The Market Is Rejecting Critical Race Theory
The radical left and others are pushing the belief that the American people want more critical race theory-inspired programs like DEI. DEI stands for diversity, equity, and inclusion.
But a new report out shows that businesses are really not valuing these types of programs. In the current wave of business layoffs, employees who work in the DEI space are being laid off more than other types of employees.
From The Blaze:
A recent study revealed that companies are cutting diversity, equity, and inclusion roles at a higher rate than other jobs. As a result, DEI workers flocked to social media to complain about the trend and claim their positions are vital to workplace equity, Fox News Digital reported.
A report from Revelio Labs published earlier this month revealed a “disproportionate impact of layoffs on DEI professionals” and higher employee turnover.
“Attrition rates for DEI roles have outpaced those of non-DEI roles at more than 600 US companies that laid off workers since late 2020, and have accelerated quickly in the last 6 months,” the report stated.
Companies that had layoffs in 2022 terminated DEI roles at a 33% rate versus a 21% rate for other positions.
According to the Revelio Labs report, Amazon, Twitter, and Nike cut between five and 16 DEI workers each in the last six months.
The DEI employees and others in the field are claiming that they’re important. But it is clear that American businesses clearly do not agree. They’re asking themselves the same thing most normal people are asking, do really need more preachers of the antiracism cult on a company’s payroll?
If you’re a normal person, it gets even better. The professional race hustlers who preach the antiracism cult to companies are having a hard time picking up business now. Apparently, companies and others don’t want to hire them to give seminars anymore.
In a since-deleted Twitter post, equity strategist Minda Harts wrote, “I had over 30 speaking engagements last Feb. This month 5. It’s insane how things have just been cut. Tell me that you care about your Black and Brown employees w/out telling me you care. How can you solve this… make equity all year around… You can’t make equity optional.”
Harts slammed companies for the DEI layoffs and urged them to “recommit” to fostering equitable workplaces because employees “need safe spaces,” which she claimed is “tied to productivity.”
Dr. Jenn M. Jackson, an assistant professor at Syracuse University and self-proclaimed abolitionist, replied, “This resonates. My engagements are much lower this year. And, I think it’s important to pay attention to who is getting paid to talk about race right now: white women.”
Jackson accused “a lot of white women” of “taking up space giving ‘diversity and inclusion’ talks.”
Author and speaker Karen Catlin replied to Harts, “Speaking of March … March 8 is International Women’s Day. It’s less than 3 weeks away. 2023 will be the first time in many years that I won’t have a speaking engagement.”
When given the chance, the market will reject critical race theory and all of its offshoots. In an increasingly diverse country, there really is nothing beneficial about people who want us to focus more on race instead of moving towards a race-neutral society.
To expect businesses to spend money in a possible economic downturn towards something as irrelevant towards the company’s bottom line as DEI is the height of arrogance. In fact, these people would not be employable without this nonsense.
When given the chance the market will decide against the various cultural aggressions of the radical left. Which is why they want to try and prevent that from happening.
