Chalkbeat has announced the launch of a tool that will allow journalists to choose their sources by race or gender identity. The practice offered by the tool is being coined “source auditing.”

The creator of the tool, Chalkbeat, is an NYC-based nonprofit organization dedicated to “essential education reporting.” Their source auditing tool aims to give journalists the ability to add more “diversity” to their reporting by cherry-picking sources based on their ethnicity, race, gender identity, and age. The only professional qualifier optioned by the tool is “source title,” which is a nominal experience qualifier at best.

The announcement of the new diversity tool also encourages leaders in the newsroom to implement the tool with “broader diversity, inclusion, equity, and belonging efforts.”

Chalkbeat’s sponsors include the Bezos Family Foundation, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Democracy Fund, and a plethora of other elite, left-leaning philanthropy groups.

The upward trend of deliberately favoring candidates in academia based on race for "equality" has backfired recently, highlighting a discriminatory effect on those of a white ethnic background. Last year, an NYC school sought to sort kids by race for a social justice program.

Putting another spotlight on the ironically discriminatory effects of rigid woke efforts to be anti-discriminatory, Ibram Kendi accidentally undermined his views on white privilege and systemic racism in a now-deleted tweet that read, "More than a third of White students lied about their race on college applications, and about half of these applicants lied about being Native Americans. More than three-fourths of these students who lied about their race were accepted."

Many anticipate the Supreme Court stepping in to squash one of the biggest perpetrators of discriminatory obligatory diversity: affirmative action. The high court is set to call into question how white applicants and Asian Americans fare in the college admissions process as a result of race and ethnicity currently being an accepted determinative factor.
