In an effort to ensure that positions being offered by larger companies to the general public are being offered to and pursued by a diverse group of individuals, the government has put in place reporting requirements that mandate that these companies track this information through voluntary questionnaires.

So how do you propose they check to see if a company is receiving a diversified group of applicants and then hiring proportionate to the number of those who do apply? Is tghey don't check, how can they protect?
I have to agree. It doesn't matter what race you are. You should be judged on your abilities not your ancestry. No matter which way it goes if you are picked for a job position or school because of your race over someone with better qualifications then that is discrimination. I have been saying that the race box should be taken off all applications/test forms since I was in middle school almost 20 years ago. The only time I think it is useful is on birth certificates or drivers license for id purposes.
Sadly this country went from one type of discrimination to another. I hope I live to see the day that we are all truly colorblind. :-)
