Re: because they had the misfortune of being born both white and male

without them, non-white non-males can't get there foot in the door

Most of my team are non-white and a lot are non-male, and they'd be extremely offended by your view. I recruit based on talent alone, because I control that bit. I promote based on the companies batsht crazy metrics, which makes it all but impossible to promote a white guy, even if he is the best dev in the team.

Positive discrimination is just discrimination. At best it ensures some black people get to work for some white racists, who otherwise wouldn't hire them. I just don't see that as a good thing..... I don't want to work for a racist and I'd rather find out before I take the job than after.
