    This. So they can hire women/non-whites to fill their PC quotas even when those people are less able/qualified. Happens with uni applications as well. That's straight white male patriarchy for ya...

    Think it's something to do with stats/data collection or something like that - that way they can see who's applying/getting hired I guess? From there it's probably supposedly easier to highlight if a company is being discriminatory with their hiring process.
    That's not to say that it's not a flawed process, for example you can't tell someone's orientation by looking at them (or someone's ethnicity in many cases). I think there's probably some element of quota-filling in there as well.

    I don't care if you don't care, I'm addressing what you said about non whites being less able in your comment. You're in denial.

    That's not what I meant. Some non-white groups are huge contributors in many Western companies. Remove your victim glasses and read it again.

    What's your evidence for your claim? Name your sources or is it a figment of your bigoted imagination?

    To be fair, he didn't say that non-white people were less able than white people
