    Quotas, quotas, quotas.

    I avoid mentioning my ethnicity on forms and applications if possible, lest I get 'positively' discriminated against. Equal opertunities my ass.

    It's sad, but I every time I see a minority or woman get promoted, hired for something important, or get an award of whatever, I automatically assume it was due to tokenism. You just don't know anymore.
    Maybe they were just better than you?

    Can someone please explain what a 'white' company is? I'm thinking of Colgate but for some reason that sounds wrong.

    As far as I know you can choose not to answer those kinds of questions.
    But they want stats on how many people of different ethnicities, genders etc. they have so they can demonstrate whether they're offering equal opportunities.

    Why do white companies demand their employees write down their ethnic origin group and what their orientation is. What are they going to do with that information?
    So they can stop black people from working at the company or make sure not so many black people work there
