Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

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.

"There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blond men in a room and they're going to be diverse too because they're going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation," the inaugural diversity chief said.

"Diversity is the human experience," she said, according to Quartz. "I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT."

Of course she is right, but the left once again demonstrates their hatred for anyone who thinks for themselves and does not go along with the herd.

Apple was smart to can her.

Apple has some business practices that put them on par with, say, Wal Mart.

Yet, apple knows that if they cowtow to SJW Progressiveness it buys them a pass.

It's kind of like buying insurance or, more accurately, purchasing indulgences from the Catholic Church.

Ms. Smith's (black woman) commonsense approach flies in the face of the progressive SJW definition of "diversity".

"Diversity" for this faction of the left is all about physical qualities (skin color, gender, etc).

It's also about uniformity of thought.

It's the essence of illiberalism, but it's what sells to the SJW Progressives who so dominate the MSM, academia and pop culture.

So, she had to go.

"So, she had to go."

I'm guessing though, that she left with lots, and lots, and lots of money.

But you're right. Apple may be most popular amongst the SJW crowd. No reason to isolate them during the Festivus season.

I'm... pretty sure that Europe is pretty diverse when it comes to things like language and culture. Sure, most Europeans only have two sexes and one skin color, but still....

But hey, at least they won't be racist or sexist anymore under the Caliphate.

SJW is the wrong acronym, and proper noun.

Social Destruction Warriors is what they should be called.

"Of course she is right"

In a way she is right, but when companies speak of diversity, they're specifically speaking to race and gender. Not "diversity of which Ivy League schools our white men went to."

Speaking of which, she is heading to Cornell.

Her comment was poorly worded.
