Mandatory diversity training for my wife yesterday. She told me about a breakout session where they were asked to describe a situation that made them feel like an outsider due to their race.
A white male stood up, recounting his youth in LA, attending a school that was nearly all black/Latino and a football game where he was picked last (after the team captains chose along racial lines), yet scored the winning goal and was celebrated by his team. The next day, he was back to being ignored and left out of everything by people who, not sharing his ethnicity, weren’t interested to know him.

That sort of turned the discussion on its head!

Good.
If you need emotional support to travel, maybe you should stay home.

Who wants a crappy tattoo? They look creepy, and make the people who have them look like lemmings and sheep.

Faculty quality is irrelevant. What matters is how many disabled Inuit lesbians are teaching.

Darwin has to re-generate white people with appropriate survival instincts. The luxury of more advanced civilization includes seeds of its own destruction by allowing the gardens of delusion to thrive as well.

"As Abigail Thompson, chair of the mathematics department at the University of California–Davis, described in a Wall Street Journal editorial: “To score well [on a diversity statement], candidates must subscribe to a particular political ideology, one based on treating people not as unique individuals but as representatives of their gender and ethnic identities. . . . This system specifically excludes those who believe in a tenet of classical liberalism: that each person should be treated as a unique individual, not as a representative of an identity group."

Diversity crap has been going on for over fifty years now. That's multiple generations of stage props and fake wannabe wishful thinking based on ludicrous theories. If the boat doesn't float by this time, it ain't going to, so just go back to quality and performance, period.

Now, it is just a tool of subversion, putting in lame brains and retards so organizations can no longer function and are perpetually bound up in conflict, ignorance and controversy.

I just wrote my five page essay on why diversity programs are unjust, insulting, and ineffective. I'm sure I'll get that job at UC now, because I am sure they invite full discussion of all issues.

This is not left that fights for worker's rights, this is pseudo-left that wants to get paid for pushing GLOBO!HOMO! narrative and be paid $MILLION for doing that
This was the work of people like Todd Gitlin and Tom Hayden and the New Left. They despised the Old Left and their support of the "workers of the world"--that great grey mass of interchangeable cogs in a big wheel. They are the ones who invented the identity politics that is everywhere today.

Climatology is a fledgling field that has hardly been developed. The problem with most science and other fields of academia is that they try to piggy back on the reputations of fields like Physics, where we can put together 20 textbooks on various fields within the subject, 1000 pages long, and it will never have to change...because we know the subject in and out. Climatology is not like that...and likely never will be.

The very few that are out there are suffering from massive groupthink and stepping beyond their bounds. This idea that warming creates substandard living conditions hardly has any basis in reality.

Here's some scientific facts:

1. More people die from extreme cold than extreme heat....a lot more...like 17 times
2. Food production and industrial production has been positively correlated with warming the past 100 years.
3. Population growth has been positively correlated with warming the past 100 years.
4. The planet is actually greening due to climate change....which was confirmed by a group that studied satellites at the Liberal UC Berkeley.
5. People don't flee warmer climates...they flock to them.

There are 4000 or 5000 institutions of higher learning in the states and if you pick 100 at random you will likely experience nothing but people scrambling to keep up with the demands of living in a country owned and operated by the fucking banks and no Title IX spear-gun snipers like UC Berkeley, as much as the crazy days right wants to prove every single college is owned and operated by stalinists stomping on the throats of white men and forcing them to wash the cars of IHLs and gangbangers.

You might as well equate the death metal band Krisiun with Paul Anka and categorize them together as 'popular music' and, of course, therefore the stuff of SATAN!

For the record I taught at two, a public community college and private university and mostly it was struggle at both, for the public university just to pay the staff and, at the private, for the kids to figure out how to package aid, debt and parent's contributions and jobs, summer gigs, in a way that would allow t...

You are right to a point, but as someone who teaches at university now, I can attest that PC bullshit sensitivity nonsense is increasing exponentially. It is not driven by students or some communist/left wing conspiracy, it is driven by administrations trying to hire more administrations to justify their worthless, tuition-sucking existence, with some input from State legislatures (and supposedly conservative right wing TX legislature is introducing crap that their liberal colleagues on East and West coast would be proud of).

Can there be a better use of student money than to create Office of LGBTQIAPPPP1233444+-*()? Or five offices of student success, whose purpose is to pressure profs to inflate grades and not tell the little snowflakes that they should study instead of being lazy? Or bloated diversity offices, which is the source of book burning and mandatory thought exercises? Or "mandatory reporting of sexual harassment" - don't report it, and get fired? All of this administrative bloat takes away faculty independence, and the end result is that if we get a faculty member expressing non-woke opinions, administrations will get rid of him, not to change everyone to Stalin- and Bernie-worshipping communists, but simply to avoid any controversy and bad publicity. You know, discussion of controversies and free exchange of ideas was the reason why Universities were created in first place...not any more. Now it is collection of tuitions, football teams, and paying as much as possible to worthless bureaucrats who don't know their ass from elbow.

YAY!

People have been getting licensed Social (Justice) Workers to write them permission slips for $50 so they can take their pet Viper on a Plane. Enough!

Yes, of course. All campus life in every college in America is exactly like being forced to join the Hitler Youth.

Exactly.

I attended a technical conference last month at a university in Pittsburgh and the organizers forced everyone to sing the Internationale while being raped by jihadists before we were given coffee at the session breaks.
