Clemson ‘Diversity’ Training: Time Is Culturally Relative, Expecting Promptness Is Racist

This is not the Clemson college I remember.  It makes me wonder how far off the deep end my alama mater South Carolina has dived.

In one slide, employees are taught that tardiness is acceptable because the concept of time is culturally relative. Thus, every culture’s perception of the actual time must be respected - since one “cultural perspective regarding time is neither more nor less valid than any other.”

The slide gives the example of “Alejandro,” who called a 9:00 AM meeting, and teaches that he should not rebuke a group of foreign professors and students who show up late:

“Time may be considered precise or fluid depending on the culture.”

Thus, the slide teaches, Alejandro shouldn’t impose his definition of time on others, because “his cultural perspective regarding time is neither more nor less valid than any other."

The more incredibly stupid thing I've ever read.
