A better idea

 



話題になっている動画を今見ました。悪いことに対して決然と非難しBetter ideaで対処しようという態度は素晴らしいです。


You should be outraged, not only as an airman, but as a human being. And I’ll tell you, that the appropriate response for horrible language and horrible ideas, the appropriate response is a better idea.


重要なことを伝えると前置きしてから4回も同じような内容を繰り返しています。大事なことを効果的に伝えるには繰り返しを厭わないことも大事なようです。


So just in case you’re unclear on where I stand on this topic, I’m going to leave you with my most important thought today: 

If you can’t treat someone with dignity and respect, then you need to get out. 

If you can’t teach someone from another gender, whether that’s a man or a woman, with dignity and respect, then you need to get out. 

If you demean someone in any way, then you need to get out. 

And if you can’t treat someone from another race or a different color skin with dignity and respect, then you need to get out.




日本でも色々なところで取り上げられるでしょうが、スピーチのスクリプトのサイトがあったのでご紹介します。日本でもとんねるずの時代錯誤のギャグが批判を浴びていますが、多様性の価値を育む方向に進むしかないので、あのような態度に対してはきっぱりと否定しないといけないはずです。


A BETTER IDEA

“You should be outraged”: A US Air Force general gives a lesson in leadership after racist slurs

We received outstanding feedback from that session at Charlottesville, but I also have a better idea and it’s about our diversity, and its the power of the diversity, the power of the 4,000 of you and all of the people that are on the staff tower and lining the glass, the power of us as a diverse group, the power that we come from all walks of life, that we come from all parts of this country, that we come from all races, we come from all backgrounds, gender, all makeup, all upbringing. The power of that diversity comes together and makes us that much more powerful. that’s a much better idea than small thinking and horrible ideas. We have an opportunity here, 5,500 people in this room, to think about what we are as an institution. This is our institution and no one can take away our values. No one can write on a board and question our values. No one can take that away from us.


最後のようなことをわざわざ言わなくてはいけないのは大統領があんな感じだからという悲しい現実のせいでしょうか。
