Harriet Harman is racist and sexist

From the BBC:

Harriet Harman has defended plans to make it legal for firms to discriminate in favour of female and ethnic minorities job candidates.
The equalities minister said firms should be able to choose a woman over a man of equal ability if they want to.

Discrimination against someone because they are female or black is wrong. Discrimination against someone because they are male or white is also wrong, and for the same reason. I would have thought this would be obvious.

Perhaps Harman’s job title should be changed to Inequality Minister.

UPDATE: It appears that, sadly, I’m in agreement with the Daily Mail on this (via The Yorksher Gob). Oh well, c’est la vie.
