well it's hardly an 'industry' if it consists o fwhat you say it consists of, but no matter.
Does the black and multi ethnic police federation have paid officials? It stands to reason thst its officials will be black or from other ethnic minorities. The fact thst thid grtouip exists is perhaps a comment on the way tha tpolice officers of ethnic minorities have been treated historically by their colleagues
People who do jobs get paid. Peoples' view on matters of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation an so on are by definition political so if you are going to be involved in what you strangely call an 'industry'in a pro active then it stands to reason that your involvement will represent a political perspectiveintrms of wanting to do something about issues of equality.
I'm no better informed about what UKIP means by 'political correctness' and what it intends to do about it than when I originlly asked the question: but as ever I've enjoyed our discussion.
There are paid officials. There are open policies of appointing BEM candidates over white ones because of their skin colour. There are also training positions that only BEM candidates can apply for. The NUT offers free management training courses (with stays in hotels paid for) to BEM only.
There is a whole sub-culture where it is okay to treat people differently depending on their skin colour as long as it is done for "the right reasons". This is also true of gender as well (All women short-lists anyone?).
I, for one, find it highly distasteful.
Whilst we are talking about some admittedly annoying UKIP politicians whose various misdeeds include not paying parking charges; there is a story floating about about a "community leader" and how Bangladesh would like to interview him in connection with war crimes committed during Bangladesh's war of independence. Which is more serious war crimes or illegal parking?
And yet which one are we discussing?
