No matter where you go, there you are!
Like scientists being hauled in front of theological authorities during the Renaissance, Denise Young Smith the former Director of Diversity at Apple has been pilloried by the Left for stating the obvious: "There are axes of diversity beyond gender and race."
It is not that the Left disagrees with Ms Young-Smith but factions within the Left want to head off where that observation inevitably leads: That we are all individuals and all minorities of one.
Once stated, then advantages based on attributes like race and gender are diluted and the erosion of the primacy of that attribute starts. The "victim" industry is too lucrative to tolerate the threat of erosion.
The conservative looks at events and observes, "Nothing really changes."
