TKC TOLD YOU SO!!! MANDATORY 'IMPLICIT BIAS TRAINING' COMING SOON FOR KANSAS CITY WORKERS!!!



We talked about this feel good effort FIRST last week . . . Now it's news fact . . .

Here's the confirmation from a plucky local blog looking for donors . . .

City Council members voted unanimously in favor of legislation offered by Councilwoman Melissa Robinson, 3rd District, to ask the city manager to come up with a plan for the training within 60 days. It passed the Finance, Governance and Public Safety Committee on Wednesday.

The training targets feelings someone might have toward other racial, ethnic or social groups that are unconscious but might affect behavior or attitudes. Implicit bias is different from overt acts of conscious racism.

I hope that include implicit bias by/against Black people. Blacks are the biggest promoters of White supremacy.

Another ginned up gravy train for the latest self-appointed "consultants".
Not long ago the pitch was for "diversity training".
None of this crap is anything more than putting Xs in boxes in employee records and a few hundred grand in fake consultants' pockets.
How about a graduate course in intersectionality and using the correct pronouns with transgendered folks?
It never ends.

This training will be a precursor to an

“Unconscious Bias” training.

Robots will also be required to take this and automated assembly lines from most factory will have to attend.

Dang.

Well, this should be interesting considering that 75% of city employees are black!

I wouldn’t be surprised if the questions are different for black employees vs white employees.

^^^ this is clearly an attack on the white city employees, this isn’t racist at all is it.

My "implicit bias", even though just the word "bias" is sufficient: anybody with the city of KC, MO is a fuck-up.

Byron has been quiet lately. He probably felt a round of tummy-trouble coming on and went to San Francisco to air his views in public.

Simply put "reeducation meetings".

Or, and hear me out on this, employees could just do their effing jobs to the best of their abilities, whatever those may be, then go home and be as unproductive as they want on their own dime and their own time.

You know, the work ethic that built this into the greatest country on earth, which Biden & Democrats want to tear down for their China masters.

Through the years there has been a variety of these mandatory trainings for diversity, bias, inclusion, you name it. It doesnt work, employees and mana,gears resent it, work falls behind, it creates animosity among the staff and only some consultant who designed the stupid training and convinced some council member that is was good reap any benefits. City council should govern not get involved with the day to day management of city employees, you have managers for that.

Literally, telling us how to think to include a dose of white guilt programming.

At the conclusion of indoctrination - uh, training - what happens when the trainee still does not believe that implicit bias does not exist, or does not exist to the extent or in the ways described by the indoctrination - uh, training? Will the trainee be chased from the building by inclusion and diversity department staff wielding pitchforks and scythes?
