I'm close to someone who has to walk on eggshells because some subordinate "person of color" is working harder at creating misery than they do at their job. Maybe it's worse because they are all women in a government agency, but the whole idea is what some folks call reverse racism.
This annoying person insists on doing things her way, but her way is always counter to regulation -- always. She's a perfect example of an insubordinate worker. Anytime there's an inspection, the whole team is at risk of losing their jobs because this nutcase sabotages everything. Worse, she goes around politicking with other staff, trying to sucker them into thinking she's such a princess. The real issue that she hates white people, and is glad to manipulate them to make everyone on her team miserable.
So, she has created this atmosphere of using her minority race status to avoid accountability. Most people can see right through her. She suffers from such a high degree of solipsism that she doesn't realize how preposterous her demands are.
First, I'm praying that this person close to me, who supervises this useless worker, can be relieved of her presence. Folks higher up the chain are onto her already, and some of them aren't white. They love the people they serve and want to get the job done, which is why the accept sorry pay for hard work.
But longer term I'm hoping the system that enables such nasty people will be broken down. I realize the high degree of institutional inertia on stuff like this, but if we can ever see the states secede from the Union, it will go a very long way to weakening the "empowerment" that serves only to cripple the work.
Here's the thing: It's a kind of racist revenge. They want you to walk around on eggshells and bury your sense of humor. It pleases them to no end to see you squirm when they start something. They take themselves way too seriously. When you were born poor white trash, as I was, there is no "privilege" to wrest away. The same goes for the poor lady who is close to me; she goes home weeping some nights. She has tried repeatedly to make peace, and is always suckered into yet another betrayal.
This is not how it works in the Covenant of Christ, so any pretense of white haters to being "Christian" is just that -- a pretense. The gospel knows no color, nationality, or culture, so hating anyone is anti-Christian. Always leave the door open for restoration, and close it against retribution.
I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother shall be guilty before the court; and whoever shall say to his brother, "Raca", [empty headed] shall be guilty before the supreme court; and whoever shall say, "You fool", shall be guilty enough to go into the hell of fire. (Matthew 5:22 NASB)
