Sen. J.D. Vance, R-Ohio., condemned an article published by Forbes about how to “decenter Whiteness” in the workplace, and declared his staff is investigating the organization of the woman who wrote it to see if it gets any Ohio money.

In an article on the Forbes website, “3 Ways To Decenter Whiteness In Your Workplace,” senior contributor Janice Gassam Asare, who founded the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion consultancy BWG Business Solutions, talked about how to remove “Whiteness” from the workplace to better cater to people “of color.”

She described “White-centering” as a system that “prioritizes White dominant culture to the detriment of non-White groups and cultures,” noting that it “has been given many names including the White gaze and Whiteness as the default.” She went on to suggest, “Because White-centering is often left unexamined and unchecked, equity and justice have continued to evade organizations.”

Vance was one of many who bristled at the piece and its rhetoric.

“I’m just done with this s—. It’s racist and it’s gross. Forbes should be ashamed of themselves for publishing it,” he wrote. “The author is a ‘diversity, equity, and inclusion’ consultant. I’ve directed my staff to investigate whether her ‘business’ receives any public money from Ohio.”

Other public figures condemned both the piece itself and Forbes for sharing it.

“So sick of this anti-American hate and racism from corporate media and corporate America,” The Federalist editor-in-chief Mollie Hemingway wrote. “People who push such racism are bad people destroying the country.”

“The only way to ‘Decenter Whiteness’ is by firing White people, because being White is not belief system or a faith or a way of living, it is an immutable characteristic,” fellow Federalist writer David Harsanyi wrote.

“There’s no reverse racism, it’s just pure racism,” Republican presidential hopeful Vivek Ramaswamy wrote.
