I had reason to be at a public school today that is attended primarily by children of color, and the principal and vice principal were also diversity, since only teachers and administrators who are diverse are qualified to teach a diverse student body. The analogous situation does not apply to white children, however; diversity is so diversely awesome, that it is qualified to teach ANYONE, including non-diverse children. Also, white teachers and white students might conspire to not celebrate diversity; remember, as Adrean Arlott says, “Diversity is strength; similarity is weakness; since we are all equal, we are all similar; since we are all similar, we are all weak. That is why we need Compulsory Diversity News.
Anyway, at this diverse school there was a terrible outbreak of flies. I noticed that the garbage cans were uncovered, and there was cafeteria waste in them.
that there were swarms and swarms
I saw the diverse janitor and mentioned to him that if he covered up the garbage cans, the fly problem would go away. He grunted something about “that’s what they give us.” I suggested perhaps he could put cardboard over the garbage cans — even that would stop the flies from laying eggs and hatching and swarming. It would break the cycle! I tried explaining fly biology to him — eggs, maggots, flies, eggs, maggots, flies. Break one part of the life cycle — no more flies! He looked at me with pain in his eyes. I let it go.
The janitor blamed the recent heat, said they just hatched today. Well not shit Sherlock! It’s the combination of the heat, and the garbage cans! Heat is not a problem if you have sanitary conditions!
Stupid posters everywhere, showing entertainers and affletes of color, urging chillun of color to drink milk and graduate and read.
