I am so glad that pundit extraordinaire Steve Sailer reads the New York Times for me. I sure wouldn't read a word from them otherwise, after having seen hundreds of his excerpts and commentary. I've written on those pages admonishment that nobody on the other side of the huge political divide gives one damn about the common-sense reason and logic of Mr. Sailer's arguments. He's not writing for them though, I think... I sure hope, anyway!
No, but that doesn't mean there's no purpose besides entertainment for some of his posts on this stupidity in the NY Times and the rest of the Lyin' Press he peruses daily. A recent post of his, Uber Suspends Its Asian DEI Boss for Objecting to the "Karen" Ethnic Slur, is a great example. Firstly, this story is hilarious. There IS that entertainment factor, and Mr. Sailer has some especially great commentary there! I'm hoping some German literary man - maybe our Dieter Kief here - could come up with a long German word to best describe the feeling I get reading about the estrogen-fueled Shitshow of Diversity that is apparently an example of an average ho-hum day at the headquarters of Uber, Inc. The word should have connotations of a combination of self-contained knee-slapping laugher, "I told you so!", detestation, and relief at one's not being any part of it.
Here's a sample. I believe the words within square brackets are from Mr. Sailer, as he tries to figure out the spread on the diversity points:
Dara Khosrowshahi [Iranian], Uber’s chief executive, and Nikki Krishnamurthy [South Asian surname but might be a white woman with an Indian husband], the chief people officer, last week asked Bo Young Lee [East Asian], the head of diversity, “to step back and take a leave of absence while we determine next steps,” according to an email on Thursday from Ms. Krishnamurthy to some employees that was viewed by The New York Times.That excerpt is so telling, so clarifying to me on what the modern corporate-HQ world is like, that I can keep my conclusion here pretty short.
“We have heard that many of you are in pain and upset by yesterday’s Moving Forward session,” the email said. “While it was meant to be a dialogue, it’s obvious that those who attended did not feel heard.”
Employees’ concerns centered on a pair of events, one last month and another last Wednesday, that were billed as “diving into the spectrum of the American white woman’s experience” and hearing from white women who work at Uber, with a focus on “the ‘Karen’ persona.” They were intended to be an “open and honest conversation about race,” according to the invitation.
Diverse bitching biddies in the boardroom can't get any actual work (remember work?) done! Even non-diverse White bitching biddies can't, but diversity just distracts even more from the regular bitching.
What is Uber's deal? Oh, yeah, they run a website with lots of reservation, payment, tracking, etc, software that hooks up their contractor taxi drivers with potential riders. The corporate world of Uber ought to be concerned with keeping good drivers on the roster while still taking a serious cut, perhaps training drivers on a bit of their own automotive finances, so they won't quit as soon as that one car quits, reassuring passengers that they are safe from rape, robbery, or worse, reassuring drivers that they are safe from rape, robbery, or worse. They developed the food delivery business, Uber Eats, for those drivers who aren't people, people or are maybe a little scary on the road (the sub sandwiches don't complain). This company as run by the women described above doesn't seem concerned with any of that ACTUAL, core company business.
Are there really a lot of Americans out there who think the types of people described at Uber HQ can run Big Businesses and keep a real economy going? This was to be short conclusion, so that'll be a question for another post.
But, NO, they can't. This is no way to operate a country!
