Democratic Efforts for Diversity are an Evil Tool to Divide Us

Reevaluating Civil Rights: A Look at the Democratic National Committee's Approach to Diversity

Around 2019, the Democratic National Committee claimed to be pushing for increased diversity in its ranks. While this may seem like a noble goal, it's important to scrutinize the methods used to achieve it. Around that time an email was circulated announcing new job openings, with a clear message that straight, white males need not apply. This exclusion based on race and sexuality raises significant concerns.

This move, framed as a push for diversity, is inherently discriminatory. It blatantly bars certain individuals from opportunities based solely on their race, sexuality, and gender. It's worth mentioning that discrimination laws exist to prevent such practices. These laws were instituted to uphold the principles of equality and fairness, the very principles that the Civil Rights movement fought for.

The argument often made to justify such practices is that of diversity. However, excluding certain individuals to create diversity does not foster genuine inclusion. Instead, it fosters division and resentment. It perpetuates a cycle where one group is favored at the expense of another, as if getting even creates a win for anybody.

The question we need to ask is: Are these the values we want to uphold? If the Democratic National Committee can exclude straight, white males because they are the perceived majority, what does this mean for other organizations? Can colleges or businesses also exclude certain races or genders because they have achieved their quota? It’s happening.

This approach to diversity seems to have lost sight of what the Civil Rights movement stood for. The movement was not about replacing one form of discrimination with another. It was about judging people by the content of their character, not the color of their skin. It was about creating opportunities for all people rather than creating a perpetual cycle of discrimination.

Martin Luther King Jr. once said, "I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character." This dream seems to have been lost in the current push for diversity.

By focusing on physical characteristics, we risk losing sight of the individual. We risk undermining the principles of equality and fairness that the Civil Rights movement fought for. Instead of creating opportunities, we create divisions. Instead of fostering understanding, we foster resentment.

The Democratic National Committee’s approach to diversity raises questions about the party's policies. If this is the attitude within the administration of the party, how does that then transfer to the policies of the party?

Diversity has been framed to be a noble goal, in reality it’s a dangerous disconnect with reality. We must remember that at the end of the day, we all want the same things: safety, a roof over our heads, food on the table, freedom, liberty, and opportunity. And when we work together to create opportunities for anyone who wants to succeed, we all win.
