***** that want to hate on black people will believe anything that's negative.

Even if this ridiculous story is somewhat credible, which I doubt, no policy changes can be implemented without white approval.

Dem Libs are constantly telling blacks they cannot compete.
Thus, affirmative action.

That's REAL racism right there, this is what white liberals really think of black people.
If this story is true and if blacks don't revolt/riot over such blatant racism they really are as stupid/inept as libbies keep telling them that they are.

I'll never understand how me wearing a white t-shirt is some kind of "microaggression," but a leftie saying blacks are too stupid to tell time, or too irresponsible to stick to a commitment is A-OK.

That included start and finish of job day, days missed with normally no phone call and lunch time in & out. After a bunch of warnings they would be canned.The only ones that made a issue was one particular minority. Many times they would get a big mouth politician, or community person or preacher to demand they get their job back. Showed them my (CYA) book and the amount of effort done to reform the late people and they normally just went away, a bit mad but they went away.

Liberals to blacks:

You are inferior to whites and can't compete. Therefore, let us help you. Just stay on the plantation, ok?

OP's headline is misleading... naturally, it takes a bit of effort to read beyond the sensational blog headlines (and readers of those blogs generally don't expend such effort), so the origin of this story takes some clicking through.

OP's article is a blog of course, but cites another blog as the source; the source for that blog is yet another blog, the source for that blog is a tabloid (Daily Caller), and the Daily Caller finally links to the original blog posting.
OP's source is 4 steps removed from the original source and things got a little lost in translation.

Here's the original posting:

https://www.campusreform.org/?ID=9034


Here is the relevant section:

Quote:
On another slide, a character named Alejandro schedules a 9:00 a.m. meeting between two groups of foreign professors and students. The first group arrived fifteen minutes early, while the second arrived ten minutes late. According to the answers, it is wrong for Alejandro to “politely ask the second group to apologize,” or explain that “in our country, 9:00 a.m. means 9:00 a.m.”

Rather, the slide says that Alejandro should “recognize cultural differences that may impact the meeting and adjust accordingly,” and understand “that his cultural perspective regarding time is neither more nor less valid than any other.”
Yes, this is rather silly IMO. However, there is absolutely no mention of blacks, or even of race, just "culture."

Naturally, I was curious which cultures have this notion of time-- since none of the bloggers bothered to do that research, I did!

Turns out that it seems to be a Brazilian thing.

Quote:
The explanation for these differences is complicated. People from Brazilian
and North American cultures have different feelings about lateness. In Brazil,
the students believe that a person who usually arrives late is probably more
successful than a person who is always on time. In fact, Brazilians expect a
person with status or prestige to arrive late, while in the United States lateness
is usually considered to be disrespectful and unacceptable.
Consequently, if a
Brazilian is late for an appointment with a North American, the American may
misinterpret the reason for the lateness and become angry.
It also goes on to state that it's also customary to stay late as well.


Now, I fully agree that American norms should be honored by foreigners in most cases, especially if they are here long term. I mean, we're expected to study the customs of other cultures before traveling abroad, aren't we?

HOWEVER, the filtering through multiple blogs (grapevine effect) has created a false narrative that this is about blacks.

This seems like as good of a place *** any to add that my dad just did an Ancestry genetic test.

He is about a 1/4 black from 2 different North African Countries, about a 1/4 Jewish, and about half Irish. All 3 groups have a history of systematic repression, so ******* what?

Not at all surprised about the black ethnicity in there based on some physical features and dad's ability to get a killer tan. Kind of fun to know.

But

The notion that minorities are to be excused for certain behaviors is Obama's legacy. That's a fact as well.

I was skeptical as well. But as Walford showed, there are urban references. So it's not completely made up.

But I agree it is a culture thing, not a race thing. The first thing that came to my mind when I read this wasn't CPT. Being in the tech industry, it was IPT.....Indian People Time. I've heard many Indians jokingly refer to just that...especially between themselves. They seem to be very punctual at work for meetings and stuff....but apparently...outside of work for social events and such IPT is real and a well know phenomena.

The next time I am late for something, I will simply state that I am channeling "my inner blackness". Liberals will weep openly at my feet. I wouldn't be surprised if Ebony magazine gave me an award.

Keep researching, it isn't just Brazilians. I have worked in many countries around the world and a surprising number have some concept of "[name of country] standard time" where lateness is just normal.
