O.U.C.H! Our Unwelcome Colored Help
A damning account of federal racism run amuck, after a local management trainee has the temerity to show up at the workplace, wearing a black face and a white shirt and tie, and is subjected to verbal and psychological abuse, job and promotion discrimination, hate literature and other downright “unneighborly” acts, such as losing or discarding his completed work, by upper management. Also evident are several examples of laughable managerial incompetence and silliness, and housewives lacking both education and open minds, functioning as ersatz managers, and drawing salaries comparable to people in private industry, who have advanced degrees, all the while doing their level best to prevent even educated blacks from attaining their own level of advancement. Included, also, is frank discussion about the fallacies of race and racial superiority and racial purity. There are also examples of abusive, arrogant, and sadistic “preppie pork chopper” officers, insensitive, racist stereotyping by an officers’ wives’ club, a secret, pre-planned promotion denial arrangement, and racially motivated police stops and assaults.
