    Funny thing is the people who tell me how tulip they are to work for are white.

    You like othering people don't you.

    Actually I thought it was a nice way to spread a message and a good way to show solidarity with an equality agenda, a cause I agree with. The reply from BLM was its not enough, most people would consider that rude and counterproductive.

    On a separate issue "whataboutery" I think they call it, I agree that the Royal mail don't have a great record as an employer but many other organisations in the same area suffer similarly. In fact anyone in home delivery tend to treat their staff poorly. luckily there are laws for that!


    othering - view or treat (a person or group of people) as intrinsically different from and alien to oneself.

    "a critique of the ways in which the elderly are othered by society"
    - yep I had to look it up.

    No I expect others to behave to the same standards I aspire to i.e. lawful behaviour, equality, truth and proof. BLM don't, evidence available if you haven't followed their lies, that is hardly my fault or a prejudice.

    The black ones look pretty smart although they are supposed to be easy to spot functionally. I thought painting them gold to honour olympic champions was great.

    Maybe we should paint them to reflect constituency MP, a nice array of reds and blues and a few yellow. Reflect our democratic harmony.

    don't bring politics into it. The use of the postbox colour has been vey effective without politics.

    Or consider this egregious denial of justice:
    Horizon (IT system) - Wikipedia
    Bankruptcy, prosecution and disrupted livelihoods - Postmasters tell their story
    https://www.private-eye.co.uk/pictur...n-the-post.pdf

    They have their own justice system and courts. People went to prison because it was impossible (said Fujitsu and the Post Office) for the computer system to be wrong.
    Down with racism. Long live miscegenation!

    Why is pink in the list? Surely it's a shade of red or does it have its own place on the spectrum?
