The National Captioning Institute is an equal opportunity employer by choice and will continue to recruit, hire, train and promote the best-qualified candidates to all job levels, without regard to race, color, creed, religion, gender, age, national origin, marital status, gender orientation, physical or mental disability not related to the performance of a specific position, or status as an eligible veteran.

What does this really mean?

I think it means absolutely nothing. It's just a statement put together to make non-white people think that Racism/White Supremacy is not being practiced when in fact it is being practiced.

You could be correct.

Yeah Trina, I think you noticed the same thing I noticed:

Quote:
The National Captioning Institute is an equal opportunity employer by choice


Quote:
"by choice".



I suspect the addition of those two words to the standard disclaimer found posted in most businesses and organizations under the system of racism White supremacy is a part of the refinement process of racism White supremacy.


In other words its the old "Cloudsong" routine; "we are different from those OTHER White people, nobody is forcing us not to practice racism...we CHOOSE not to".

The effect of those two words is to further confuse a non white person regarding the racist suspect status of all White people who are ABLE to practice racism in a system of White supremacy.

AND,

the responsibility of White person to stop OTHER WHITE PEOPLE from practicing racism White supremacy.

Kinda reminds me of the White person who says: "Im not a racist...my wife is Black"

As if having sexual intercourse with a Black person stops other White people from practicing racism White supremacy.

My response to the article Trina attached is an attempt to reveal how the system of racism White supremacy is refined through the addition of word/s.

Many of us see that "equal opportunity employment bla bla bla..." stuff at job sites and in the work place.

But what it really means is YOU ARE IN A SYSTEM OF RACISM wHITE SUPREMACY.


Otherwise, why do they need a sign saying "we don't practice racism"?

Exactly,

the practice of mistreating people on the basis of color is so ubiquitous (rampant) that even White people feel the need to put up a sign saying:

"don't look at me...I ain't doin it!".

The article Trina posted is a slightly refined version which includes the addition of the word "choice".

Thats gonna trip up alot of niggers because we instinctively understand that White people DECIDE.

Decide what?

Decide whether non white people will be mistreated on the basis of color.

Exactly, White people have that choice.

And its important for White people to BROADCAST their correct CHOICE in a system of racism White supremacy;

Ergo the addition of the word "choice" in the previous article which I suspect was written by a White person with the intent to get niggers to stop looking at THEM! And start looking at some other people; specifically, EACH OTHER.

So are you saying that when a white person says they are not practicing white supremacy (racism) "by choice" the non-white person tends to no longer view the white person as a racist suspect?

Yes.

Or at the very least, their suspicion is de-solidified. Look again at the statement:

Quote:
The National Captioning Institute is an equal opportunity employer by choice and will continue to recruit, hire, train...


Words are tools and someone was trying to DO something by including the word "choice" in the above statement. Based on my interactions with Cloudsong and other White people, I have found they place great value in convincing non white people that they are NOT practicing racism White supremacy.

After all, they are White people in a system of racism White supremacy.

If it ain't them, then who is it?

Ive got VGQ, and for me it ain't enough for an individual White person to CHOOSE not to practice racism in a SYSTEM of racism White supremacy.

They gotta CHOOSE to produce Justice which means they must counter the ability of OTHER WHITE PEOPLE to practice racism.

Which brings me to the very important question VGOD asked Cloudsong:

"What are you going to DO if White people do not stop practicing racism?"

Thats the question to ask White people who CHOOSE not to practice racism.

What is the counter-racist strategy or technique to minimize confusion for non-white people when white people attempt to convince non-white people that white people are not white supremacists (racists)?

For me, it is to codify (follow THE LOGIC) everything. It is racist logic that non-white people be confused about which white person is a white supremacist (racist) so it must be counter-racist logic that a non-white person adopts a code (follows THE LOGIC) since there is no mechanism for a non-white person to determine which white person is a white supremacists (racists), because the white supremacists (racists) are so deceptive, each white person that is able to practice white supremacy (racism) is a racist suspect...no matter what the white person says and/or does he or she, if able to be, are a racist suspect.

Mel,

My counter-racist suggestion to the National Captioning Institute would be to stop practicing racism if they are, in fact, practicing racism and to promote Justice which is guaranteeing no one is mistreated and guaranteeing the person that needs help the most gets the most help.


First, I would have to ask whomever is "in charge" of the The National Captioning Institute "Are you a White person?" Also, I would ask that person who is" in charge" of the National Captioning Institute is the person who is responsible for all hiring and firing of people "Is that person a White person?"
