I am guessing you were robbed. Yes no am i close

Yup, that's what it means. The government his implemented what they call affirmative action, or black empowerment programmes. This basically means that if you have a black guy and a white guy with the same qualifications applying for a job, the black guy will get it. This is really enforced in government jobs where the job advertisement will actually say that this is an affirmative action position.

I could sort of understand the mentality behind this just after south Africa came out apartheid, but now we are probably the only country in the world that has laws that give jobs to the MAJORITY of the population. Programmes like this should only have run for maybe 5 to 10 years, not 20

Hence the joke "Affirmative shopping" (Your stuff being 'given' away)

That makes me glad that I'm not afraid to get my hands dirty; I've never had to deal with that particular problem, because a lot of the people who have similar skill sets all seem to think that the world should be handed to them on a plate.

It's not that they get turned down for the job; it's that they look at the job description (Oh, that job means I might have to actually do something) and never even apply.....

Doug, how many time's do I have to remind you that killing people only provides momentary satisfaction, and gets you talked about in really bad ways... (Where's that face palm emoji for frustration when you need it?!?!?) :ack2:
