Academic Diversity

A joke, of course.

George Will has more:

“Many campuses are intellectual versions of one-party nations — except such nations usually have the merit, such as it is, of candor about their ideological monopolies. In contrast, American campuses have more insistently proclaimed their commitment to diversity as they have become more intellectually monochrome. They do indeed cultivate diversity — in race, skin color, ethnicity, sexual preference. In everything but thought.”

He’s right, of course.

What puzzles me is why, despite this, the universities’ customers, many of whom are paying large sums to go there, do nothing about this. And why do alumni still stump up cash to subsidize an intolerance that many must find repulsive?
