A popular trend in racist America is the resistance to the implementation of DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) launched into corporations and other American institutions. DEI is a program that seeks to thwart the discrimination of people of color within institutions that have been known to allow racist behavior and practices by employees up to the levels of HR.

The concept of DEI is to give people of color a fair chance at advancing without regard to their skin color but based on their work ethic and personal merit. The only reason DEI programs exist is because of the subtle bigotry within American institutions that have for centuries excluded and neutralized people of color, mainly Blacks, from social and economic advancement.

It is equivalent to fighting against Jim Crow laws by instituting the Civil Rights Act to protect against personal and systemic bigotry. The only difference is the name; instead of being called Jim Crow, the trending term for today’s racism is called Systemic Racism. The bottom line being, white people are racist and they enact laws and policies that discriminate against Blacks, women, and other minority groups not white, and to protect the interest of wealthy white men.

DEI is a plan to recruit people inside of organizations to instruct those same white people on how not to be racist, to give equal access to progress, and to understand the basic concept of including minorities in the advancement of the organization. It is that simple, and is meant for the good of the country that has benefited from a majority white power structure for centuries. However, there is a resistance movement that claims DEI is racist itself because it prioritizes people’s race and is against the reasoning of the same Civil Rights laws on the books.

The twisted logic is where the resistance falls apart because there would be no need for Civil Rights laws if there was no racism. But that basic logic escapes the minds of those who are resistant. Not merely because they cannot think on a level of critical thinking, but because they reuse to accept its logic based on the reality of racism. In other words, people who resist DEI are people who would rather be racist and not be held accountable by the law. Logic and laws do not matter to them. Racism and white privilege drives their behavior.


Average citizens, politicians and even religious leaders are on board with the resistance. That is because racism is embedded within the fabric of America going back to its beginning. They cannot conceive letting people of color match their achievements so they fight against laws and policies that will assist in Black advancement. Such as school integration. The courts, all legislation, and private employers are siding with this resistance also, when at the beginning of the roll out of DEI, many companies complied, but outside pressure and boycotts from racist organizations turned them backward.

For instance, the University in Florida “announced Friday it is firing all employees in positions related to diversity, equity and inclusion at the public university. It has closed its office of the chief diversity officer, eliminated DEI positions and administrative appointments, and halted DEI-focused contracts with outside vendors.”

Then they issued a disingenuous disclaimer that reads: “The University of Florida is — and will always be — unwavering in our commitment to universal human dignity. As we educate students by thoughtfully engaging a wide range of ideas and views, we will continue to foster a community of trust and respect for every member of the Gator Nation. The University of Florida is an elite institution because of our incredible faculty who are committed to teaching, discovering, and serving…

The new regulations are based on a bill Gov. Ron DeSantis signed into law in 2023. DeSantis has called DEI programs “discriminatory initiatives.” Florida’s Board of Education defines DEI as ‘any program, campus activity or policy that classifies individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, gender identity or sexual orientation and promotes differential or preferential treatment of individuals on the basis of such classification.’”

The object of the resistance is to reverse Civil Rights laws under the playbook of DEI. It is all the same. Laws made by government to stop racism being challenged by people who would prefer to be racist. They profess that racism does not exist therefore the laws are not needed. But there is ample evidence that systemic racism is currently at work in this country.

Through the justice system, the healthcare system, educational institutions, banking, tech, immigration policies and any other institution that empowers whites to have what they want and to neutralize people of color, systemic racism is the norm in America. The sad thing is people believe the lie that there is no racism so equity programs or Civil Rights laws are not needed. This is delusional thinking and is so obvious that they truly think they are clever enough to make it stick. But as long as they are racist, it will never work.
