DEI Needs to DIE, And Take ESG With It


We have lost our ability to judge people on their unique character. We now reduce an individual’s identity to the number of boxes they check on a diversity, equity, and inclusion grid. DEI and ESG scores have replaced accomplishments and experience. Check the right boxes, or you do not get the job, and your credit score suffers. Merit no longer means a thing in the new world order.

About thirty years ago, I was enjoying the Esplanade on a beautiful Saturday afternoon in Boston. The city was unusually busy, and many other folks had a different party look to them. Colorful costumes and various degrees of undress were the dress of the day, and that was for the men. As I crossed the Arthur Fiedler Bridge, I found the source of the excitement. I was right smack in the middle of the Boston Gay Pride Parade. It was tantamount to Carnivale in Brazil. This festival was a celebration and proclamation of homosexuality. This has always been a conundrum for me. Why do people with particular lifestyles want equality, yet they must publicly showcase their decisions? There is no logic, and they obviously want it both ways.

There are other examples of this duplicity. Here we are in June, designated Pride Month, a celebration of the LGBTQIA+ lifestyles, first recognized in New York in 1969. We also have months for:

  • February. Black History Month.
  • March. Women’s History Month.
  • May. Asian Pacific American Heritage Month.
  • June. LGBTQ+ Pride Month.
  • September 15 – October 15. Hispanic Heritage Month.
  • October. National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
  • November. Native American Heritage Month.

Where are the Italian History, Caucasian History, and Heterosexual Pride Months? I ask that with tongue in cheek because I do not want to see those designations, but I also want to see the end of the existing celebrations. As we strive for equality, we need to celebrate life for everyone every day. No group should be isolated for any reason.

Democrats love to refer to America as systemically racist. Most of us on the Right do not believe that. Promoting that belief is monetarily beneficial for some as it becomes the reason for their existence IE Reverend Al Sharpton is such a person. For the last few years, since the unfortunate death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, the Left has shown reverence for the Black Lives Matter movement to the extent they painted the BLM logo on main streets in major cities. This group has moved into our education administrations to push DEI on students and ensure indoctrination and not education for our children. An example of how well this has worked is Marlin High School, located in rural Texas. The senior graduation was abruptly canceled when it was determined that only five of the thirty-three “graduates” could actually read. Marlin is a small sample and an extreme example, not unlike the stats from big cities like Baltimore and Chicago. We need to stop teaching DEI and get back the Three Rs.

We are setting up cultural wars in the workplace and our children for failure in their futures. This Left Wing move to change our society to one based on DEI and ESG has to die in the boardroom and school boards. We need more reality and fewer acronyms in our lives; there is no acronym for happiness or success.

  1. This is right from the communist playbook by russia , china and north korea. Get us fighting from within and watch how fractured the country becomes. The play here is the colleges and high schools which at this point leave a lot to be desired as far as what they’re teaching. We have some of the worst test scores in the world but these teachers don’t care. They have lost the will to teach and it’s easier to brainwash kids to think like them – brain dead, inept liberals.
