    So this is a dogwhistle for whiteness yet the left goes crazy when you suggest that their calls for diversity and sensitivity are in fact dog whistles, in the exact same way, for racial/sexual hiring quotas, preferential treatment and racism directed against white people and that the first is bad and the second is good.
    I asked for neither your Opinion,
    your Acceptance
    nor your Permission.

    Do you have any specific quotes where he has stated that he is anti-immigration and not anti-illegal-immigration?

    Because there is a world of difference.

    While I genuinely disagree with boiling down the value of diversity in purely economic terms- diversity IS a strength in workplace situations.

    There are decades of research on this topic, finding benefits like:

    Striving to increase workplace diversity is not an empty slogan — it is a good business decision. A 2015 McKinsey report on 366 public companies found that those in the top quartile for ethnic and racial diversity in management were 35% more likely to have financial returns above their industry mean, and those in the top quartile for gender diversity were 15% more likely to have returns above the industry mean.

    In a global analysis of 2,400 companies conducted by Credit Suisse, organizations with at least one female board member yielded higher return on equity and higher net income growth than those that did not have any women on the board.

    In recent years a body of research has revealed another, more nuanced benefit of workplace diversity: nonhomogenous teams are simply smarter. Working with people who are different from you may challenge your brain to overcome its stale ways of thinking and sharpen its performance.

    Cloverpop did a huge research project on decision making and diversity in teams and found, among other things that:

    • Inclusive teams make better business decisions up to 87% of the time.

    • Teams that follow an inclusive process make decisions 2X faster with 1/2 the meetings.

    • Decisions made and executed by diverse teams delivered 60% better results.
    People who question the value of diversity in the workplace likely don't work for truly global companies. If you do- you fundamentally understand why diversity is so important.

    Diversity is also important in government- as it makes it easier to draft and pass legislation that incorporates the diverse set of needs from our diverse electorate.

    And, finally. no one wants their kids to grow up as a bunch of old, bitter, sexist, racist, and homophobic jerkoffs who post ridiculous threads like "What does diversity is our strength mean?". Having more diversity around us makes our kids a lot less likely to grow up that way- and much more able to handle the realities of an incredibly diverse world instead of cowering in their homes watching Tucker Carlson and fretting over white birth rates.

    Ah yes, there it is. Throwing out the "you're racist for even asking!" while at the same time proving that all of the words proceeding this paragraph was just a bunch of empty statistics you scrounged up to fit the narrative. But right here you proved it's not about "diversity" at all, but rather "non-white."

    Good job, time4fun. You're doing a grand job in your fight against cwolff for most retarded poster.

    Wow, it's totally like you can't bring yourself to say that the only beneficial diversity is in the diversity of thought. You were almost there with this "Working with people who are different from you may challenge your brain to overcome its stale ways of thinking and sharpen its performance." but even then it's been worded to avoid saying "your brain is challenged when introduced to other ways of thinking."

    Not sure why you'd create a false statement by me and put it in your signature. Seems kinda creepy...

    It needs to start in the schools, at an elementary level.

    No it doesn't. Cramming down diversity for the sake of diversity is the problem. The left segments, divides and partitions. Teaching kids to do that is the problem.

    I didn't mean teaching diversity. I meant quality schooling for all races and social classes.

    Skills to pay bills.

    Not, "Hey this guy is brown, give him a job."
