I can already see that the material in my head for this subject is too long for one post. This one will be an introduction, the 2nd will be about competence, the 3rd one about caring, and the last a conclusion.
The subject is labor, low-level and manual labor, using the example of hotels, because that's what where I run into this. It's where these thoughts came from. I'm not up for multi-colored bar graphs or spreadsheets here with data from the significant number of types of non-White people in the American labor force. I could use the divide between 3rd-world vs. white, but my focus is mostly on black vs. white employees here. Suffice it to say that the 3rd world, as in Hispanics for the most part, in our big immigrant and immigrant-derived work force lie in the middle.
Here's the deal: I try to get along. Black people have been living in America longer than my ancestors have, and, yes, people need work. I stay in hotels quite often on the road, and I can tell right away which ones are black managed. I can tell whether things are going to work pretty well or not.
This post is not about the housekeeping help. They are of all persuasions, 99.something% female, though it's rare to see any young white girls. I respect this labor, mind you, and I sure wouldn't want to do that work for years on end.* However, it's not something that requires much thinking or customer service really. Competence does matter, but I'm not exactly mister Spic & Span as far as noticing things amiss. This is about the proper running of a hotel.
Black service employees can be great to deal with in many of the aspects of the job that involve interaction. They are gregarious. They can be hilarious. I can see that they enjoy talking to customers and it sure looks like they enjoy being there. Some are pretty hardworking. I just talked to a guy driving us that has 2 other jobs and was just doing this deal to help a friend.
However, this gregariousness often comes at the expense of the other aspects of the job. Some of the white people at the front desk perhaps realize that they have a mess of work to do in the back (often, in fact, there is no one in the front these days, we've noted.) The management part of the job requires some thinking. It's not always fun and games with the customers. You can't just throw free stuff or discounts to everyone either. That many of the black people in these position lean toward, and spend the most time on, the gregarious interaction side of things is due to either/both that they don't really have the competence to do the other work right or/and they just don't understand or care that the hotel has got to stay the hell in business too.
I think of the scene (couldn't find it on YT, or it'd be here) on The Office in which Michael Scott notices that every one is so uptight and not relaxed, mon, after he comes back from Jamaica. Why can't we all be like those relaxed black folk down in the islands? Everything was nice down there on vacation, right? Well, of course, it's because there are competent white people that have created what they've got down there for tourism. They set all of it up. It can keep running with the native labor, but it can't keep running forever.
As Steve Sailer shows us almost daily in his posts on NY Times articles (usually), our elites and our "good whites" are trying to tell us that, dammit, all fields of employment should have equal, excuse me, equitable** numbers of people of whatever races. That is, unless they are already there in overwhelming numbers, such as in the NBA, and then, well that's the best diversity you can get. There are going to be problems. Do these people see this coming and not care?
At some point, without the competence and caring of White people, things trend, if you will, toward a 3rd-world environment. It is happening slowly now. Maybe it's too slow for some of us to notice. It can accelerate.
* BTW, I've noticed that the housekeepers don't keep up with the soap operas so much as they work these days. I hope that wasn't a management requirement. Maybe the TV's are so damn complicated (haha, to me!) that the housekeepers don't bother. More likely they get on phone calls on speaker phone with family and that sort of thing.
From commenter Alarmist, I'm thinking of the Mexicans here, we need to put up another "Telenovelas are Hell" video soon.
** iSteve has fun with that term "equity", as in "yes, this move will lower the equity in our housing."
