TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! KANSAS CITY MANDATORY 'IMPLICIT BIAS TRAINING' FOR CITY HALL COMING SOON DESPITE (OR BECAUSE OF) WORKER COMPLAINTS!!!



Like everyone else, workers at City Hall have endured hardship this year. Across the board cuts and severe restrictions over movement have demoralized employees. Now, a compulsory training program threatens to make working at 12th & Oak just a bit more arduous.

To wit . . .

CITY HALL THREATENS TO REQUIRE "IMPLICIT BIAS TRAINING" FOR WORKERS IN THE AFTERMATH CIVIL UNREST & SOCIAL JUSTICE PROTEST!!!

Check the legislation . . .

Ordinance #200510: Directing the City Manager to develop and implement a plan to provide implicit bias training to all City employees and report to the City Council within 60 days.

Championed by 3rd District Council Lady Robinson, here a preview of another City Hall mandate on employee thinking in the works . . .

"Implicit biases are the product of learned associations and social conditioning and most people are unaware that they hold them . . . Implicit bias training would educate City employees on their unconscious thoughts of race, gender, religion or appearances that affect their decision-making processes and quality of customer service and how to practice tolerance by treating all with dignity and generating respect . . ."

Actually, that doesn't sound too bad inasmuch as developing new personal skills for workers might benefit residents citywide as we count the days & months for a response from the 311 help line.

Moreover . . .

INSIDERS WARN THAT BOTH KCFD & KCPD WILL OPT OUT AND CLAIM THEY DO THEIR OWN IN-HOUSE TRAINING!!!

Still, with City Hall morale at an time low, department managers are whispering to council that now might not be the best time for political reeducation. KCMO is struggling to maintain infrastructure and answer increased demands for service within the parameters of a lower budget. Skeptics of this effort believe that the order to change employee worldviews might backfire and negatively impact an already tense workforce.

For now, the legislation is on hold until next week's Finance, Governance and Public Safety Committee meeting.

sounds like a really fun time. I'm in favor of any training for city hall. Corporate world has to do stuff like this all the time, why shouldn't everyone else!

The Commissars are showing their true Marxists agenda at city hall.

Any chance this mandatory training will help ameliorate the innate bias based solely on skin color that all African Americans have against Whites?

^^^ it’s about 90% black that works for the city so....

The incompetent blacks want the whites who are in charge to feel bad about being smart enough to be in charge, so this training will show whites how to suck up to blacks rather than treat them like human beings. CHUD out.

Yep and people will still make comments and perform stupid pranks to others. Because like 1/2 the people on here, people are rather impudent, disrespectful and ignorant. Just read any of Byron's replies. What not to be. Weird

Repeat after me.

Whites are not devils.

Whites overcome adversities in their lives too. They don't have privilege because of their skin color.

Whites lives matter too.

That training should cover it.

6:01 You know it won’t because whitey is racist, every single one of them, that’s what they want you to believe even though it’s not remotely true.

The money runs out if they admit whites aren’t racist, that’s all this has evar been about, free money for doing nothing, just ask Gwen grant!

Also from the Bee:

U.S.—Hackers have been blamed as Joe Biden posted a complete, coherent thought on Twitter earlier today.

As soon as Twitter support saw that Biden had posted several complete sentences in a tweet, they immediately locked his account down, suspecting a hack.

LOL ^^^ True dat. So, was that black stalker racist that killed the white lady last week ? Surely not. You are a fucking idiot beyond Byrondome even. We will call you the mini me of Nick Cannon.

The cry room is satire but they really should do it!

Just another contract for a "consultant" who manages to leap aboard the latest fad.
This kind of silliness has a half-life of about two days, if that, but the organization gets to put an X in a box next to all the participants' names so they can show they're as woke as the next group.
But the ginned up fake racial discrimination employment lawsuits will continue as usual.
Free money based on accusations and assertions is always available and even more difficult to turn down.
And it sure beats working for a living!

Fuck off Jamie..........now that was priceless.

Training only applies to white people: Although you never owned slaves, you will have to lick the boots and shoes of any minority you meet in the office, hallways, and elevators.

The ISO 9000, 5S people have a new scam to charge cities and corporations big bucks for. What a waste.

8:04 SCAM?!?! How dare you! How dare you! After this sensitivity training, the working environment in the city will transform! Workers will hug each other, sharpen each others' pencils, and chortle at all jokes. It will be wonderful! And that transformation will serve the public, too. Citizens can expect top-notch, expedient and efficient service from all sectors. Pot holes will be expertly filled and maintained. City clerks will render services with a smile. Well worth it in my book.

Just point out that todays black person is an overly sensitive low IQ individual you must give special attention to when dealing with much like a person with downs syndrome.
