She was the "brain" behind insisting that terrorist attacks be referred to as “man-caused disasters.” Well, she's at it again.
She has issued a list of phrases/statements which are to be henceforth considered "microaggressions". What is a "microaggression"? Simply, it is something that conveys "unintended discrimination". Accordingly, even if you do not think of yourself as racist, you really are - and "microaggressions" prove it.
This California University now even has a group focused on the subject, "Diversity In The Classroom".
Here are but a very few "gems" from the list. If a person does or says anything from the list, the person is exhibiting discriminatory/racist deeply held - or even overt - beliefs:
A person asking an Asian American or Latino American to teach them words in their native language.
Statement: “There is only one race, the human race.”
Statement: “America is a melting pot.”
Statement: “I believe the most qualified person should get the job.”
Statement: “Gender plays no part in who we hire.”
Statement: “America is the land of opportunity.”
This is political correctness at its worst. Such teaching/preaching only serves to drive peoples apart - not bring them together.
A furthering of Napolitano's "message" serves to engender a fear in students and teachers alike that ANYTHING they say could be offensive. No wonder so many of the youth today spend their time "texting" vs. human interaction.
