#1 "positive discrimination"

Uh, isn't this new-speak for affirmative action?

JFM, are you ready to come home, yet? You've been on assignment over there long enough, bro!

#2 "Positive Discrimination". Whenever I hear that oxymoron I wonder whether the espouser is simply stupid or morally deranged. It's always one or the other.

#3 "Majority discrimination" would be more fitting.

#4 I'd go further and call it "racism" myself. Or perhaps "faithism". After all, if anyone publicly proposed excluding Muslim individuals in favour of non-Muslim French indviduals for positions, what else would it be called? The same goes for all other forms of so-called positive discrimination. Here in the UK there have been calls for penalising students from fee-paying schools in favour of state school pupils, when it comes to university placements. Apparently, to some people, paying extra out of your own pocket for more-than-bog-standard schooling for your children requires punishment, as it gives them the heinously unfair advantage of a better education. You see, it's not your ability, it's your background that counts. And if your face doesn't fit, you can f*&% off.

#5 He could have at least waited until someone brought out a water gun before surrendering.
