Affirmative Action Diversity Equity Inclusion

Executive Order 11246 introduced Affirmative Action to American society in 1968 attempting to "right the wrongs" of government-sanctioned racial discrimination & racial-oppression against Black Americans. The concept of taking affirmative action in diversifying business relationships has become the status quo in modern-society. Recently, the 2023 U.S. Supreme Court repealed Affirmative Action in university admissions, but this outdated legislation has transformed into Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion using a new set of metrics.

The Future is Minority

Founded in 1776, the United States of America conducted her first national census in 1790 and since-then has racially categorized persons for the purposes of political representation, government spending, immigration, and economic development. Current projections by the U.S. Census Bureau expect "America's White Majority" will end by 2045 opting for immigrants, mixed-race citizens, Native-Americans, and Foundational Black American populations.   Register Here.
