I don't particularly see why business leaders would need to give lip service to affirmative action. And when we're talking about affirmative action, we are not talking about quotas. Quota systems have been discredited and discarded long ago, and where affirmative action is still practiced now, it is practiced quota-free. Of course, legal opponents of it still try to classify a.a. as "de facto quotas" but that's another matter.

That's an interesting point...
