Life's Ironies


Today I was in a mandatory Diversity Seminar to increase professional understanding of the situation of increasing diversity in the workplace blah blah blah... just pretty much the general "don't murder people of other races" stuff that businesses/the workplace is required to give. As part of the seminar (which was 6 hours long, by the way), there were several panels of diverse students and people from the community who discussed and answered questions based on their experiences as members of a minority race. There were several different panels of people that came in and shared their experiences at different times during the day.

After about an hour or two of this, I began to notice something...

THE PANELS WERE SEGREGATED BY RACE.

There was one panel that was all-black, there was a panel of Spanish-speaking/Latinos, etc etc... none of the different panels were mixed together!

Call me a dick, but I found it sort of ironically hilarious that these groups of people were segregated by RACE during a DIVERSITY seminar.

No, you have an excellent point. The thing is they are trying to conditions "white" people to other races. Baby steps.
