The fundamental error of the McPherson definition of "Institutional Racism"

Sir William Macpherson used the term as a description of "the collective failure of an organisation to provide an appropriate and professional service to people because of their colour, culture or ethnic origin", which "can be seen or detected in processes, attitudes, and behaviour, which amount to discrimination through unwitting prejudice, ignorance, thoughtlessness, and racist stereotyping, which disadvantages minority ethnic people."

I remember my days as a law student, when I was told by my  lecturer that you cannot injunct against someone being negligent or legally require them to be competent and mindful if they are not and do not have the capacity to do so.   You can however sue them for being negligent only after damage has been caused and causation established.  

In other words, you can only forbid someone from doing something specific and intentionally.

I can even remember my law lecturer saying that.  

Is it practicable to stop people from being rude to one another in a free and rational country?

Is it practicable or rational to force the police to be polite to suspected criminals on pain of losing their jobs?

Why are we privileging black suspected criminals over white suspected criminals?

Because the demented matriarchy says so, and its running dogs are too afraid to say anything else.  

The Death of Reason in "Liberal" England is nearly complete.
