University - 'Too many damn whites'
- Western Washington University's marketing department asks "How do we make sure that in future years 'we are not as white as we are today?'"
- President Shepard equates a "white" student body and faculty to "failure."
- I guess having a color blind application system is too much to ask.
A school-wide questionnaire at Western Washington University (WWU) asked the community “How do we make sure that in future years ‘we are not as white as we are today?’”
The question, released through the communications and marketing department’s daily newsletter Western Today, comes on the heels of admonishments given in multiple convocation addresses by WWU President Bruce Shepard for the university’s “failure” to be less white.
“Every year, from this stage and at this time, you have heard me say that, if in decades ahead, we are as white as we are today, we will have failed as university,” Shepard said in the speech reports Campus Reform.
And in a recent blog post on WWU’s website, Shepard echoes these sentiments, saying those who do not agree “have not thought through the implications of what is ahead for us or, more perniciously, assume we can continue unchanged.”
“In the decades ahead, should we be as white as we are today, we will be relentlessly driven toward mediocrity; or, become a sad shadow of our current self,” he wrote.
The university has already replaced standard performance reviews with sensitivity training and hosts workshops to better serve undocumented students. WWU also provides literature on how to better “recruit and retain faculty and staff of color.”
|The Insanity of Liberal Racism|
Actor Dwayne Johnson's father is of Black Nova Scotian origin, and his mother is of Samoan heritage. The insane racists of the Left are not sure what to do with Americans of mixed race who do not fit into their fantasy world of "pure blood" Hitlerian racial groupings.
The Leftists wring their hands, do you put The Rock in the segregated so-called "Black" student and job grouping? Do you put him in a segregated "Asian" group? Or because The Rock is a mainstream American, do you put him in with those evil racist "Whites"?
Being color blind and judging people individually on their own merits never enters their minds.
