Affirmative Action /Positive Discrimination: Good or Bad Idea?
#1
Wink 
Positive discrimination is the selection of a candidate for a position on the grounds of race, sex or colour rather than merit alone. There are many ways this can be implemented. Some US police forces score all applicants and select between candidates of equal ability based on race. In the 1997 UK election Tony Blair created all-women shortlists in winnable seats. Some universities have quotas for candidates from ethnic minorities. The proposition can run the case in a number of ways. They could argue for legislation calling for the use of positive discrimination in the public sector or universities. Alternatively, for more of a challenge, they could argue that it is in the private sector’s own interest to introduce positive discrimination.

It is discrimination. Candidates should be selected purely on merit, irresepective of skin colour or sex.

I agree but, in a world dominated mostly by white males, is that the case? HAve they all been selected on merit or because of who they are and who they know? Could it be that one type of discrimination could somewhat balance out another that has existed for so many years?

Horrifyingly bad idea.

Take a look at what Irshad Manji has to say. She is one sharp cookie. Women have risen to power over the centuries.

White men being in power is bull. It is Anglo-Saxon, Arab, and Asian men who generally rise to the highest positions. They get their by their own merit.

There are ALWAYS exceptions though.
