How does being diverse help a company or team?
Why stop at Microsoft?
Let's look at the NBA Portland Trail Blazers. No women, not enough south-Americans, Asians, native-Americans or even whites!
Doesn't the NBA realize they would be so much better off if they focused on diversity instead of their narrow minded goal of getting the best basketball players?
That Paul Allen guy is a performance and results bigot. Just look at what he is doing with the Seattle Seahawks.
I see anti-diversity examples all over Allen's successful investments, with a clear focus on talent, skill, work ethic, etc. instead of a person's race or sex.
What kind of world will this result in, if people are rewarded for what they contribute instead of what they look like and whether or not they have any balls?
