Jordan Peterson and James Lindsay started a "Resign for Diversity" campaign urging white wokies to be the "QUIT" in "EQUITY" 🤣
· May 25, 2021 ·

Once upon a time, a moderate conservative named Noah opined that we need a campaign to tell the woke to put their money where their mouth is:

Shortly thereafter, esteemed Marvel supervillain Dr. Jordan Peterson stepped in to say he agreed:

Things only accelerated from there as superstraight mathematician Dr. James Lindsay decided to bring Peterson's vision to fruition:

Just look at the scheming going on between these two ne'er-do-wells!

The idea behind the "Resign for Diversity" campaign is simple: if you are a woke white person who believes we need to overhaul all of society to eliminate merit on the basis of racial "equity," then you can be the first to show your devotion by quitting your job and giving it to a person you think is oppressed.


The Post Millennial quickly picked up the ball, writing a full article that asked if you're a racist if you don't resign:

The outlet noted multiple cases where this was an actual talking point of woke disciples. Here were just a few of the examples:

  • A column by Sohum Pal in a 2017 issue of Yale News instructed: "White students: Take a few steps back. You already know: when we enter white-dominated spaces, we take on the implicit roles of leadership, expending invaluable emotional and intellectual labor. It is time we were given the titles and power we deserve."
  • An AMS blog in the same year told white people, specifically "white cis het" men: "Not to alarm you, but I probably want you to quit your job, or at least take a demotion."
  • Jack Kelly writes in Forbes that "To Fight Systemic Racism, CEOs And High-Profile Professionals Should Step Down And Offer Their Jobs To People Of Color."
  • Joan Walsh, in The Nation, instructed white people to Step Up—and Step Back—Right Now. Walsh's message was specifically for white people protesting alongside BLM in the wake of George Floyd's death in May 2020.

Here's another recent one from WIRED:

Make sure to tell the next person who laments about our nation's lack of equity that they can lead by example!

They can step right up and be the QUIT in EQUITY!

Meanwhile, the rest of us will be striving to be the "quality" in "equality" like those wise founding dudes once envisioned.
