    Okay, see ya.
    I know it's not your definition. It's the most basic individual action of a social construct.

    You're equating any recognition of race whatsoever to lifetimes of oppression continuing today. That's disgusting.

    3.)I had a problem with hiring males in my profession. I'd try some but a majority of my employees were female, because the men literally were dishonest and arrogant. Though some of them were very experienced and smart, I never benefited because they were lazy, unproductive, required higher salaries and petty thieves. I couldn't afford to keep hiring, training and firing them after awhile. It was a literal reality for me.
    1.) no he doesnt
    2.) it wasnt based on anything really, i just made up a scenario where by definition a minority was being factually racist.
    I wanted to see how many apologists, enablers and or dishonest posters would lie and say it wasnt racism.
    3.) sounds like a lot of the workforce to me unfortunately.

    1.) thats good because facts and 10+ definitions in this thread all support that thought
    2.) youll have to be more specific. Remedy to what exactly?

    If caught doing this its illegal and the law will take action.

    If its just a person opinion you are looking to remedy that may or may not be able to happen.
    Theres no legal course of action nor would i want there to be. But we can try to provide better education to those lacking in that deparment

    3.) of course no i have to follow the same rules as everybody else

    A big part of the problem is that the wrong questions are being asked. You can't help fix anything, till you identify it correctly. I believe some form of discrimination, whether based on culture, race, education/privilege, status, profession etc will always exist. Part of evolution is the ability to learn from mistakes and envy and grouping is an innate human trait. Trying to make that go away is like chasing the wind, but providing equal opportunity and encouraging higher standards can eventually be achieved.

    The male superiority complex is a crappy problem for the workforce and society in general. That's something that needs to change in time.

    1.) agreed
    2.) also agreed this is why idiotically dismissing certain types of racism based on feelings is counterproductive and part of the problem.
    3.) also agreed
    4.) i agree here to but ignorance and ignorant teaching is what inflates this to be race based or gender based etc
    5.) yep its gonna be around while past our lives and our kids lives
    6.) I agree with this 100% too. Equal rights does help and has proven itself
    7.) Agree and it has not as fast as it should but it has

    If Agent J was a governmental worker or contractor, it seems that he would be subject to some kind of sanction for racist hiring practices. However if he is a private contractor, it seems that he should hire whoever he would like with out interference. Hopefully if his racist ways are discovered by his clientele, they will relieve him of his duties. Free markets can punish bad behavior too.

    1.) actually he would be in trouble no matter where he worked if caught
    2.) he already is free to do so like everybody and just about everything else as long as he doesnt violate others rights or break the law
    3.) hopefully he gets caught breaking the law and then rights and justice wins
    4.) yes it "can" but it can also flourish it.

    Ill stick with rights and the law. If the public join in a legal fashion and help, thats awesome too.
