This really has to be stopped!
#3 Dec 5, 2012
I almost -- just now, almost instinctively -- wrote *shrug* as the first word of my comment on this.
I don't understand what it will take and how clear it has to become to people that what you do in life is to *analyze the various factors* and reach a conclusion about *what is likely to help* and *what is not likely to help* in given situations.
I don't believe TELLING people to accept diversity is going to achieve anything. Won't change a whit. I could provide some nasty examples here about groups and various demographics who have learned nnnnothing about diversity or accepting others.
Know what makes people change their tune fast?
Making them pay money. Scaring them financially. Bankrupting them.
The choice lies with those who *really* want to put a stop to all this.(And mind you, you won't stop all of it. But you could create a climate where people work HARD to end this type of discrimination and DON'T fool with the concept that they'd better try their damnedest.)
I, like anyone else, lament that it's gotten this ugly. The difference is, I stare that ugliness in the face and I am *jam-packed* with energy for solutions that will actually work.
