Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives might finally be going to the trash can of history

Americans are getting fed up with pushy leftist demands.  This is especially true for their push for the “equity” agenda.

Not only are they sick of the forced indoctrination at work and school, but they are also tired of incompetent people being put into jobs where their incompetence puts people in danger.

Now it seems a day of reckoning is heading straight for diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives.

Mark Cuban says that “race, gender, and religion” should be a part of the hiring process

Mark Cuban has been spending the last several months on social media arguing for the benefits of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the hiring process. 

The billionaire entrepreneur believes it is his right and a “competitive advantage” to consider “race, gender, and religion” when finding the right applicant for a job.

While many high-profile social media influencers have called out Mark Cuban for being racist, one account called The Rabbit Hole seemed to really get under his skin. 

“I believe in a colorblind meritocracy; this means I am against forms of hiring which…cut out merited individuals over their group association(s),” they wrote. 

The Rabbit Hole warned that Cuban may be in violation of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act.

Cuban contended that he had “never hired anyone based exclusively on race, gender, or religion,” but he does believe these protected characteristics “can be part of the equation.” 

But one federal official is pushing back on Cuban’s argument.

EEOC Commissioner makes clear that they are “not the equal outcomes commission”

Andrea Lucas, the Commissioner at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, responded to Cuban’s position that he should be able to factor these characteristics into the hiring process. 

The federal official said that she saw many companies trying to do the right thing but warned that they could be violating the law in doing so.

“If any employer, whether private or public, uses race or sex or any other protected characteristic, particularly race or sex, as any factor in their decision-making process for any employment decision then they’ve violated Title VII and employee that’s been harmed can file a complaint with the EEOC,” she said.

Lucas went on to explain that if the EEOC agrees with their complaint, they will issue a “right to sue letter,” and then the damaged party can file a lawsuit in Federal Court.

“I like to remind people, we are the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, we are not the equal outcomes commission. That is just a fundamentally different mission,” she said.

Now, it seems that Wall Street is beginning to hear the message loud and clear.

Head of diversity at Merrill Lynch says DEI policies are “past the peak”

Multiple major banking institutions are now beginning to roll back DEI-era policies that have been the catalyst to major backlash from Americans. 

Goldman Sachs Group recently ended the prohibition of White students at their “Possibilities Summit.” 

Bank of America has opened advancement programs internally to all employees rather than solely focusing on women and minorities.

And lawyers for Bank of New York Mellon are encouraging top executives to ditch DEI metrics that have become a cornerstone to their business. 

This is a major shift for Wall Street companies that are shaping their business on woke ideologies, and it will likely result in a trickled-down effect to their clients.

It’s been a long time coming, but even the Former Head of Diversity at Merrill Lynch, Subha Barry, says that DEI is “past the peak.” 

Things are about to shift in a big way, and the systemic discrimination against White employees is coming to an end.
