    At least they'll call themselves on it.

    Self awareness is the first step to solving any personal or internal problem.

    Confusing self-awareness with self-loathing is a recipe for stagnantion.

    You don't have to hate what you want to improve.

    You forgive yourself, let go of the worst of your nature, and move on.

    well they don't want the donald insulting a latino or other non white. I am surprised they allow women since they could be groped. but we will see far more white people in trumps group then anything else.

    I wonder if it ever occurred to them that their "diversity" initiatives are actually racist by nature since they're based on the assumption that people think differently because of their skin color. Putting everyone in a box and telling them that they should think a certain way, based on how they're categorized is ridiculous. Assuming that all groups of people are some kind of hive mind and think alike isn't even rational.

    I think the idea that a bunch of white upper/upper-middle class people can understand all of humanity is pretty ****ing arrogant.

    And no it isn't all about skin colour. Hell I wouldn't say skin colour is even the most important criteria.

    So, let me give you a scenario and you tell me what is more "diverse".

    A white guy and a black guy from the same neighborhood vs. two white guys, one from the US while another from Portugal.

    So is the qualification of a communications degree gonna take a back seat to making sure Lachandra gets a job to ease their anxiety? This idea that we have to have X whites, X blacks, X Hispanic, X handicap, X women, X gay/transgender is ridiculous. Maybe black people don't give a **** about being reporters? What are they going to do start plucking people off the streets in Harlem so their diversity numbers are such that everyone can sleep well at night while their publication goes further in the toilet?

    When liberals judge diversity they are only looking at your skin and your sexual preference.

    That's essentially what they are telling the tech industry, hire less qualified individuals or we will hang you on your diversity numbers.

    And what do non-liberals look at when they are judging diversity?

    They judge the business on its productivity and returns just like everyone else.

    Well it seems prudent to hire a bunch of minorities and pay them less. Or are we not counting labor costs now?

    Assuming that minorities would be paid less is racist. Please stop spreading this racist garbage.

    Pointing to stats by race to make a generalization isn't racist, assuming an individual gets paid less because they are black is.

    Assuming what they are taught by their parents because they are black, is as well.

    You can assume that a large amount of their demographic aren't being taught by the fact that they aren't following the law, that's the point. You could also propose this is caused by 70% of them growing up in a one parent household. You could also look at attendance rates for black kids in school and say where the **** are the parents.

    Over 90% of murders are committed by males.

    By your logic, our parents failed to teach us how to follow the law.
