I’m Shocked.

I’m shocked.

The W$J tells us that the New Confederacy is concerned, very concerned:

A group of Senate Republicans decried Nasdaq’s push for greater diversity on corporate boards, saying it interfered with board members’ duty to govern in the best interests of shareholders and could harm financial performance. In a letter on Friday, all 12 Republicans on the Senate Banking Committee called on the Securities and Exchange Commission to reject Nasdaq’s proposal to require the thousands of companies listed on its stock exchange to include women, racial minorities, and LGBT individuals on their boards.

“We commend individual firms for the proactive efforts they have already made in recruiting, promoting, and maintaining diverse talent,” the senators, led by Pennsylvania’s Pat Toomey, wrote. “However, it is not the role of Nasdaq…to act as an arbitrator of social policy or force a prescriptive one-size-fits-all solution upon markets and investors.”

Of course the Republicans would be against having women, minorities, and the ‘mos be represented in corporate America. The Republicans are against having women, minorities, and the ‘mos in their party.

    I propose the creation of dozens and hundreds and thousands of openly traded and highly profitable companies in which white men are not allowed on the board in any capacity. I want to see this, just to see the Senate group’s reaction.

    • The SCREEEEEEEE!!!! howls of poutrage over the Holocaust-like persecution of the poor Old Rich White Straight Dudes would shatter windows up and down the East Coast and probably as far inland as Kansas…
