Seth Grossman says the (now infamous) diversity tape helped his candidacy. He would know best. In the weeks since the story broke, he’s doubled-down repeatedly in other news outlets and touted the backlash in fundraising requests.
Seth says the tape helped, “Because it brought attention to the fact that most Americans, I think, still believe that, in America, every individual should be judged by his talent, character and hard work, and not by how many diversity boxes he can check off on their resume.”
But maybe there are other ways to understand this controversy. Bill Sprouse interviewed Seth a few weeks ago.
