balko just said it all.
100% agree. If you arent liked in the workplace, no one there is going to help you.
Usually even for legitimate reasons.

Also the fact that they're comparing a genre of merchandise to a specific brand. In the county I grew up in there's 1 McDonald's but like 2 or 3 gun shops and a pawn shop that carries guns. Possibly more, but not that I'm aware of. But when you compare gun stores vs. fast food as a whole. . . and then against restaurants as a whole. . . and then against any establishment that serves food in general. . .
Replying to myself because I'm retarded and should check the ATF website. The 56k number is for FFL01 holders (your typical storefront freedom dealer). Surprisingly a fair number from everytown.
Add in people who make and sell explosives/destructive devices and antique collectors and whatnot, and the amount goes above 100k. Point still stands that the comparison is between a number of employees and number of stores.

Judging by that it's a video of her saying something, because she's a self entitled blond talking head...
Also she's totally put a couple of snowflake emojis next to Millennials because I'm pretty sure there is literally nothing else in her vocab for political discourse

Social Services ARE filled with left-wingers.
The courses (both uni and technical) attract that innocent, early mentality of "I want to help people". The problem is once you get into an actual job, you suddenly find yourself in an echo-chamber of left-wingers who witness the dregs of humanity on a daily basis.
Now when it comes to blacks, (Aborigines are our equivalent but its basically the same thing), every fault is explained away as either due to culture or a low socio-economic background. They generally live in government housing and receive government subsidies, welfare etc.
Whites on the other hand, most of the ones we keep an eye on are lower-middle class, that is to say, they own their own homes, have minimum wage jobs and are barely scraping by otherwise. Some take welfare, but its usually to pick up the slack, like taking job seekers allowance, or rent assistance to help pay off the mortage, or childcare assistance.
Left-wingers treat this difference as though whites are somehow better off simply because they're white. Where as blacks are stepped on by the rest of society, unable to get jobs due to their skin colour.
On top of that, a lot of youth workers and social workers are scared of blacks. Not because they may be violent, we're trained to deal with that and if something occurs, you hardly ever get blamed. But because the slightest offense could cause them to sue you. Its one of the reasons teachers sometimes don't report suspected abuse because if they're wrong, their life could very well be over, they get fired, Red Marked on future jobs, and can face legal action. That fear causes them to be uncertain of the things they've witnessed, they started to second guess themselves.
Now, all that political stuff aside, social workers can't actually DO much.
We can make reports.
Which somebody higher up reads then gets to decide whether on not to do something about it. Usually that decision goes something like this:
"Do I have enough evidence here to make a move without it reflecting badly on the department, in case we're wrong?" (AKA, is my own ass covered?)
"No." (AKA Yes. We have everything short of a full confession to physical/sexual abuse.)
"Continue to observe and build a rapport with the children in question." (AKA Keep an eye on them and hope one of the kids comes forward.)
As for gays, never had a gay client, but my guess is it'd be the exact same thing, teachers too afraid to report anything lest they be seen as homophobic and slanderous, and youth workers UNABLE to do anything without appropriate evidence. Appropriate evidence being a child begging for help, or if enough "unexplained injuries" stack up.
