Every car company has to have a vice president of diversity. They know little about cars, but a lot about filling quotas. From Eric Peters on a guest post at theburningplatform.com:
They used to hire mainly engineers to work at car companies. Where they used to mainly design and build cars.
Now they have vice presidents of diversity.
At least, GM does.
A guy named Eric Peterson (no relation to this writer) just resigned the gig, where he worked with the National Association of Minority Automobile Dealers, whose president lauded Peterson as a “champion” and a “trailblazer” for “diversity.”
Translation: He used race guilt to pressure GM into making special accommodations for dealerships owned by non-whites.
And, of course, women.
Skin color (and genitalia) rather than the “content of their character” being the decisive factor.
Peterson says that “…people are the most important resource we have” and that “(we) should nurture and develop them to their maximum potential.”
The problem – one of them – with “diversity” is that it doesn’t mean everyone regardless of color or sex doing their thing, no one hassling anyone because of their color or sex. A merit-based system. That skin color and sex become non-issues.
It really means: Focusing on – obsessing about – race and genitalia; assigning preferred status to certain races and those with one set of genitals (but never the other).
Other races (and the male sex) need not apply.
But they’d better genuflect.
Maybe they ought to put a sign outside to let ’em know We Don’t Serve Whitey Here.

Bull Connor did not pretend to a “diverse” mindset. He preferred whites and preferred to avoid blacks. Like him or not, he was a straight shooter. The Diversity Mongers, in contrast, peddle the same thing (in reverse) without owning up to their race (and genitalia) obsessions. But what else is it when everything is based on race and sex?
On certain races – and just one of the two sexes?
It’s the Hapsburg Empire all over again. A polyglot society held together – barely – by fictional notions of colorblindness as a skein over very real race-and-genitalia based official/legal preferences – enforced by very real bayonets.
And we know what happened to the Hapsburg Empire… right?
Most white males – I know lots of them – don’t harbor any animosity toward blacks (or women, whether white or black) because they’re black or female and certainly aren’t interested in harming them on account of those things. They are open to doing business with – or being friends with – pretty much anyone.
But they chafe at the racial-sexual double standard that says it’s ok to actively discriminate against (and disparage) them simply because they are white (and male) while on the other hand, they must accept with a smile race-and-genitalia-based based preferential treatment of women and “minorities” (not infrequently less competent) or expect to be called “racists” (and “sexists”) for objecting.
Guys like Peterson have made a living off this.
