‘Diversity’ software ‘scours the Internet to determine the sex and ethnicity of prospective employees’

Not satire:

If the software’s title sounds like a postmodern novel about cultural genocide, the Maoist tone of Entelo’s mission statement would make it a fine villain’s soliloquy:

“We’re here to help guide the way with never-before-seen tools … guaranteed to make your recruitment take a great leap forward.”

Just in case the boys (and girls) at Entelo aren’t aware, the last “Great Leap Forward” saw 2 to 3 million Chinese citizens brutally killed under Communist rule—out of a total body count of up to 45 million. I humbly suggest Entelo change that phrase to “stumble blindly toward big bucks and a bleak future.” It sounds snazzier, anyway.
