Non-EEO Policies

  • Colour-blind policies do not result in a colour-blind society
    • Whites are advantaged by colour blind policies
      • Promotion via seniority advantages Whites bec they are usually senior
      • Admissions solely on aptitude test scores hide educational disadvantages due to SES/race
        • See also gladwell’s point that aptitude test scores fail to predict performance in the “‘distant future” performance (i.e. they have decreasing “predictive” validity although they have concurrent validity)

Types of EEO

  • Support for EEO implies support for hiring unqualified candidates over qualified ones
    • EEO Hiring involves choosing among
      • Equally qualified candidates
      • Comparable candidates

      • Unqualified candidates
        • Do not meet min requirements for jobs

Public Support for EEO

  • Depends on whether procedural justice concerns are violating when implementing EEO
    • What is procedural justice?
  • Depends on type of EEO prog (see previous slide)

Political backing for EEO

  • EEO is a social experiment by liberal democrats
    • Is this really relevant for Canada?

Myths in the Human rights doc

  • Racism is exaggerated
  • People in Canada do not notice race
  • Mentioning racism or addressing racism constitutes reverse racism towards Whites
  • If racial discrimination did not occur in the past, it didn’t occur in the present, & won’t occur in the future
  • Racialized people are…
    • less credible, too sensitive, manipulative in use of race card, to blame for racism.
  • Immigrants…
    • take away jobs, commit more crime, drain Canadian system, do not fit.
