Expecting People of Color to be on Time is Racist, Duke Medical School Says

I guess I sort of agree with this?

I mean, if I heard someone say “we expect you black people to be on time,” I’d be like “wow, that’s pretty racist. They’re black.”

New York Post:

Duke Medical School claims it is “white supremacy culture” to expect people of color to be on time in a strategic plan for creating an “anti-racist workforce.”

The medical school said its goal is to “catalyze anti-racist practice through education” in a 2021 plan titled “Dismantling Racism and Advancing Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in the School of Medicine.” The guide — praised by the school’s dean — called out what it deemed “white supremacy culture,” with its purported nitpicking about being on time, dress code, speech and work style. It also contains a series of negative terminology vis-à-vis white culture.

White supremacy culture is the idea (ideology) that White people and the ideas, thoughts, beliefs, and actions of white people are superior to People of Color and their ideas, thoughts, beliefs and actions,” the document stated.

The document stated that America is rigged for the interests of white people, who get privileges, i.e., the “unquestioned and unearned set of advantages, entitlements, benefits and choices bestowed on people solely because they are White.”

“CRT scholars note that the social construction of race and racism is a regular component of American society; it is embedded in structures such as law, culture, and economics, which supports the interests of White people,” the guide stated in its definition of critical race theory.

It went on to claim that white supremacy culture is “power hoarding” to the disadvantage of non-whites.

“In the workplace, white supremacy culture explicitly and implicitly privileges whiteness and discriminates against non-Western and non-white professionalism standards related to dress code, speech, work style, and timeliness,” the document said. “Some identifiable characteristics of this culture includes perfectionism, belief that there’s only one right way, power hoarding, individualism, sense of urgency and defensiveness.”

The dean, Dr. Mary E. Klotman, praised the guide for reflecting the medical school’s “goals, priorities and strategies.”

Black people are in fact so different from whites that I think they should be allowed to live apart from whites.

Maybe even on a completely different continent.

If we gave them a continent of their own, free of racism, they would certainly thrive.
