The Dilbert Diversity Ceiling

I was reading Scott Adams’s new book, How To Fail At Everything And Still Win Big, which I liked and recommend, and I came across a very useful phrase I have never heard anyone use, not even Steve Sailer. The phrase is “diversity ceiling.” Adams can best describe what he thinks diversity ceiling means in one of his blog posts: 

"A few years later, still working for that large bank, my boss informed me that there wasn’t enough gender and ethnic diversity in management and so there was no hope for a white male like me to get promoted in the foreseeable future. So I looked for another job and left…. 

"Then I went to work at the local phone company, Pacific Bell, and as most of you know, I hit the diversity ceiling again. My boss told me in direct language that a white male could not be promoted into their all-white-guy management ranks because now the public was watching. But I didn’t stay and fight the system because I didn’t think it was winnable. That’s when I started pursuing some entrepreneurial ideas. One of them was Dilbert. [Note: Celebrity Net Worth says Scott Adams is worth  $75 million: “And yeah, the vast majority of that net worth is Dilbert money.”]

I think diversity ceiling is a term that needs to enter the linguistic landscape, as we know if a word or phrase does not exist for something then society will treat it as invisible.
Adams also has some good points in his blog post about the way society can be changed (and when it can’t) that might be useful for immigration patriots.

I am also seeing Scott Adams making very informed arguments about the wisdom of Trump and how the media is not understanding what Trump is doing and why it is working in a way that makes me think he has also not swallowed the multiculti Kool-Aid. Since I think he lives in Berkeley, California that makes Adams pretty amazing.

OH WHAT AN EVIL MAN! I'll never read Dilbert again! I'll write the Village Voice and tell them to boycott the strip!

Oh how could he say that! That wicked man. He's going to start boiling babies in oil and putting people in ovens next! And making lampshades out of their skin and shaving brushes out of their hair! EWWW!

No, seriously, if you google this, you'll read stuff like this from a forum

"In his book, he claims that he hit the "diversity ceiling" multiple times in his early career and grew up in a republican town. It's likely he has some deep seated issues with people different from himself."

Just from that one article, suddenly Scott Adams is evil incarnate and the next Nazi Fuhrer. No excuses. No mitigating circumstances. Just "Witch!" "Child Molester!" and "Racist!" (all accusations of which need no proof or have to defend themselves).

Saddest thing is that its usually young white freaks saying this, trying to make up for all that colonialism by turning an eye as mooslims rape white women silly in front of them.

Since you mention President Trump at the end of this piece I believe his problem if it is one is that he has never held a political office or ever ran for one. Therefore he hasn't learned how to lie to the Amurrican public and service and reinforce their fantasies about life here in Amurrica.
President Trump is simply telling the truth and the way things really are and it is scaring the shit out of the electorate.

Harry Truman (yes he was a race criminal by integrating the armed forces)did say one thing spot on and that is when asked how and why he got the nickname of "Give'em Hell Harry," he was say he never gave anyone hell but he does tell the truth and some people think it is hell. This is what President Trump is doing telling the truth and Amurricans think it is hell or he is unstable. He is not sounding like the usual lying politicians they are used to and expect.

Add it to the lexicon. It serves a purpose as a descriptive phrase.
