I mean, come on now, if you got quotas to fill what's the point of doing any work when you'll get the spoils anyway?

An Amazing Diversity Plan at Madison
John Leo July 17, 2014

A remarkable article on the University of Wisconsin (Madison) appeared yesterday on the John William Pope Center site. In it, UW economics professor W. Lee Hansen writes about a comprehensive diversity plan prepared for the already diversity-obsessed campus. The report, thousands of words long, is mostly eye-glazing diversity babble, filled with terms like “compositional diversity,” “critical mass,” “equity mindedness,” “deficit-mindedness,” “foundational differences,” “representational equity” and “excellence,” a previously normal noun that suffers the loss of all meaning when printed within three words of any diversity term.

But Professor Hansen noticed one very important line in the report that the faculty senate must have missed when it approved this text: a call for “proportional participation of historically underrepresented racial-ethnic groups at all levels of an institution, including high-status special programs, high-demand majors, and in the distribution of grades.” So “representational equity” means quotas at all levels. And let’s put that last one in caps: GRADES WILL BE GIVEN OUT BY RACE AND ETHNICITY.

Professor Hansen writes: “Professors, instead of just awarding the grade that each student earns, would apparently have to adjust them so that academically weaker, ‘underrepresented racial/ethnic’ students perform at the same level and receive the same grades as academically stronger students.

“At the very least, this means even greater expenditures on special tutoring for weaker targeted minority students. It is also likely to trigger a new outbreak of grade inflation, as professors find out that they can avoid trouble over ‘inequitable’ grade distributions by giving every student a high grade.”

So diversity, quotas and social transformation of the campus are more important than learning anything. The faculty senate, professors, administrators and students who signed off on this are either OK with the plan, or haven’t been paying attention.

So basically their idea is to make niggers with American diplomas unemployable in private practice? Racists.

THe ultimate problem with Affirmative Action programs of any sort. Are the supposed beneficiaries actually showing their talents or are they just getting a pass based on their quota status. IF I were I a minority I would be insulted by this type of program.

That follows logically, but in practice I have yet to see any AA beneficent who deplores the whole notion.

Default Let's all be Melungians

Maybe we should all get DNA tested and/or claim some obscure ethnicity even if we're lily white; and alter our appearances to look "ethnic". Instead of "passing for white" we could "pass for (insert obscure ethnicity)".

Melungian comes to mind. They'll let anyone "be" Melungian. Like Honey Badger, the Melungians don't care.

This road to personal satisfaction is open to all Americans - race as officially recorded is self-reported, after all. As Fauxahontas will be happy to tell you. (Not that I recommend Injun; their casino pay-offs make them kinda combative about this stuff. Go black, hispanic or pacific islander in a pinch!)
