I had to take another hour long lecture today on how white men are bad.
All the pictures of happy people are literally non-white. Want to know how they show white men?
If you're in an interview with somebody (who is not white), and you ask them about their education, you've committed an offense. If you "challenge" the credentials or experience of a minority you are being racist.
If I have to sit through one more lecture about "intersectionality" I'm going to lose my fucking shit.

Guessing a career change isn’t practical at the moment.
-- Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past me I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. --

In all my employers “ethics” training videos, all the white males are always portrayed as homophobic, transphobic, disgruntled jerks. All the minorities and especially minority females are always the noble ones, never the bad guy.
It’s really discouraging.

Originally posted by Tn226: What continues to baffle me is the number of whites fostering this madness.
I firmly believe it is mainly young, white females supporting the madness with young white males in tow hoping that joining the females will somehow make their panties drop. Newsflash there Buster, those girls aren't interested in white dick!

I suspect it is fear driving this in the woke companies. From the CEO on down to the lowest HR operative, they fear the consequences of doing anything but yielding to the stupidity and feel going woke is the least-risky path.
And, if they don't actually see any consequences from this intellectual surrender (i.e turnover from talented staff leaving, customers migrating to support sane establishments) then those cravens' calculations turn out correct and they lose nothing from pandering to the idiocy.
So my thoughts go out to people who have to be exposed to this dreck and aren't in a position to push back hard, and/or to leave. Keep in mind that 10,000 idiots chanting something in unison doesn't make it true. In fact, truth doesn't need chanting buffoons at all.

The problem with the surge of “wokeness” is there is no downside to it. If they lose their ass because it pisses their customer base off, the government will just bail them out with stimulus money. All those trillions of dollars had so very little to do with economic recovery, and everything to do with creating a slush fund.
Over the next few years, expect to see “COVID” money used to fund things that will put Solendra to shame.
