Non sequitur. I was talking about enforcement of federal law:
"Without something that is statistics-based like affirmative action, it is utterly impossible to meaningfully enforce anti-discrimination laws, and therefore its absence will pretty much give the green light to all those closet (or otherwise) bigots who control the entrance to "the room", meaning they will deny entrance to more and more qualified non-whites, and their good old days of not having to see non-whites "in the room" will come closer and closer to again becoming a reality."

You understand that using "the most qualified" is how an anti-black bigot employer can discriminate without end and never have to pay the price if there is NO mathematics used in the enforcement of anti-discrimination laws, right? All that bigot has to do is this: If "the most qualified" of all those that applied up to a certain time was black, just let the laws of probability work over time and keep taking applications until a white person more qualified applies, and then hire that white person. So if you are charged with enforcing the law but you are allowed to use NO mathematics in your mix od tools of enforcement, how are you going successfully enforce the law and hold that bigot accountable and prevent all other bigots from doing the same thing?

BS. You cannot cite and link to a single thing that I've ever written that says that.
