The Bookworm Beat 2-25-15 — the illustrated edition and open thread

The first cartoon in this line-up really resonated with me.  I was talking to someone the other day — a Progressive — who was complaining about her disastrous secretary, who is completely disorganized.

I asked the obvious question.  “Why don’t you fire her?”

“Weeelllll,” she  hedged, “that’s not really possible.”

A little more tooth-pulling, and I got the answer:  “My secretary’s black and female.  My company mostly can’t fire her.”

Let me just say that I consider it profoundly demeaning, and therefore racist, to hold blacks and women, and especially black women, to a lower standard than one would hold other employees. I happen to think that blacks, women, and black women are as capable of being capable as anyone else and that it’s an insult to imply or act otherwise.
