So you’re saying diversity isn’t a strength? [Big Tech Layoffs Are Hitting Diversity and Inclusion Jobs Hard: Companies that made promises to hire more underrepresented groups are gutting departments meant to achieve those goals., Bloomberg, January 24, 2023]:
At Twitter, the diversity, equity and inclusion team is down to just two people from 30, one former employee said. A DEI worker who was let go from a popular ride-share company said their job search has stalled as other technology companies assess their finances. And just before getting the axe at separate tech giants this fall, two DEI specialists said leadership had stopped setting long-term goals for their departments entirely.
The layoffs sweeping the technology industry are gutting diversity and inclusion departments, threatening company pledges to boost underrepresented groups in their ranks and leadership.
Listings for DEI roles were down 19% last year — a bigger decline than legal or general human resources jobs saw, according to findings from Textio, which helps companies create unbiased job ads. Only software engineering and data science jobs saw larger declines, at 24% and 27%, respectively.
Bloomberg News identified DEI professionals who lost their jobs in recent weeks at Amazon.com Inc., Meta Platforms Inc., Twitter Inc. and Redfin Corp. Many said they expect their responsibilities will go to former colleagues who remain or to employee resource groups, which often don’t get compensated for that work.
A spokesperson for Amazon said the company’s DEI priorities haven’t changed and the company remains committed to its goals. A Redfin spokesperson said the company has invested in growing its DEI team since 2021, and despite a recent layoff the group is larger than it was at the start of 2022. A representative for Meta declined to comment.
“I’m cautiously concerned — not that these roles will go to zero but that there will be a spike in ‘Swiss army knife’ type roles,” meaning more DEI professionals will be spread thin as they take on additional job functions, said Textio Chief Executive Officer Kieran Snyder. The phenomenon isn’t likely limited to tech, either, as layoffs hit other parts of the economy. Last year, companies announced plans to cut over 363,000 jobs, up 13% from 2021.
Recent years have seen a diversity and inclusion hiring boom. After Black Lives Matter protests in 2020, organizations of all stripes made promises to boost gender and racial diversity in their ranks. Dozens brought in their first ever Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officers. In the three months after George Floyd’s murder, DEI job postings jumped 123%, according to data from jobs site Indeed.
Now, just as tech companies had started to make progress, they’re scaling back those teams before fully meeting goals or creating workforces that look like the broader US population. Meta Chief Diversity Officer Maxine Williams warned last summer that cost cutting would slow its diversity hiring efforts.
“Cutting DEI oriented staff now, unless you’ve made really progress and can say ‘mission accomplished’ is not a good look,” said Angie Kamath, dean at the NYU School of Professional Studies, who focuses on workforce development. “There are some real risks.”
In some cases, companies might even backslide, said Monne Williams, an Atlanta-based partner at McKinsey & Company.
So it turns out diversity, equity and inclusion isn’t truly important to Silicon Valley companies. Is diversity a strength?
I guess those jobs were useful in 2020 when big capital waved BLM banner to hurt Trump.
Beattie is right here:
a) to the surprise of some, the diversity hirees were a waste of salary and did not do useful work. They even caused irritation among employees that are actually qualified
the truth must not be told by the PC gag order! It is not permissible to report about weaknesses of NAM (non Asian minority) “minority”
b) they companies don’t have extra money to burn and waste
As Jared Taylor mentioned,
NOBODY except us renegade race realists is aware that DEI is IMPOSSIBLE due to underperformance of Blacks.
Even if they were intellecfftually qualified, work ethics and criminality would still be a problem.
Of course, the overrepresentation of Asian minorities is alwo a problem that cannot be explained by the normally braiwashed and misinformed people
They could switch negroid Blacks for dark skinned “black” Indians.
I’d point out that the United States became the leading global industrial power in the late 19th to early 20th century, the same era when segregation was the de facto if not de jure law of the land. You give White people free run of a continent, you build a great country.
Consider that since the civil rights revolution of the mid-20th century the US has seen a precipitous decline in its industrial base, not to mention the destruction of numerous formerly industrial cities (Detroitification). If nothing else, the massive numbers of affirmative action hires have degraded efficiency in every business it overwhelms. You also have to look at the huge amount of academic resources which are dumped down rat holes like grievance “studies” programs, and the self-deception to keep up the Potemkin facade.
