Elon Musk and other high-profile figures are criticizing DEI (Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion) initiatives, arguing that they are propaganda words for racism and sexism, and that they often fail or backfire in business.

Critics argue that DEI promotes mediocrity and suppresses free speech and diversity of thought in universities.

“‘Diversity, Equity and Inclusion’ are propaganda words for racism, sexism and other -isms.” Musk wrote. (Trending: Assault Weapons Ban Set To Take Effect, Here’s What To Know)

“This is just as morally wrong as any other racism and sexism.”

“Changing the target class doesn’t make it right!”

“DEI Must Die.”

“Shrinking the pool of candidates based on required race, gender, and/or sexual orientation criteria is not the right approach to identifying the best leaders for our most prestigious universities,” billionaire Bill Ackman wrote on X.

“I don’t think it will be long before we look back on the last few years of free speech suppression and the repeated career-ending accusations of racism for those who questioned the DEI movement,” he later said.

“I think the diversity equity inclusion agenda has been abused in the name of diversity. We have, at many of our universities, totally sacrificed diversity of thought,” Vivek Ramaswamy said.

“I think if we restore true meritocracy in this country,” Ramaswamy added, “and embrace true diversity of thought, chances are we’re actually going to have a bunch of different shades of element and a range of genders and different positions.”

“But let it be not a goal, let it just be a byproduct of actually selecting for people who are the best person for the job, and especially in a university setting, diverse viewpoints, as well.”

The pushback against DEI is growing, with calls for its elimination.
