The New York Times seems to have it for Tesla and Elon Musk. They are constantly beating both things for things that are not mentioned otherwise. Currently the Gray Lady (19459012) tells a story revealing the ugly truth about the Tesla factory in Fremont, California. Workers there are racism the newspaper revealed!
According to the Times more than two dozen employees and former employees were questioned. All claim that they have suffered racist insults and bigotry from colleagues and supervisors. Three of them have filed suit against Tesla for racial discrimination.
Saying that this is not the case – Tesla, the beacon of the future of manufacturing, is being slandered by some peasant workers who address it to other employees CleanTechnica is often accused of a tesla Being a fan club, but excuse us if we take this story – albeit one – and turn it upside down.
The story here is not racism at the Fremont factory. The story here is that America is a seething cauldron of racial hatred and prejudice. And the cheerleader is Donald Trump, the man who has ridden fear and disgust at dark-skinned people to the White House, the man who calls nations "black-and-white" with a majority of black people, the man whose "America First" Slogan is an echo of similar tropes in American history that are based on the white supremacist ideology.
Before complaining about how terrible Tesla is to his staff, should the The Times management look inward to see if there is a similar behavior in their own ranks? As the famous aphorism from Matthew chapter 7, verse 3 says, "Why are you looking at the spot of sawdust in your brother's eyes, and not paying attention to the plank in your own eye?"
is not a similar behavior in The Times or in any other manufacturing facility in America? Or at one of the big tech companies like Apple, Google and Facebook? What is the point of choosing Tesla for public embarrassment? Is it because it has such a destructive influence and has angered so many entrenched organizations that it has to be crushed?
Tesla admits that racist behavior sometimes occurs in his factory. It is no excuse, but it is said that the number of complaints is only with a similar company of its size. "Tesla opposes any form of discrimination, harassment and unfair treatment, and we strive to provide all employees with a respectful work environment and to do our best to prevent bad behavior," the company said in a statement to The Verge ]. "What matters most to Tesla is our clear opposition to all forms of discrimination, harassment and unfair treatment. If we are informed that someone does not comply with these standards, we will immediately discuss how to expect it from any good company. "Anyone who has looked at a few interviews with Elon Musk knows that the captain is not a fan of discrimination, bullying. or intended behavior in general.
This article is in no way an excuse for bad behavior. It is an indictment of America, which in recent years has proven to be one of the most racist cultures on earth. Despite all the flowery protests that it is the "shining city on the hills," America is little more than a plantation culture where white people rule and blacks are expected to know their place. It's a place where hatred for dark-skinned people is as American as an apple pie.
Just last week, Mississippi brought to power a senator who spoke publicly about taking part in a "public hanging" and the trees in the state house were adorned with snares hanging from their branches. The white supremacist candidate won. That's a big part of America, and throwing the accusations against Tesla is nothing more than an attempt to cover up the blatantly racist core in the heart of America.
The soul of America was best summed up by Lyndon Johnson when he said, "If you can convince the lowest white man that he is better than the best colored man, he will not notice you grab his bag. Hell, give him someone to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you. "
Several years ago, black singer Nina Simone wrote a song about racism in America titled" Mississippi Goddam ". Things have changed, but little since. Stories about racial insults in Fremont do not speak about the American history of racial hatred. Rather the opposite – they pretend that the problem is somehow limited to a small segment of the population and one company among many.
The story of the New York Times is an act of cowardice for which she should be ashamed. The story is not Tesla; it is America. New York Times Goddam!