The country which once built the Transcontinental Railroad and Hoover Dam can not even get a rail line from Los Angeles to Fresno nor keep the water running in Jackson, MS.
You remove White people from the equation, it all reverts to the wilderness.
The whole DEI schtick is unimportant beyond its value as large corporate virtue signalling.
Diversity is apparently the desire to have the same proportions in one’s employees as appears to exist in broader society. It has never been successfully explained WHY this is considered a good thing, particularly when you consider how self-destructive the wider society has recently become, spiralling out of control in the last 60 or so years.
Diversity is not even on the table for consideration when a privately owned and operated employer assesses the best candidate for the position offered, Only large corporations (you know, the kind with public shareholders) have the ability to hire a candidate who is not the best, just for the sake of virtue signalling.
Equity. Put simply, this is equality of outcomes – not equality of talent. It refuses to countenance merit, hard work or innovation. It is the vapid, immoral heart of socialism.
Inclusion is a feel-good extension of the “every child wins a prize!” mindset. Removal of goals, incentives, and the innate need to strive harder.
There is no wonder that DEI is the first to go when things start to get tough…
Speaking of jobs being cut, it appears the Memphis TN police have sacked a sixth officer over his involvement in the Tyre Nichols case.
Of course, it’s only because he’s White, as the five perps all looked too similar simians in the news reports. Throw a Whitey into the mix, stat!
The problem is the diversities are only ever really employable as
diversity officers/coordinators/promoters – the cat is chasing its tail while
becoming an increasing pain in the pooter.
The emerging solution will be to hire a Black! tranny lesbian for Maximum Wokemon
and put up with it as the tax it is (the problem of shielding the White female staff remains though).
Given his proclivities, how many tech companies would have hired George Floyd?
You mean DEI people might have to stop discriminating against whites and do actual work doing “additional job functions”.
All DEI jobs are non-productive and increase company overhead rates which makes their products and services more expensive. A racially diverse work force in no way leads to greater efficiency and production because of the supposedly unique perspectives each group brings to a company.
This is yet another of the many contradictions in multiracial propaganda. We’re all the same but each group has “unique perspectives”. We’re all the same but we must celebrate our differences. America is awash in (((Soviet))) sloganeering.
As usual, reality wins out. It just takes a lot longer than it should.
Normally I feel sorry for anyone losing their job, but reading between the lines, I get the feeling these DIE jobs are nothing but make work slots created for no reason other than appearances. There is also the fact that I cannot summon any personal empathy for any Internet workers, given their double standards of censorship. Oh what the hell, at the risk of appearing heartless I’m happy they’re out of work! Screw ’em.
Maybe the moral panic and mass hysteria are starting to recede. Things will still be bad, but slightly less crazy.
I wonder how much James Damore got in his out-of-court settlement when google cancelled him from the tech industry and converted him into a programmer going his own way.
A skoo in nu yawk is in trouble for serving chicken and waffles and a slice of watermelon on the 1st day of Black Hist’ry Mumph!
My God, what a crisis. What an inestimable loss.
Cutting jobs of people who exclusively ensure that the mediocre and incompetent are hired.
Hilarious! I’d wager if the students were polled (other than picaninny honore Santiago) as to whether they’d prefer chicken, waffles & watermelon or cheesesteak, broccoli & fresh fruit, it’s virtually a guarantee the former would win in a landslide.
Well made chicken & waffles with real maple syrup and a bourbon on the rocks is delicious and my go to brunch order. Thanks to international commerce, and industrial agriculture, fruits and vegetables can be enjoyed year round, not just “in season”. Claiming to be offended by a non offensive food is just grasping at straws.
On the other hand, the school should have been serving magic stew made from Albino human meat, mosquito patties, and mud cookies, if they wanted to really celebrate the start of black history month.
DEI/DIE jobs add absolutely no value to the bottom line at any company. All it does is add unnecessary labor costs so companies can virtue signal and boost their non-white employment percentages somewhat. The people that work in DIE jobs typically can’t do regular work because they lack the work ethic and/or intelligence that real jobs might require. The presence of DIE people also angers and demoralizes many white employees and some purposely become less productive.
The same clownish CEOs who extoll the virtues of racial diversity and DIE are themselves surrounded by white staff and underlings, live in gated almost all white neighborhoods and send their kids to racially exclusive private schools. Not unlike the federal judges who struck down racial segregation and imposed forced busing of white and blacks by judicial diktat.
