Isn’t Corporate America Diverse Enough?

NEW YORK, NY – There seems to have been quite the kerfuffle lately about certain companies and their recent promotion practices. Now I’ve been in the corporate world as a publisher for nearly three decades and I think we’ve all done more than enough to engender representation in our ranks.

This publication, the esteemed Boredroom News, has always been a leader in hiring men from diverse ethnic backgrounds. We already have quite a few whites, some Scandinavians, a Canadian or two, and at least one Scots-Irish (a “mixed-race,” if you will). People will say, however, that the senior leadership must reflect the changing world; look no further than 2014, when I named my good friend Juan Carlos to our board of directors to show our commitment to the Hispanic community. As the trendsetter, we have seen our peers follow in our wake. The New York Times, another fine institution, reportedly even had an oriental fellow back in the ’90s. What more does the peanut gallery demand?

Indeed, many of us recognize the need for intersectionality and have already diversified beyond ethnicity or skull phrenotype, and so almost every firm endeavors to hire across the social-economic strata. Boredroom News reached all the way down to a state school to show that we care about the lower classes, and I can tell you that “Mr. UC-Berkeley” is doing just fine in his new role as copy boy.

We have a rainbow coalition (but the straight kind) rising through our editorial ranks, and I assure you, as publisher and proprietor, Boredroom News will exploit the labor of every peon equally.
