>>16854311 Depends on the treatment I guess. I mean if you could be more specific. I mean I've been the only black person in a whole department before. Is that special treatment or do you mean like people getting promotions?
That's not positive discrimination. Positive discrimination would be hiring more minorities under the illusion that they really are more qualified, the same way negative discrimination would be refusing to hire them under the illusion that they'll do poorly simply because of their race.
Affirmative action is simply hiring more minorities because they're qualified enough and it's been decided that minorities are needed, making their minority status an extra qualification. Just like a hot girl will get hired for a counter position over a fat hairy guy of equal skill because customers prefer dealing with hot girls.
There are many factors in who to hire outside of their skill level.
>>16854307 I think positive discrimination is a necessary evil because there's still a lot of inequality happening (in the workplace etc). As much as everyone nowadays claims to be accepting and not prejudiced, I still get a lot of people who just judge me based on my ethnicity, and I end up either having to prove myself to these people, or just leaving them be with their narrow point of view.
Personally I hate getting special treatment because it means people are only basing this off my ethnicity and not my actually personality, skill etc (for example, when applying for uni or for jobs).