DEI meet ROI……..an employee needs to earn for the company , stocks need to earn for the shareholders ……DEI sucks the life blood out of companies like ticks suck the life blood out of cattle ……both need to be run through the dip occasionally.
In my job, if I found out someone had promotion over me for diversity, I would be very angry. My private company as far as I know measures promotion through attendance and results via an algorithm. Some Somalians were employed. They were great comedians but broke all the rules and have all disappeared.
Perhaps you mean Jordan Walker. He took the knee to say sorry for his Pfizer company manufacturing viruses. George Floyd did not go beyond porn videos and security guard. George in his porn videos which I watched for two minutes did act and look like Jordan in his Veritas video.
A couple of years ago, I was on a tech company website and there was a lead in video extolling the virtues of some jogger who had the important sounding title of “personnel engineer”. I recall thinking WTF is that? Then I of course realized it’s a jogger we’re talking about here and it all makes sense – kinda like the shiny things they’re so enamored with…
Raccoon————-These companies shedding “vibrant’ diversity should observe a moment of silence for the departing,……………and then throw one hell of a party.
Lancelot_Link————–I would have loved to partake in fried chicken,waffles,and a slice of watermelon at my high school. We were served a peculiar type of BBQ chicken. Years later,i found out that the BBQ sauce consisted of ketchup and sugar. The school got those items for free.
Hilarious. Blacks are the only people so oversensitive that they’re outraged by people pointing out that they like certain foods.
There are a few (unfortunately very few) smart blacks out there. I work in tech so I’ve met some of them. They’d do well under any circumstances but with diversity hiring, they’re the most valuable commodity out there.
They also are responsible for college tuition being much more expensive. IIRC the University of Michigan has 93 employees in its DIE department.
Not to mention the additional cost of woke diversity departments for “African Studies”, “Women’s Studies” snd other whatever “Studies departments” , and more BIPOC diversity staff in administration and teaching in general.
The US federal government is even worse, as are state, county, and local governments. I was reading a story about HUD, and the head people puctured were all negroes Affirmatively Advancing Fair Housing (more diversity in white areas ala Obama-Holder.) In fact most of the Federal government is BIPOC and Jewish. Much of government at the state, county, and especially city levels is now black. And there are more black officials and politicians than ever.
The USSA is transitioning from Black Run America (BRA) already bad enough to America Run by Blacks (ARB) and getting increasingly closer to being the United Socialist States of New South Africa.
The cultural Marxism that now dominates us doesn’t care about individual success or a strong economy or thriving companies. It’s goal is to make Whites subordinate to non-whites and to turn White Western Christian civilization on its head. It will implement a system where the warped insane way of thinking called social justice rules us. It will destroy the entire country and culture if necessary to achieve its goals. You won’t stop it politically because it controls the institutions and the money. I cannot imagine what comes out the other end when they are finished.
How “woke” sick is this country becoming?
What do you think of this mud shark 🦈?
Curse, this has to be the Hoardest Honkee in America (HHIA).
In other words, they hired scads of black people for diversity’s sake after the George Floyd riots, and are letting them go now that the furor has passed.
Sounds good. Now can we get rid of the non-stop array of blacks in TV commercials and doing radio voiceovers?
Also, can we get rid of the radio stations that run the vapid “Black Information Network” and return them to the oldies music format?
If so, thanks in advance.
Chicken and waffles is Pennsylvania Dutch.
“George Floyd did not go beyond porn videos and security guard.”
Don’t forget his criminal history! Robbery, counterfeiting and such. You really sell the man short! Don’t forget his freakish multi-state funeral procession, dedication of statues in his likeness and all-around dedication to being the living stereotype many try to claim don’t exist.
Good night sweet prince, rest in power “Floored George”! May nobody, and I mean nobody forget his great dedication to a largely criminal lifestyle.
For years this has been a growing problem, people hired for no other reason than you need someone with that title. They not only do NOT add to the profitability of a company, they are a net loss.
Reality has to rear its ugly head eventually and it seems now it has.
I envision a software for the DIE folks, “BusyWork Software”. It would generate tons of pointless graphs, charts and stats that make no sense as well as automated email blasts that sprain a rotator cuff patting themselves on the back for all the great things they’ve done. The slogan would be, “Never have so many done so little for so few”
Hell, to hear the way some of them talk, didn’t the orcs “invent” “Chicken & Waffles”?! At least, in their minds. Nevermind the fact that someone else domesticated the chicken thousands of years ago, and it was imported into Africa. I’m sure someone else came up with the concept of a deep-fryer. I doubt they invented the waffle, either.
