NOT TO RUN
There’s a lot of guff being emitted by the nice PC folks. Ya gotta comply—you know, go along with what they dictate as ‘legal’. Otherwise you are a racist, sexist, atheist swine or worse.
I’m a pragmatic idealist, a theoretician-dreamer. So? This came in minutes ago—
HOW TO STRAIGHTEN UP
The people who administer the test say that with “active efforts” a person with subconscious bias can act in a non-prejudiced fashion. That’s probably a good idea if you are a judge or if you are working in human resources. But do you need to spend your whole life actively watching out for your subconscious?
tells us not to be judgemental is—essentially—either a dupe, a fool, or out for control of your wallet. (Any takers?)
The quote is from a New Zealand Herald article titled “It’s black and white-simple test tells if you’re a racist” … for link: CLICK HERE.
YOU’D BE A FOOL
(in many places a suicidal fool) not to rely on your own judgement.
Your own judgement is to a large degree (nooooo~!)* based on your experiences and what you’ve been told. You can modify it any time.
A couple of simple rules that’ve always served me well (and in some insalubrious places too)—
JUDGE FOR YOURSELF
JUDGE BY WHAT THEY DO, NOT WHAT THEY CLAIM
IF IN DOUBT—GET OUT
There’s more but the above serves as intro: Anyone telling you not to use your own judgement is a threat.
Be wary, often your judgement is all that stands between you and something nasty. Use it.
