    Lover all 3 of these. My father was in the military(army) for 28 years but I was never brought up around racism. I personaly have lost people I thought was friends becuz I later found out they was racist to a extent. Meaning they weren’t all “white power”, but they had no problem with using racial slurs. In my book you just don’t do it. I won’t ever use racial slurs or tell racial jokes becuznits all bad. And I’m saying this as white guilt becuz I didn’t do anything racist and I refuse to be held or accountable for actions I didn’t not do. To say or act like that is not who I am. My actions speak louder then any word anyone can say. Not sure if this is sounding right but it’s how I am. Treat people that way you want to be treated is how I live my life.

    Some of the rascism is just as insidious though and it comes in the form of affirmative action, which was discussed in the first podcast. It can also have a backfire effect. I’ve seen someone put into a position that they weren’t qualified for because the organization wanted to show more “diversity” and wanted a minority person in that position and then they colossally failed. This person was competent at their previous job, so basically their career was ruined due to someone promoting them to a position where they weren’t qualified at all just to try and get some “diversity” out there.

    That’s pretty f’d up. I bet that person probably didn’t have a choice either. Probably would have cotton fired. I’ve heard of that before…:-(
