We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
"Their original, or at least their stated intent was commendable. They wanted to end the era of “white privilege” in our universities and make them reflect the multicultural nation we had become."
Uh-huh. WHY is it commendable to be multi-cult? What is wrong with a culture that treats women (for example) BETTER than any other culture on earth. I hear the screeching that 'Europe is better to women!!'. (Two of my friends from France will NOT go back to Europe to live. Ever. Visit? Sure.)
Europe may have been 'better' to women, but with the acquisition of their latest 'pets' who freely abuse women with no seeming downside, I protest.
I did look at the first comment and laughed when I saw that 'Diversophile' is not a word and how dare anyone who lays claim to being an English Professor, use it!
Let's face it, the days of any real meaningful education are behind us. Only indoctrination seems to exist on many college campuses today. How sad that the left has been allowed to take over. I know there are a few conservative schools out there but their needs to be more options for young people today.
