Talking about percentages, that brings me back to when siskue2005 was saying about him/her not being able to get a job as a doctor in the UK because of his nationality/race. When you actually look at the figures only the white race in the UK are heavily down in terms of percentage. NHS medical staff are made up of 55% white, yet the population of the UK is over 80% white. When looking at Asian, NHS Medical staff is 30% , yet the population is only 7%. If these numbers are accurate, how can anyone claim an Asian isn't getting a doctors job because of their race ?dans79 wrote: ↑Tue Jun 30, 2020 6:46 pmThose numbers by themselves don't say much. For example, a person with one point of view would argue black people only make up 12 to 15% of the population, and those numbers don't reflect that. A person with a different view would argue black people commit a disproportionately high number of violent crimes and thus are more likely to have a violent interaction with police.strad wrote: ↑Tue Jun 30, 2020 6:39 pmNumbers shot to death by the cops

the Washington Post keeps track of these numbers as well. You can look it up.
In short the water is a lot muddier than it might seem at first glance.
I applied to join the police force 3 times in my 20's, I had all the qualifications and some and no reasons (criminal ect) to not get the job. I'm 6ft tall, 80KG. They turned me down each time, and all I can think of is....... I wasn't good enough for the job for some reason or another. I accepted that, and moved on.
