Free people can segregate.
The wish not to believe can influence as strongly as the wish to believe.

Who can escape their own cognitive biases?

Segregation is not freedom the way the Democrats do it.

Add ‘The Eyes of Texas’ to the list

Nearly 180 faculty calling for plaque with lyrics to ‘The Eyes of Texas’ to be removed ‘because it originated at a minstrel show’

Libraries are now racist for various reasons, including (but not limited to) the Dewey Decimal System.

So how many different sections does say, French have in Asian libraries? More than one?

Good question.

Since diversity ought to be universal, I wonder how many different Lithuanian, Welsh, and Icelandic sections are in the Kampala, Ouagadougou, and Khartoum libraries combined. And what alternative to the Dewey Decimal System are they using?

Being a Christian and they throw in a good dose of TDS

Quote
The election of Donald Trump intensified certain strains of Christian nationalism. He fanned fears of pluralism with Islamophobic and anti-immigrant rhetoric. He often invoked Christianity, albeit in terms that were largely about ethnic identity rather than faith. “The greatest ethnic dog whistle the right has ever come up with is ‘Christian,’ because it means ‘people like us,’ it means white,” Samuel Perry, a sociologist at the University of Oklahoma and co-author of “Taking America Back For God,” told me.

It may be a good thing that the Air Force cancelled the job offer they made me due to a funding freeze. It was a civilian job on an AF base, but I'm sure the idiocy would have reached into the office I would have joined, and I almost certainly woulodn't have survived the probationary period in a racist climate such as the DoD is creating.

White Vietnam vets, white POWs, Rambo, and Trump

Quote
Another potent channel of this emerging dynamic of white blamelessness was the Prisoner of War/Missing in Action movement, which also managed to transmute a cross-racial vets’ issue into a politics of white grievance…. “The whiteness of the Operation Homecoming vets, the most visible and distinguished former prisoners of war, made the POW/MIA movement a vehicle for white racial grievance,” Darda writes, “and the POW/MIA flag has been a common sight at white supremacist rallies ever since. When a 1985 Newsweek headline declared ‘We’re Still Prisoners of War,’ some readers, whether conscious of it or not, would have taken that ‘we’ to mean white America.”

First problem is the POW/MIA flag is also prominent at many post offices and military installations.

Beyond that though I find the thing idiotic. We have no living POWs. We do good finding skeletal remains of MIA. Why it is a political movement at all mystifies me. Not the racial aspect but I could buy the idea it was the product of a generation trying to be noticed and affirmed. I guess they won't call my old ass up but if I am ever MIA don't put up a stupid flag for me, the prospect is baked into the deal when you sign up. The sentiment behind the flag leads to things like pulling out of Somalia after getting a bloody nose instead of the proper response of razing everything to be remembered for centuries and then promptly leaving.

I'm so contrarian that I didn't respond to the thread.

If I'd freaked out, like some of the folks, I could be sitting at home on unemployment-plus, which would pretty much equal an assistant manager's pay rate. And is more than our starting pay rate.
 
They've been paying a bonus about once a quarter, which is about equal to a week's worth of the "plus."
 
Probably too late to freak out. I missed 10 days due to having something that tested negative (but had 101-102 fever for most of it), and one day since then. I had a week and a half of vacation go bye-bye, because it is use it or lose it, and we couldn't get anyone to cover. Some guys lost a lot more.

If it's use it or lose it, you take it whether anyone is there to cover or not.  If management doesn't hire enough people that's their problem not yours.  Otherwise they have an incentive to understaff just so they can steal your vacation. (as if they don't have enough incentive already)

Nice if.

They take your vacation and you get to hope they might like your acquiescence so much they reward it.

With that sort of arrangement they have maximum incentive to give you the shaft while stringing you along with a promotion that never happens.
