    People are reading what they want to read rather than what has written, they then find it easier to compartmentalise in to their beliefs.

    Absolutely, Hants. People are distorting what was said in the first place by saying we are proposing positive discrimination and then using that to falsely state that we are prejudiced against white men. Absolutely shocking and worthy of Trump or even Machiavelli.

    What I said earlier in the tread is I would lie the Club to contribute to Black History Month, as I think we have a few good stories to tell.
    Which no-one has yet managed to reply properly to yet: at our club why can’t a white man look after a non white man’s - or woman’s - interests, and specifically what would those interests be that would be different to a white man’s?

    Your argument is like paper in the wind Mike...I for am not saying anything of the sort (compartmentalised or not). I already said, I don't give a **** what colour, gender, size, sexual preference they are. I just need them to do the job. If you believe otherwise, then, by definition, some positive discrimination must occur.........

    I’m trying to understand your disappointment. I replied to a specific comment.
    I don't personally care whether they are black, white, yellow, men women, neutral gender, gay, straight, short, tall, fat or thin, just that they can do the job, and any other suggestion is in my view, inverted prejudice.

    With
    And with Positive Discrimination. How does someone work effectively when they will be wondering if their appointment was more to benefit politically correct 'box ticking' than it was to their skill set, achievements and potential.
    P.D was mentioned in post 25 (I think) and any 'agreement' was referring to age.
    Have a nice weekend!