Yet, I’ve actually heard the argument go around that if wypipo eat chicken & waffles, that’s cultural appropriation! Just like every other thing they get credit for “inventing”, it’s inevitably some other culture, or combination of cultures, that did all the heavy work. They just show up late to the party, ook and eek, and voila, “We Dun Made Dis!”
That skank may be in line for some whoop ass in the not-too-distant future. She done be takin da bull’s apehood away.
“You may drive out nature with a pitchfork, yet she’ll be constantly running back.”
Mark in BC—————I worked as a line foreman at one company.I was threatened by HR for producing a 3 month graph on one sheboon. Oddly enough,every time she was out with a sick headache, digestive upset,or “fambly” emergency; we produced 4 to 6% more “widgets” that shift. Sheboon was a big girl. Took a lot of extra steps to walk around her.
When you hear that tech companies are “laying off” programmers and engineers etc., remember that they might not really be laying them off, but replacing them with cheaper foreign labor. But the corporate press will NEVER say this.
One wonders: why pay six figures for a dyslexic lesbian black DEI officer, when you can easily get an equivalent from Nigeria for minimum wage? Or maybe DEI work can all be outsourced to India, where tele-DEI staff will work for a dollar an hour or less?
“You can’t fix stupid” ~ Ron White
Case in point:
The massive, pervasive and impenetrable Negro Delusion Bubble is still there, waiting.
Après moi, le diversité.
Rather than blackpill young white men, we should encourage them to rise by intelligence, mobility (moving toward opportunities by geography and industry), and hard work. It seems to work for East Asians in the USA.
All the while, the young men should pay lip service (but absolutely none of their precious time) to DEI. All the way to the top, recite “Après moi, le diversité.”
Women and NAMs seem to get ahead at first, but they can’t sustain it. They end up in dead-end organizations, even if well-paid, or out of the workforce entirely.
….and, the Africans are coming.
The deep fryer was invented in France in the late 19th century by French engineer and inventor Jules Richard. The first version of chicken and waffles was created by the Pennsylvania Dutch around 1840. Waffles were first introduced into America by Europeans in the 1600’s.
If anyone is guilty of “cultural appropriation” that would be blacks themselves, so they really do need to STFU. They done did nuffin.
Finally! Some good news on the home front. Virtually every “diversity” employee in these firms were hired for meeting race/gender enforcement quotas and conducting behavior modification. These people added nothing to profitability. So they now have to find some honest work? Good. May every company in America follow suit.
There is one thing about this piece, however, that I find depressing: the quoted material from Bloomberg BusinessWeek. The author, Kelsey Butler, seems greatly disappointed over employees from “underrepresented” groups being let go — as if they should have been hired in the first place! Michael Bloomberg is a disgrace to the business world for turning his magazine so far leftward. Back in 2016, if one recalls, his magazine did a lengthy, fawning interview with Alicia Garza, a co-founder of Black Lives Matter. That’s what his magazine is: a broadsheet for BLM and its functionaries.
To me, a radio station that goes full hip-hop is a cultural disaster. I’ll take Tom Petty over black petty criminals anyday.
I went to Sweden in mid-1985. The cities I visited were clean and safe, and everywhere I looked were friendly white people. I’m glad I went then because I’d never step foot in the country now or ever again.
DEI jobs and Human Resources jobs exist not because it provides value in the marketplace, but because of state intervention in the economy.
The article also mentioned a decline in corporate law jobs. Although there too is stuff that’s irrelevant and even dysfunctional to the market place, there is inherently valuable work such as drafting contracts and civil litigation.
OT: Orcs and their DWL allies don’t really give a damn about orc lives. Blaming Saint Floyd’s death by fentanyl overdose on an arresting officer (who used a restraint method that had never before killed anyone, nor has it killed anyone since then) was a means to light the country on fire and enact swift political change to their liking, and it worked.
