    We have 18% of our workforce that is black, the fact that they are all from New Hampshire and speak Dutch is irrelevant.
    Exactly. Race is either non-existent, or it's wonderful, often simultaneously, in the eyes of the diversity fetishists, which cannot be. Either race should be taken into account, or it shouldn't. The problem with taking it into account is that once they decide that race makes a difference in how people should be treated, they've tacitly admitted the arguments of the segregationists. If it's acceptable to discriminate against one group in order to achieve a desired result, then it's okay to discriminate against another group to achieve a different desired result, the specifics don't matter, the principle is established. Thus, the clowns who argued that a "critical mass" of diversity makes for a better educational experience can be countered by those who claim that diversity undermines learning by imposing stresses in the classroom, and either argument can be "proven" with the right pseudo-science. The Progressives who fought for segregation used the same arguments as the Progressives who now fight for preferences.

    But it's not racist to them because progressives now use racism as "power+prejudice" i.e whites, because apparently no blacks or any other race has ever had power anywhere in the world.
