Harris County Sheriff's Diversity Training: Our PowerPoint Presentation

Diversity: It's the Right Thing to Do!
Remember back in 2008, when the Harris County Sheriff's Office circulated those internal e-mails making fun of everyone (but white men?) And later that year, when deputies handcuffed a Sikh woman and her entire family -- and called them Muslims -- because she was carrying a religious object?

After a federal investigation, HCSO has finally received its punishment for all that racism: hire a consultant. The consultant will monitor internal affairs, which basically means he'll unlearn all deputies of racial prejudice with -- what else? -- Diversity Training.

Because nothing fixes racism like a good old-fashioned PowerPoint.

We imagine it'll go a little something like this:

Please take this off! It is not funny.  Sikh shown in a green cresent and Hindu Holi fetsival associated with Bhang is totally misleading and nowheere it shows this is supposed to be spoof or funny in the blog.  With hate crimes still happening against sikhs, this could be really mislead some people to believe Sikhs are Muslims..

Sahar & csingh... Calm down. This is a spoof, a parody. It's making fun of the Harris County Sheriff's Department. It's not the actual diversity training. Hence it reads: "We imagine it'll go a little something like this:" --> NOT "This is the actual PowerPoint to be used."

With his Islamic green and the Islamic Crescent necklaces the Sikh looks more Muslim than Sikh. Looks like the creator of this presentation needs some training first.

Really? This is the diversity training presentation that the Sheriffs will receive? The thumb up at the end is offensive to many cultures by the way Diversity is not about religion or color or ethnicity it is way beyond that - the presentation is about cultural sensitivity (Partial at that) not about diversityGood Luck
