The Push for Diversity is Killing Diversity

The 9 Painful Stages of Realizing You Live In a ‘White Person Bubble’” said one Buzzfeed article.

Why Disney’s ‘first African princess’ is the spirit animal for global white supremacy,” claimed a entry.

Fashion, plus-size modeling and race: When ‘diversity’ isn’t so diverse,” noted a CNN piece. (This one’s a double whammy: it’s not enough that a plus-size model made the cover; this writer laments that they’re not racially diverse enough, too.)

Just a few more minutes and a few more clicks led me to piece after piece describing the “lack” of diversity in our country (from race to gender to weight and beyond), and the prevalence of some kind of privilege (usually white).

The irony is incredible: We live in one of the most diverse (in every sense of the word) nations on planet earth. And yet the broken record continues: we’re not diverse enough

  • I’m all for that.

    This will never end as long as Diversity Consultants get paid 100K+ a year to clamor for more diversity.

    • Yes. When you are an “expert” who specialty is “solving” a social “problem”, the last thing you want to do is solve.

    The other day Ann Coulter remarked, “[America’s] not more diverse, it’s more Mexican.” That’s what open borders to the third world has brought.

  • The 50th anniversary of the immigration reform act of 1965 is coming up in the autumn. There ought to be plenty of interesting commentary around then.

      “Look at me — I’m not white privileged.”

      Funny that none of these self-hating people commit suicide. Of course not, they seek to bring down everyone else.

      • Uncle_Waspy

        It’s a variation of humblebrag, Alain. The faux humility, it all boils down to advertising one’s own moral superiority.

    The world used to be diverse. You could travel to different cities in the country and different countries in the world and they would all be different. Now that Paris is diverse, it’s the same as Rome, which is diverse, and Berlin and London which are diverse. Before they all became diverse they were all different. Now that they’re diverse, they’re all the same. I doubt that any of the diversophiles would understand that.

        My kids are Metis but you’d never know it to look at them.
        Must be my wife’s Icelandic side, then.

    Why do all the diverse people want more white neighbours?

    • Frau Katze

      Stop noticing things. It’s a thought crime.

      How else are they going to get big screen TV’s?

    I actually started looking at the Salon site and got sucked in – into getting a headache. I think they really HATE conservatives, small government proponents, Christians and caucasian folks. Just a feeling I got. What nice, inclusive people there at Salon.
    Oh, and don’t you know “diversity” simply means “anything but white?”
