We Just Can’t Handle Diversity | Harvard Business Review
In the calibrations, the most common criteria for moving candidates from the middle to either the “yes” or the “no” pile were communication skills (referred to as “polish”), analysis of a sample business case, the math used to support that analysis, and cultural fit. But the interviewers weighed and judged those criteria differently depending on the race, ethnicity, or gender of the candidates. For example, black and Hispanic men were often seen as lacking polish and moved to the reject pile, even when they were strong in other areas, whereas white men who lacked polish were deemed coachable and kept in the running. A similar pattern emerged among men who appeared shy, nervous, or understated: Nonwhites were rejected for being unassertive, but in whites, modesty was seen as a virtue. Among candidates who made minor mistakes in math, women were rejected for not having the right skills, and men were given a pass—interviewers assumed they were having an “off” day.

As a lapsed Arsenal fan I had a good chuckle at that, but then if even Arsene can be magnanimous about the big idiot I guess I can too.

Not really.

LOL.

a drunk person cannot give consent.

i don't know where to start in terms of the lack of a fair
trial.

Fuck Chesterfield for giving him a job (even before
he was 'cleared').

Malky Mackay, the original inspiration for this thread, to be "part of our equality and diversity strategy and be a real advocate for the role," says the SFA, who have just hired him to be their performance director.

Outrage after Brazil football team signs goalkeeper convicted of killing girlfriend

Bruno – as he is best known in Brazil – has served less than a third of the 22-year sentence handed down by a lower court for ordering the 2010 killing of his former partner and the mother of his child.

Samudio went missing after she sued the footballer for child support in a high-profile case that threatened a mooted big-money move to Milan.

Bruno confessed to his involvement in the crime. The court heard how he conspired with friends who tortured and strangled the model, then disposed of the body by feeding it to the footballer’s rottweilers.
