Luke Visconti’s Ask the White Guy column is a top draw on DiversityInc.com. Visconti, the founder and CEO of DiversityInc, is a nationally recognized leader in diversity management. In his popular column, readers who ask Visconti tough questions about race/culture, religion, gender, sexual orientation, disability and age can expect smart, direct and disarmingly frank answers.
In one of the major towns near where I live, a 92-year-old black women [sic] was shot to death. Because she lived alone in a bad neighborhood, she had bars on her home and a gun for protection. The manager of the facility where I work was making racist jokes about the ghetto grandmother holding her gun sideways and taking out some cops. Why do white people think this kind of thing is okay? I truly don’t get it.
Thank you for making this point. I don’t get it either.
Perhaps some people reading this will see themselves in the first paragraph and think about it.
