    Washington Times: Feds say employee background checks are racist

    A federal agency has issued a directive claiming that federal contractors who perform criminal background checks may violate the Civil Rights Act of 1964, because “racial and ethnic minorities are arrested and convicted at a higher rate than whites.” The Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) has issued Directive 306, which states that contractors who conduct background checks and exclude job seekers “based upon their criminal history may be discriminatory.” The OFCCP even states that contractors who advertise hiring positions for only applicants with “clean records” are in violation of anti-discrimination laws.

    Perhaps there is a plan to audit the Fed and those conducting the audit want personnel with the requisite morals for that particular task.
