There are times that race matters. Being "color blind" is as bad as being racist, as it just enforces the status quo. Yeah, I know, you're saying I'm as bad as the racists and I'm saying you're as bad as the racists and it comes across as me echoing you, but I've seen your posting history here and, honestly, I'm pretty certain you prefer white people, so I'm done even talking to you and your horrible, unrealistic ideas that probably often strike you as "real" due to it being "race realism." At the very least you feel white people are the most persecuted in America and have it the hardest.

Sure why actually confront your own conflicting statements when you can vaguely dismiss him. We'll just all pretend you weren't a massive hypocrite.

What's conflicting? His post doesn't spell it out, and his posting history is full of white panic. The fact remains that being black in America leads to drastically different experiences. Is that right? No. Is it true? Yes. And if your company needs the perspective of black people, being all white won't help. Period.

Ironic ad hominem (a sure sign of defeat), coming from someone whose posting history is full of collectivist racialism. Dodge all you want, the only difference between your ideas and Stormfront is that they admit they are being racist. Your fart-sniffing airs of noblesse oblige just mask your internal certainty that the poor POCs out there need your protection. See how easy it is to assign motives to those you disagree with (the difference is that mine almost certainly hits closer to the mark)?

If you want to pursue cultural and/or experiencial diversity, then I'm all for it. When you simplistically (and racistly) assert that such diversity is simply a matter of skin color, then you have gone beyond the pale. Asians can't experience poverty? Hispanics can't experience urban blight and discrimination? White people can't know what it's like to be visible minorities? That's what you are asserting when you limit your hiring to black applicants based on your logic. If you are looking for bigotry, I'm sure there's a mirror nearby...
