White Women Benefiting the Most from Affirmative Action.

Despite Affirmative Action being originally created to help minorities in the U.S to catch up with the majority white population, evidence points out that white women have been the biggest beneficiaries from such legislation and are getting hired more frequently than other minorities of both genders; and women are better paid by the so-called patriarchs in cahoots with government: Here's Time reporting on it:
"While people of color, individually and as groups, have been helped by affirmative action in the subsequent years, data and studies suggest women — white women in particular — have benefited disproportionately. According to one study, in 1995, 6 million women, the majority of whom were white, had jobs they wouldn’t have otherwise held but for affirmative action. 
Another study shows that women made greater gains in employment at companies that do business with the federal government, which are therefore subject to federal affirmative-action requirements, than in other companies — with female employment rising 15.2% at federal contractors but only 2.2% elsewhere. And the women working for federal-contractor companies also held higher positions and were paid better. 
Even in the private sector, the advancements of white women eclipse those of people of color. After IBM established its own affirmative-action program, the numbers of women in management positions more than tripled in less than 10 years. Data from subsequent years show that the number of executives of color at IBM also grew, but not nearly at the same rate."
Next time a white feminist equates themselves with minorities, despite belonging to most privileged class majority, you shove these pesky facts on their faces.
