White Privilege?

No it doesn't  does it and that is why it doesn't happen.

But that doesn't make for a such a good conspiracy theory that can be fed to the gullible.

Are you actually serious? you say positive discrimination does not happen in the police and fire service recruitment.

100% try getting in the fire service or police if you are a white male

I can't believe that is happening in the UK.  It doesn't seem to be happening here though I'm pretty sure someone will be along to contradict me.  I know that two of the ambulance paramedics where I live are white and from the UK.  My neighbour's granddaughter has just got engaged to a local cop.  He's also white and from the UK.  Maybe they couldn't get a job in England because they are white so migrated to Australia.  I'll have to ask them.  🤔  By the way   ...............  that's tongue in cheek.

Yes it does. But according to people like Backtodemocracy, who lives under a rock, this never happens so it must be "fake news".

Perhaps it's to make up for all the racial discrimination that happened in the past.  There must be a happy medium there somewhere though.  Bending the rules just to be politically correct is ridiculous.

Some (mainly from the left) believe two wrongs make a right, which is extremely sad (and hypocritical) and also demonstrates that we haven't moved past discrimination in the slightest.

Yes, I remember years ago Avon and Somerset Police (I think) being called out in the news for auto-rejecting any applications by white males. Not sure where it ended up.... I agree there need to be much more variety in the force but I’m not sure I would find much satisfaction in getting the job as the best women, over being the best person for the job.

Hey now, don't let common sense cloud your judgement. Some of the lefties around here will get upset!

When you can be bothered to cite some sources I'll take notice of your conspiracy theories

Cite  some sources for that generalisation and then it might have some validity.

I bet they wouldn't dare advertise for white only candidates to reflect a majority white area. (And rightly so btw)

If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

In 2006 and was reversed once the chief Constable had it pointed  out to him that positive discrimination was not legal, he did it to increase representation of people of colour in a force with a very low % of people of colour.

One instance 14 years ago is not an indication of a generalised policy in the past 20 years which is what you want to portray.

Chance would be a fine thing.  Just look at PB above and a couple of others.  Always got to stick the boot in.  Like they are any better.  😑
