In a nutshell "hundreds of black and asian police officers are preparing to launch discrimination cases against their own forces, encouraged by the example of Tarique Ghaffur. the Scotland Yard Assistant Commisioner" (Sunday Telegraph Page 2. Sorry no link"). Ironic that this high ranking officer has been discriminated against in reaching the rank of Assistant Commisioner. Ironic that no white officers seem to be launching any discrimination claims or would that be construed as racism on their part? Why is that? This isnt a rant, racist or otherwise, but why is it that the officers who always seem to complain that they are being hard done by are nearly always black, asian, gay and lesbian (unless its the journos stirring)? Surely white officers are passed over for promotion, feel equally discriminated against, but get on with the task in hand.
