From admissions polices, to retention studies, to course offerings, to degree programs, most, if not all colleges and universities are making a concerted effort to achieve “diversity”. But when one strips away all the rhetoric, the posturing, the prefixes, the suffixes, the self-righteousness, and the good intentions, what’s left is no more or less than a manipulation of numbers based on race. How many students of this color and how many students of that color.
In Ward Connerly’s recent essay the latest racial-manipulation admissions plan of the UC regents is revealed, along with some startling information about what may lie behind the changes being made. Read it all – it isn’t long.
Sadly I must wholeheartedly agree with Connerly. The goal of most universities is not to be color-blind It is to be color-coordinated…and white is definitely not in fashion.
