used to be a perfectly good and descriptive word which meant "variety". In
the 1990's the racial quota industry co-opted the term Diversity to have a
distinctly political, pro-quota meaning.
| What the racial
special interests specifically mean when they refer to Diversity is actually Forced
Diversity or Artificial Diversity, i.e., the hiring or admission of the
government-defined correct numbers of certain protected classes, i.e., supposedly
"disadvantaged" persons of color.
Thus, in context, Diversity (forced or artificial diversity) means "having
the government-approved number of each race, gender, and ethnicity" in your work
force or student body.
The racial special interests want you to believe that forced diversity (a.k.a. artificial
diversity) is a high-minded, inclusive concept denoting one, big, happy,
multi-ethnic, multi-racial, cooperative, tolerant family.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Look out when applying to an employer or a school that boasts "We value
diversity!" This is code for "we have an aggressive, pro-quota policy in
place to hire -- or admit -- the right number of each protected race, gender and ethnic
group." A careful reading of their affirmative action policy (a
government-required document which they are required to show you upon request) will reveal
the truth behind their diversity slogan.
Diversity ("forced diversity" or "artificial diversity" vs.
"voluntary, natural diversity") is defined strictly in terms of an official
government list of protected races and ethnicities.
is a truly awful outgrowth of forced / artificial diversity. Such training
is nothing more than dreary, guilt-ridden sensitivity training designed to properly
politically educate you about the value of forced / artificial diversity.
The content and style of such trainings varies widely, but the central theme is to sell
you on the dubious notion that forced / artificial diversity is in and of itself
a desirable thing. Some trainers attempt to convince you that forcibly
(artificially) diverse companies are happier more profitable places than voluntarily
diverse companies. But what they don't tell you is that voluntarily
diverse companies are harassed and fined by the government, and are subjected to
economic boycotts and lawsuits by the NAACP and other members of the quota industry.
(And by the way, there is little or no hard economic evidence that forcibly diverse
companies are more profitable in any sense than voluntarily diverse companies.)
In general, Adversity.Net strongly recommends that you do whatever is necessary to avoid Diversity
Training. Any excuse will do, such as breaking your leg or being in a
body cast at the time of the training. This may also be a good time to schedule that
major surgery you've been putting off.
Finally, in today's political climate, Diversity Training is almost exclusively a
political re-education process which attempts to sell a particular political agenda which
promotes forced diversity (i.e., racial quotas, i.e., artificial
diversity). As such it is completely inappropriate for an employer to subject
you to such propagandizing. However, if you want to keep you job you should use one
of the former excuses to not attend (broken leg, major surgery, etc.).
The Value of Forced /
Artificial Diversity: NONE! Forced / Artificial Diversity
for its own sake is absolutely without value. Well, OK, you can avoid a lot of
government harassment by being forcibly diverse, but that is hardly what we would
call a positive motivation.
Conversely, there is a great deal of value to treating all employees fairly and without
discrimination. This is not the same as forced diversity, however.
Forced Diversity vs.
Non-Discrimination: The two terms are totally unrelated! Non-discrimination
means treating everyone fairly without regard to race, gender or ethnicity.
Conversely, Diversity (Forced Diversity or Artificial Diversity) means
hiring or promoting based upon race, gender or ethnicity until your business has employed
the "right" numbers of each protected group as defined by the government.
Connerly Comments on the Politically Correct Definition of Diversity:
Connerly writes: If ever there was a term that makes me nauseous,
"diversity" is such a term. But, believe me, this term is more than
nauseating; it is dangerous. "Diversity" is the antithesis of merit.
The pursuit of
"diversity" by the government is legally sanctioned discrimination to achieve a
fuzzily defined quota that is known only to [educational] admissions officers and other
bureaucrats who want to play God with our lives.
"Diversity" makes a
mockery of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and it's command that the government treat all of us
equally "without regard" to the factors of race, gender and ethnicity.
"Diversity" is an excuse to discriminate.

Egalitarian, August/ September 2005, Volume 8, Issue 3.
