Commissioner Amanda Fritz says she will close her office next week to take her six staff members to a retreat in Arizona to learn about diversity at a cost of roughly $40,000.

“Fritz and her staff, about half of whom are people of color, plan to spend at least 3 1/2 days in Tubac, Arizona, near the Mexican border, participating in a diversity workshop put on by a Portland-based company, White Men as Full Diversity Partners.

The sessions are meant to help participants understand their role and personal stake in their group’s inclusion efforts and to “understand how systemic racism, sexism, heterosexism and classism operate as systemic advantage in their work, community and personal lives,” the organization’s website says.”

Does this mean that they have been discriminating against White Men and need to stop being racist and sexist? I think so.
