Why the Lion’s Diversity Training Wasn’t so Bad

The “Lion of the Blogosphere” (a bit of a grand name, I liked Half Sigma better) went to diversity training recently, and reports it wasn’t bad at all, and perhaps has some external benefits.

The trouble with this is that generalizing from this situation- diversity training at a high-level Manhattan firm of some kind- to all diversity training is wrong. Diversity training, and the presence of blacks in general, serves different purposes in different places.

At a high-level Manhattan or DC operation, blacks are there as decoration, and they know it. They don’t mind because they get paid well, and get to wear nice clothes and act like big managers or bureaucrats. They don’t cause trouble because it would not be tolerated- the white people who run and work at these places are the people who run things, period, and the blacks are their subordinates. This is the corporate HR version of the “black a block” program of Oak Park, Illinois that Steve Sailer talked about awhile ago.

At lower levels the blacks really are there to police whites. The lower you go, the more aggressive it becomes. The “training” would be longer, more pointed, audience participation would be demanded with appropriate answers and behavior.

What Lion sees as pretty harmless is not harmless if you are a lower-status white. However I think he may be reading things wrong at his level as well. He mentions a second, silent “trainer”. The most benign explanation is that the woman was in training and was sitting in to see a presentation done. I don’t think that was it though. Even at high levels, where everyone can be expected to understand it is just a formality, there could be some troublemaker who wants to mouth off, and having an additional person to jump in would squelch and intimidate the person quickly. I think white people instinctively fear two blacks more than one, because they understand the pack mentality of blacks and know that two are much more aggressive than one.

Another reason for a silent participant is that she was able to watch the audience much more closely than the speaker himself, looking for signs of agitation, boredom, anger, or lack of appropriate enthusiasm.  And somebody just sitting, not saying anything, watching, has tremendous intimidation value.

Black people everywhere are political police- either formally, in human resources and diversity, or informally in other positions they got from affirmative action. They can be spies- reporting bad behavior- or beat cops, calling it out or just discouraging it, standing on the corner twirling their nightsticks.

If you have to go to diversity training it will probably not be as benign as Lion’s. Smile, stay relaxed, and project a feeling of calm and happiness. You are being watched. At the same time you can watch them too though, and you can make any white participant who is a little too enthusiastic as a stooge. That will be useful information around the office.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.

    Great point Thrasymachus. When I was an appliance tech, there was a very competent old timer who liked to crack politically incorrect jokes of all stripes. He thought the Negro co-worker was his bestest friend ever, but that Negro reported him and got him fired for his jokes.

    • As I said long ago about street crime, ALL BLACKS MUST BE REGARDED AS DANGEROUS. You (probably) won’t be mugged in the workplace, but there is the danger of being reported, quite probably falsely if the Negro decides he doesn’t like you.

      I was thinking about this yesterday. The Negro has the image of being a sort of superman, strong, focused and aggressive. But this comes from the roided up examples you see on sports TV and the carefully selected examples in entertainment. The typical Negro is fat, foolish, childish, and generally slow.

      The reason blacks are dangerous is that they can go from appearing to be friendly and non-threatening to visciously violent almost instantaneously. White people, even those who are familiar with blacks, are inclined to let down their guard when blacks appear friendly, and don’t look dangerous.

      But you can NEVER do this. ALL blacks are dangerous ALL the time.
