Before we start, we need to make sure that some tidying up is required to deal with the “diversity, equity, and inclusion” business. Let me fix the problem: ” selective diversity, inequity, and exclusion.” This seems more like it. Now, let us continue.
In the midst of a growing number of U.S. corporations increasingly embracing the acceptance of racial and ethnic discrimination when it comes to hiring, lending, and training, purely to achieve the politically correct goal of making it easier for people to achieve equal the outcomes within the name of “diversity, equity, and inclusion,” legal experts warn that such practices could be in violation of both civil rights laws as well as fiduciary obligations to corporate shareholders. You need to look no further than the burning of the dumpster intentionally fabricated through Disney in the name of “all of the above.”
According to John Solomon's Just the News, one of the companies under criticism is the Pharmaceutical company Pfizer who is the company of COVID-19 ” fame.” Pfizer's latest “Breakthrough Fellowship Program” explicitly excludes Whites as well as Asians in the application process. The company describes its “prestigious” internship program as a “bold move” to “create a workplace for all” (except whites and of course Asians.)
The fellowship is only open to “Black/African American, Latino/Hispanic, and Native American” students based on the requirements of the fellowship. Numerous internships, a fully funded graduate program, as well as years of service in the company are also open. (Did I not mention that whites and Asians do not have to apply?)
Gail Heriot, a law professor at the University of San Diego who is also on the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, said to Just the News that Pfizer's program isn't just illegal, but is it is also part of a growing trend in corporations to make discriminatory decisions against white and Asian individuals in the name of diversity.
In the last few years, more and more American businesses think the civil rights laws aren't applicable to their business. This is an alarming trend. They seem to believe that they are entitled to make discriminatory remarks against Asian Americans and whites without the fear of being held accountable. They will learn that law isn't working that way.
It is important to note that not just the law, but also the U.S Constitution as well “doesn't work that way” with regard to Joe Biden's executive orders and edicts. However, we are here nevertheless. In light of the current state of Democratic-driven racism in America and the racial divide that we are witnessing.
“Shockingly,” Pfizer didn't respond to a request for comments via Just the News, but the company did state in its 2021 report that it aims to “embed DEI [diversity, equity, and inclusion] into our DNA,” and CEO Albert Bourla in 2020 made ” equity” one of the company's ” core values.” “We don't just talk about the importance of equity,” Bourla stated when he made the announcement. “We put our words into action.”
While Pfizer might not be the Lone Ranger in its clear infraction of the lawful rights, in my humble opinion, their “Breakthrough Fellowship Program” is one of the most lucrative according to the BFP website.
Students will be able to apply for the program during their junior year in college. Successful Fellows will be able to participate in the five elements in the program:
- A 10-week summer internship for college students who are about to graduate.
- Two years of full-time employment following graduation from Undergraduate.
- After 2 years, you will be awarded a fully-funded scholarship to finish an entire, two-year MBA, MPH or MS Statistics program.
- Internships during summer between the first and second year of the MBA or MPH as well as MS Statistics program
- Return to Pfizer to find employment following the program's completion
The 2023 applications for the Breakthrough Fellowship Program will open close to the end of summer 2022 and beginning in Fall 2022.
