“Diversity at the Naval Academy, as at most academic institutions, is not about equal opportunity but a race and sex spoils system to achieve what the Navy brass see as a pleasing race and sex mix. They accomplish that vision by the removal of “artificial achievement barriers.”
This statement sounds like a direct lift from an Ayn Rand novel. (The part about removal of “Artificial” achievement barriers.)
The root word of “diversity” is “divide”. That is exactly what “diversity policy” does.
