Wasting Time

Clocks are racist, or something:
The curriculum depicts several different fictional scenarios. One slide features a man named Alejandro, who is planning a meeting between two groups, each of which contains foreign professors and students. One group shows up 15 minutes early, the other 10 minutes late.

The guide says it would not be “inclusive” of Alejandro to “politely ask the second group to apologize” for wasting the time of the group that arrived several minutes before the designated meeting time — 9 a.m. Instead, Alejandro should “recognize cultural differences that may impact the meeting and adjust accordingly.”

It is important for Alejandro to understand “that his cultural perspective regarding time is neither more nor less valid than any other,” the training continued.
Laziness is a cultural right?
