Vidant Got Woke

    There's an old maxim that holds: "when you find yourself in a hole, stop digging." The Woke People at Vidant apparently were absent the day they taught that idea. When you offend about half the people in an organization and many more supporter in the community, you're in a hole. It is time to stop the nonsense.

    We will not be attending the "Mindful Monday Meditations" because we have to work. But we would hope someone would point out the hypocrisy of in this approach to casting "White People" as racist, insensitive or needing to be re-educated. More significantly, we would suggest that it is prejudice manifest to assume a culture is monolithic. Yes, there are some racists--in all races and ethnicities, but not all are the same as the others within the group. This collectivist approach to is in and of itself wrong at best and evil at worst. It has no place in an institutional setting such as Vidant. We jut have to wonder how these people would treat a member of their team who wore a Confederate Flag pen to these sessions. We would not advocate that, because it would be offensive. Nearly as offensive as 16 Bridge-building Tips.
