Mike Adams, professor of criminal justice at UNC-Wilmington and wielder of one of the sharpest pens around, takes on the new Diversity program at the University of Oregon here.
It is amazing how far universities have gone in pursuit of the chimera of “diversity” when those efforts so clearly detract from their educational mission. The problem, I think, is one that Thomas Sowell discussed in his book Conflict of Visions. Most college administrators seem to have the “unconstrained vision” of people who think that it’s possible to do everything. They believe that they can give their students a superb education and at the same time combat social division and inequality, promote better health, stimulate economic development, etc. Just focusing on education would be too limited and boring a role for these people.
