Pushing 'diversity' is so yesterday on college campuses

"They will be assigning characteristics, attributes, and stereotypes without any understanding,” Donna Jackson, of Project 21, says of the lecturing.

Campus Reform, the education watchdog, reports numerous campuses are implementing anti-racism courses, modules, and training that can be traced to racial unrest in the U.S. after the death of George Floyd and others at the hands of law enforcement.

Pledges to promote “diversity and “inclusion” were once commonplace on college campuses, and have been for quite some time, but in recent years concepts such as “white privilege” have taken “diversity” to a new level by accusing white students – and their parents, and their grandparents, and their forefathers -- of harming minorities.

And that effort was occurring before protests and riots broke out in recent months that toppled statues and led to slashed law enforcement budgets.

Among eight schools named in the Campus Reform article, the University of Colorado-Boulder drew attention after its chancellor announced an “anti-racism module” for first-year students. During the program, students will explore the “the toxicity of racism in U.S. history, U.S. life and at CU Boulder.”

According to Jackson, the newest lessons on race and equality will come from far-left activists whose hatred of conservative views and religion will influence their presentations.

"And so any ideal that's opposed to theirs,” she warns, “will be labeled as racist."
