#SiliconValley’s fake diversity and fake resistance

For the past two decades, the Bay Area has been engaged in a continual celebration of technology disruption — from music and movies to retail to health care and transportation. Along the way, the Bay Area has championed a progressive social agenda in an effort to shape the nation in its image: global, inclusive and multicultural. By and large, it has benefited millions of people, especially those with the education and adaptability to keep up with constant change.
