The DEI movement isn’t really about equity or diversity – and it’s DEFINITELY not about inclusion.
The DEI movement isn’t really about equity or diversity – and it’s DEFINITELY not about inclusion. The only world of diversity and inclusion that leftists want to live in is one in which they choose to champion to procure votes. And they use DEI to reprimand and lecture people for being racist just on the basis of being white. What the leftists call “anti-racist” is actually racist but still, the movement continues.
The DEI movement is about many things but all of them include a political agenda and a redistribution of wealth. The DEI movement is about calling Republicans racists, sending millions to universities, and paying supporters oodles of money to help the cause as they bully and harass people and companies into submission.
It appears that this was the case with DEI trainer, Kike Ojo-Thompson. The Daily Mail has released audio of her berating gay high school principal Richard Bilkszto two years ago and unfortunately, Bilkszto killed himself on July 13th after what the Daily Mail calls “two years of emotional turmoil stemming from the encounter.”
At an event in Canada, Bilkszto challenged Ojo-Thompson during a DEI anti-Black racism workshop when she said Canada was more racist than America. He respectfully tried to question her conclusion by using facts and pointed out that public schools that serve Canada’s poorest students are usually better funded than those in the U.S.
Ojo-Thompson, like any good little leftist, went on an emotional tirade and said, “As white people, there’s a whole bunch going on that isn’t your personal experience. It will never be. You will never know it to be so. You will never know it to be so. So your job in this work, as white people, is to believe.”
Yes, believe whatever the righteous DEI “anti-racist” folks tell you.
Ojo-Thompson, who was being paid $7,500 an hour for the class, didn’t stop there. She continued to berate and bully Bilkszto and make him out to be a racist and an example of “white supremacist resistance.”
Ojo-Thompsonhe told Bilkszto that it was interesting that “you and your whiteness think that you can tell me what’s really going on for Black people.
Thou shalt not question a DEI trainer. Their word is gold. Everything they say is factual.
The whole thing led to the superintendent of Bilkszto’s school district, Sheryl Robinson Petrazzini, not sticking up for the guy – but piling on to the shaming of him in a tweet, suggesting that he was a racist. This is not too surprising though after finding an article about Petrazzini organizing a non-white “celebration of belonging” for “racialized staff.”
According to the Daily Mail, after the third session of the class, Bilkszto filed for sick leave and didn’t attend the fourth and final sessions. He filed a complaint with school officials telling that he’d been harassed. The incident was investigated and the Ontario Workplace Safety and Insurance Board concluded that Ojo-Thompson’s behavior was “abusive” and amounted to “workplace harassment.” Bilkszto subsequently received seven weeks of lost pay but his friends and family said he never got over the humiliation of being painted as a white supremacist. In April, he had sued the Toronto District School Board because of Ojo-Thompson’s “defamatory statements” and the unwillingness of administrators to defend him. The case was not yet concluded at the time of his death.
Even though Bilkszto took his own life, DEI trainer Ojo-Thompson remains what many are calling a horrible person, with no apology whatsoever for her words or behavior. In fact, she issued a statement about being a victim saying, “This incident is being weaponized to discredit and suppress the work of everyone committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. While the coverage by right-wing media of this controversy is disappointing and led to our organization and team members receiving threats and vitriol online, we will not be deterred from our work in building a better society for everyone.”
Better for who? Certainly not for Bilkszto or anyone else who comes along and dares to question the all-powerful DEI queens and kings.
