13339: Delayed WTF 33: 3% At 0%?

MultiCultClassics is often occupied with real work. As a result, a handful of events occur without the expected blog commentary. This limited series—Delayed WTF—seeks to make belated amends for the absence of malice.

A MultiCultClassics visitor recently asked, “In New York, a city that’s over 27% Hispanic/Latin@, how did the 3% Conference manage to put together an NYC Conference that features 0% Latin@s?”

Hey, the speaker roster also has a low number of female creative directors, the allegedly underrepresented group that is supposed to be the organization’s primary focus. The 3% Conference has always advocated for diverted diversity—jumping on the White women bandwagon—versus showing any interest in true diversity. Plus, the girl gang will probably count the Manhattan Center waitstaff and custodial crew as evidence of cultural inclusion.

Before anyone gets all excited about the Hispanic surname that has recently popped up on that page, I'd like to point out that a Spanish European woman isn't exactly the kind of Latin@ that populates New York, or pertains to the US POC community whatsoever.

Nice try, 3%. Thanks for playing, try better next time.
