A twisting line about two miles long is queuing up to a door labelled “All the Good Jobs.”  Virtually everyone in the line is a White male, identically dressed in suits and ties, carrying briefcases and talking into cell phones, all except three-quarters of the way along, where you can see a solitary woman and an Aboriginal male.  Behind them, one White male is saying to another, “Hey!  How did they get ahead of us?”

Behold, the tragedy of affirmative action.
