More race-based lunacy, this time from across the pond:
A black police bodyguard who protected the Duchess of Cornwall has won $70,000 compensation after suing Scotland Yard for "over-promoting" him because of political correctness. Sgt Leslie Turner -- the first black personal protection officer to guard the royal family -- will receive the "racial discrimination" payout after reaching an out-of-court settlement with London's Metropolitan Police.
His representatives argued he landed the prestigious job as Camilla's bodyguard only because he was black. It was claimed that as a result of being over-promoted and not receiving proper training and support, Sgt Turner made mistakes which led to him being re-assigned. (My emphasis.)
I immediately thought of what Kim Swygert noted: Anyone want to take bets on when we see the first lawsuit filed by a US student who flunked out of college because of being admitted (at least partially) on race -- that they were, in essence, "over-promoted" which led them to "certain failure"?
I'd say it's the next logical step in race-based advocate philosophy -- except that there's nothing logical about it.
