Apple’s Diversity Chief Out After Recognizing Diversity in Whites

Apple’s diversity chief is stepping down after only six months on the job — after causing an outcry by saying that being a minority or a woman are not the only criteria for diversity, reports The New York Post.

Denise Young Smith, who was named vice president of diversity and inclusion in May, said at the One Young World Summit in Bogotá, Colombia last month that:
There can be 12 white, blue-eyed, blond men in a room and they’re going to be diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation.
Diversity is the human experience. I get a little bit frustrated when diversity or the term diversity is tagged to the people of color, or the women, or the LGBT.
She, of course,  apologized for her reality-based remarks, telling the Apple staff that they “were not representative of how I think about diversity or how Apple sees it.”

“For that, I’m sorry,” she said in an email. “More importantly, I want to assure you Apple’s view and our dedication to diversity has not changed.”

The 20-year Apple veteran will leave the company at the end of the year, TechCrunch reports.

Taking over as VP of inclusion and diversity will be Christie Smith, who looks to be a winner in limiting diversity to politically correct groups. She says her parents were feminists the 1960s:
Growing up in the suburbs of New York in the 1960s and 1970s with feminist parents, the dinner table conversation with them and my seven siblings often centered on social justice, service, faith, prejudice, and action.


  1. "Diversity for me but not for thee"...

  2. Smith's statement is refreshing. If you had a Progressive-defined "diverse" group consisting of Barack Obama (white African-American), Elizabeth Warren (Native American), Hillary (white something or other), Sonia Sotomayor (Latina) and Barney Frank (white, gay male), how many different views on the role of the state (or almost any other topic) would you really get? And if you had to add one more member to increase diversity, would that be Joe Biden or a redneck from Alabama?

    1. (If it wasn't clear, I meant her initial statement made in Bogota.)

  3. Nobody said being a corporate slave was going to be easy. Get back on your approved 3x5 card of existence.

  4. Whites are a minority in the world's population - only 11%. But according to the diversity zealots this minority's culture should be destroyed.

  5. "F"ck duh-versity already. Let us be honest acknowledge that homogeneity would be a strength. Brazil is clusterfk of large proportion because of its 'duh-verse' population.

    White European males are God's greatest gift on earth and always will be. Most other race should be grateful to European male Western culture otherwise they would still be living in filth and squalor.

    Apple should focus on how to make a better profit and less on virtue signaling SJW crap though I don't have enough white privilege in my bank account to purchase any Apple product. Not that I would support another lefty corporatist who hates whites.

    1. And always will be? Ok... fortune-telling quack. Pull the next 5 market downturns and lotto numbers out of your ass, while you're at it.

    2. --- White European males are God's greatest gift on earth and always will be. ---

  6. I wonder if she was appointed to her position in the first place because of her unique & thoughtful views on diversity in an organization, or as a token female/black person to signal how "diverse" they are and how "they cant be racist because they have a black friend."

  7. As I understand the current use of the American English Language, "diversity" means racism. The more races, the more diverse, yes? And we want diversity because each race has a unique intellectual viewpoint and we want a large number of differing intellectual viewpoints, yes? And you can tell what a person' viewpoint is without even asking them - just look at their skin color or gender (if it shows).

    All whites think one way and all blacks think another, yes? All Jews...wait, are Jews a race? I get so confused.

    I'm a white male. What is it I believe? I forget. Oh yes, I remember: all blacks and women are my inferiors - that's what they say I believe.

    Except for my wife who is smarter than me and my neighbor who is browner and smarter than me and Murray Rothbard who is more Jewish and smarter than me and ..... I do get so confused. I look in the mirror and still can't see what I believe.

    It's a good thing we have progressive, liberal, left-wing, democratic, psycho-babbling smart people to explain these things to us.
