Well said.

The thing is there are plenty of white people that come from disadvantaged backgrounds too. But they don't usually get preferential treatment and can't play 'the race card' if they feel discriminated against. I think positive discrimination for etnic miorities should be scrapped. Instead the government should focus postive disrimination on everyone from disadvantaged backgrounds, regardless of race. And employers should be able to pick the best people for the job and not have to employ 'five ethnic minorities' or 'five disabled people' to fill their quotas.
I think there was recognition of my circumstances when I applied to Cambridge, so I can't complain.

If you posted more often here, you might understand.

This is an offensive, cruel attempt at humiliating an active member of this forum.

Is it morally right to favour one race over another because it is the minority? Even though it is meant with good intentions, to me this is racism in itself. I thought we lived in a meritocratic society where ethnicity is irrelevant. Surely it isn't fair for minority races to be faboured over the majority when it comes to employment etc? Positive discrimination is institutionalised racism!
whey, safe view, except for the fact that meritocracy is discrimination, what is this world coming to.
