The Values Statement – Part III

values statement “Look,” I continued, “In the 1900s, how much social capital did the Negro have in the United States?” Those in the room mostly just shook their heads, but a few vocalized, “None, really.” “How much political capital would they have had back then?” Same answer. “And you know how much financial capital the Negro had in the early 1900s, and....

Facing the Possibility of Going Over A Cultural Cliff

CliffDwellings200095 It couldn’t have been lightning. Election of a biracial POTUS struck twice in the same place. Exuberant cries of a “Post-Racial America” rise from the streets and descend from the airwaves. The demise of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” and legalized gay marriage promise a Post-Sexual Preference America.  Women in combat positions spurred one American soldier’s "Post-Gender" prediction....

Moving Toward What’s Next, or To What Was?

CPUNIVBRD02A goal of global resolution of social differences is an enormous societal project. Yet, Twentieth Century diversiphiles bravely set out to build corporate programs holding out the promise of training away crippling discomfort with the new wave of ‘cultural differences’ interposed by law. Those differences have been managed with a vengeance from C-Suite to shining C-Suite. Yet,....

Diversiphobia is indicated by the primitive use of differences as a proxy for culture, a countervailing force....