Here’s a headline from the DC area this morning::
3 dead, 4 injured in separate shootings in DC on Saturday
Nobody bats an eye because this is TNB and it happens with great regularity wherever orcs are found. Nobody’s going to wail, “Oh, how could this have happened during our most holy occasion, Black Hissry Mumph? When will these senseless killings end?” Nobody asks because not one of the orcs or their DWLs (with BLM signs on the lawns of their entirely white neighborhoods, as far as they can get from their beloved orcs) honestly cares about black criminality. The rest of us are not supposed to even notice, and if we do, then we’re supposed to believe that Evil Whitey caused this orc violence.
Separation from them is the only answer. There’s no “fixing” them.
Looks like 2020 in the USA. I hope that diversity ages like wine!
I think I’d seen where black musicians would get out of the clubs and supposedly have the meal as both were staples of late night diners. Waffles were beyond the capability of Africa because flour and cooking land birds has been on the menu since “Ooot, greet, me-ugh” caveman times.
I’m pretty sure that’s the software for those 2 dindu real estate moguls that caused Starbucks to shut down nationwide a few years ago. Remember those 2 that showed up to Starbucks for a big real estate deal in sweatpants and couldn’t afford the 3 dollar coffee to leach off their free wifi and clog their toilets up with free toilet paper they themselves couldn’t afford? Remember those 2? They got the manager shitcanned and doxxed simply for following company policy. Whatever happened to those 2? Probably doing multi billion dollar real estate deals in Manhatten now
TOWSON, Md. — Detectives in Baltimore County are investigating after multiple people were robbed and then sexually assaulted.
It happened Thursday evening near the corner of Joppa Road and Allegheny Avenue.
Students, business owners and people like Damitra Bell who frequent this community are speaking out about this attack.
Bell is a business owner in the area. She, like many others, are hoping police get to the bottom of it so that it doesn’t happen again.
“It’s actually just very shocking because this is actually really secure area. It really just makes you want to be more attentive and it’s really scary,” Bell said.
This was the response from many people in the Towson Circle area after hearing several people had been robbed and then sexually assaulted.
“Never had any issues, never. It’s very peaceful, so yeah it’s shocking,” Bell said.
Bell said she had just left her establishment Thursday night around 10:00 p.m. An hour later police said several people were robbed and then sexually assaulted near the Towson Circle.
Towson University sent out a message to their students informing them of what happened. The advisory stated an unknown armed man robbed three people behind Towson Hot Bagels, before sexually assaulting them.
The advisory mentioned after the attack the man ran away from the area.
Bell like many others are hoping this doesn’t happen again.
“I hope this doesn’t deter residents and visitors and patrons to come to the Towson area because I think by in large Towson is still very safe, it’s a very quiet environment. I mean it definitely makes you wanna just keep an eye out for anything that looks strange or peculiar,” Bell said.
Detectives are still investigating.
If you have any information concerning this attack, you’re urged to contact Baltimore County Police at 410-887-2361.
long ago I first heard the term ‘token negro’.
You would think dark mysterious forces are pushing it how far the white race will take punishment. As if they actually pushing for civil war. De Santis made a shrewd political move by appointing a Nigerian as his top medical officer who opposes the Covid mandates and masking. The blacks who were brought to America were the African slave underclass. You see with Floyd, the bulbous lips and Negroid features characteristic of low class blacks. The smart blacks, (browns actually) in America got their good genes from their white slavers. Their features are mostly Caucasian. Prior to his death, Floyd belonged to the criminal underclass in America. He was what parents warned their children to avoid. His death if he had been non black, would have passed unnoticed by the media, and Chauvin would have kept his job. He would still have his delightful Laotian wife. Now he sits in a pen, probably with a mask.
Swedes don’t have machine guns ?
Swedes don’t have two brain cells to rub together and have allowed a Chimp invasion.
I saw this video and it makes me come unglued.
Funny how videos of Police dealing with Black criminals spark “outrage” in the media but this is strangely silent.
Makes you think there is an agenda in the U.S. government , you think?
A real problem child.. I’ll remember that the next time I see a video of three munts stomping the head of an unconscious White dude.

Almost all of these people are midwit women with otherwise useless liberal arts degrees.
In the West, the greatest plagues of the modern era have been feminism and the rise of junk academia.
Feminism actively pushes women away from their traditional roles as wives and mothers, leading to a dramatic fall in birth rates to well below replacement level in nearly every white nation.
At the same time, the rise of junk academia provided a destination for these women, a large majority of whom are both intellectually and temperamentally unsuited for more challenging academic work that leads to genuine wealth creation, like hard science and engineering — then they take their liberal arts degrees and flood into education (teaching, administration), the media, corporate bureaucracies, politics, law, etc — the consequences have been disastrous.
