The Diversity Appeal is a new employee magazine targeted at the minority workers of FedEx Express. It's brand-new, and not yet widely circulated, but if you look at your station's bulletin board, you'll probably find a copy. It's a major "coincidence" that a minority-targeted publication just happens to appear after all of the discrimination suits filed against FedEx. To me, it's a tawdry attempt to show how PC FedEx Express has become, and that they are "on board" when it comes to diversity. It looks like they beat the bushes to find every type of minority possible to feature in this publication, be it religious, lifestyle, race, etc. I can just see managers running through the halls trying to find someone who is Muslim, Hindu, Gay, Chinese or whatever else, just so they can be used as fodder for this rag. FedEx also invented a series of diversity awards that have been presented to various minority leaders such as Kareem Abdul Jabbar, again specifically created to serve the need for FedEx to appear to be diverse and politically correct. A more disturbing trend has been the blatant and obvious push to promote people of color into management positions, even if they aren't qualified. I've seen plenty of superbly qualified Caucasian applicants passed-over in favor of minority candidates who were completely sub-par, just so FedEx looks good. Sorry, but this is just plain wrong. The best qualified person should get the job, and we don't need a phony-baloney magazine that trumpets how great FedEx is at recognizing diversity. Even the name is a joke, a direct rip-off of the Memphis newspaper, The Commercial Appeal. What a pathetic response by an equally pathetic upper management team.
