This is some pretty racist stuff. But not surprising when Republicans allowed us to lose the culture war.

1. You’re not getting promoted
2. Here’s a little bribe so you hopefully complain less about it.

But that is not racist or sexist.

We had our union rep try to put into our contract that preference would be given to the hiring, retention, placement and seniority of teachers of color.

Luckily it did not pass. I told him that the amendment was racist. And if the school wanted a lawsuit....someone would bring it if they were passed over on tenure because of color.

He also heard from a lot of others. It died in committee.

First of all - I HATE teachers unions. That being stated - That "rep" would have been voted out immediately.

Good and bad parts of all of it.

But when it comes to the down and dirty.....they dont always support what is right. glad I am out.

I did join a national teacher association that protects teachers from unfounded charges and lawsuits more than worrying about politics.

Here in Ca they tried this crap already and it was called “Affirmative Action”. It failed miserably and even Californians said enough

White people apparently support this. Or else it wouldn’t keep happening everywhere.

The problem is this attempted transposition of behaviors that trend towards professional or unprofessional or trend toward productive or unproductive, into inherently black or white.

It's that conflation of black and blackNESS, or white and whiteNESS, going on everywhere.

If you have a criticism of NBA standards, cite the standard and explain the problem, don't handwave it as 'forcing them to be less black.'

Black isn't a behavior, it's an irrelevant trait.

Your stance is like asserting that women have a right to 'act blonde.' Or that 'short person rage' is a culture.

Could you imagine if a major company had training as follows...

What it means to be black is to be a murderer, a rapist, a drug dealer, a thief, a home invader, a swindler.

You need to be less black

Omg that company would be out of business overnight.

Oh hell, the military has had that for years. I personally saw several members from Enlisted to Officers (white) passed over for promotion by black members who, quite honestly (in an least some of the cases) had no business whatsoever being promoted - but were.

I suppose that in some instances I guess it didn't hurt morale that much. However, in other instances, those being "promoted" over more highly qualified personnel may have indeed, put soldiers lives at risk.
