NASDAQ to require one woman and one non-white or LGBTQ on Company Boards?

Or be delisted. Thoughts?

How are they going to verify if a person is gay or straight? Or a man or woman?  Sexual preferences and gender identity are fluid these days.

    Well why would they stop there with their newfound acceptance of critical theory?  Aren't they going to help "smash Capitalism" and also "smash Patriarchy" by stopping their capitalist, patriarchal operations?  Or at least turn it over to the "marginalized" and "oppressed" groups that they claim they want to help?

    Interesting that NASDAQ wishes to impose onto others how they should follow the Marxist based critical theory.  But doubtful they are going to apply any of that to their own operations or themlseves personally.  

    It really is now past time to create an entire new anti-Establishment ... new NASDAQ, new Facebook, new Google, new banks, new Hollywood  .... everything in fact.  Especially since the previous "revolutionaries" are now happy being minor bit players in the Establishment where they can lord it over equal straight white men, but never actually touch the levers of power of the privileged elite.  This is the arrangement that NASDAQ, and indeed every corporate financial donor to these ideological causes loves to promote.  Go to bed with the "victim groups" by smashing on cis-White-men as if they hold the power to "oppress" equal women and minorities and non heterosexuals.  That way, nobody looks at -them-.

    WHY OH WHY wouldn't they actually think this through?

    Should it be acceptable to have a company board of all women, but not of all men?  Should it be acceptable to have a company of all one particular race other than white?

    Why would you build a rule that puts the same thumb on the same scale regardless of the demographics involved?  If you're trying to improve heterogeneity, why create a rule that simply pushes one direction?

    The way the rules are stated now makes it perfectly reasonable to claim that they are being sexist against men.  Needlessly.  Pointlessly.

    You can have your cake and eat it too by simply stating the rule as precluding the board being all of any of the following demographics:  Men, women, hetero, homo, etc.

    And yes, if you believe having a board of all men is wrong, you should also believe that having a board of all women is wrong.

    This is direct proof that our corporate rulers are involved in social engineering.  They are the enemy of the people and need to be called out as such.  This institution along with any others promoting this same nonsense need to be put on a list for a future repatriation.  They've gone too far now.  Enough is enough.

    Hopefully this results in the downfall of NASDAQ.

    It's so ridiculous. Superficial things like race, sex, and sexual preference shouldn't matter. Skill should matter. If white straight men are best for the job, then white straight men should be hired. If people don't like it, then tough. This is a business not some stupid school club.

    That's the corporations problem. They need to fix the problem and get it done. It looks like corporate heads have taken their 1st step into a no b.s., it's either done or it isn't, no ambiguity, someone else is calling the shots and might fire you, world.

    I think that this, like affirmative action in general, is very bad for women, non-whites, and LGBTQ people. There are many qualified, capable people in these groups but with a rule like this, everyone will assume they're just a token.

    The woke capitalists are the biggest promoters of critical race theory & other Marxist mumbo jumbo...Including LGBT in this is insane. Other characteristics like race and sex are at least visible and verifiable. Sexual orientation is invisible. The left wants to create more and more designated groups to build their coalition. This is about political power. It is going to be White men vs everyone else.

    @Anoymous: It already is white men v. everyone else. The thing is white men in the liberal elite are some of the worst offenders of this behavior. As I said, we can either fight back now or later, but sooner or later war will have to happen to end this.  

    ---

    Requiring discrimination to favor the liberal list of protected classes is the accepted way of doing things these days. Just another reason we should kill the liberal elite in this country. It's weird agreeing with communists on that though. lol

    White straight men it's time to kill the elite. If we don't do it now then they will just pulling us further down until we are given no other choice but to kill them anyway. You can pretend you will change things using the system, but when the system is rigged against you and the favored classes take majority power in the state you will find out the hard way that war is the only way. 

    It's also worth noting that liberals crying about discrimination and then being the only people in society that actively use discrimination to reach their political and social goals is noted and rejected. 

    I am however curious how the corporate class expects to stay alive when the left hates them and the right hates them. Who exactly is going to come to their defense? Is making an enemy of the right a good idea when the left has a long history of killing corporate leaders? lol
