Therefore you believe that quotas are a solution to this problem, correct?  So maybe i'm not the one obsessed with quotas.


Merit means the best person for the job gets the job regardless of what they look like (race, gender, eye colour, whatever).  That's what POC and women have been asking for since the beginning.  It's the only way to choose someone for a job without discriminating on the basis of race or sex.

You obviously don't understand the criticism of the concept and I bet you never will. The notion that being the best person for the job has ever actually been the thing that gets people jobs is farcical.

Why is it difficult?  Conduct a study like the ones mentioned.  You want to discriminate against caucasians and men and give those jobs to women or POC.  I don't really have a problem with this if there's discrimination going on against POC/women in order to negate that discrimination, but if you're going to discriminate against people based on race/sex and take their jobs away to give to others you have an obligation to at least know what you're talking about and have some kind of evidence that a problem exists due to racism/sexism.  Yelling "racism and sexism" isn't good enough, it's terrible social science, and so are basing conclusions on anecdotes.  You either believe in justice, or you believe in justice only for certain people based on their race or gender, which is what racists and sexists do.

Why are you whinging about discrimination against caucasians and men when literally no one has proposed that?

No you haven't, you simply dodged the question.

Wrong again. I answered, and you ignored the answer.

No.  Again, if you want to discriminate against people on the basis of race and sex, which is kind of a serious thing to do, the onus is on you to provide evidence that it's justified, not pull things from your behind.

Like you're doing here when you claim I want to discriminate. OK.

If you want to know what acceptable evidence means you can take a social science class on research methods. Correlation doesn't equal causation, for instance.

Speaking of dodging the question, look at you go.
