Plans for 'Diversity Week' underway

9 hours ago • Aarushi Agni

The Associated Students of Madison Diversity Committee met Monday to discuss the group’s plan to create a week themed around diversity.The first annual “Diversity Week” is tentatively scheduled for the week of April 15, 2013.

ASM Diversity Committee Chair Mia Akers said the event would aim to engage students who are not specifically interested in diversity issues to think about the issue on a broader level.

Victoria Atkinson, the ASM intern on the project, said the week would designate each of the five weekdays to promoting understanding of adifferent type of diversity.

Atkinson said funding for the event has not yet been decided but would be acquired via ASM monies or grants.

Tentatively, the week will feature a sexuality day, multicultural day, religious diversity day, women’s day and a disability day.

The group also debated how to address “intersectionality” between the different types of diversity.

Akers said she hopes the event would probe students’ minds and make them think about how their own identities are “compiled.”

Diversity of political thought will NOT be tolerated. No conservatives need apply.

When I think of diversity, I think of different kinds of women- blonde, brunette, redhead, etc...different kinds of beer- lager, pilsner, stout, ale, etc...different kinds of modes of automotive transportation- luxury sedans, sports cars, SUV’s, trucks, classic convertibles, etc...different kinds of foods- beef, pork, chicken, seafood, salads, snacks, etc...different kinds of music- Jazz, Classical, Rock n Roll, Blues, etc...

000% Interest in the common good

100% Interest in our myriad differences

Common good:

National security
Individual rights
Parental rights
Equal rights
Robust economy
Freedom to choose where your kids go to school


The 1% rules, screw everyone else...

A planned celebration of idiocy! This is fit material for satire; but it reflects the death of civilization.

Putting "Diversity" In Context.

If you consider the historic definitions of a nation, community or family, you will see that all are being systematically undermined by the Left. To understand the cumulative effect: Losing America's Multi-Generational Purpose.

They should just call it what it is... Gays and Muslims day. Those two groups have ‘special’ status. This ‘multicultural’ garbage is sickening. We have one legitimate culture in America. It’s called AMERICAN, and its about faith and family. Unlike Europe, our culture is not built on one, distinct ethnic group, but it is still a culture, and it is far superior to this Homonazi/Islam garbage. I’m especially sick of Somalis bringing their own brand of Islamic supremacy to America. Keep that crap in Somalia!

So now we have National Hispanic American MONTH, Black History MONTH, and now Diversity WEEK. Why can’t each of these groups just pick a DAY each year?
