Text 19 Sep 1 note The “Diversity” Problem

Trying to add more “diversity” to your staff, board, or event without addressing equity in a serious manner is like Ted Turner colorizing B&W classics - there might be a broader palette, but the plot still remains the same. 

That’s like having more markers in a box that’s design to hold crayons - until we change the underlying institutions and policies, we’ll continue to have major disparities. Saying that the election of a black president signifies the end to racism as a major social problem is like saying we should stop building more accessibility into our infrastructure since FDR was president (do some consider handicap parking to be reverse-discrimination against the able-bodied?).

Some progress has been made, but the institutionalized racism that is still present in our society is no less pernicious. Diversity is useless if there’s no real inclusion, if it doesn’t present social equity. After all, India, under British rule did not have a “diversity” problem. They had a white supremacy problem.

The United States still has laws on its books from the McCarthy era, Florida still has anti-Asian and immigrant statues in its constitution, we have inequity in every sector of this country. The face of racism has changed in this country. Even though we’re more “diverse,” we still have a long way to go.
