You know … I always have a slight problem with all attempts that want to enable an understanding of the Black community. Because if you single out the Blacks, and be it in order to get more understanding for them, isn’t that already a pretty racist thing to do?
That reminds me on an old friend of ours, technical engineer who was sent from the BMW plant in Germany to the plant in Alabama, USA. And before he even was allowed to start working there he was forced to absolve a seminar that was supposed to teach him about the Black workers and how to deal with them. 😮
Fuuk the wot?
Imagine, him a fairly intelligent academic, coming from pretty multicultural Germany, having no racial feelings at all, and then having to learn that Blacks in the USA are to be treated like precious and savage zoo animals. 😦
That being said, his fascination with America dwindled pretty quickly and he was very happy when he could transfer back to his old office.
