How Diverse Is Your “Diversity”?

Bill WaltonCulture

Walter Williams writes about the muddle of the diversity agenda on college campuses.

“I think we should ask just what is diversity and whether it’s a good thing. How do we tell whether a college, a department or another unit within a college is diverse or not? What exemptions from diversity are permitted?”

He adds, “Ask your average college president or provost whether he even bothers promoting political diversity among faculty. I’ll guarantee that if he is honest — and even bothers to answer the question — he will say no. According to a recent study, professors who are registered Democrats outnumber their Republican counterparts by a 12-1 ratio (http://tinyurl.com/gpp4svq). In some departments, such as history, Democratic professors out number their Republican counterparts by a 33-1 ratio.”

And how diverse are college sports. Not very, he tells us. The diversity overseers seem to have missed this one.

He adds, “The most important issue related to college diversity obsession is what happens to black students. Black parents should not allow their sons and daughters to fall victim to the diversity hustle.”

A very interesting take on things and worth a read. http://walterewilliams.com/diversity-obsession/
