"I try to remind people that quota's (sic) no matter how good the intent is, is (sic) communism"

If you have a company with a large enough workforce, and they are predominantly of one gender or race with no valid reason, then it indicates a racist environment. It simply is. Numerous studies have shown that racism exists in the recruiting process, intentional or otherwise.

Quotas are "equal rights". They force companies to resist bias.

Cue the down-votes. I didn't realize how many bigots actually followed El Reg until seeing the comments and votes here today. And we wonder why women receive so much flak from the IT community and stay away.
