*Charlamagne Tha God criticized workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) efforts as “garbage” during his guest host appearance on “The Daily Show.”

“The truth about DEI is that although it’s well-intentioned, it’s mostly garbage, okay?” he said, Daily Wire reports. “It’s kind of like the black little mermaid. Just because racists hate it doesn’t mean it’s good. And you know I’m right because everyone one of you has sat through one of those diversity training sessions and thought, this is some bull****.”

There’s pushback on DEI initiatives in the workforce due to concerns about perceived tokenism, fear of reverse discrimination, and skepticism about the effectiveness of such programs in achieving genuine diversity and inclusion. Some argue that DEI efforts may lead to resentment and division rather than fostering true equity.

“Over 900 studies have shown that DEI programs don’t make the workplace better for minorities. It can actually make things worse because of the backlash effect,” Charlamagne stated. 

“The biggest failure of DEI is that the number of black people in power at big companies [is] basically the same as it was five years ago,” he continued. “In fact, maybe the only thing that DEI has accomplished is giving racist white people cover to be openly racist.”

Charlamagne noted that DEI programs in the workforce ultimately fail because “it’s just corporate PR … and also they want to cover their a**” in case they get sued,” he said.

“We don’t need corporate DEI,” The Breakfast Club host added. “Yes, we want diversity, equity, and inclusion. … Real DEI is only going to come from black leadership.”
