No1Marauder apparently takes the position here that all workers should be
assessed as individuals with no attempt (such as by collecting statistics)
being made to classify them according to ethnicity/race/nationality etc.
No1Marauder seems to reject the notion of making any generalizations
based on classifying workers according to ethnicity/race/nationality etc.
Treat everyone as an individual, never as a member of a larger group.
That sounds like arguments used by right-wing Americans opposing affirmative action.
They have argued, for instance, that a black student who's applying for
admission to a university should be considered only as an individual.
No attempt should be made to collect statistics showing that black students
on average have lower test scores and come from lower income families than
white students. And even if such statistics have been collected, they
should be completely ignored because it's wrong to consider a student as
part of a group rather than as just an individual. No generalization should
be made about the lower test scores or lower family incomes of black students.
And, of course, no 'affirmative action' aid should be given to the black student.
So what No1Marauder wrote seems not inconsistent with these arguments
against affirmative action. If I recall correctly, however, No1Marauder has
supported affirmative action and criticized right-wing Americans who oppose it.
So perhaps No1Marauder does take groups' average performances into account
when it suits his political opinions.
