Federal Aviation Administration:  As part of U.S. DOT, FAA is a separate administration which maintains a huge minority set-aside program.  The first table, below, lists FAA's minority set-asides for 1998 as a percentage of total contracts.

          Fiscal 1996 is the most recent year for which we were able to obtain a report of the actual contract dollar amounts from which "white" contractors were excluded by FAA.  Rows 3, 4, 5, 8 and 9 represent FAA's minority and/or women set-asides.  The total of these rows (from column 2, bolded) is $549,820,000 from which "white, male owned" business were excluded.  (The table lists figures in millions of dollars.)

FAA Found GUILTY of Sexual Discrimination against MEN!

The EEOC recently ruled that FAA had deliberately falsified their "diversity records" in order to promote less-qualified women ahead of highly-qualified male employees!

FAA managers received "diversity bonuses" -- cash awards -- for this dishonest and illegal practice.

FAA Tells Disabled White Male Veteran They ONLY Hire MINORITIES!

DeWayne Currier is white, male, highly qualified, and is a disabled veteran.  His technical skills and work record were beyond reproach.  Yet  FAA officials told him ON THE RECORD "we can only hire minorities for this job!"

*  We use the term reverse discrimination reluctantly and only because it is so widely understood.  In our opinion there really is only one kind of discrimination.
