A Workforce That Looks Like America: Apple or Wal-Mart? The quiet silence of Progressives Who Want Racial Quotas and Criticize Wal-Mart Full Time

We hear with enormous conviction by progressives that it's important that a workforce looks like America. Apple Computer has become America's largest company by market capitalization with being overly white male and Asian. While progressives are quite about Apple's profit margins , we hear much about Wal-Mart being the focus of evil because of low wages. Yet, Wal-Mart's workforce looks like America compared to Apple:
Wal-Mart is a diverse employer. In our U.S. stores, more than 165,000 Hispanics; 251,000 African Americans; 39,000 Asian Americans; 5,000 Pacific Islanders; 16,000 Native Americans; 355,000 associates age 50 or older; and 856,000 women choose to work at Wal-Mart.
Wal-Mart is the Largest Corporate Cash Contributor in America. In 2006, Wal-Mart donated nearly $2 million in cash and products to support 75 disaster relief operations in 35 states.
Walmart’s fiscal year ending 2009: In the U.S., Walmart gave more than $378 million in cash and in-kind gifts, up from $296 million in 2007.
Wal-Mart is a leading employer of minorities and women in the U.S. and has more than 869,000 female associates.
The in-store clinics at Wal-Mart share the same commitment to every day low prices that our customers expect; a routine get well visit to a clinic typically costs between $40 and $65.
Does it bother progressives that they are attacking America's largest private employer of minorities and women? No. I guess they prefer the "un-diverse" world of Apple.
