When progressives yammer about diversity, equity and inclusion what they really mean is discrimination in favor of their cherished sub-groups, usually African-Americans, women and the alphabet crowd. They have no interest in equal treatment, equal opportunity or even equal outcomes. They want everything to be handed on a silver platter to their favorites. Knowledge, experience, skill, effort; all these mean nothing. All that counts are your immutable characteristics and your willingness to parrot whacked ideologies.
So here is a demand for some real equity–why are men being so discriminated against in college? There are slightly more males in the population than women at college age, so they should represent at least 50% of graduates. They don’t, and the problem is steadily worsening, and this blatant discrimination exists in graduate schools as well. If we want equity, then by the numbers something very inequitable is happening, yet there is not a word said about it by the high priests of progressive insanity.
Males have been demonized by progressives and this is the result, and then they wonder why there are so many violent young men and so many who fall prey to drug and alcohol addictions. I eagerly await the first progressive who has the courage to apply their equity blathering where it belongs.
