The Commerce Department is considering naming Arab Americans a socially and economically disadvantaged minority group that is eligible for special business assistance.

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) petitioned Commerce earlier this year to ask that Arab Americans be made eligible for the Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA), which helps minority entrepreneurs gain access to capital, contracts and trade opportunities.

The ADC petition cited “discrimination and prejudice in American society resulting in conditions under which Arab-American individuals have been unable to compete in a business world.” The group claimed discrimination against Arab Americans increased after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.
Meh. Not really enough to get outraged here but I'm low on my Muzzie News quota :)

I'm actually surprised that they aren't. Considering fucking ASIAN-americans (i.e. Chinese who will rule the world shortly) are a recognized disadvantaged business class. Arabs have got to have more disadvantages then them (except for driving ability and pronouncing l's)

How about no group gets special business assistance. Either do it for everyone on an individual basis regardless of your 'group' or don't do it for anybody.

It's become a bit of a joke in the world of Federal contracting. Most disadvantaged companies are really just shell companies "owned" by the wife of the guy whose got the biggest asphalt/concrete/tunnel/bridge crew in the area. But they get to mark it up 30% just because some Fed stooge decided that a company owned by a woman gets preferential treatment.

There's a reason I hire Dwarf Construction and it's not their abilities.

The only people that should have any special rights in this country are the Injuns and that dosen't mean your mother telling you that you're 1/32 Cherokee

Hell even THP and The Fez Man are probably 1/32 black

The only reason you're alive to say that is they didn't have better chem/bio or conventional weapons than the white devils. The south american indians at least had/have those blow darts with deadly frog poison.

Some of the Injuns assimilated quite well, the Cherokee even owned black slaves - that's why you hear all these blacks like Earl claim they are Cherokee, after the Civil War when slavery was outlawed and everything, the slaves that the Indians owned all became members of the tribe that owned them, the Cherokee have been fighting this in the courts ever since, the last thing I remember a couple of years ago the courts ruled that the Cherokee can exclude the descendants of slaves that they owned from the tribe.

The Shawnee made the mistake of siding with the British in the War of 1812
