Moving the Goalposts

The other side has the luxury of moving goalposts in defining "diversity." At one extreme, "diversity" can mean only black Americans. At the other extreme, it can mean anyone but a straight white non-Jewish heterosexual cisgendered man. With lots of room and many gradations in between.
If you think SV has lots of diversity because SV [Silicon Valley] firms have lots of Asians, then you're using the definition of diversity that means anyone but white people. But the left uses "diversity" in the sense of the SV not having enough of it to mean that the line is between blacks/Hispanics and whites/Asians, meaning in this instance, Asians are considered to be honorary white people, or at least not diverse.
