Skip to comments.New minority label at CUNY: 'Jewish'
Posted on 06/03/2012 6:39:55 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement
Something isnt kosher about a CUNY scheme to single out Jews, angry professors charge.
Touting a move to make its faculty more diverse, CUNY administrators have broken out Jews into a separate minority group: White/Jewish.
CUNY insists some faculty want the label, instead of being lumped in as just white. But the theistic tag has outraged both Jewish and non-Jewish professors, and sparked a furor.

Try having some “diversity” when producing integrated circuits.
Result: an IC chip with the reliability of Obama.
Try having some “diversity” when producing physicisians.
Result: a doctor with the talent of Holder.
We want quality...no matter what the color.
Diversity is for talentless dorks.
Which is why most of them are located in liberal arts faculties.
The only thing Liz Warren has in common with CUNY is the first 3 letters.
The people who object to this aren’t being realistic. When listing “White/(at most 1/32 Cherokee)” provides a career advantage, why not list “White/Jewish?” Is it because “White/Jewish” is a ticket to persecution—akin to a “kick me” sign in the current state of liberal discourse (Palestinians/Muslims good, Jews bad)?
Here, wear this little yellow star on your coat making it easier to celebrate your contributions to our university.
Divide and conquer.
Precisely what the Nazis did! After all, you can’t exclude them if you can’t identify them.
this is likely NOT to “increase diversity” but to single out Jews and PREVENT their elevation to professor, so as to build a strong anti-Israel bias.
In Israel singling out “white” Jews for favoritism would be cause for riots. In my town probably 10 per cent are black-skinned, their forebears came mostly from Ethiopia. About 15 per cent are brown-skinned, their forebears came from Yemen. About 50 per cent are various shades of tan, some as dark as the Ethiopians, their forebears having come from Iran through the whole Arab world. We have a sprinkling of Indian Jews, lots more in other places, they can be either light or dark. What’s left are those who originated in Europe. But then everyone can be married to everyone else. Are those people in New York nuts?
You have to label precisely; how else would the progressives know who to hate on?
That way, they can be designated an overrepresented group and put at the bottom of the hiring list, behind Asians.
