Diversity for the sake of diversity can only get you a certain distance. Equal opportunities and setting level-playing-fields is what will ensure that more non-whites develop the needed skillset to make it into one of those lists.

And additional measures will ensure that those who have the required skills won’t be overlooked due to bias.

By the way, the house freedom caucus are made up of libertarian and conservatives republicans. Do you think that any member of the legislature branch wanted to join, that the house freedom caucus would deny based on race??

Support* M1 more POC’s need to know (earlier on) how and when they can get there and how to succeed in those positions as they are applying, once they get there, and as they are enacting change.

True on that OP, which is why just throwing in legislation to mandate certain representations without true change to mentalities isn’t helpful. Still don’t know what the best solution is for this. In Singapore they realized they had no Malay president ever before so they made a law that says one should be elected just because. So now there’s finally a female Malay president. But it’s only because no other ethnicity was allowed to run. I can’t see something like that being the solution either - it’s a smack in the face for a Malay person.

Sounds about white!

I agree with you on diversity but I’m pretty sure those stats are cherry picked / bias to some degree.

It’s disappointing you both feel the need to minimize the black experience through this time but exemplifies the struggle quite nicely. These are Americans who are not excelling in mass, from birth, because of systemic issues that some immigrants do not experience when they arrive. It’s an issue that in a developed country, their country, one group is consistently targeted, marginalized, and not supported with the same care as their counterparts from birth. It’s a different struggle

And the worst run cities in America are all run by Democrats and they always will be - if you rally want to fix decaying inter cities why keep electing the same corrupt government over and over - it’s like charter schools - a number of studies have shown that the biggest beneficiaries of charter schools are poor minority students but the Democrats do everything in their power to stop these - seems like the only way to solve some of these problems is to think outside the box

Does anyone have a recommendation for the best way to respond to "Well, how many people does this *really* affect?" from a stakeholder? This "Marketer" mindset needs to change, and I know my tone immediately changes for the worse when I hear this response. My most recent answer: "It doesn't matter; it only takes one person to file a claim." That was a knee-jerk reaction; I don't want to make it about the backstop the law provides. It's about inclusion informing better experiences for everyone.
