The entertainment industry is a complete diversity trainwreck.
It’s not just parts that are being ‘color-cast’ for no other reason than diversity, but writers, directors and producers are being fast-tracked into roles that they have no experience or competence in just for the sake of diversity.
And the Emmy’s became their own diversity trainwreck.
“Let’s give ourselves a hand!”
He really said that! It made me laugh.
He wanted accolades for this disaster. It made me laugh—and wonder just how tone-deaf this award show could possibly be. The answer presented itself, repeatedly, and with much unearned self-congratulation: very tone-deaf.
He is chairman of the Television Academy Hayma Washington, who came on stage right before the last act of a miserable Emmy Awards telecast, and repeated the night’s running theme: This, the 70th Emmy Awards, features the most diverse and inclusive group of nominees ever. Yet the tepid response he received—he had to literally cajole the crowd to applaud itself, a rarity for this industry
Diversity is not talent. It’s not accomplishment. It’s hollow virtue signaling. And even lefties are tired of applauding it.
Especially since within the industry, it’s increasingly coming at their expense. Talented people are being sidelined because of the color of their skin and being replaced with people who are there only because of their supposed identity.
But who needs talent anyway when you can embrace a meta-narrative of diversity and congratulate yourselves on making history while taking identity politics shot at the supposed construct of an oppressive majority.
