Are they not also a significant minority in the US? And yet somehow, they managed to vastly over-represent themselves in STEM fields. Maybe, and this may be just a wild ass guess, but maybe it's because they spent their time focusing on their homework rather than whining about diversity?
And you never stop hearing the white people whining about it! Right? Right!?!? It never stops!
Yet another dumbshit article about (the lack of) diversity in the workplace brought to you by your local bleeding hearts liberals. If it's not racial, it's gender. If it's not gender, they'll cry about ethnic diversity, sexual orientation, or something else.
Why aren't more women working in IT? Why aren't more men working as registered nurses?
Why aren't more homosexuals working in IT? Why aren't more heterosexuals working in interior design?
Why aren't more people of diverse racial backgrounds working in IT? Why aren't more people of caucasian background working in fast food?
Why do ducks quack? Because they look like a duck, and sound like a duck.
And because some idiot seems likely to come along with some crap like "so says the ac," I'll echo this using my account.
For the last time - equal opportunity does NOT mean equal outcomes. Correlation is not causation - if you can actually prove the system is biased against minorities/women/any other special interest, then do it instead of complaining the outcomes aren't what you want. If you want to prove someone isn't being paid fairly, the ONLY way to do it is show that people with equal educations, equal experience, and equal OUTPUT are not being paid equally.
Well... while I'm not one for hate and vitriol like most of the politically oriented people out there (it seems), I sit back and watch and: 1) I agree with the other response that neither of the two major parties actually represent a majority of anybody but politicians and businesses, and 2) I thought the tea party was an interesting idea until they became right wing on steroids. I thought they were interesting until they started campaigning against abortion, and inviting people like Sarah Pailin to speak at events. Again... I don't run out and start hating on either abortion or anti-abortion activists, I know they both have their opinions and beliefs, but I think it should largely stay out of politics at this point, and it's not going to change any time soon - both parties use it to rile up their bases, though.
So no hate against the Tea Party, but they are hardly a big difference between them and republicans - more like republicans demanding what the party SAYS they represent as opposed to how republican candidates actually act when they get into office. The GOP just needs some house cleaning, IMO.
People SAY they want freedom and liberty, but neither major party offers it. There's really only one out there that does (besides complete anarchists), and everybody thinks they're "crazy" because they want freedom and liberty, which, OMG, requires people to take back some responsibility for themselves.
