DCI Armstrong's -- who is black -- chief tells him:
-- You're a good copper promoted way above his station by some affirmative-action bollocks. (...) I didn't want you to have this job, not because I'm a racist, but because I didn't think you were up to it. (...) But you got it. You won. And now you're a leader. You lead a team.
The Fades, TV series


I know "station" means "one's social rank or position". But is this exactly what it means in the OP too? Thanks.
