Headline Writers Clearly Hate Kansas City Star Columnist Mary Sanchez Too!!!
Credit where it's due . . .
Mary Sanchez wrote a rather thoughtful column on the difference between diversity and race-based tokenism providing a great example o . . . It's something she has a great deal of experience with and we all work better when we write what we know.
Sadly . . . The headline captures EXACTLY the opposite angle of the article:
"Ending race-based slots would not serve justice"
Now, just about everybody knows that newsies don't write their own headlines despite the fact that most people just read the header and a few graphs and move on . . .
While this could have been intentional and possibly a bit of trolling . . . What I've always suspected and heard is that nobody hates the people working for The Star more than the people working for The Star . . . And all their former disgruntled employees as well.
Also . . . I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the fact that really rail against "race-based" affirmative action aren't really serious given the fact that (data suggests) schools or workplaces admitting or hiring based only on test scores would quickly result in Asian and Indian dominance that NOBODY is fighting for . . .
Finally . . . None of this is as interesting as Rosa Acosta and dead tree media outlet dedicated to her
booty body of work.
