Consider the institutionalized racial bias found in Ferguson, Missouri by the Justice Department. Consider the future "captains of industry" singing racist jingles on their way to a formal fraternity party last week. Consider the gender discrimination lawsuit going on right now in Silicon Valley.

Do you really think there is no employment discrimination in America?

Not from every viewpoint, but hopefully it will be a measure that can contribute to more eqality and fairness in society in the long run.
