In 1963, the great civil rights leader Martin Luther King said it was his hope that black Americans would no longer be judged on their color of their skin, but on the content of their character.

Fifty years later, the Obama administration's Equal Employment Opportunity Commission says King got it wrong.

The EEOC launched two lawsuits against private companies this week over their use of criminal background checks, claiming that in rejecting applicants with proven criminal records, they somehow discriminated against minorities under a disparate impact clause in their guidelines.

Aside from the inherent and insulting racism in that presumption suggesting that black applicants have crime in their DNA because statistics show more have criminal records the measure puts employers, in this case Dollar General Stores and BMW Manufacturing, in an impossible position.

On one hand, they may be sued if they don't hire criminals to satisfy the EEOC.

On the other hand, if they do hire criminals, they could be sued later by customers and shareholders when employees of whatever race do their jobs under the influence of drugs, get violent with co-workers or customers, embezzle money, or steal from the company.

Those things will hurt profits, but only if EEOC gets its way.

Equally troubling, this underscores the White House's increasingly aggressive interference in hiring and firing decisions by private employers a power businesses need to keep a first-rate workforce in an increasingly competitive world.

These companies need to ask why the DOJ doesn't hire these convicts. Apparently, the government has no problem hiring whomever they want.

Surely thou jesteth? The DOJ is chock FULL of convicts lately it seems. Lying under oath constitutes criminality I do believe, even IF the DOJ doesn't prosecute themselves. No shortage of thugs hired by our govt for sure imo.
