Not diverse or inclusive enough? You're outta here

PayPal logoThe public is finding out that PayPal has teamed up with the Southern Poverty Law Center to determine who should be banned from e-commerce.

PayPal CEO Dan Schulman revealed in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that he's sitting down with the discredited civil rights group – and others – to see who aligns with their "corporate values." When asked to explain further, Schulman told WSJ: "Probably the most important value to us is diversity and inclusion."

Political pundit Richard Randall finds that scary. "It concerns me greatly," he continues. "It doesn't matter who starts making the decision that we're going to ban this person or morally judge this person over there."

SPLC logoHe says he once thought the SPLC was a good group that fought for the oppressed – and maybe they once did.

"[But] it didn't take long for me to realize that they are a money-raising institution," he shares, "and that it behooves them to have a boogieman year after year after year after year that they can raise funds on."

Which, he says, is probably why the SPLC keep fighting phantoms and ghosts.

"If you have something that is based on identifying hate groups ... and it turns out that our society is actually getting better and there are fewer hate groups, fewer hateful people, and fewer hate crimes," he suggests, "if you're in that business, as it were, you have to manufacture something."

He says it's another case of the demand for racism and homophobia outpacing the supply.
