Diversity and inclusion is the moral benchmark of our time Every corporation, college, and government agency, along with a growing number of bowling leagues and bait-and-tackle shops, has an Office of Diversity and Inclusion. So says William Voegeli in a recent article. And so says the University of California at Los Angeles, whose campus-wide Vice Chancellor for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion earned (or at least, was paid) some $444,000 in 2016. UCLA is not alone in assigning overwhelming importance to diversity and inclusion.
Bias in favor of or against an individual simply because of his or her race or ethnicity is morally wrong. When bias is government policy, the outcome is also invariably bad. Neither morality nor Machiavelli favors group preferences, as distinguished black economist Thomas Sowell argued in an 18,000-word 1989 article.
In this country, group preferences have existed as affirmative action, which Sowell declared A worldwide disaster. In countries as diverse as Nigeria, Australia, India and Indonesia, biases labeled positive discrimination, standardization, sons of the soil and reflecting the federal character of the country have all led to controversy, disorder, and even bloodshed.
Nearly thirty years later, Sowells prediction has come true for the US. There is less talk in the US these days about affirmative action, partly because of legal prohibitions in a few states, but mainly because it has been replaced by the apparently benign objectives of diversity and inclusion. It may turn out that the rise of diversity marked the end of the golden age of affirmative action comments Kelefa Sanneh in a recent New Yorker piece.
What does D&I mean for the proper function of the university? It sounds good, but what does it mean in practice?

What it means is that opinions that are Divergent from the Politically Correct will never be Included with extreme prejudice. It only sounds good to idiots and would be tyrants.
Diversity and inclusion is synonymous for decline and incompetence.
Diversity is conformity by force.
Diversity in a nutshell means chasing down the last White person.
Diversity is genocide.
...Diversity is an anti-religion, and anti-ideology, a nepotism which promotes everything except one's own family.
Diversity therefore equals the destruction of any and all religions and of all positive ideologies.
Because Diversity can only be destructive: whatever IS is insufficiently or inexactly diverse.
Whatever IS must therefore be destroyed in order to make it MORE Diverse.
And there is no conceivable or measurable end to it. Yesterday's Diversity is today's intolerable lack of Diversity.
Diversity is the destruction of Good; and it is the destruction of all types of Good - however defined. All are chewed up and spat out by Diversity.
Diversity is the promotion of chaos by the destruction of Good; and then there-naming of chaos as Good.
Most Americans instinctively know that so called ‘diversity’ and multiculturalism is not a strength. Particularly when the reality of almost all of this race crap is one way. It is used as a weapon against white Western culture and countries. It is destructive and certainly not a unifier.

I like the James Martin Center and the work they do.
But that article needs a rewrite in order to be ready for “prime time”. The prose does not flow easily. Many readers will give up after the early paragraphs.
It should be spelled DIEversity
