I literally shook my head in disdain as I wrote this article. What on earth……Who comes up with the new rules of what is racist and what isn’t? Whoever it is, I think they have their head screwed on crooked because they are definitely missing a few screws.
According to “diversity training materials” that are now in the hands of Clemson University employees, which cost nearly $27k, informs them that it is now racist to expect people from other cultures to be on time……let that sink in.
Their reasoning in this? They explained it as saying that you cannot chastise a group for being late to class, or work, because you must “recognize cultural differences that may impact the meeting and adjust accordingly.”
Er. NO. That is not how businesses, nor schools, run. Sorry.
The Daily Caller reports:
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.”
I guarantee that if you go to another country, you will be expected to immerse yourself in THEIR culture, because they absolutely will not bend their agenda to meet your culturally different needs. WAKE UP!
