IL governor demonstrates diversity by drinking chocolate milk

Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner drinks chocolate milk to show that he supports diversity

"The chocolate syrup represents diversity", said Stoudemire, explaining it like a weird communion.

"This chocolate syrup represents diversity - women, people of color, people with disabilities, the aging population, generation X, Y and Z", Mr. Stoudemire continued, before squeezing a generous amount of chocolate syrup into the milk.

During a presentation about diversity in the workplace during a Black History Month event, Rauner was joined by Tyronne Stoudemire, Hyatt Hotel's vice president of global diversity, on the stage at Chicago's James R. Thompson Center, the Chicago Tribune reported. He then squirted some chocolate syrup from a Hershey's bottle into the glass.

While the Chicago Tribune notes that Stoudemire has been using this analogy for 16 years at various corporate events, it is Rauner that has become the face for this humiliating and embarrassing spectacle. When you look at most organizations, diversity sits at the bottom of the organization.

Trump warns of 'very rough' sanctions on NKorea
But her father has ratcheted up tensions during his presidency by engaging in a war of words with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The sanctions are meant to exclude the possibility of companies of North Korea to circumvent the existing sanctions regime.

He said you don't get inclusion until you stir it up. He hands over a spoon to Gov. Rauner and tells him to stir it. "Inclusion makes the mix work", he added. He also revealed that Rauner "didn't know what he was getting into" when he called him onstage.

The governor, who served as Stoudemire's "assistant", took a big sip of the chocolate milk and exclaimed "diversity!"

And this shouldn't need to be said, but at least Rauner isn't a Nazi, like Arthur Jones who is running unopposed in the state's 3rd Congressional District.

Following the incident, Rauner's spokeswoman Rachel Bold issued a statement. "And it actually tastes pretty good I'm not going to ask the governor to drink it because it might not be good, but it does taste good", Stoudemire said. "It was one of two demonstrations at the event, both of which received ovations from the crowd", she said.
