Apple diversity chief lasts just six months

From Yaron Steinbuch at New York Post:

Apple’s diversity chief is stepping down after only six months on the job — after causing an outcry by saying that being a minority or a woman are not the only criteria for diversity, according to reports.

Denise Young Smith, who was named vice president of diversity and inclusion in May, made controversial comments last month during a One Young World Summit in Bogotá, Colombia. More.

Reality check: Apparently, there are only one or two ways to be diverse and Silicon Valley is in the process of narrowing it down.

    Diversity and inclusion are nothing but fascist buzzwords. Anyone uttering them should be shunned.

      SJW redefinitions:
      Diversity: non-white
      Inclusion: exclusion of traditional morality and societal ethics

    Diversity is their strength because 1984 will really be like 2017!

      2017 is worse than 1984.

        The Progressive and SJWs believe that Orwell’s 1984 is an cookbook, rather than a warning. They might as well wander around our lives carrying books with titles of “To Serve Man”.

    Moreover her replacement’s job is at least one level lower. It reports to the head of HR not Tim Cook. Her job was supposed to be a PR mouthpiece and for that she was given a top tier job in the company. But she didn’t get the memo that she would not be permitted to think. Even though she’s black it’s not like Congress or the media where black women can say and do what they like and ignore the boss. The corporate world doesn’t work that way not even for her. And her corporate career is probably dead and buried.

    The left has littered the field with landmines that go off at the slightest political deviance. They figure they’ll rid themselves of conservatives this way.

    But those landmines will destroy more progressive careers than conservative ones, who often delight in triggering the odd explosion.

    I absolutely love your irony. I’ll be stealing this line, it’s devastating.

    The most charming characteristic of Progressives is that they eat their own.
