There seems to be reason to believe there wasn't a cause --> effect relationship between the presentation she gave, and her leaving the company, so I've renamed the thread to avoid reinforcing your misunderstanding or misrepresentation.

The 20-year Apple veteran, who previously served as the company’s head of worldwide human resources, later apologized for her remarks, telling the staff that they “were not representative of how I think about diversity or how Apple sees it.”

Smith will leave the company at the end of the year, TechCrunch reported. Taking over as VP of inclusion and diversity will be Christie Smith, who spent 17 years as a principal at Deloitte.


You don't find it suspicious that a 20 yr old apple veteran would decide to leave right after she makes a statement that apple doesn't like? She was "asked to resign" or politely fired.

If you had bothered to read the Techcrunch article that the New York Post had based its own article on, you would know that there is reason to believe that is not the case. Based on the article you posted, there is nothing to indicate that the writers of it did any independent research, and it is probable they simply re-wrote the Techcrunch article, but with a particular slant, implying things that, you will note, they never actually say in the article. Nowhere in the New York Post article do they indicate why she left the company.

Whites cant be diverse, we are just forced to.

I don't understand why people would think white people are diverse.

You know, just like when people from other countries step all over white people and start forcing things onto us as a cultural necessity for their day to day life, and being implemented into our lives as the diversification process.

White people are fucked like not mentally unstable ( I mean there are mentally unstable white people) but we are actually going to die out as a race really soon.

Its only a matter of time before resources and currency trumps humanity, and we are in the process already.

White people are funny though, because they don't consider that cultural difference to be limiting to their outlook. Why do you think most comedians are white, most actors. Granted there are many black comedians, but they seem to own a different persona based on their cultural difference, and the same applies to other cultures and race.

Can I be diverse?

No, I can't. I can be accepting of a culture, but I cant be diverse.

There are many things I would love to accept in my life, but given the nature of who I am I simply cannot be integrated into a society that forces me to ultimately change my balance in the way I deal with things.

I would love to travel places, and I would love to interact with different cultures, and I would respect that as a way of life for most people, but the bottom line.

White people cant be diverse, and this is coming from a white person.

When I'm 50 or something, and I tell someone my life, there is no foundation for diversity. I'm an average White man with specific ties to cultures I don't even care about. I enjoy the fact that people can have a foundation built from diversity, but I'm not one of them.

Maybe down the road we will see what kind of lifestyle I am best suited for, skies the limit
