Except that board members are supposed to be appointed based on their ability to do the job.

I'm not entirely sure what the "needs of minorities" are... What facilities on buses and trains do black or Asian people need, that white people don't?

Yeah because people of differing backgrounds and viewpoints could never make a public system better. Nah let the good ol boy network stay long as we don't offend the white people everything will be ok.

The part where he claims that mainstream Islam is compatible with Western liberal values.

You didn't answer his question.

I rather did you just need to be able to look through the dripping sarcasm. If you need me to spell it out in small words I can.

Viewpoints, yes... Skin colour, no.

He specifically made the board members' skin colour an issue. I couldn't care less what colour somebody's skin is, that doesn't define their ability or character. Evidently, it matters to him.

But this isn't really anything to do with him being a Muslim... It's just typical Labour party bullshit.

Save the condescension for someone else. I've known you long enough to know that you're not even half as smart as you think you are. He asked you a direct question and since you couldn't give him an example of a race-specific need that exists in the public transportation system, you decided to dodge the question and opt for sarcasm instead. There's no need to embarrassed about it, I've seen liberals do this a hundred times. It doesn't even surprise me anymore at this point.

Actually his main point was less than 1/5 were women the minorities was the final throwaway line in the statement. Having a monolithic viewpoint on a service committee is inherently bad as the more viewpoints and backgrounds you get the better able to bring up issues from said viewpoints and fix problems that 1 group might not even know exist.

Well, I partly agree with him on the part about women.

Get with the times, dude! Who would want to have a meritocracy, where people are hired based on their qualifications instead of their skin color or sex? I mean, come one. It's <the current year>! Identity politics are much more important.

Drinking Beverage

Ah of course... Justin hath spoken. It is indeed the current year.
