    Race and ethnicity is a universally protected class. If someone is denied a job because they're a white person, they have the same standing to sue as any minority. Oddly, that situation comes up somewhat rarely.

    If need be, absolutely. Laws are retooled routinely. Our constitution has 27 amendments, our laws are not set in stone.

    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Well, we'll just have to agree to disagree. Just because you agree with it doesn't mean you're not discriminating against a group you leave out a protection.

    Or... it could be as that we just don't hear about it, much like the point of the thread.

    I don't think it's as rare as you think.

    My wife is a labor and employment attorney and she has numerous stories of whites being discriminated against.

    There have been scores of reverse discrimination cases in the last 30 years or so
    by whites who felt they were denied jobs because of their skin color.

    Several states have recently faced legal battles waged by whites claiming they were unfairly treated in favor of protecting and promoting blacks and Hispanics.

    And those whites had the same standing to sue as any minority correct? Hence the characterization that racial protection is only afforded to minorities is inaccurate.

    I think you need to go back and reread what was being talked about. It wasn't protections for everyone but white people. Protections was probably the wrong word, but it's what was used so everyone kept using it.
