‘John is a homogeneity hire’ people would say when a white person is hired in a white majority company or organization.

However, when organizations are under pressure to limit tribalism in their hiring process they would start hiring for diversity. They chose atypical people. ‘Chijoke is a diversity hire’ people would say when an African is hired at Apple for exemple.

According to liberal theories, a modern economy needs a social class more loyal to making money, than loyal to a place of birth, a country, a tribe or nation. A universal tribe united by money!

Economical tribes are the new social construct, liberals are pushing in our countries as substitution to traditional affiliations.… Read more
