The publication reports that the "bats—t" conspiracy theory "involves Barack Obama amassing a secret $400 million war chest, then cahootsing with former Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte to disrupt vote tabulation in key swing states using Italian military satellites." Above the Law writes, "somehow this was all coordinated at the US Embassy in Rome, according to Brad Johnson, a self-described retired 'CIA Station Chief' and current Epoch Times columnist."

Have it ever occurred to you that people prefer natural diversity and inclusion instead of force ones.
Has it ever occurred to you that "forced diversity" is a bullshit term? This post pretty much sums it up.There Is no such thing as "forced diversity". There doesn't need to be a justification for having diverse stories.
Nothing grinds my gears when I hear writers complain about forced diversity or, having diversity forced down our throats, or trying to find a reason to "justify" making their stories diverse. Like your WIP is litterally set in a world with dragons, magic, and witches but having a Asian dude is where you draw the line and need to justify him and his existence somehow? That's just bullshit. No one ever says a story with a bunch of straight white dudes is "forced". There's never any justification for a story to have only or majority white dudes.
When you really break it down people who use "forced diversity" unironically use mean, "forced Diversity" is when diverse people appear in a work for the sole purpose of garnering attention and/or sales or "Forced Diversity" is when diverse people are poorly written.
The first one usually heard cries of pandering. But that's all advertising is its pandering. People who are usually the ones being pandered to seem to have an issue with it when it's done for others. Like of course you'd market a book about black people to gasp black people. That's smart marketing and knowing your audience. In the world of film Tyler perry is a master at that.(no matter how little I think of his movies). And the vast majority of the time it's never the "sole" reason a character exists, just the one people use to denounce said character. It's one of the many reason that make up the fully developed character. Which leads me to my next point.
People say a diverse character is "forced" if they poorly written. They never say this about white straight dudes. I can think of dozens of horribly written white dude characters who have never been called forced. Just badly written. White characters seem to be given more leeway in this regard. If a diverse character isn't perfect and gave great flaws and motivations they are automatically called "forced". This goes to my earlier point of needing "a reason" or "justification" for diverse characters. Which is just asanine.
