David Walker on Civil Rights
A: Yes, for civil unions. I oppose "same sex marriage".
A: Oppose. I believe in affirmative action but not quotas. I believe that people have to demonstrate that they're taking affirmative steps to prevent discrimination within the population that's available to fill the jobs that they have. If the evidence is they're not doing that--and the presumption should be that they are doing that--then only in those circumstances should the government intervene.
Q: What do you mean by "the population that's available to fill the job"?
A: The key is the qualified population. I used to run a worldwide practice. There are sometimes very few people from protected groups, rightly or wrongly, who are qualified for a particular job. You need to increase the supply to increase diversity.
