    Default If you’re a White Man the Democratic Party of America doesn’t want you

    https://www.politico.com/story/2019/...ersity-1166386

    According to Politico, an all white and male inner circle ‘won’t be tolerated by the base’. Every candidate is putting diversity hire policies into overdrive, prioritising those born with brown skin.

    In a departure from past elections, Democratic hopefuls are methodically hiring people of color to oversee their operations. Julian Castro, Cory Booker and Kamala Harris have all brought on black or Latino campaign managers.
    “Anytime they reject the white boy wunderkids who got us into this mess — the better,” added Jess Morales Rocketto, former digital organizing director for Hillary Clinton. “Campaigns woke up from 2016, saw the level of influence voters of color had over 2018 and are taking that seriously with their first big decision as a presidential candidate: by hiring diverse senior level staff.”

    Outside groups such as Latino Victory and the National Urban League and NAACP are also keeping tabs on which candidates place staffers of color in high-level jobs, according to multiple Democratic aides.

    Some Democrats have questioned whether there are
    enough experienced minority staffers to be hired across what's expected to be a sprawling 2020 Democratic field. But Democratic operatives and lawmakers say any candidate who tries to excuse a lack of diversity as the result of a small talent pool won’t be taken seriously. Candidates, they say, need to be willing to consider people who haven’t worked on presidential campaigns before, too.
    In a race to snatch up top talent, 2020 candidates are asking minority operatives, outside groups and lawmakers in swing states for hiring advice. Rodell Mollineau, a longtime Democratic strategist, said he’s getting “lots of calls” from presidential campaigns looking for people of color. Rep. Steven Horsford (D-Nev.) is in regular talks with 2020 candidates as they form their ground operations in his state, which holds its Democratic primary early. Horsford has advised candidates that to win they must have senior staff and consultants who come from minority groups — including LGBTQ, Native-American and Asian-American communities.

    “They have no excuse not to hire Latinos,” said Mayra Macias, vice president of Latino Victory Fund. “We can unequivocally say that the path to the White House is through the Latino vote.”
    “It’s politically unacceptable for a Democratic candidate to not have a diverse staff,” Butterfield said. “Anyone who fails to understand that is not a serious candidate.”
    This cult of diversity is an identity politics joke gone way too far. In the UK, we already see all female shortlists from the Labour Party.

    When American Presidential candidates are asking their strategists not for the best, but for the least white employees, have things not gone too far?

    The thread title is very stupid. How does more diversity mean 'no whites'?

    Not feeling it Aexodus. You should come out and hang in SE Idaho. Not a white male Mormon well it who cares if you are the best you are second in line. Liberal step back, not local step back again and you better not be native stay on the res.. I don't think I have ever lived in a more insular place. So the informal vibe is the Dem candidates should try to make their staff look a bit more like their base. I see no directive. No new party rule. Do you suppose Gerry Adams had a lot notable Protestants in his inner circle of advisors?

    2/3, really 61% of the US population are white european descendants.
    The US democrats are committing political suicide with the "white americans are the fault" rhetoric. If the white demographics wake up, they'd never vote for the Democrats again.

    The problem here is intersectionality. Putting immutable characteristics first. They are prioritising those who are not white, who are not straight, and who are not male. That’s why I say they ‘don’t want you’. They are putting competence and experience in the back seat.

    I mean just look at this quote.

    “Anytime they reject the white boy wunderkids who got us into this mess — the better,” added Jess Morales Rocketto, former digital organizing director for Hillary Clinton.
    You have Gillibrand saying ‘the future is female, intersectional...’ like what is wrong with these people

    This is wholly antithetical to equality and treating everyone the same regardless of characteristics. Judge people by the content of their character.

    And diversity does mean ‘not white’ yes. A 95% all black movie cast is considered ‘diverse’ bizarrely.

    While I'm sure you can find someone, somewhere, who really does believe all whites are evil, to say that the Democratic party as a whole believes that is as nonsensical as saying all Republicans believe the rich should own all wealth, be exempt from all laws, and pay no taxes whatsoever. It's just intellectual laziness that partisans use to avoid the hard work of actually listening to their opponent's arguments and actually risk agreeing with them. It's far easier to just unilaterally denounce your opponents as monstrous and unreasonable.

    The NFL is also required by policy to interview at least one non-white candidate every time they hire a coach or assistant coach. Once they started interviewing them, the rate of non-white coaches in the NFL skyrocketed. Funny how that works.

    The number of resumes on the desk is immense. Requiring yourself to at least look at someone that's not white isn't that amazing a thing to do.

    Go on now. Be insulted.

    The problem here is that Democrats do not denounce those that speak for them and make obviously racist statements. In general, Democrats consist of virtue-signaling corporate shills and neo-marxists who are stupid enough (well aside from being fiscally illeterate) to think that these virtue-signaling shills actually believe in "progressive" nonsense that they spout.

    Firing of Several Black Coaches Puts N.F.L. Hiring Under Scrutiny

    On Monday, the number of African-American coaches fired in 2018 soared to five, leaving only two black coaches in a league where at least 70 percent of the players are African-American.

    The most competent and experienced Democrat today is in fact in control of the party and is a straight white female, Nancy Pelosi. She's absolutely dominated Trump in every showdown they have had so far. Why is it you believe that only white men can be good at things I wonder?

    Thank you for this textbook example of strawman.
    It all comes down to ignoring interests of majority (regardless of background) in favor of interests of rich corporate oligarchy while using "progressive" nonsense as an ideological excuse.

    I still want to know if you can explain what a strawman is. Because I look at your title and get oddly confused.

    Do you know how big the campaign staff is? But sure. Totally misunderstand what a strawman is by throwing that title up there.

    I think it is a given that there are white men in the Democratic Party, as elected politicians, as activists and as voters, so the meaning of the thread title is what precisely?

    I suggest its a flare to attract racist or mysogynist discourse and not much else.
