We say we are diverse, but are we really?

It has long been argued by the administrations of universities across the country that by increasing racial diversity on campus, diversity of thought will also flourish.

But despite this particular university’s attempts to diversify the student body racially, diversity of thought remains elusive.

Diversity is worshipped at this university much like the wayward Israelites worshipped the calf of gold. It is the new catchword du jour, the white man’s redemption for two centuries of “institutionalized racism.”

Diversity is praised by the administration and taught as enlightened thought in the classrooms. Campus organizations celebrating diversity spring up like mushrooms in a cow pasture after a hard spring rain.
