Is it good? is it bad?
Does it happen in the workplace? Should it be allowed when recruiting in the workplace?

We dont have it in the UK.
Not helpful to select someone based on skin colour and nothing else.
We have postive action for a few situations, but that is where it is relevant and the person needs to meet ability criteria as well.

No it's bad. It's like bloody participation awards just for showing up.
Hire the most qualified.
There's a company in Canada I think that doesn't hire white people to give others chances, this promotes a victim mentality and is overall just wrong.

if you mean like a quota dependant on factors like gender, race, etc. No, it's a stupid way of doing things. People should employ those who are passionate, hard working and good at the job. Let's say there was a mediocre applicant that was female, and a really good applicant that is male. They should employ the male, not because of gender but because of their work compared to the other applicant. (and vice versa.) Knowingly giving people who aren't interested or are not as good as others the job because of quota is sabotaging your business in terms of betterment.

How can you distinguish between positive action and positive discrimination?

Because one is promotion on quotas and skin colour and the other is restricted to ability and specific circumstances where its justified. Look it up.

positive discrimination happens everywhere, giving up your seat on the bus for a pregnant lady is discrimination

It's one of those YouTube companies like Vice or Jubilee, sorry I didn't mention it by name, I didn't want to get it wrong. I read it in an article about a year ago.

If you are making such a serious point about discrimination you really should provide specific sourced material for what you claim. I think that your claim that a company refuses to hire white people was made up by yourself and hence you cannot find the specific name of the company. I would suggest that other posters should not believe you until you provide the name of the company.
Positive discrimination does not mean discrimination against white people either.

What. I read an article about a year ago and wanted to mention that. And yes positive discrimination can mean discrimination against white people.

These aren't the exact ones I mentioned but are the same idea.

Not in the examples you gave! The first two are just non legally tried rumours. And the last example is whereby BAME are simply not employed in that area at all. That is the true racial discrimination. Not failing to continue to employ white people who are already reserving all the jobs for themselves! Do you see what i mean?

I get what you mean. I was just talking about an article I saw about a year ago, I didn't really mean too much by it.
