Perhaps one day leftists will learn not to pick a fight with X owner Elon Musk because they always end up on the losing end. Anti-Trump Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban became the world’s richest man’s latest victim Thursday.

The subject of the spat was Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) policies, which Musk is an avowed opponent of. DEI disavows meritocracy and instead discriminates based on race and religion.

As billionaire Bill Ackman brilliantly laid out, a person’s degree of oppression under DEI is determined based on where one resides on an “intersectional” pyramid. Whites, Jews, and Asians are deemed oppressors, and a subset of people of color, LGBTQ people, and women are considered to be oppressed.

“DEI is racist because reverse racism is racism, even if it is against white people,” he concluded.

The dispute between Cuban and Musk began after Musk replied to liberal activist Ed Krassenstein, who had his own back-and-forth with the X owner over whether DEI was racist.

Discrimination on the basis of race, which DEI does, is literally the definition of racism

Cuban saw this exchange and decided he would try to ‘educate’ Musk on how ‘wonderful’ DEI is in a long-winded, nonsensical thread.

Let me help you out and give you my thoughts on DEI
1. Diversity
Good businesses look where others don’t, to find the employees that will put your business in the best possible position to succeed.
You may not agree, but I take it as a given that there are people of various… https://t.co/L00fl6ggUD

2. Equity
Treating people equally does not mean treating them the same.
I made the mistake for a lot of years thinking it did.

Equity is a core principle of business.
Put your employees in a position to succeed. Recognize their differences and play to their strengths where…

3. Inclusion
One of my favorite sayings is that “Great employees reduce the stress of those around them”

Great companies create environments that reduce unnecessary stress of their employees (Im not talking hitting quota or getting the product out the door stress),…

5. So what’s the conclusion ?
If you don’t think there is a need for DEI and it doesn’t create a competitive advantage for your company, just look at the @x posts/replies/quotes below.

These are the same people that work for you or are your co-workers. Everyone is…

Musk responded with a brilliant one-sentence question regarding whether these DEI policies would apply on the basketball court.


Cool, so when should we expect to see a short white/Asian women on the Mavs?


What makes Musk’s reply brilliant is that he exposes both Cuban’s hypocrisy and the DEI fraud in just a few words. First, anyone with brain cells knows that a short female player of any race would get destroyed on the basketball court because they lack the requisite skills to succeed.

Cuban in his heart knows this and the current Mavericks roster bears this out. Sports are one of the last vestiges of true meritocracy in America because coaches and players of all races get held accountable for not performing.

If Cuban followed DEI’s tenets to a tee, the Mavericks would never win a basketball game. Thus, the owner’s commitment to these practices is little more than worthless virtue-signaling.

X users sided with Musk in a series of hilarious replies.

“We can’t do that Elon. The NBA is for the best basketball players in the world. In order to be competitive, we must have the best possible players on our team. And it just so happens that extremely tall & athletic men are better….”

Wait a minute

Cuban has yet to respond to Musk’s burn and would be wise to remain silent.
