Diversity quotas is FORCE.
It is bigotry. It is systemic.
If you are making decisions purely based upon race that is racism. This defines racial diversity based decisions.
If you are making decisions purely based upon gender/sex that is bigotry as well.
If you are making decisions purely based upon sexual preference that too is bigotry.
There are times when choosing based upon race, gender, etc. are important.
If you are attempting a historical recreation then you will be looking for something that represents the historical facts. To do otherwise is again focusing on diversity purely for diversity sake and ends up being racist, sexist, etc.
If you are attempting to stay true to existing intellectual property and source material then it should not be deemed as racist, sexist, etc. because you did so.
It is actually racist, sexist, etc. when you change those things just so you can say you are being "diverse".
If you are hiring for a position where race, sex, etc. have nothing to do with the job then focusing on any of those traits is the problem.
In such an environment it could be possible to end up with diversity of that type organically or not at all. That is how nature and reality work.
If you FORCE the diversity then you are deciding based upon race, sex, etc. and are actually being RACIST and SEXIST.
There is systemic racism at the moment but it comes in the form of the diversity quotas, the months and special days fixated upon race, sex, etc.
The people who are not racist would not be making decisions that do not require it based upon race.
The most racist people in the world right now are those who are calling everyone else racist while they claim to be fighting racism and at the same time basing most of their decisions on what race someone is.
I am a human. That is my race. My species.
