Are white men wanted anywhere?

It's not just the Canadian Government who discriminates against white males. Look at the UK.
A police force was warned yesterday that it may have acted illegally by rejecting 186 job applications from white men in favour of those from women and ethnic minorities.

The Police Federation, which represents rank and file officers, accused Avon and Somerset of positive discrimination in a recent recruitment drive. It claimed that the force turned down some strong candidates on grounds of race or gender.

A spokesman for the force said that all successful applicants had undergone the "same rigorous selection process".

When the recruitment process opened last summer, 242 white men were put forward, 40 per cent of the total, with the rest from under-represented groups, including women, people from minority ethnic groups and disabled men and women.

The force confirmed the majority of the rejected applications were white males.

Paul Hazel, Avon and Somerset's head of personnel and training, said: "The majority of those deselected were white men because the force's workforce is over-represented by white men."

Let's hire everyone on a scorecard so that everyone will be represented everywhere in an equal manner! This is of vital importance to equality and political correctness.
For example, we should hire women for the fire department even if they cannot meet the physical requirements of the job. Just change the requirements so that both genders are equal! I am sure a 120 lb woman can do just as good a job of hauling my smoke-addled carcass from a burning building as a 200 lb man can. After all, a woman can do anything a man can do.
