Would (do) YOU ever discriminate based on race, gender, ethnicity, or general appearance?
I will say this once again before I get hate mail, I am not racist, sexist, or otherwise a biggot. This is just an interesting topic to me and I want to see people's views.
I'll give you a few scenarios where one might discriminate, and you can reply by saying if you would or not, if its right or wrong:
You run a small business with only a handful of employees in an ethnically diverse part of a large city. So faar, all of your employees are middle aged white males. You get two apllicants to work at your business- one is just like the other employees, one is an African American woman, both equally qualified for the job. You can't find a good reason to chose one over the other, their abilities are nearly identical. Which one would you hire if you had to pick one?
You are the head of a bomb squad in an urban area. You hear news from a correspondant that a bombing on the building you're in is expected to occur within five minutes. You only have enough men to cover one of the three entrances to the building. You can see that a Middle Eastern man approaches from one side with a bag, an elderly woman with a bag from another, and a group of male hispanic teenagers with a box are headed to the third entrance. Which one would you try to stop? Would you discriminate against these people when posed with such a threat?