To make the situation even worse, women now significantly outnumber men in college — since women normally marry ‘up’, i.e. a woman typically chooses a man who is more intelligent than her, and has higher SES than she does, this means marriage and birth rates will fall further as these college-educated women fail to find suitable partners.
The orc has no interest in marrying her. He’ll get her pregnant, ditch her and leave her to raise her sprog alone. Mudsharks never learn.

always up for an adventure, Martha McKay surrounded herself with fiends.
/PEOPLE showed his mugshot..odd.
This movie could never be made today.
Diversity is strength to the divide and conquer tribe who want to stay on top.
I agree about feminism. The feminists forget that men prefer traditional women for marriage. They want a wife who keeps track of family birthdays, enjoys cooking, acts feminine (no fighting at Walmart?), takes the children to church, and reminds them of traditional wives and mothers.
Note the singular article [“a] the singular subject noun [worker], the singular verb [was], the singular noun in the subordinate clause [search], the clauses’s singular verb form [has], but the plural pronoun [they]. The sentence is constructed by someone who presumably uses the title of “professional journalist” yet is entirely illiterate.
Translation: in a recession, employees will have to work harder. Well, Boo Hoo.
I’ve worked with women over the course of decades, and am well aware of the change (often for the worse) between the ‘60’s and present day.
Back then women were “ladies” and that wasn’t considered a derogatory or sexist label.
They were tough women, worthy of respect, yet tender and nurturing at appropriate times.
One woman I worked with had her husband die at the wheel as they drove down the street during winter. She grabbed the steering wheel and guided the car with two children in the back seat, safely to a stop.
Widowed, she carried on raising her children while having to work at the same time after the death.
She and other women had that aura of femininity but at the same time commanded respect. They didn’t resent being called Mrs., using their husband’s surname, or having doors opened for them.
Quite a contrast today.
Not sure if you’re old enough to remember the 60’s, but to me that was the decade in which the radical change from the traditional and family oriented in the early 60’s, to the beginnings of the militant political activism in the latter part of the decade, occurred with women.
The women I worked with were largely traditional, but the inter mixture and contrast of the early libbers was becoming quite evident.
A lot of factors, but certainly “the pill” was one facilitating influence.
Aaaand, in other news…Prince George’s County: The gift that keeps on giving!
This is actually close to where I used to live. Guess I got out of there just in time!
Note the latest “DEI” degree program, BA and BS no less, from Bentley University (metro Boston).
I could not agree with you more!!! In fact, as I see it, the token, useless “hires” should consider themselves grateful for even having had these made-up, pointless, non-productive, money-wasting roles in the first place. They’ve been getting reparations for 60 years now.
Where the hell do they find watermelons in February?
Would that it were so! Note the reality:
In other words, the only tech-related categories.
Sweden bragged that they gave more money to the terrorist movements now running South Africa (into the ground) than any other government.
Congratulations, Sweden; you bought them, now they’re yours.
And what the fuck is a White guy doing becoming a cop in Memphis? Stupid beyond belief.
One thing is for certain, Corporate America is realizing how useless 99% of India is. Everyone knows that the Indian offshore workforce is a fucking joke.
That points to an even more irritating aspect of all this. The beneficiaries are rarely actual black blacks, but more usually, mulattoes and quadroons who tend to come from privileged backgrounds to begin with. It’s Cory Booker who gets to be a Senator, not George Floyd.
>women normally marry ‘up’
link — Women are more likely to get divorced after being promoted. Divorce rates jump by 50 percent when the wife earns more than the husband.
When the traditional marriage dynamic is reversed, divorce happens FAR more often — feminism disrupts the most basic foundation of society — and without the existence of junk academia, this would not be happening to such an extent — these midwit women ought to be marrying and raising children, instead of working as soulless corporate diversity apparatchiks.
Cauchemar du Singe.—————Sweden is what happens when you first give White women the vote,and then allow them to “lead” the country. This always causes chaos.
eah———How can you tell whether a female is a midwit or not? Every decision is based more on “feelings” rather than actual thought. Perhaps a new term “midfeelz” should be invented.
I heartily wish that the ape would go OJ on her!
I knew a woman, close friend of my wife, who got divorced, and told everybody that she did it because she now earned more than her husband, and didn’t need him any more.
