Now if your company policy says "50% must be of minority" you end up hiring the top 5% of white and top 50% of minority. Of course the new white employees will outperform the minority ones simply because you got crÃme-de-la-crÃme of the whites and merely "above average" of the minorities. And of course the disparity will cause frictions, rift in the team, disparity of handled workload and worse code quality on the average. Oh, and the company policies will protect the minority employees, punishing the whites who confront them for worse performance.

Perhaps this is the price society must pay until the historical consequences of white supremacy are reversed?

dunno about that. many people want to APPEAR good and decent there. TOO FUCKING BAD LYNCH MOBS AND DENYING TRIAL is pretty fucking far from being decent. yet statistics and probabilities say that some people in the lynch mob were rapists too. so yeah, they got a lot of work ahead of them in being viewed as fair and civilized society.

Yeah, why don't the fuckers just follow your shining personal example?
