In earlier times locks were made by blacksmiths or craftsmen of timber. Security systems consisted of soldiers or appointed guards, even geese played a part. As times changed and the industrial evolution took hold, security systems moved in to the world of mass production and the human resources being soldiers, police, private guards and their associates. The Second World War saw very large changes and developments in all sectors of the security industry and none more so than the electrical and the mechanical side of security. For further reference, the electrical and mechanical side of the security industry is known as technical security. The guards and police are referred to as human resources. As time moved on, and soldiers of the Second World War aged and left the private security industry, so too did the security industry change, skills, knowledge and experience, that had kept the security industry poised to handle any situation, so to speak is now accountable. However, it was also now a time to move on and the soldiers and technocrats after the Vietnam war era, took the technical side of the security industry to the forefront of today’s developments well in to the front of the space age, the very front. As the forefront of technologists proceeded to spread through the technical security, the human resources in security separated and headed in other directions, splintering on the way. By the late nineteen nineties in the private sector, crowd controllers, electro technology security, fence, gate, guards, locksmiths, and security door manufacturers and installers were worlds apart. Their experiences and developments had matured to such a high level that they were not compatible. As these developments were taking place, different parts of the industry developed associations and groups, mostly with good intentions and a desire to bring forth a more secure and workable industry. Different associations, groups, and other sorts of people also wanted power and, when the government of the day at the beginning of the new century sought to improve the security industry, they were met with resistance from a large range of players with high stakes to lose and a threat to life style and practices.

Embrace Leadership to Combat All Forms of Prejudice Is there a “nigger” in you? If you have attempted to avoid and/or escape oppression, been made to feel as if you are a problem, been treated as “lesser than” or even like a criminal, all just because you are different in a given context, then what Dr. J. W. Wiley asserts through the title of this book inescapably applies to you. Through any of our multiple identities—stereotyped, marginalized, or ostracized by our socio-economic class, level of education, gender, disability, age, race, sexual orientation, or religion—we are all potential victims as well as perpetrators of denigrating language and discrimination. Dr. Wiley borrows the agency of nigger, arguably the quintessential, most universally known term of disparagement of those negatively considered the Other, to re-frame the word as no longer just a racial term but one that symbolizes many of the ways we disrespect or bully one another, are inconsiderate of one another, prejudge one another, and internalize our demonization. He defines the word in a way that demonstrates its equivalence to other dysfunctional language (retard, bitch, fag, trailer trash, etc.) that suggests that those so targeted are unworthy of consideration in our society. By creating a conversation around such language, Dr. Wiley challenges us to recognize that, when we give in to our prejudices and stereotypes, the “nigger in you” is what we are apt to see when we encounter those different from ourselves. The author, who is Director of the Center for Diversity, Pluralism, and Inclusion for the State University of New York–Plattsburg, a Lecturer in Philosophy and Interdisciplinary Studies, and president of his own consulting business, engages diversity in a uniquely inclusive way and as inseparable from social justice. By dissecting the offensive language we often use, consciously or unconsciously, Dr. Wiley provokes us to recognize that, since every one of us has multiple identities beyond just the color of our skin, it is virtually impossible for most of us not to have felt the sting of oppression, or the power of privilege that some of those same multiple identities may confer on us. Consequently, it is morally incumbent on us to contest and ultimately transcend oppression wherever we encounter it, to respect the humanity of those different from us, and become allies in the war to protect and advance people’s right to be different. Through personal stories, scholarship, poetry, commentary on current affairs, lyrics, and his experiences as a Black man both rooted in African American culture and the culture of the academy who daily has to navigate and negotiate multiple worlds, Dr. Wiley leads us on a journey toward social justice. In doing so, he empowers us—in whatever sphere, private or public, in which we have some agency—to embrace our leadership moments by engaging those who would perpetrate dysfunctional language or behavior, and help create a world in which differences are respected and validated.
