8304: Riding The Insensitivity Train.
Talking out loud with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Hot 97 DJ Cipha Sounds was indefinitely suspended for making on-air remarks that especially offended the Haitian community in New York. Station officials declared Cipha Sounds “will immediately undertake sensitivity training focused on the Haitian community and specifically, the challenges the Haitian community has faced in terms of the HIV epidemic.” Gee, sensitivity training is growing increasingly specialized.
• Christine O’Donnell argued she did not engage in any financial wrongdoings connected to her failed U.S. Senate campaign. “There’s been no impermissible use of campaign funds whatsoever,” insisted O’Donnell during an interview. “You have to look at this whole thug-politic tactic for what it is.” O’Donnell should immediately undertake sensitivity training focused on Thug Life and specifically, the challenges people in the community have faced in regards to Thug Life.
