White Nationalist aren’t hiding.
What they fear is balance.

“The calls to end DEI have gotten progressively louder the more distance we have from the Supreme Court’s ruling declaring that affirmative action, which higher education institutions had practiced since the early 1970s, was a violation of the 14th Amendment’s equal protection clause.”

“In an op-ed for Time, Eddie S. Glaude Jr., the James S. McDonnell Distinguished University Professor at Princeton University, discussed at length the attempts of the chorus of conservative voices to silence DEI, writing “Under the guise of a commitment to a classical liberal education, right-wing critics are pursuing illiberal ends that deny the value of diversity all together. They ignore or downplay the history of exclusion that has defined much of the history of places like Princeton, Harvard, or Yale. For them, meritocracy alone resolves historical inequity.”

2.) ELON MUSK DECLARES ‘DEI MUST DIE’ AS TESLA OWNER CALLS TO END DIVERSITY, EQUITY, AND INCLUSION INITIATIVES

Musk’s comments on DEI also come as the EEOC is suing Tesla Inc., which Musk owns, over concerns raised by its employees of widespread racial harassment.

According to Yahoo, Musk said in a Dec. 15 post, “DEI must DIE. The point was to end discrimination, not replace it with different discrimination.”

Musk’s sentiments align with the recent efforts of conservatives to eliminate DEI positions in higher education, including a recent announcement that the University of Oklahoma would be complying with an executive order issued by the state’s governor, Kevin Stitt, that eliminated all diversity, equity, and inclusion offices at the state’s public universities. 

In an op-ed for Time, Eddie S. Glaude Jr., the James S.

Is Elon Musk Right About DEI? Exploring Popular Critiques Of DEI

DEI Causes Discrimination
Many opponents of DEI argue that DEI causes discrimination. One former Black Lives Matter activist argued that “DEI” is just another way to say “anti-white.” In the fall of 2023, a workplace DEI program at Meta was accused of discriminating against white people. After the 2020 murder of George Floyd, corporations were pushed to make pledges and promises declaring their commitments to anti-racism and DEI. During this time, organizations were pouring exorbitant amounts of money into these efforts, with the Washington Post reporting that the 50 largest public U.S. companies committed nearly $50 billion to address racial inequality.

There isn’t widespread evidence that DEI causes discrimination—on the contrary, it could be argued that with the spotlight on DEI, many corporations have instead engaged in performative practices to gain public favor. In 2022, Wells FargoWFC made headlines after it was reported that the company engaged in sham job interviews of “diverse” (which the company defined as a woman or a person of color) candidates. Within the NFL, one of their DEI policies includes the Rooney Rule, which requires every NFL team with a head coach opening to interview at least one or more minority and/or female candidates for the position. In 2022, former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores filed a lawsuit against the NFL, alleging that two NFL teams conducted “sham interviews” in order to appear diverse.
