All this reminds me of a story I heard from Ben Rich, who used to run
Lockheed's skunk works down in Burbank.

When they got involved in some heavy govt. contracts the
Affirmative Action requirements were brought up.  They
were located in a heavily Hispanic area, but had no
Hispanic employees.

Ben said "if you can find me any Hispanic aeronautical
and avionics engineers with Ph.D's and who can pass
your security regs, fine.  Until then, go away.  The
regulators did.  Funny thing, that.
