Illinois governor proves his love of diversity by drinking chocolate milk

One small sip for thirst, one big gulp for diversity.

On Thursday Illnois Gov. Bruce Rauner (R) was on hand for a Black History Month event in Chicago where he demonstrated his appreciation for diversity and inclusion in the corporate world by means of visual aids.

Hyatt Corporation’s Vice President Global Diversity and Inclusion Tyronne Stoudemire, who was hosting the event, served both as prop man and narrator for the lesson.

He began by pouring milk from a pint container into a glass that Rauner held. Next, he added an ounce or so of chocolate syrup from a squirt bottle. The syrup, which has a greater specific density than milk, settled quickly to the bottom of the glass.

Stoudemire went ahead with his metaphor:

This chocolate syrup represents diversity. When you look at most organizations, diversity sits at the bottom of the organization.You don’t get inclusion until you actually stir it up.  want you to stir it up, governor.

Rauner did as told, then took a deep quaff of the milk. After that he flashed the crowd a thumbs up and said, “It’s really, really good! Diversity!”

Somewhere in this is an ethnic joke. We leave it to readers to divine it for themselves.
