Elon Musk’s recent comments on diversity hiring have stirred controversy, particularly regarding aviation safety and the recruitment of graduates from historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs).

Musk’s remarks, which questioned the intelligence of HBCU graduates and criticized diversity hiring policies, have reignited the debate over meritocracy and diversity.

“It will take an airplane crashing and killing hundreds of people for them to change this crazy policy of DIE,” he wrote. (Trending: Fauci’s COVID Missteps Are Coming Back To Haunt Him)

“People will die due to DEI.”

“Do you want to fly in an airplane where they prioritized DEI hiring over your safety?” Musk asked.

“Merit should be the only reason for hiring, especially where your family’s lives are at stake.”

This comes in the wake of previous contentious interactions and the potential impact on his business interests, including a recent advertiser boycott.

The debate also intersects with broader concerns about academic performance, socioeconomic factors, and the impact of diversity initiatives on safety.

“[D]ata show that socioeconomic background factors—family income, parental education, and race/ethnicity—account for a large and growing share of the variance in students’ SAT scores over the past twenty years,” UC Berkeley researcher Saul Geiser wrote.

“More than a third of the variance in SAT scores can now be predicted by factors known at students’ birth, up from a quarter of the variance in 1994. Of those factors, moreover, race has become the strongest predictor.”
