Hiring should be always on the skill basis.

Not on minority, majority, women, disability political correctness crap.

Get things done. Business should be about profit, not charity.

Don't play hero of equality and inclusiveness. That is going to destroy more companies and the talent than anything.

We'll have to agree to disagree then, as I believe this is a HUMAN issue. Ask anybody what one of the few core values they expect from living within a society, and the majority will say they want the right to be happy and the right to be respected and treated fairly, equally. Unfortunately, humans are too dumb and egocentric to make that a reality.

I didnt mean "shitty company" in the sense it's a bad place to work, I wasn't trying to insult you. I should have said that if you're company hires ONLY on diversity, then that's a shitty practice. Still, be mad at management for that, not the people they hire.

As for your second point, it's not worth even arguing over. You're essentially saying that humans aren't predators because they live with one another....huh what? makes no sense to me, but then again, my "cooked up" theories are only based on facts after all......
