You know what’s really racist? Coddling students who display a poor understanding of what it takes to succeed in the workplace, such as showing up to an interview on time, and speaking correct English, not “Ebonics.”

Clemson University has allocated nearly $27,000 on diversity training materials for professors.
The taxpayer-funded school in South Carolina purchased the online training materials from an outside vendor, reports Campus Reform.
The training materials are a series of slides depicting scenarios with fictional characters.
One slide features a guy named Alejandro who plans a meeting between two groups. Each group contains foreign professors and students. One group shows up 15 minutes early. The second group shows up 10 minutes late.
A question-and-answer section then instructs Clemson’s professors that Alejandro would be insufficiently “inclusive” if he were to “politely ask the second group to apologize.” Alejandro would also be wrong to advise the straggling, late people who aren’t respecting everyone else’s time that “in our country, 9:00 a.m. means 9:00 a.m.”
The “inclusive” thing for Alejandro to do, the taxpayer-funded diversity materials instruct Clemson professors, is to “recognize cultural differences that may impact the meeting and adjust accordingly.” Alejandro must understand “that his cultural perspective regarding time is neither more nor less valid than any other.”….
Imperial thinking is to make the people as stupid as possible. Stupid people are easier to control. This is clearly brainwashing, and why isn’t the school staff arrested?
What Alejandro thinks doesn’t matter. If the early group is offended is what matters. Often that answer is yes. Dumb lesson example.
Bit of an, only non-profits are good, socialist view here. Old college rule of thumb on how long you wait for prof. to show for class before you leave. Presume that these instructors would argue that that’s different because student is paying for teacher whereas here neither group is paying for the other. The, time is not money, view. The great value of, Time is money, is that it applies to non-work time also. Socialism views all time as not money and thereby destroys your self-worth. Don’t riot for me, Venezuela.
