Skip to comments.White professors still dominate Bay Area colleges as student bodies grow more diverse
Posted on 01/12/2014 8:16:47 AM PST by artichokegrower
The high-profile bullying case of a black student has thrust San Jose State under an intense spotlight to improve the college experience for its minority students and diversify its predominately white faculty.
But an analysis of demographic figures by this newspaper shows that a lack of racial diversity in academia runs wide and deep: The South Bay campus' faculty is more diverse than other major Bay Area universities and the state's two university systems.
At San Jose State, 59 percent of the faculty are listed as white, although 10 percent of the professors didn't specify a race. The faculty at UC Berkeley, a campus that prides itself on its progressive identity, is 77 percent white. At Stanford, it's 74 percent. Across the state, 76 percent of the University of California's faculty and 68 percent of Cal State's are white.

And this surprises who?
Academics is “the white man’s disease”
but the hate-whitey message sounds more legit when coming from a white professor!
In my engineering school they were 80% oriental, Indian or Pakistani. I guess he must be talking about liberal arts.
It would warm my heart to see hundreds of pasty white liberal professors thrown out of work.
The use of the term “Professor” denigrates all in academia who are real professors and not just Marxist dupes left over from the 60’s and 70’s hate America crowd.
If White professors dominate then it “looks like America”, since Whites are still 63% of the U.S. population.
Another article promoting racism and discrimination by the very “ left- wing” mass media. Arrrrgh!
I’m sure they will totally support being fired and replaced. They need to taste the sweetness that is diversity.
That's because black and brown replacements don't come with the same self hating sense of white guilt that is so useful in turning out class after class of self loathing, air-headed, politically correct one worlders.
Diversity is for little people.
Not in the Bay Area.
” the hate-whitey message sounds more legit when coming from a white professor!”
That’s the message of the animated Dark Knight movie. Libtards are hypocrites. They claim whitey is evil’ yet they themselves live in isolate white-only enclaves.
But knowledge is knowledge. How do you apportion knowledge to reflect diversity?
If 2+2 = 4, what difference does it make who tells you that? Now, of course in University, the knowledge is a little more complicated, so you want more intelligent people explaining that to you. So, you look for intelligence, not diversity. And, to be blunt, most minorities can’t cut it on the intelligence level.
It’s funny that the people who are always demanding diversity seem to ignore it when it come to sports.
Even being a white-guilt, Lilly-livered, limousine liberal isn’t good enough anymore.....
I have read posts concerning diversity, ethnicity, color, gender, age and country of who are professors.
Why has there been not a SINGLE post, discussing the QUALITY of the rosters of University/college professors?
When I’m on the operating table, my concern is for the QUALITY of the surgeon, not giving a damn about his/her color, sex or favorite football team.
If in seat 16B in a jet with one engine out, I hope for the very best pilot, not caring as above.
Why is there NOT a discussion of QUALITY here?
The author of this piece, Katy Murphy, doesn't look all that 'diverse' herself, either.
Shouldn't Katy relinquish her job so that someone with a bit more 'color' and a bit less 'experience' can get some social justice? It's only fair, after all...
So what? They are human beings teaching other human beings. Period.
***The author of this piece, Katy Murphy, doesn’t look all that ‘diverse’ herself, either.***
-Feminist journalists are exempt
i never though about the race or sex of my professors or teachers. all i cared about was their knowledge, ability to teach, and respect for all ideas. oh and in the country legally.
Then they rail against “white privilege” in their classrooms. (LOL - I have to share - when I first typed this on my iphone, it came out “assrooms”! Freudian slip.)
Quality by who's measure? Leftist academia?
But I'd bet that with a little bit of effort we could find a "two-fer" who would outrank her in the hierarchy of victimhood.
After all, who could possibly object to such a 'diversity hire'? Certainly not a social-justice-loving 'hero of the revolution' and 'champion of diversity' such as Katy Murphy...
Diversity is the excuse liberals use to justify replacing competent white males with incompetent women and minorities. Affirmative action is the excuse used for enrolling unqualified minorities instead of qualified whites.
This article is typical leftist propaganda in order to force whites from the classroom. Don’t be fooled.
As long as liberal whites are the beneficiaries of the “poverty/race industry”, they’ll support it. When whites start losing these positions because of it, they’ll change their tune. Already happening with cops/firemen; whites can’t be hired for many of these jobs anymore.
