America's Discrimination Circus February 2021
Confession One: America WAS racist, and so was Dr. Suess. Both underwent a transformation from racist to leading anti-racist in record breaking time. Confession Two: America USED TO believe in white supremacy. Then it became the leading nation to undo white supremacy in the world. So, if America isn’t systemically racist, and Americans are not white supremacists, what is going on? There is no power to be gained by appealing to all Americans as equal. Politicians cannot gain patronage by treating everyone as equal. Ethnic leaders would be out of a job. Political commentators would have to compete on competent news delivery rather than race-based partisan rhetoric. Because of this, Americans have to endure daily doses of racism in all walks of life. The problem America faces today is that the people on a mission of increasing power and patronage are inadvertently or intentionally promoting discrimination.
Reparations for All or None
Reparations for All or None. America was doomed to fail. Nations that enjoyed peace and prosperity were racially, ethnically, and religiously homogenous. That was never America. Theorists were predicting it would fail from internal conflict. No question, America was a hell hole of biases and privations. Who should receive reparations? Native Americans and nearly every descendant of an immigrant that arrived between 1607 and 1964 could qualify for reparations using a yardstick of acceptable and legal behaviors today.
After 1965, America ended its tolerance for intolerance. Newer immigrants experience a relative cake walk, but America is experiencing numerous unaddressed challenges, because it embraces the insane notion that conflict is black vs. white. The consequences are disastrous, and reparations won’t help. America and Americans need to wake up.
Racism and anti-Racism in the World: before and after 1945
Nineteen-forty-five was a global tipping point. Instead of nations being routinely racist, they were to be anti-racist. Hundreds of years of laissez faire attitudes toward discrimination that permeated all six inhabited continents was officially ending. America was at the fore of this new anti-racist zeitgeist in 1945 and it remains at the fore of the 20% of nations from Europe, North America and Oceania that are committed to anti-racism. These nations have shown how extraordinarily complex it is to end discriminatory practices rooted in history and perpetuated at home, communities, and generally in society. But the fight is young and none of the anti-racist nations are giving up, meanwhile most nations won’t even enter the ring. Most nations are demonstrably and unapologetically racist; they see real value in homogenous societies, ordered societies, and privileged and unprivileged people.

In a world where business has embraced technology, the Internet is bound to have a profound impact on the development of high-tech strategies. We are living in a time of breathtaking upheaval, complexity, and change, when much of what is cutting-edge today is obsolete tomorrow.

She believes there has never been a time when strategies were more important--especially strategies designed to meet the unique challenges of the Internet era. She believes that there has never been a more important time to strategically prepare for the bumpy ride ahead.
