Thanks for admitting the legal system doesn’t work.Protections are not always legal ones:Name me a group that was protected at work.Were they allowed in the military? Were they protected where they worked? Were they allowed to gather together, say in a bar, and not get harassed by police?Gays were segregated?All changes have winners and losers but certainly Blacks and gays appreciate the move away from segregation. Social security and medicare have been blessings to the old and the sick. Gov't agencies that cleaned up our environment, ensured better workplace safety, tested new drugs, etc., have made our lives better.Haha...well then, point us to those progressive communities, cities and states that improved as they’ve become more “progressive“?
I’m a White Jew and I was never protected because the company could always afford better lawyers.
ProgBots aren’t very knowledgeable when it comes to real life.
An old boy network (also known as old boys' network, old boys' club, or old boys' society) can refer to social and business connections among former pupils of male-only elite schools. The term originated from much of the British upper-class having attended certain public schools as boys, thus former pupils are "old boys".
This can apply to the network between the graduates of a single school regardless of their gender. It is also known as an old boys' society and is similar to an alumni association. It can also mean a network of social and business connections among the alumni of various prestigious schools. In popular language, old boy network or old boys' society has come to be used in reference to the preservation of social elites in general; such connections within the British Civil Service formed a primary theme in the British Broadcasting Corporation's satirical comedy series Yes Minister. The phrase "It's not what you know, it's who you know" is associated with this tradition.
