Posted on 06/13/2018 6:43:07 AM PDT by rktman
In conversations with most college officials, many CEOs, many politicians and race hustlers, it's not long before the magical words "diversity" and "inclusiveness" drop from their lips.
Universities and other institutions have started watering down standards and requirements in order to attract more minorities and women. Some of the arguments for doing so border on insanity. A math education professor at the University of Illinois wrote that "mathematics itself operates as Whiteness." She says that the ability to solve algebra and geometry problems perpetuates "unearned privilege" among whites. A professor at Purdue University's School of Engineering Education published an article in a peer-reviewed journal positing that academic rigor is a "dirty deed" that upholds "white male heterosexual privilege," adding that "scientific knowledge itself is gendered, raced, and colonizing.

Link to Ms. McDonald’s piece. Lengthy but a good read. Then again a lot of us already know the results.:
Started? To me that infers recently? How long ago world you consider the word 'started' to encompass?
LOL! If you want to sound old, just say it started before the turn of the century.
Diversity is just code for getting rid of whites .
The real racism in this Post Barry the Muslim era.
So the privilege comes from being smarter. They finally admit, that White males are smarter than others in algebra and geometry, and scientific knowledge itself.
They are destroying science. They are turning genuine achievement on its head, and making it a negative thing.
...Diversity is an anti-religion, and anti-ideology, a nepotism which promotes everything except one's own family.
Diversity therefore equals the destruction of any and all religions and of all positive ideologies.
Because Diversity can only be destructive: whatever IS is insufficiently or inexactly diverse.
Whatever IS must therefore be destroyed in order to make it MORE Diverse.
And there is no conceivable or measurable end to it. Yesterday's Diversity is today's intolerable lack of Diversity.
Diversity is the destruction of Good; and it is the destruction of all types of Good - however defined. All are chewed up and spat out by Diversity.
Diversity is the promotion of chaos by the destruction of Good; and then there-naming of chaos as Good.
Even the leading science journal “Nature” just had an article about the benefits of diversity (i.e., more papers published with higher numbers of citations). They featured a team that included New Zealand Maoris using their “indigenous research methods”!!!!
Wow! Maybe we need to include Hadza and San tribals in “diverse” research teams, for even “better” results!!!!
“So the privilege comes from being smarter.:
Which is now under the pejorative: “unearned priviledge”. If we don’t laugh them out of town, they will just keep coming up with this nonsense.
Even if you ignore the issue of IQ, if a subculture puts less value on education, discipline and hard work than another, members of that subculture wont do as well academically. Its just common sense. There is no reason to assume the difference is due to predjudice, bias, or immaginary “privilege”. In fact it is outrageous to blame one group for the low performance of another when that performance is explainable by their behavior and values.
Diversity is when you have people who look different but all think alike, and support liberal thought.
Ayn Rand spoke of this half a century ago. It’s been going on for a long, long time. I remember Florence King, too, describing an experience from the early 60’s when she was trying to edit (correct the spelling and grammar) of writings for a feminist magazine, and the editor chastised her, saying “good writing is counter-revolutionary.”
These idiots believe that receiving a college degree makes you smart; literally the day you graduate they change from stupid to smart. It is being able to say I have a degree from college X.
That is why it does not bother them to water down the requirements, because they will be equally smart once they receive the same degree.
This is the story of America giving up its previously unassailable lead in technological and medical innovation which will ineluctably lead to the decline of America as the pre-eminent world power in commerce and industry. The trade system that has drawn so much of American industry offshore can be reversed. When the American universities become second or third rate and they are firmly planted at the head of that path then the American edge will be gone. That can also be reversed but it will take a decade to do it and it will be a race between that improvement and third world status.
