San Francisco School District Bans ‘Chief’ from Job Titles over Native American Links

Breitbart:
The San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) has banned the word “chief” from job titles because of its connotations with Native American leadership and a fear of offending indigenous people.

The San Francisco Chronicle reported Wednesday:

The word “chief” will no longer be used in reference to job titles in the San Francisco Unified School District in an effort, school officials said, to avoid the word’s connotation with Native Americans.

In an administrative decision released on Wednesday, the school district decided to retire the term among its 10,000 employees, said spokesperson Gentle Blythe.

“While there are many opinions on the matter, our leadership team agreed that, given that Native American members of our community have expressed concerns over the use of the title, we are no longer going to use it,” Blythe said in an email.

The origin of the word “chief” is actually French, not Native American, and entered English in the Middle Ages. more

  1. At this rate the gov’t Left will have, what, maybe five or six words that are OK to use? Four will be conjunctions. We will know them by their inarticulate grunting.

  2. I recently found out there is no longer any such thing as a “Master” bedroom. It is now refereed to as the Primary Bedroom.

    The North American Abos aren’t offended at the word “chief”. They just don’t want to be associated with The San Francisco Pædo School Board.

  5. Just wait until they discover car brake systems have Master cylinders and Slave Cylinders. I imagine some Libtards might be inclined to mill themselves and their cars. We can only hope.

  6. Chief is a word I use to refer to someone I want to hire. “What’s it going to cost to fix the pipe, Chief?” I thought it was respectful. And when referring to a different plumber, “The other plumbing Dick wants $300. You’re hired for $200.”

    Brad,
    If Master Bedroom is offensive, say the Master’s Bedroom.

  7. …one time when we went to a Dairy Queen on the Qualla Cherokee Reservation in NC that we walked through a large tourist trap building labeled “Chief Sanookie’s”, I was getting food off the menu, which had obviously been tweaked for the tourist trade, and the “Big Chief” burger caught my eye. I assumed it was OK since it was on the menu, so I ordered various things for my family from the skinny male Cherokee youth wearing the “Dairy Queen” uniform behind the counter, and finished with “…and a Big Chief combo”.

    This seemed to galvanize the youth, who said, “You mean the big CHEF burger?!?”, he said in a rather truculent manner.

    Somewhat startled for being unexpectedly being rebuked for a menu item, I again scanned the board over the native lad’s angrily hunched shoulders, and there was definitely a “i” in there. I was considering pointing this out, but with a wife and some young children with me it didn’t seem like arguing over vowels in a menu board was a hill worth dying on, especially with the food preparation done out of sight and literally NO other open dining choices in the area, so “sure, Big Chef combo” it is.

    Pretty nasty place, BTW, apparently staffed entirely by unhappy Cherokee children.

    We went with coolers in Indian country after that, but seems to me if the kid hated that allusion to his heritage so much that he should take his tomahawk to his employer instead of his customers. Not sure I’d be any happier if I had to work in a German restaurant in lederhosen with Sergeant Schutz phonetic spelling in calligraphic letters all day long with people expecting me to slap fight or oom pa pa at any moment, but if it bothers you THAT much you actually CAN leave the rez these days, lotta Affirmative Action out there to help you out, just sayin’…

    …we still have Master Clocks and Slave Terminals in the plant, and all my Japanese robots have a Mastering procedure so their Slave servos know where they are, but most people don’t ever see those labels since they’re pretty internal to the tech and people who DO see them are hopefully smart enough to not be offended, but ya never know…

  9. What are the libtards gonna do when they get the urge to MASTERbate while in a ZOOM meeting?
    I guess they will just call it “toobin”….

  10. E-7 and above, E-6’s are 1st Class Petty Officers, 1st class is another term soon to go as well as it implies someone is first class or better at something than others. Equity you know, which is another term for bullshit.

    Don’t forget about “male” and “female” threads, electrical connectors and pipe fittings.

  12. I seriously doubt Native Americans called their leaders chief since they did not speak the English language. Our people called them Chief because our language had a word (chief), that fit their leader’s position. What a bunch of weak-minded a-holes. Duh, duh, and duh.

  13. What will replace restaurant Chefs? Food Preparation Engineers?

    SF is so full of silly stupid squirrely people, like Gentle Blythe, either an old Hippie or a limp wristed pervert.

  14. SNS

    We gotta fix this shit pronto. Primary Clock, Primary Template, Primary Plan, Primary Race. Oops, they may not like that one.

  15. How does a school district not know the etymology of a simple word like ‘chief’. It’s been in use for hundreds of years. Idiots.

  16. Looks like a bunch of social justice *warriors* had a *pow wow* and decided to show how *brave* they were by banning the word “chief”.

    Not only is “chief” not a Native American word in any of the hundreds of Native American languages, it probably isn’t even a title in translation from any of those languages either. And I’d wager there isn’t a single sane Native American in the entire country who is offended by the word chief. This is literally just a bunch of imbeciles with power to prove how virtuous they are in the most stupid way possible.
