Perversity in diversity

November 4, 2007

The Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, www.thefire.org, reports that the University of Delaware now requires all its students to undergo Life Diversity Facilitation.

The training includes this definition of racism:

“A racist is one who is both privileged and socialized on the basis of race by a white supremacist (racist) system. The term applies to all white people (i.e., people of European descent) living in the United States, regardless of class, gender, religion, culture or sexuality.”

Students who resist the sessions may be reported.

Anyone with a diploma from the University of Delaware might want to take it off the wall now and put it in some drawer where no one will see it.
