM began using 2000 census data as
the basis for its underrepresentation computations whereas in prior years they used 1990
The feds exceed their hiring quotas for blacks in all 23 independent federal
In fact, in the top three independent federal agencies for black quota hires, the other
preferred groups did not do so well.
(Court Services and Offender Supervision Agency) overhired blacks by 808% over their proportion in the civilian labor
Gov't Printing Office) overhired blacks
by 503% over their proportion in the civilian labor force.
PBGC (the Pension Benefit
Guaranty Corporation) overhired blacks
by 409% over their proportion in the civilian labor force.
Almost all the other preferred race / gender groups in these three agencies were hired at
rates at or below their proportion in the civilian labor force.
Similarly, in 17 of the 18 federal executive departments, blacks were overhired by 14% to
363% over their proportion in the civilian labor force. The graphic below
illustrates the dramatic overhiring of blacks by the top three federal executive
(U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development) overhired blacks by 363% over their proportion in the civilian labor
The Department of Education overhired blacks by 329% over their proportion in the civilian
And the U.S. Department of State overhired blacks by 231% over their proportion in the civilian
Most of the other preferred groups were hired by these three agencies at significantly
lower levels than blacks.
