    True but look back on how homosexuals were treated for centuries. Now how much has it changed.
    The western world is Multi cultural. Change is happening.
    Of course not all will change but the majority will be more tolerant of others.

    If so, we need to seek different characteristics for a racist.
    Why do you think they started referring to themselves as Nxxxxx?

    On the other hand gays did okay in antiquity. And a great, great uncle of mine lived with his boy friend in New York quite openly at the beginning of the last century.

    Before Christianity and Islam homosexuality in many countries was accepted and practiced.

    This is a loaded question.

    Since I'm old right now and spent much of my life in management, I have had to train myself to be hyper aware of race in the workplace and deliberately unaware of race in my personal interactions.

    This is an odd combination of activities to incorporate side by side on a daily basis. Is being hyper aware and deliberately unaware on a self enforced basis in ALL actions in the work place Racist? It seems as if it is.

    If Race becomes the guiding the beacon for all activities, I would argue that those activities, then, all become racist.

    On a personal level, I don't give a rat's patutie what race the people I deal with happen to be as long as they are courteous and amiable.

    I would much rather be the only white guy in group of friendly folks who are not lily white as be one of many white guys in a group of white A-Holes.

    That's just me.

    All of that said, racists that I run into, both White and Black, seem to be pissed off at the world and racism is only one more excuse to display and exercise their hate. It is always my pleasure to leave them seeking less hateful companions.
    I am not of the mind that a man is either of science or of religion. At his best and his worst, man exists in the misty glimmering where the falling angel meets the rising ape. That he chooses a direction from that point defines him as human.

    Thank you
    This may be of interest to you? Read an article for a recent study. This is the closest I could find. Though I will look later for that particular article.

    All pilots speak English.

    English is the official language of air travel, thanks to the United Nations’ International Civil Aviation Organization. As of 2008, pilots and air traffic controllers are required to speak English, no matter what part of the world they are in. Since hundreds of lives have been lost in crashes attributed to communication problems between pilots and air traffic controllers or pilots and other pilots, it was determined that they all speak one standard language.

    Neither of those sources state that "English is the universal language of business."

    There is no source that states that English is the universal language for business, and in fact there are billions of transactions occurring daily that are performed in non-English languages -- all perfectly legal.

    Neither of those, sorry but if your a pilot you have to speak English. Period. Or you don't fly internationally.

    And the business post I presented is a world standard.

    Now you can argue all you want but the truth is like flying a plane internationally you have to speak English and the business world is becoming the same.

    Have a good day.
