The Diversity Mania in Full Swing



Text  



This document from the University of North Carolina-Asheville shows just how far gone some schools are with their fixation on diversity.

We’re told that UNC Asheville will have achieved diversity when:


Classes will include substantial variety in the participants’ religion, ideas, political convictions, gender, ability, gender preference, socio-economic status, race, and ethnicity, even if these differences are not visible or otherwise evident.


Does that mean what it seems to — that each individual class should have all that diversity? How would it be possible to accomplish that, short of omniscient and omnicompetent administrators assigning students to classes? Achieving diversity is thus on a par with squaring the circle. That’s just the way the diversophiles want it, of course.
