Jerry Bowyer: The Real Point in Diversity

The point of “diversity” in the marketplace should be for people with different points of view contribute different things to the business.

But ideologues today typically use diversity as little more than a code-word for identity politics. They don’t care about genuine diversity—diversity that would include different points of view, different worldviews. In truth: They really just want progressives from various identity groups.

According to a new study by the Religious Freedom and Business Foundation, this thinking is now dominant in the corporate world. Among Fortune 100 companies, “protected categories” such as race and gender were emphasized by corporations over religion by a factor of 34 to 1.

Corporations love to talk about “diversity” and “inclusivity”—but their concern is really only skin deep.

It’s time to go deeper and add religious and viewpoint diversity to America’s largest companies.

Michael Medved: Democrats Repeat The Same Bad Mistakes

Opioid

Amid all the evaluations of the first hundred days of President Trump, what about considering the first hundred days of Democrats as the party of opposition?

So far, they’ve shown a destructive tendency to repeat the same mistakes that cost them the election in November.

• First, they focus exclusively on attacking the president while counting on scandal to destroy their opponents.

• Second, Democrats continue to rely on identity politics: trying to rally minorities, women and gays with a sense of victimhood, while demonizing white males. But identity politics doesn’t work: in November, Trump got slightly more votes than Romney among blacks and Latinos, while Clinton failed among her fellow white women—losing that group to Trump by 9 points.

The practice of running strictly negative campaigns and dividing voters into warring demographic groups will lead Democrats to more defeats in the years ahead.
