NBC Cafeteria Menu and Racial Stereotyping

Posted By Lori Ziganto On February 4, 2010 @ 4:44 pm In NewsReal Blog | No Comments

The above photograph is an NBC Cafeteria sign, in honor of Black History Month.  I won’t hold my breath for the ever-deranged Keith Olbermann of MSNBC to make them so, however. Remember, racism, straight up, as Janeane Garofalo likes to bluster, is totally cool as long as you are of the “correct” political stripe. Olby is just buffoonish enough to consider an entity a purveyor of sweet, sweet liberal policy.

All the sign needs is Bill Clinton, asking for someone to fetch him some coffee. At least the sign is light-colored and not written in “negro dialect”. Harry Reid, therefore, approves!

Some, like Michelle Malkin, think we are being too “Politically Correct” by calling attention to things like this. I don’t agree (I think it’s the first time that I’ve disagreed with her!) This isn’t about being “Politically Correct”; that isn’t the point at all. Instead, it is calling out the PC Police. Every time.

It is bringing attention to the fact that while the Left claims some sort of moral superiority, they are anything but. Much like the Sarah Palin/Rahm Emanuel incident, it is using their own rules against them and making them play by their own rule book.

This is yet another glaring example of the latent racism amongst those who claim to be embracing diversity and post-racial. I wonder if they learned that at NBC Universal’s Diversity Council?

As part of this commitment NBC Universal established the Diversity Council in 2000. Made up of leaders from across the company, the Council has made strides in increasing diversity and creating programs that encourage diverse individuals to pursue careers in media and entertainment or explore business opportunities with the company.

Hey, here’s an idea — stop splitting people up into groups! Try and think like the rest of us. We see people as, you know, people.
