Diversity

Personally, I have a different interpretation of diversity than what is being peddled these days by “race hustlers” of all skin tones. From Black Lives Matter, to corporate media, Hollywood, sports celebrities, social media oligarchs, intellectuals, and corporations. Who all benefit from racial conflict to secure administrative jobs, charity management positions, academic jobs and advancement, or personal political entrepreneurship. But didn’t somebody once speak the truth that we should be judged on the content of our character and not of the colour of our skin. But if race has to be considered, which I don’t believe should be because that’s called discrimination of one over the other and racist, and tossing aside the ability of hiring the best qualified person for the job, then for a company of say one hundred employees to truly be diversified one would want to represent each race according to the only fair way to do it, by demographics.

So to be truly diversified in Canada (Oct.2020), your one hundred employees should include seventy-five white people, six Hindu/Sikh, five Chinese, three blacks, two Filipino, one Latin American, one Arabian, and seven other people representing all other races including Indigenous peoples. If you want to diversify by sex, half would be heterosexual females and half would be heterosexual males, with one to two people representing gays, lesbian or bisexual, and less than one person representing all other genders and sexual preferences.

For a company in the US (Dec.2019) to be truly diversified their one hundred employees would have to include sixty white people, nineteen Hispanics, twelve blacks, six Asians, one Hawaiian or American or Alaskan native, and three people representing all other races. As to sex, once again half would be heterosexual females and half heterosexual males. With two to three people identifying as gay, lesbian or bisexual and one person representing all other genders.
