On a wholly different topic,

On a wholly different topic, Stuart Taylor writes about a class action suit filed by Dennis Worth against HUD and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of white men, alleging race and sex discrimination. It is an interesting story, and the statistics are mind-boggling: 42 out of 43 people hired or promoted in Worth’s division were either African-American or women. I find the claim of discrimination highly plausible–all of us can vouch for the reality of such discrimination based on our experience in the business world–but what I don’t know is whether this lawsuit has a chance to succeed. Is discrimination against white men legal or not? I’m not sure, but Deacon is one of the country’s leading experts in this field. Hopefully he can enlighten us.
