    I am new so I may not know the protocol, but I was asking a legit question about race and sports departments.

    Shall I explain more what my issue was? I just have noticed that it seems that some newsrooms are more eager to diversify their departments rather than get the best candidate. I'd genuinely like to get other people's opinions on the issue.

    What he said. You asked a legit question and then tossed in a bunch of garbage that had the tone of "they hired some of them wimmen and minor-ities and look at the mess it caused."
    So, yeah, it got locked. As will this one. Or deleted. You'll know soon.
    Now find another soapbox for that shit. Don't bring it around here.

    Fine. I didn't realize the issue. Would it be alright to rephrase the question in a more neutral way?

    If you can pull that off, power to you. I don't see it happening and I don't see some - a small minority - of our membership treating the discussion as it should be treated.

    Give it a shot but we're watching.

    Such as:

    Why are white men not hired instead of broads and colored folk?

    Is that how you meant it?

    I'll save moddy the bother. Thread locked.
