White is not right: Campus admins ask for help weeding out white people
The Daily Caller ^ | April 15, 2014 | Robby Soave

Posted on 04/15/2014 1:54:41 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.”

The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform.

“I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, that we as a faculty and staff and student body, as an administration, if we 10 years from now are as white as we are today, we will have failed as a university,” said Bruce Shepard, president of WWU, in a 2012 address...

Hey, you’re the ones accepting them. Everyone should just put down they’re African-American. Let them prove otherwise.

To what extent does it reflect Western Washington?

Is the president white? Then, he needs to set the example, and resign. But his last act before resigning will be to recruit a minority to be his replacement. Put your money where your mouth is.

This is easy. All the white students should leave, en mass. Now they can have all the diversity they want.

If I was a white student going to school at this place, I would be gone, pronto.

Should be simple really, there are percentage statistics of the racial makeup of America. Give those numbers to the admissions office, why bother the students with it?

Washington state tazpayers are paying this monster to make such statements.

He should be fired.

He should never be allowed to teach anywhere in the USA again.

ANY parent paying for their kid to be at this facility should pull them out.....never to return.

Empty the school of those who belong there & let the fools fill it with the same caliber of persons who are being supported & are procreating with welfare money.

See how successful that is.

Within no time at all, employers will refuse to accept such students as employees.

IF those of other color are talented, they will find a way to get in a vast array of schools.

This is worse than equal opportunity employment demands.

“racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large,”

They mean, they have more than 72% white?

More of that ever-present self-consciousness so endemic to liberals and all the people they’ve poisoned even a little.

Lets see here. They want more crime on campus, lower admission standards, fewer gruaduates, less competent teachers, lower enrollments, huge financial problems, and did I mention more crime?

Yep. If they want fewer white people, they can easily get their wish.

Tell you what deary, I’ve found it’s my attitude and aptitude that got me where I am today. I find that a lot of folks are where they are today because of the same things. However, I have also found that a lot of folks got to where they are today by having enough attitude to make up for a lack of aptitude. Some folks, also, have gotten where they are with the wrong attitude, and no aptitude, simply because someone with a quota to meet looked no further than “Race” on the application.

This is Bruce Shepard. Obviously he is a racist who is contributing to the "white" problem at WWU and he needs to step aside immediately so that somebody of a different color can take his place.

Maybe they can offer advance classes in The Detroitification of Western Washington University.

If they can figure out how to transform the model Detroit and other formerly white cities used to to a college setting; then yeah.

They’ll acheive their goals in no time.

“If you see racism, speak up. Break the silence.” (on the little blonde cutie’s hair)

Bruce Shepard, I see racism in your call to reduce the number of whites rather than a plea to the black community at large to value education enough to put in the effort to earn more places in your school.

You’ve failed already, focusing only on skin color.

At least you didn’t fail as badly as Africa. Whole countries with very few whites and Asians. What’s wrong with them?

White students should demand a refund of their tuition, and sue the university for creating a hostile living and learning environment. If the university has deteriorated to the point where racist professors and administrators are openly militant towards particular races, federal and state funding should be withdrawn, and the aggrieved students should be accommodated and compensated by placements in better universities.
