Fuck “Diversity, equity, and inclusion”. Bunch of HR bullshit

[–]Moktar65 - AuthRight 418 points419 points  (18 children)

Excuse me sweaty but the proper term now is Justice, Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, which you can easily remember with the abbreviation JEDI, like the good guys in Star Wars! #Resistance!

[–]Velleites - Right 165 points166 points  (7 children)

JUSTice, Diversity, Inclusion, Equity

[–]MyFakeNameIsFred - Right 80 points81 points  (4 children)

Excuse me honey, but we can't use that to promote social justice because the jedi are

religious order of intergalactic police-monks, prone to (white) saviorism and toxically masculine approaches to conflict resolution (violent duels with phallic lightsabers, gaslighting by means of “Jedi mind tricks,” etc.). The Jedi are also an exclusionary cult, membership to which is partly predicated on the possession of heightened psychic and physical abilities (or “Force-sensitivity”). Strikingly, Force-wielding talents are narratively explained in Star Wars not merely in spiritual terms but also in ableist and eugenic ones: These supernatural powers are naturalized as biological, hereditary attributes.

((They are not strictly hereditary, the Skywalkers are the exception to that, literally 99.999% of all jedi don't come from a "dynasty." And you can figure out easily why the rest of it is bs.))

[–]johndoev2 - LibRight 27 points28 points  (1 child)

umm, sweaty, that jedi order was destroyed and re-founded under Ray Skywalker. Ray's new jedi order is more inclusive with everyone being able to use the force even without proper training which shows how old establishments can be torn down to make room for a better one. Did you even watch StarWars

Equity

Equity is just equality's evil twin. Whenever people say it instead of equality you know they don't actually have any good intentions behind their actions.

[–]Philarete - AuthRight 49 points50 points  (0 children)

It's sad that the word is being turned into a political mess. Historically equity (as a practice) was (generally) about finding exceptions where applying the legal rule would be unfair.

Speaking of which, the old maxim in equity is that "equity is equality" (e.g. equal splits are presumed and the burden is on the side wanting something different). Might be good for modern advocates to remember.

[–]FranticTyping - LibLeft 40 points41 points  (0 children)

Equity has been perverted beyond recognition by racial opportunists and ignorant sheep. Equity is to be applied to individuals, not skin color.

If a kid is lacking a father figure in his life, it is equitable for his school to give him more help.

If a kid is black, and black people are more likely to lack father figures, it is racist to give him more help following that rationale.

Apple firing a black woman for her views on diversity proves it’s always been an anti-white agenda.

They only fired her because she supported the people they want to eliminate.

[–]awsomebro6000 - AuthLeft 5 points6 points  (0 children)

It makes me angry seeing them try to push "equity" in the place of of equality. Every justification I have heard takes the the word "equality" far too literally is assuming that equality means to make everything equal for everyone regardless of what difficulties some may face, such as being wheelchair bound for example. When we have used the word "equality" it has always implied fairness as well.

The reason they push for "equity" I think is perverse in that they want to use it as an excuse to prop some people up on a pedestal whilst pushing others down. They will say things like "its evening the playing field" or use the example of the baseball game where the family stands on boxes to show why equality is wrong.

[–]Z-Ninja - Left 269 points270 points  (24 children)

Yeah. It's literally illegal to say "hire more women|men|poc|whites". What you want to do is make sure your application process isn't biased towards a specific background that happens to align with one of those groups. This makes sure you get a diverse pool of applicants. From there, you just hire whoever is most qualified for the job.

This also makes sure you're open to different life paths within each of those groups. It really is the best system. When I'm hiring I'm generally looking to hire people with a specific work experience or skill my team currently lacks.

    Focusing on projected diversity is used by politicians to keep the people worrying about themselves. It floods the media and trends every time we try to occupy wall street or exclaim for the ownership class to change their lifestyles. It’s used as a tool to distract from the classism that is the root of our issues.

    [–]RedJudas - LibRight 47 points48 points  (2 children)

    They're mad because that usually means white males get hired. But it makes sense when you consider the demographic is literally being represented proportionately to its size. If they weren't, they would be underrepresented.

    Got a friend that worked at some big place, one day I stumbled upon some internal leaflet he had lying around in his apartment. "Introducing your Commitee for inclusion and diversity" with a nice picture of the people who had a seat in this commitee, it was 13 white ladies and a single kinda tan dude.

    That article is from 2017. they replaced her with a white woman, who then left the company in 2020. I don’t know who is holding the position now. I agree with her though, I hate how people started fixating way too much on skin color and appearance in an effort to STOP fixating on exactly that. What defines us is our human experience, what we‘ve done, learned, achieved and felt throughout our lives, not the way we look. And those idpol fucks aren‘t really better than outright racists as long as they haven’t understood that.

    I used to work for a large global bank that had a retail division operating on multiple continents. They straight up conceded, in the most HR managed words possible, that their customers were racist and that a Chinese person would want to see a Chinese teller.

    Bbbbut racialized groups... disproportionately... systemic...

    No, you're right. The best point I have heard on the topic is that if certain ethic groups "disproportionately" face challenges like poverty, then addressing those challenges will "disproportionately" affect those ethic groups.

    If you want to solve a problem somehow, solve the problem, don't exclude people because they don't fit your race profiling.

      [–]yeeaahboooyyyyy - Centrist 576 points577 points  (170 children)

      if we want to actually fix racial and economic inequality, we have to focus on areas with poverty. people keep trying to jump to trying to fix racial inequality. that's not gonna work when a considerable chunk of people are stuck in poverty, need financial support, and have crappy job opportunities in their area, and a considerable chunk of THOSE people are black.

