Well I didn't know cricket was a thing in South Africa.



Just take away all the quotas and racial assistance programs and let the people fall into the positions where they are most productive I say.



Yeah, that's how you stop racism, by singling out one race and place it above others. Progress!



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

This is stupid. 'Merit' should be the only deciding factor.

Absolutely disgusting really. There's absolutely no reason to try and force racist player quotas in to sports. Ok, maybe a country with a black majority would like to see more black people in the team, but why aren't they there? Is it because black people don't like the sport? IIRC the South African football team is mostly black, so it's certainly a possibility that they just don't like sports such as cricket and rugby and would rather play football instead. Or perhaps it's because there isn't the necessary infrastructure to properly develop good players in predominantly black areas? Well then why not invest more money in to those areas rather than trying to bring in artificial advantages/disadvantages based purely on someones skin colour?

Just imagine if a country with a white majority like the US introduced new rules mandating that teams have to have a white majority.

In european football there was talks about something like this (although it was based on nationality rather than race so wasn't anywhere near as discriminatory) but that was quickly shut down and deemed illegal.

That still exists on a national club level though.

Limited amount of non-EU players
guaranteed amount of players from your own country
guaranteed amount of youth players
guaranteed amount of local players (= players that used to play for the club's youth team)

Those were examples based on laws set by some domestic leagues.

I was referring to the 6+5 rule idea. I don't think any of those are quite the same as that. Besides I think a big part of those kind of rules in domestic competition is to prevent the richest clubs just buying all the best players, throwing them in a team together and completely dominating.



In the US it is called "affirmative action"



Get this racism out of here and take it back to Stormfront you fucking hwite nazi fascist.



This is the dumbest thing.... Pick the best man for the job no matter their ethnicity, sexuality or gender. People are people, so stop discriminating against them (even in a positive way). Companies should not be pressured to diversify, that leads to them hiring potentially worse staff to simply increase the number of Women, Black people or LGBTQ members working for them.


People are people, it doesn't matter just hire the person who is most qualified, skilled and has the best attitude.
