A LIFE OF ADJUSTING TO CULTURAL RELATIVITY IS NOT A LIFE DEVOTED TO TRUTH | 2002-03-23
Well over a century ago, Mark Twain wrote that "All sane white people hate noise."
This white attitude towards noise starts early. A number of teachers have told me that one problem they had with integration was that the white children would come to them crying to them about the loud noise the black children were making.
Every single one of these teachers told me how they explained to the white children that the whites must Learn to Adjust in order to benefit from this precious multicultural experience. The idea that the black students might adjust their noise level absolutely never came up, even as a hint.
But surely, I am told, there is a universal truth. You just tell people what you see. All of us use sight, so surely this truth is universal.
In a Poltically Correct society, you had BETTER not just tell people what you really see.