Years later, I learned via her daughter and my daughter, the true reason: her husband sacked her because he was tired of having to sell his house to pay off her debts. I never had to sell my house, but I could relate.
Women use this excuse to save face when they run out of rope, to save face. As the song goes, “It ain’t necessarily so”.
And the wish fairy, or whatever it is that grants wishes, says “Stand back, I’ve got this. This one’s a cinch.”
Maybe twitter has started the ball rolling, and the tech companies are becoming red-pilled.
DEI is not just a drag on a company, it is actively counter-productive. Similar to public education, where they are not only failing to educate, but actively mis-educating by trying to indoctrinate children with falsehoods. The cumulative effect is disastrous.
I’m sure the situation below is very typical, and not just because women with junk academic degrees likely dominate corporate HR — the natural empathy of women means, among other things, they tend to want to see both sides, and their natural deference means they lean toward the safety inherent in the current consensus — this is why women are generally more likely to observe the secular moral canon as defined by the media, including supporting the Latest Thing™.
>How can you tell whether a female is a midwit or not?
It’s a fair question — if you look at the IQ curves of men vs women, above an IQ of 135 or so, men outnumber women about 7:1, and this lopsided ratio increases with higher IQ — Larry Summers, at the time president of Harvard, got into trouble for saying this was a big reason there are so few women on the engineering and hard science faculties at elite universities (link), where you will normally find only the most intelligent high-achievers — women also appear to be temperamentally unsuited to such analytical work: it just does not appeal to them.
Similarly, men generally outnumber women at lower IQ values associated with well above average intelligence, albeit the ratio is smaller — so stated simply, as measured by IQ, there are simply more smart men than smart women.
To be fair, there are also more dumb men than dumb women — on an IQ curve, women bunch in the middle, whereas there are more distinct tails for men, at both the high and low end of the IQ curve.
So I think the vast majority of women who get liberal arts degrees can not unfairly be labeled midwits.
AnalogMan————Remember the Clarence Thomas Supreme Court confirmation? The Democrat mantra was “women never lie”. This was repeated many times with a straight face during the Senate hearings. Having some familiarity with women,i was truly impressed by their performance.
eah————Women would be far better served with a degree in Home Economics than degrees in liberal arts,psychology,sociology,or God help us “women’s studies”. University just put’s women’s natural tendency toward bitchyness on steroids. No wonder HALF of them are single and childless at 30.
My impression is that the term “midwit” was coined by Vox Day, who claims an astronomically high IQ (which he never divulges). He applies it to people with IQ in the region of 130 – about halfway between “average” and his own superior intellect.
I’ve seen no evidence to support it. I followed his blog for a while. He does have a monstrous ego. And a garage band, and he plays soccer, and writes fairy stories and comic books. Which he writes about endlessly. A real pillar of Civilisation.
“It’s a fair question — if you look at the IQ curves of men vs women, above an IQ of 135 or so, men outnumber women about 7:1, and this lopsided ratio increases with higher IQ”
This IQ curve difference is observed far more easily on the left side of the bell curve, where it is far more difficult to deny… So no leftist will touch it!
>women normally marry ‘up’
link — Single college-educated women are far more likely to report that having trouble finding someone who “meets their expectations” is a major reason why they’re single.
As already suggested, because women currently significantly outnumber men in college, and this imbalance will likely worsen, one aspect of the demographic disaster enveloping white countries is about to get even worse: large numbers of college-educated white women will fail to find a suitable partner — as a result, both marriage and birth rates will fall further.
eah———–Oh but yes,women do want to marry up. While women focus on the top 5% of men,even educated women vastly over estimate what they bring to the table. I had heard enough from one single again coworker demeaning “scrub” men. I finally spoke up and told her that men were like fish in the sea. ” Lots of us ocean perch,mullet,croaker,etc. Very few big tuna,sword fish,or marlin. Frankly,YOU don’t have the right bait to bag a trophy Chad. ” Damn,i just hate it when women spray spit while they scream.
Nothing surprising here — also, ‘subjective major’ is a characteristic of junk academia:
Bad idea, believe me. Just as Whites and blacks are genetically different, Indians are yet another different race, with their own associated problems. Don’t go looking for new problems.
Maybe; but I wouldn’t bet on it. America seems set on exploring the limits of exactly how much ruin there is in a nation.
