Clemson Univ. teaches expecting promptness is racist

Cultural divide expands even further; now extends to the clock

Diversity training scores another goose egg. Craig Bannister writing for cnsnews exposes the latest leftward lunacy coming out of what was previously referred to as higher education.

Clemson University’s “diversity education and training” instructs the university’s employees that every “cultural perspective regarding time” is equally valid, so it’s wrong to expect people to be prompt.

The university is spending nearly $27,000 on this program for its faculty members and the school’s President James P. Clements has pledged that ‘all employees will participate in the diversity plan in order to create a more inclusive environment on campus.

As an example, in one slide presentation, employees are taught that tardiness is acceptable because the concept of time is culturally relative. Thus, every culture’s perception of the actual time must be respected — since one “cultural perspective regarding time is neither more nor less valid than any other.”

Got that?  Chronic lateness  is no longer rude or disqualifying, but needs to be respected.

The presentation gives the example of “Alejandro,” who called a 9:00 a.m. meeting, and instructs that he should not rebuke a group of foreign professors and students who show up late: “Time may be considered precise or fluid depending on the culture.” The slide tutors that Alejandro shouldn’t impose his definition of time on others since doing so is not only disrespectful, but racist.

Bannister’s source is Campus Reform.

This past week SRAZ postedSkewed news & rethinking the desirability of a college education,” describing a professor at Fresno State University who took to twitter to opine, “To save American democracy, Trump must hang. The sooner and the higher, the better.” It melds with the Clemson madness. Our once revered institutions of higher learning have become liberal propaganda machines, dispensing outrageousness and putting the finishing touches on the 12 previous years of brainwashing by members of the leftwing teacher’s unions. Open Secrets reveals the donations made by the National Education Association (NEA) and the American Federation of Teachers (AFT), two of the largest lobbying groups in the country.

The deception grows as Clemson’s President James P. Clements sums his views up with these words on the university’s website: 

“It is important, as an institution of higher learning, to celebrate our diversity and help others see the importance of creating an environment of inclusive excellence.”

We should be celebrating unity — which strengthens, rather than separates us. That’s what America has represented to generations of legal immigrants who gratefully assimilated into Americans, making our heritage their own as they transitioned to speaking English,  embraced our traditions and honored the freedoms enshrined in our Constitution. It was known as Americanization.

In a paean to diversity, the inmates with multiple degrees are now overseeing an increasingly Balkanized asylum. President Clements’ annual base salary is $801,330.  No doubt he’s worth every cent.

    We’re repeatedly told that teachers need another pay raise. Yet they contribute $ millions to far left unions like the NEA and NFT. They also contribute to the state unions such as the Arizona Education Association. It’s a rarity for any of those $ millions to go to Republican candidates.

    I’ll vote for a pay increase when the teachers stop propagandizing our children. Our middle school daughter told us that her teacher showed the class many of Obama’s televised speeches, taking time from actual teaching and filling the kids with a liberal skew. When we complained to the principal we were told the teacher’s actions were valid since it was the President of the United States. Obviously, she no longer attends that school We found excellent charter school where she is learning not being indoctrinated.

    Instead of enlarging upon politically correct foolishness, Clemson U should be ashamed of its actions. That the school’s president is so overpaid speaks to the liberal leanings of the state Board of Regents. We’ve go that going on with Michael Crow at ASU.

    The Left will not be happy until they have destroyed all social graces and ethical morality.

  4. Mohave Mike says:

    Now the undereducated “snowflake” students at Notre Dame are protesting that they feel “less safe” because Vice President Mike Pence has been invited as the university’s commencement speaker.

    What a bunch of sorry assed pukes.

    This is all part of the plan to destroy the American way of life.
    It’s not new—–it’s now just way out in the wide open.

    The public school system was not developed to make a brighter future for American children.

    And notice how that word “fluid” keeps popping up.
    First, it was used in regard to gender.
    Now it is being used in regard to time.

    Meanwhile, Obama is floating around the French Polynesian islands on a 300 Million dollar super yacht being entertained and adored by Tom Hanks and his very Communist wife; Bruce Springsteen and his lady, and Oprah (no word on the identity of her +1).
    He’s staying way off shore for a reason. Make no mistake.

      Your point about the word “fluid,” is well taken. There are no absolutes. As good and evil are merely in the eye of the beholder our downward spiral will be irretractable.

    Off topic, but——-

    Finally, breitbart writes about Sheriff Joe and that Kangaroo court.

    Very interesting read:

    God Bless Sheriff Joe and Miss Ava.

    And may God kick Trump and Sessions in the seat of their trousers if they don’t get on this right now.

      Election night I went to bed with a feeling of “hopelessness” and awoke with the joy of ‘hopeful’. I’m still hopeful, as you are, but I can’t shake that cloud of doubt.
