Did you hear the news?
It turns out that systemic racism exists after all.
In 2021, 94% of new corporate jobs in S&P 100 companies went to “people of color.” There is currently no data available for how things went in 2022 and 2023.
For a brief moment in 2020, much of corporate America united around a common goal: to address the stark racial imbalances in their workplaces.
Mass protests sparked by the murder of George Floyd led to a flurry of company promises, both specific and vague, to hire and promote more Black people and others from underrepresented groups.
Exclusive analysis by Bloomberg News shows how many of the biggest public companies did.
The US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission requires companies with 100 or more employees to report their workforce demographics every year. Bloomberg obtained 2020 and 2021 data for 88 S&P 100 companies and calculated overall US job growth at those firms.
In total, they increased their US workforces by 323,094 people in 2021, the first year after the Black Lives Matter protests — and the most recent year for which this data exists.
The overall job growth included 20,524 White workers. The other 302,570 jobs — or 94% of the headcount increase — went to people of color. …
A comprehensive data set does not yet exist for 2022 because companies have until December to report their figures to the EEOC. …
The Great Replacement isn’t a conspiracy theory.
Whites are being replaced in Corporate America on the basis of race. This is also being reported by Bloomberg News, not by a pro-White group like the Homeland Institute.
My first thought upon reading this was to recall Christopher Rufo’s article last month called No to the Politics of “Whiteness.” Rufo has made the case that we are winning and some people on the Right “would snatch defeat from the jaws of victory” by insisting that White people should start standing up for themselves. This is bad because it is playing a zero sum game of “identity politics.” We don’t need to do that because taking the high road of principled colorblind liberalism and trusting in liberal institutions like the justice system to produce race blind outcomes makes much more sense.
The main argument for this position is that colorblind equality is unattainable. Left-wing racialism has been embedded in our institutions, laws, and policies to such an extent that it cannot be rolled back using conventional means. All politics is friend-enemy politics, this faction argues, and given the demographic decline of European Americans, whites will eventually need to activate “white racial consciousness” to secure their basic interests. European Americans once had robust ethnic identities, but after generations of assimilation and intermarriage, those distinctions have lost their salience and consolidated into a homogenous, generalized “white identity.” If there is to be a racial spoils system, then each group must get its share—including whites.
Fortunately, such a political theory already exists: the natural rights theory of the American Founders, who argued that each human being was endowed with “certain unalienable rights” that applied to all as a universal principle; at the same time, they accepted that, because human cultures are contingent, not all groups will have identical capacities, expressions, and outcomes. …
As a practical matter, too, the politics of colorblind equality is vastly superior to the politics of “white identity.” …
The vision of racialists, whether on the left or right, is pessimistic: the first is driven by a spirit of vengeance, the second by a sense of inferiority. They are two sides of the same coin. …
Real liberalism has never been tried!
Colorblindness isn’t a failure that has been a disaster for Whites!
Actually, the Civil Rights Movement could have worked out differently in this fantasy world and alternate timeline that I have made up in my own mind!
Rufoism has aged like the Ron DeSantis presidential campaign. In the real world, Ethan Liming received hood justice. The family of Andreas Probst is speaking out against racism. The system is so anti-White that when White people are murdered in cold blood by blacks (and often acquitted) their family members feel compelled to speak out because failing to do so might harm their rosy public image.
