A high-level human resources employee at the City of Markham has been placed on leave after she said and displayed the N-word while giving a guest lecture to students at George Brown College. My commentary: Now, you are a high-level human resources employee at the City of Markham. Ok. So, you are dealing with racist incidents, and are involved in that world where is your job being in Human Resources to pay attention to every word you say. Maybe she is a radical libertarian in using words, fine. Ok. So, regardless, of how you think at home that one should use the "N-word" while trying to make an academic point, you should know by now, that this will not play well with any student that will pull off their phone and you will end up a star. So, did she value her work? Did she practice any of this material the night before? Of course, she has not, or maybe she is a racist herself some radical left-wingers will say, but not enough proof of that. If her history surfaces, sure. So this employee ended up a star now. How can you not respect your work? You deserve your faith, then. I will not name her, the CBC is doing that alongside her picture, you can go there and get your fix, I promote the CBC enough as it is. What are your thoughts on this?
This morning, while I was reading the news, I came across a trending article. From California 😄 I placed this article in Federal Politics because Universities, if I am not mistaken in the US do get help from the federal government. Hope that gives it legitimacy. University department removes the word 'field' over 'racist connotations' References including "field work" and "going into the field" may have connotations for descendants of slavery and immigrant workers "that are not benign", the school of social work at the University of Southern California wrote in a letter to staff and students. Explaining the decision, it said: "We have decided to remove the term 'field' from our curriculum and practice and replace it with 'practicum'. "This change supports anti-racist social work practice by replacing language that would be considered anti-Black or anti-immigrant in favour of inclusive language. "Language can be powerful, and phrases such as 'going into the field' or 'field work' maybe have connotations for descendants of slavery and immigrant workers that are not benign." The letter was addressed to staff and students from the "Practicum Education Department", which until recently was called the Field Education Department. It continued: "Our goal is not just to change language but to honour and acknowledge inclusion and reject white supremacy, anti-immigrant and anti-blackness ideologies. "We know changing terminology can be challenging, and a complete transition will take some time." "Staff and stakeholders have raised concerns about the use of the term 'field worker' and its implications for descendants of Black and Brown individuals," it said in a memo. "While the widespread use of this term is not intended to be harmful, we cannot ignore the impact its use has on our employees," the memo reads. "Establishing shared language is essential to our collective progress." ---> I will start a poll, do you agree with the decision to remove the word "field" due to "racist connotations"?
