I have decided recently that I would really like to become a member of the police force. Because I want a rewarding and exciting job etc. I have my reasons.
The thing that is REALLY bugging me about the police force at the moment is their racial equality crap and sexism policys. They WANT more colored people or people from other cultures and women on the force, which is fine yes, Im all for people having equal opertunitys, it makes society a better place to be. But the thing that is bugging me is that these people are MORE likely to get onto the force not necicarily because they are more qualified for the job but because of the way they were born. That in itself is sexist and racist.
Ok lets say you have your average steryotipical English man. Hes your typical white male. He is in AMAZING physical and psychological shape (which isnt stereotypical of English people lol). He is perfect for the job and highly qualified for it.
Then you have person two, a small arab woman. She is at a fair level of fitness for the job and is fairly qualified but a little less than person 1.
Person 1 is the more logical person for the job as they are more qualified, this is not racism as the most qualified SHOULD get the job, not because of skin color. But then the what would be classed as the "minority" would get the job to add cultural diversity to the work place. Because there are too many white caucasion police officers. Now THAT IS racism. Who would you rather have watching your back as you patrol? Person 1 or person 2. Think about that one.
On the police page I read they said they wanted MORE women and ethnic minoritys on the force. Um why? Why do you need them? Their skin color and vigana doesnt give them magic powers, they do the job the same as anyone else. So why do we NEED them, they have some special comodoty? No there is no difference, they should be encouraging everyone to join. Its a rewarding job that anyone should be entitled to do.
Sometimes I think this whole equal opertunities thing goes a bit too far in which the rasicm and sexism is reversed.
A while ago when the police force had hight requirements the womens minimum height limit was lower than the males hight limit. Why? So a say the lowest womens height is 5foot2 and the males was 5foot4. That in itself is sexism. But why isnt it seen as that? Its like ooo women can join the force good for them. Yer fine it is but its not good for all the guys who are 5foot4 who could get in the force if they had a fadge, but cant because they have a penis.
Rather than always lowering the bar to be politically correct why not keep it the same and if they can do the job fine theyre in? This probably applys for allot of places other than the police
Please correct me if I have been misled anywhere but this is what I have observed from researching the career I would like to have in the future. If I get in, because I am a white male so that lowers my chances.
