Why Is It That Things Like Protection From Employment Discrimination Are Always Left To Members of the Permanently-Employed Elite?

I still say that her eventual landing point will be the Rhode Island Avenue Cesspool, but this nevertheless illustrates the disease that has infected every cell of what used to be a civil rights movement:

Pride at Work, a nonprofit labor organization that is the official LGBT constituency group for the AFL-CIO, announced today that Morgan Meneses-Sheets has been hired as the organization’s development director. The organization, whose mission is to ensure equality and visibility for LGBT people at their place of employment….

When was the last time any LGB(T) organization that claims to have an interest in ending employment discrimination against LGB(T) people put someone in charge of that issue who really, really, really, really knows (and I mean present tense – not someone who experienced it so long ago that the place of employment where it occurred wouldn’t even be on page four of a three-page resume and has now regenerated into a unit of the permanently employed gay elite, whose appareny gaps in employment are actually just slow acts of teleportation from one pod of Gay, Inc., to another) what that type of discrimination feels like?

    Rule number 1: Because elites are elites. Most of them grew up within weathly families – read Republican business family culture) regardless of the fact they are LGB(T). Mary Cheney comes to mind.

    Rule number 2: Elites by definition, only rarely have actual experience regarding the policies they cast down on others.

    Rule number 3: Elites always think they know what is best for the “little people”

    Rule number 4: Delusions and mythology about other cultures and classes are actively taught to those in privilege class

    All these rules and more are necessary to maintain status quo.
