A New Low For "Diversity"

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY AUGUST 15, 2019

         DO YOU GET TIRED OF HEARING ABOUT “DIVERSITY”, AS I DO? IT’S EVERYWHERE. TO THE LEFT THAT DOESN’T MEAN IDEOLOGICAL DIVERSITY, SUCH AS HEARING AND CONSIDERING THE VIEWS AND VALUES OF CHRISTIANS AND CONSERVATIVES. NO, DIVERSITY TO THEM MEANS HIRING PEOPLE WHO ARE SECULAR LIBERALS, BUT ARE NON WHITE AND NOT MALE AND PREFERABLY NOT STRAIGHT. A TRANSGENDER LIBERAL DEMOCRAT WOULD BE THEIR IDEAL.

         DIVERSITY HAS BEEN TAKEN TO A NEW LEVEL IN ENGLAND. THE DAILY MAIL REPORTS DOZENS OF UNIVERSITIES PLAN TO ADMIT STUDENTS WHO DON’T MEET THEIR CRITERIA AND WILL PAY AN EXTRA YEAR’S TUITION TO HELP THEM CATCH-UP.

         THE REASON? THEY’RE CLEARING SPACE FOR STUDENTS WITH SUBSTANDARD GRADES OR GOOD GRADES IN WHAT THE SCHOOLS CONSIDER THE WRONG SUBJECTS IN ORDER TO INCREASE “DIVERSITY” IN TARGETED COURSES.

         WON’T THIS REDUCE INCENTIVE TO PERFORM WELL IN WHAT WE CALL HIGH SCHOOL? WHY STUDY IF YOU WILL GET A FREE PASS INTO COLLEGE AND TUITION FOR THE FIRST YEAR? THINK THAT WILL CREATE A WORK ETHIC WHERE NONE EXISTS? I DON’T, BUT DIVERSITY IS NOW KING AND THE RULING IDEOLOGY MUST BE HONORED. I’M CAL THOMAS.
