Re: Does the elimination of racism begin with private employers having a zero tolerance policy for racist employees?

Well first you have to define racism in a way that can be applied to the workplace.

Racism is mostly a feeling one group has about another group.

So which groups are included and which are not? Is there a limit to the included and protected grouping that doesn't create a bias against another?

Are people allowed to simply not like someone else?

When you can answer all of these, there will be more.

Questions many I have, yaas.

The elimination of racism begins with removing all subhumans.  There was never a problem with "racism" until people started pretending that 3rd world monkeys should be treated as human.

This could be one advantage of at-will employment.

Since, in most states, an employer can fire an employee for any reason or no reason at all, an approach to ending racism could be to fire anybody who does anything even remotely racist. That would include both words and actions. And it would include racist acts both in the workplace or outside of work in private life. Post a racist meme on a message board? Fired. Make a racist joke at happy hour? Fired. Go to a white nationalist rally? Fired.

This would basically introduce a free-market economic incentive to not be a racist.



Also a "racist registry" would be great for employers to vet potential hires.  They would obviously want to avoid employing a racist.

All your rambling nonsensical scenario would do is drive racism underground where we have racist "speakeasies" with "buck" as the password.

Not really. If you went to one and were caught you would be fired. We could have spies to make sure the right people were getting shytcanned.

There would be a strong free market economic incentive to not be racist which should end racism over time.

Sounds like the Stazi in East Germany 

We all realize that is what you insane leftists aspire to, and we also know we have the means to stop you in your tracks.
The German people were not so fortunate, and they paid the price from your historical role models.
That will not repeat in the US.

You got to love it when the 3 rikers take up the chant and start accusing thier enmies as 3rd rikers, then go on to threaten with some downright 3rikish behavior to quell your kind. But all that really happens is that by turning the argument end over they reveal that they know their stance is on the wrong side of things.

Typical 3rd rikers/trumpers.

Not if you ask the NLRB.  They maintain you can say anything derogatory about your employer, as long as you lie about organizing a union.

this thread is stupud - at will employment means the employee or employer can just walk away - if the employee wants to sue the employer because they feel that they have been discriminated against then they should go for it - companies like google are already firing people that dont fit in to their culture - companies can go right ahead and do that and will pay the consequences - if the OP wants to go start some gestapo like company that practices radical ideology as company practice then he should go for it

It depends on the state. But in almost every state a company can fire you for any reason at all or no reason at all. The only exceptions being the federally protected classes. In Illinois an employer could fire you because they don’t like the sound of your voice or the color of your car and there would be zero legal recourse. This is the definition of at-will employment.

Its illegal federally to make racist statements at work, too.

I've been retired for over 5 years now so I don't work anyway.

But when I worked, where I worked, we never hired bucks. Never! As an employer just how stupid would you have to be to hire one?

Harassment Based on National Origin

    Ethnic slurs and other verbal or physical conduct because of nationality are illegal if they are severe or pervasive and create an intimidating, hostile or offensive working environment, interfere with work performance, or negatively affect job opportunities. Examples of potentially unlawful conduct include insults, taunting, or ethnic epithets, such as making fun of a person's foreign accent or comments like, "Go back to where you came from, " whether made by supervisors or by co-workers.

What about those black folks who hate anyone of a darker shade than they are?  (See Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing" to see an almost dictionary definition of racism in the black community.)  Are they racist?  Or how about German jews who consider themselves much more cultured and superior than the shtetl jews of Eastern Europe?  Or those Japanese who think that Koreans are a much lower form of humanity and should be enslaved?

We just don't know where you would draw the lines here fat boy.  Obviously you only care about racism in the white world, but everyone's a little bit racist.

Re: Does the elimination of racism begin with private employers having a zero tolerance policy for racist employees?

Its a common Libertarian argument that there shouldn't be any protection for racial discrimination, because a shopkeeper who won't let dark skinned people in their store, as an example, will just get less business because of it. Additionally, public scorn could also motivate.

I don't buy this argument, but I have heard it expressed.
