McWhorter: 'Equity' Is a 'Dehumanizing' 'Weasel Word' for 'Token Black' Used by Those who 'Think of Themselves as Gods'

On Friday's broadcast of HBO's "Real Time," Columbia University Professor and New York Times newsletter author John McWhorter argued that "equity" is a "sneaky, terrible" "weasel word" for "bringing people into positions that they're not qualified for yet" and that doing so is "dehumanizing" and "diversity and equity" are just new terms for tokenism.
