“Diversity … means non-whites,” said Stefan Molyneux recently, addressing a buzzword repeatedly used by leftists as a euphemism to subvert meritocracy in favor of racial, ethnic, and other non-merit based quotas.

Molyneux made the comments during a July 8 episode of his YouTube show entitled, The Death of Canada. Prepare Yourselves Accordingly.:

"Nobody says, ‘We’re bringing a lot of white people from Belgium, that adds to our diversity,’ or, ‘We’re bringing in a lot of people from Poland, that adds [to our diversity].’ It always and forever means non-whites. That’s what ‘diversity’ means. I’m not trying to do anything other than be very frank about what the word actually means [when used by leftists].”

Molyneux highlighted Europe’s diversity — linguistically, culturally, ethnically, and otherwise — as an example of legitimate diversity ignored by the Left to push for demographic shifts via contemporary immigration policies:

“Europe is incredibly diverse. And what does everyone say? ‘Europe needs diversity.’ Well, what does that mean? It means Europe needs non-whites. That’s all it means. ‘Diversity’ means non-whites, generally, displacing whites.”

Democrats and the broader Left regularly frame “diversity” as a value unto itself; reduction of white populations is cast as a positive demographic change. They also support maintenance and expansion of "affirmative action" — a racial- and ethnic-based set of policies for determining hiring, firing, and promotional decisions within businesses and government.
