Political Activism, 1987
Secular version of the Holy Spirit. Achieved by grouping/categorising people by skin colour, then enforcing differing access to things. Oh, wait…
We all value it. We’re all committed to it. It’s a magic thing which makes everything better. The multi-billion industry has its roots in the 1961 political demand for “affirmative action”, but took an aggressive turn around 1987 - as critical race theory was becoming established - with the Hudson Institute publishing Workforce 2000, and the Harvard Business Review following it 3 years later with R. Roosevelt Thomas’ “From affirmative action to affirming diversity” in 1990. By 1998, sociologist Milton Bennett had created his scale, or the “Developmental Model of Intercultural Sensitivity (DMIS)”.
