Interracial question

Are race X step children, entitled to race Y affirmative action hiring goals, retention goals, or promotional goals at LANSLLNS, if they are legally adopted by a step parent or step parents of race Y? Example: Is a white male step child eligible for the specific affirmative action goals of their hispanic or black step parents?

In support of their Affirmative Action goals and utilization analysis reports, federally funded contractors voluntarily ask race related job application questions relying on the honor system. Federal job application forms don't have a biological parent box to check.

If job applicants do not supply information about their race/sex, which I never do, HR enters it for them. Interestingly enough, HR assigned an incorrect race to me. I spent a couple of months trying to get this changed (i.e., deleted so the entry is blank). They finally deleted the race entry, only to have it show up again a year later. Still wrong.

But to address the original posters question, white women who take the last names of their asian husbands are often listed as asian and hence classified as minorities. So yes, in our color blind society a person is entitled to whatever sex/race that will give them the most advantage.

Checking a minority box might help you get a quick settlement after you've been fired from LANL. I can't see how it would help you get hired in the first place.

LANS and LLNS each have Affirmative Action programs with utilization goals sorted by race and job titles. Have a look see. If a mechanical engineer is race Y and LANS or LLNS are "underutilized" in race Y, for a related job title (engineer, group leader, etc.), the mechanical engineer would likely benefit from identifying with race Y on his or her application. Race identification as earlier stated, depends on the applicant honor system, not on biological parent race verification, and is therefore subject to abuse.

If a couple gets married in West Virginia, moves to California, and gets divorced, are they still brother and sister?

Depends on their genders.

If race XX and race XY apply for a job at LLNL, race XX will receive job even though race XX is less qualified.
Can you believe that? If you doubt, just read newline on hires and promotions.
