This article alleges that the Florida bridge collapse was a result of Affirmative Action. Minorities were given the task to construct the bridge and were selected mainly because of their minority status rather than the most competent people to do the job
"It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7
of the same year. ... From the time the deck was built, it began to move vertically in windy
conditions, which led to construction workers giving the bridge the nickname Galloping Gertie.
The motion was observed even when the bridge opened to the public. Several measures
aimed at stopping the motion were ineffective, and the bridge's main span finally collapsed
under 40-mile-per-hour (64 km/h) wind conditions the morning of November 7, 1940."
Obviously, this proves that American white men were incompetent at designing a bridge.
A Chinese bridge built around 600 is still standing and in use after more than 1400 years.
"During the next 1,400 years, the bridge survived at least eight wars, ten major floods and
numerous earthquakes, the most recent being the 7.2-magnitude Xingtai earthquake in 1966.
Yet, the support structure remains intact and the bridge is still in use."
Did the Chinese have 'racially superior' white engineers tell them how to build the bridge?
