I re-call the concept of "positive discrimination" in the 1980's, which allowed the Civil Service (police, army, etc )to discriminate against people based on their skin colour.

what kind of fcked-up world do we live in, where in order to fight discrimination, we set up discriminating bodies, such as the MOBOS and the National Black Police Association ?

We can put 'black' in the name but not be racist. You can't put 'white' in the name because that makes you racist.

Identity politics for me, but not for thee.

And there are plenty of self hating people willing to fight to enable it....and sugar coat it to the normies to justify it.

Either rid ourselves of this identity politics or allow it for everybody.....I'd prefer the former but that genie is out of the bottle. If you maintain different rules for different people based upon skin colour.....then what does that remind you of.

- how would the agency fare if the shoe was on the other foot ie. 'a whites only agency' ?
- which employers are likely to use these models ?
- what will be the reaction from other modelling agencies ?
- is it ok to call them racist ? or is that word reserved for those who discriminate in favour of ginger people ?

I typed a long reply to this, then thought. It's not one to get involved in. It may possibly by unethical and illegal. As would a whites only.

Either way it just seems unnecessary.

I do a bit of modelling and TV/film work and this doesn't surprise me. To the outsider, this *looks* racist, but from a casting perspective, you're hired purely on your look, which often encompasses race. If an agency has a large number of artistes/models of a certain race/look, producers and the like will naturally go to those agencies to cast certain roles.

An example, I recently shot for Netflix series "Topboy". Now I know I got this job because I fit the look required for the scene. If I was signed to such an agency, I'd probably find that I'd get more work.

It's easier to cast a "young white male" or an "athletic black male" if you go to an agency that specialises in these. How this would be received if there was an agency for all whites, I can imagine.

 


Who Cares?

The MOBOs isn't a discriminating body, give it a rest

This is a sensible point.

In a society that wasn't seeing affirmative action being pushed within our institutions I think I would support this rationale as.....well just sensible.

You could have agencies for black this or white that or Asian or whatever and no one would need to get narked about it.

However, you know as well as I do that we aren't existing within a framework like that.

Instead we are essentially seeing white males being discriminated against for....well mainly being white males instead of achievement coming down to perceived meritocracy....and indeed....males more generally being criticised for their natural masculinity.

It's everywhere in society now and I'm fed up being told skin colour doesn't matter, we are all the same when actually minorities are the worst offenders

This is correct. My son recently graduated in Musical theatre, trying to get an agent is difficult and is based largely on looks, he was told by one that they liked him but already had a similar looking boy so.. no thanks. For example they would not cast the best person for the role in Miss Saigon if she/he was not Asian.
I believe a famous female star forfeited a role in West Side Story as she was being abused as she was not Hispanic. I agree though that no Agency would get away with saying "Whites only"

The trouble is that humans never really just want equality. They always seek advantage because it is in our nature. This manifests itself in the modern world in many forms. It works on an individual level but also in groups that identify with each other.

The only interesting question is why some White people appear to act in a counter intuitive way and pander to the whims of other ethnic groups.

The answer must be that at some level they gain an advantage. When you look at who it is that is pushing the identity politics agenda, you see that it comes from a desire of the rich to get richer with their minions just parroting the mantra out of fear for their careers.
Then there are the useful idiots who are willing victims of indoctrination or just feel that to speak out against the agenda will make them appear socially inferior.

Malcolm X explained why white liberals look to promote other ethnicities......I think I part agree with him.

His emphasis is on the purely negative but my emphasis is more on the cultural. In part there is that demographic who have been taught to dislike their own genetic history even though they most probably had no ancestors involved in anything other than surviving day to day.

They genuinely believe that they are protecting people and promoting a better cohesive society despite there being zero evidence for multicultural, multi ethnic societies ever having worked.

There are also some who, though white, don't really regard themselves as such and align to a different group, some of which are opposed to whites.

Human behavior is complex. Evaluating behaviour is difficult.
It seems that part of that behaviour is denying it in favour of a veneer of delusion.

Certainly people are easily persuaded by authority figures and the extent to which this serves them personally is an interesting question. There must also be other evolutionary forces at work which make some people migrate toward others who are recognisably different.

And the other way with white flight which essentially is the same as not integrating.
It's all human nature and should you punish people for millions of years of human evolution?
