Political Correctness shoots itself in the foot March 11, 2008Posted by Administrator in Cultural Pessimism, Idiots, Liberal Hypocrisy.
It seems that the Episcopal Church, in a fit of self-righteous arrogance, has seen fit to say to any financial organization it does business with to demand of those same organizations that it diversify their boards; making sure that those boards are culturally and ethnically diverse.
The recent proxy filing by Zimmer, a Warsaw-based orthopedics company, included a shareholder proposal from the church asking the company to take more steps to diversify its board of directors, “all of whom are white males.” The church pointed to the “cozy clubbiness” that too often has characterized U.S. corporate boards.
Slight problem. They sent this notice to a board who had a member named Dr. Augustus White. White, doncha know, is a black man.
The parade of sanctimonious political correctness marches on.
