When I retired last year, I told my manger, I’m helping you out, as a non diverse, non woke white male, who is tired of the bullshit, you can now hire someone who meets the quota requirements the company has dictated. I’m done putting up with it.

Thomas Sowell and others have shown that prior to the rise of the Great Society welfare system in the 1960's that black families were very common (compared to single motherhood) and the children grew up to be law abiding productive adults.
Sowell says very eloquently that there are behaviors which preclude (or nearly preclude) success, and that these behaviors have become idealized within the black community. Single motherhood, taking drugs, criminal activity, dropping out of school, etc.
It seems similar to some of the Indian reservations, where being the opposite of white is considered desirable, but is a mistaken understanding. They are rejecting successful behaviors which have nothing to do with race.
Fly-sig your inclusion of native Americans suffering under similar self induced misery is noteworthy and sadly all too accurate
"Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on or by imbeciles who really mean it."
Almost makes you wonder if there are any damning internal emails that could put Microsoft at risk if they were to be sued for discrimination. Hmmmmm?
The price of liberty and even of common humanity is eternal vigilance
I say one month and James O'Keefe and his OMG org will have undercover video from a Microsoft employee. James and his staff sure know how to honeypot someone into talking. I look forward to it.

I was ever so happy for my 2nd retirement, this one from a state agency whose annual training for the last several years indicated that being Caucasian means that I am "unconsciously racist." They had removed Qualified Immunity for LEO's a couple years prior and also passed a statute regarding personal civil damages for LEO's communicating with ICE regarding criminal aliens. I drove out of the parking lot with a smile on my face.
16 months ago I retired, earlier than I had been planning to, from a smallish (~700 employees) not for profit. We worked with public school districts, federal and state DOEs, etc., toward improving testing of students. We had a handful of clerical types and a dozen or so shipping / receiving people, but most employees were educated, professional level folks. I was one of a few token conservatives, but most were true old-school liberals. I worked there for 21 years and in all that time never heard of a single instance of any race-related conflict.
Then, 3 months into the George Floyd mess, our CEO decided we needed a new department in the company called DEIA. Headed by a newly hired senior VP, a black woman. Her own bio describes (proudly) how she spent her entire career doing racially oriented "work". Suddenly we're all required to spend significant hours in both formal classes and doing extra "study" individually. They gave us a suggested reading list of books and articles with titles like "Why Not Being Racist Isn't Enough." WTF?
The last 2 years I spent there, they spent telling me that I'm a racist because I'm white. And I'm someone who honestly has never had a bigoted bone in my body. How do you feel when somebody accuses you of something ugly when you know damn well you aren't and never have been guilty of it? Well it pisses me off. I immediately resent and then start to actively dislike those who are making the accusations. That whole mess, plus the engineering group being told we had to shift over to a different development system that NONE of us like, made me decide to bail out early.
When I had my exit interview they asked why I'd decided to leave. I told them it was largely because of DEIA. They were starting to turn me into the very thing that they hate so much.
