she is likely referring to things such as university admission decisions, where they try to make the student body as diverse as possible, regardless of their academic achievement. there are certain pros and cons to enforcing a quota on how many students of a given race is admitted (a Stanford study showed that Asians were effectively penalized, requiring far greater SAT scores, while blacks and hispanics needed a lower SAT score. from what i recall, a C+ score would be good enough for the minority to be admitted, while Asians would need to get an A in the same test to have a fighting chance)

One of the myths is that, Diversity targets for positions result in hiring unqualified people just to meet quota. That if you just hire "the most qualified people" that should be enough.

It's a myth that ignores a couple of realities
1) There are plenty of qualified people who can fill those diversity targets, so there "risk of getting an unqualified person to fill the slot" are minimal.
2) There are frequent unconscious bias that put people from visible minorities behind others despite the fact that they are just as qualified. Diversity Targets are simply a way of evening the playing field.

diversity is good with the apparent exception of political diversity (or that is what google says according to a lawsuit filled by conservatives at google)



The most jaw-dropping allegation is that "Google publicly endorsed blacklists" of conservatives. The suit claims that several hiring managers publicly vowed not to hire people categorized as "hostile voices" — aka conservatives.

I agree.

Eating the same thing everyday gets boring, you need to diversify every so often

if we all looked, talked and acted the same there's probably a word for that. other than robot of course. and being forced into a set pattern there's a strong word for that. there's nothing at all wrong with diversity, along with mixing diversity even further. what is wrong however is when anyone at all is stupid, lazy or brainwashed into believing that people should be hated for this or that. it's a shame that year after year there are figures who pop up dividing the people into the illusion that separation and the likes is good and that people should stick with their own kind, one race works better than the other... there are some pretty sick minds out there, I've encountered way too much and it's a shame really. I'm only hopeful that the lack of shutting oneself in causing social anxiety to the roof, also turning off empathy and humanity that it might finally break the notion that we're all one race, that people look past division differences and look at the person and judge them on the content of their heart, after all, as long as we socially interact it seems we'll always be sucked into "hating" them for something. history has shown this over and over again.

Introduce yourself to different cultures through food.

Thats the best way to come together, through good food, and common ground.

That depends. In most cases yes, but if I go into a barber shop and see nothing but white women I’m gonna turn around and leave. Tried it once and they fucked my shit up real talk.

But in most case I agree 100%.
