*(Via The Black Wall Street Times) – The battle against wokeness and Critical Race Theory has reached new heights as the latest sheriff has strolled into town. Now many in the Black community are wondering if DEI is the new n-word.

Diversity, equity, and inclusion are programs and initiatives that work to address unequal representation in education and the workplace. These programs aren’t particularly new, but misinformation about false threats are being circulated by many Republican leaders.

As Americans started their Tuesday morning, they were greeted with news of a bridge collapse in Baltimore, Maryland. In 2020, the predominately Black city elected Brandon Scott as their new mayor.

One Twitter user who has grown a following by sharing inflammatory posts sometimes referred to as “Rage Bait” (content designed to elicit a reaction from viewers) called Scott a “DEI Mayor.” Many were quick to address the blatant racism the user expressed, with one writing, “DEI is basically just a stand-in for the n-word now.”

Of course, a DEI mayor cannot exist because voters must elect candidates for the position.

In January, amidst a slew of several airplane incidents, a Virgin Airlines flight was grounded when a passenger noticed missing bolts on the plane’s wing. Some took this opportunity to place the blame on the company’s diversity policies. One Twitter user saying “I wished these airline companies would focus on hiring competent people and not worrying about DEI.”

Critics of DEI may believe that they don’t see color or that disparities between racial groups no longer exist. However, research points to the contrary.