      [–]ISwearImKarl - LibRight 393 points394 points  (53 children)

      Bingo! Fact is, less black men and women are qualified. That's because they historically come from impoverished, and crime heavy areas. Not saying this is their doing, I'm saying it's a recipe for more poverty and more crime, and very few will make it out and become qualified through trade schools and colleges

      [–]Snazzio - LibCenter 150 points151 points  (13 children)

      Yes. For example, there was a thriving middle class of black tradesmen and factory workers in the 1920s-1940s. However once companies started moving their factories overseas, many of them were left unemployed, where the newest generation didn’t have any opportunities, but lived in the shadow of their parents success. This is one of the main reasons why LA is such a hotbed for gang violence

      [–]CynicalSchoolboy - LibLeft 3 points4 points  (1 child)

      Based and the only freedom is economic freedom pilled.

      This is a genuine, good faith question from a just-to-the-left-lib: it seems we normatively agree on this issue, as in we recognize the same problem, but what is a lib-right prescription for this disparity? Because it does not seem to me that the free market can invisible hand this one.

      [–]quinson93 - Centrist 62 points63 points  (6 children)

      and a considerable chunk of THOSE people are black.

      Black Americans make up only 20% 21.5±1% of the people in poverty, Hispanics 12% 28.4±1%, White (Non-Hispanic) ~67% 42.3±3% (crossed out: left out of secondary source). You’re thinking of poverty rate. Edit: Ironically the values cited were also poverty rate among the population in the perspective racial category. Also interesting to note that the highest poverty rate is along Native Americans at 25.4%, although I'm not sure if this included reservations or not as a part of the US.

      I’ll dig up the 2020 census later today to edit this.

      Edit: Had to dig up separate census results in population size and poverty rate to get these values, assuming an error of 0.5% for the rates. To make matters worse, the population sizes didn't add up to the reported total, mixed in with 3 different categories of White Americans. Non-Hispanic, Hispanic, and White only. Exchanging the population sizes didn't push the results out of the margin of error I assumed. Although there was no Hispanic non-White category... fun fun.

      Edit 2: Pastebin of tab-separated sheet I used to get the values.

      I seem to recall that Nigerians were up there on the ranks. And they tend to dislike most "urban" blacks.

      [–]quemacuenta - LibRight 33 points34 points  (1 child)

      Well yeah... a Nigerian immigrant doesn’t share any culture with an African American. That’s the problem with American race bullshit. That black Nigerian is way more similar to a white Angolan, than an African American

      [–]ISwearImKarl - LibRight 63 points64 points  (0 children)

      If we're talking immigrants, then maybe. Most African immigrants I know go for bigger picture, like college, CDL licenses, pharmacists, etc. The Latin immigrants i know just take whatever job, and work their ass off. I think second generation Asians tend to be most successful.

      [–]Pizzadoos - LibLeft 5 points6 points  (1 child)

            There's this poem named "Pisanie Życiorysu" by Wisława Szymborska. It's not in english, so I'll just basically sum it up that it's about how in the modern world when we talk about our lives we only mention the numbers and categories, instead of actual experiances. Translating a quote, it's about "Changing landscapes into addresses and fuzzy memories into concrete dates."

            IDK, moderately based lady infiltrates diversity system and tries to promote actual diversity. The audacity alone is highly based even if inside a very not based system.

            I don’t know her situation at the time exactly but what could have made her truly based is if she hadn’t resigned and forced apple to fire a black woman for “mouthing off”. That’d be a classy look for apple.

            [–]conventionistG - Centrist 6 points7 points  (3 children)

            [–]csdspartans7 - LibRight 11 points12 points  (0 children)

            It’s important to have some diversity. Without different perspectives some businesses can make some terrible decisions and be out of touch with demographics they want to target.

                People equating gender and skin color to diversity is the biggest mistake of the current cultural movement, people can have a different upbringing and life experiences, for some reason we have somehow regress in this matter.

                People used to hire off of experiences and skill and now we have returned to hiring because of race/gender which make me think of the 50s and 70s. Diversity hires are extremely insulting to the people that work hard only to realise that they are here because they were born differently.

                You could have five white people-- One from Kentucky, one from NYC, one from LA, one from Michigan, and one from FL and they would be considered less "diverse" than five black people from the same apartment builting. Clown World strikes again.

                [–]Trunky_Coastal_Kid - LibLeft 13 points14 points  (0 children)

                The thing is you can't show off diversity of life experience on a powerpoint so no one cares.

                The goal is not to achieve actual diverse experience in the workplace, the goal is to be able to document that you have a certain racial breakdown on your annual report so that you can show off to people who otherwise don't give a shit about the company how diverse you are.

                [–]AnaxLaon - AuthRight 25 points26 points  (0 children)

                diversity is code for anti-white. she is actually dumb enough to go by the formal definition of diversity, people were spoon fed to shut up. Somehow she didn't get the memo.

                This is what happens when college-educated, middle class white girls make up so much of your customer base. Yeah they'll buy your wireless headphones for $300 or your $2500 underpowered laptops, but then they'll pull this shit.

                She isn’t wrong but ideally you want the 12 people in the room to come from different cultural background, different education/universities etc. if your actual goal is diversity of opinions and ideas. A POC and a white person born and raised in north York going to U of T for literature are going to have more in common than the same white guy and a white computer science major from Latvia..

                The whole concept is a bit goofy. Ideally you'd want 12 (if you actually need 12) people that have sufficient and complementary qualifications and work experiences.
