“no university could possibly maintain an all-White senior leadership for 128 years without implicitly and deliberately colluding and conspiring to exclude African-Americans”
The moral superiority on display here is really something to behold. It’s especially ironic coming from people who are threatening to make lists.

URI students want professor ‘White-List,’ threaten to sue if next president isn’t Black
In their “Declaration of Diversity,” students at the University of Rhode Island announced they would create a professor “white-list.”
The school’s Diversity Think Tank created its Declaration of Diversity in the same phrasing and style as the United States Declaration of Independence. In late November, it published the document in a publication called Uprise RI.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that no university could possibly maintain an all-White senior leadership for 128 years without implicitly and deliberately colluding and conspiring to exclude African-Americans, Latinos and Native Americans from senior leadership positions,” said the declaration.
The “complaints and demands” section announces that the students will “create a White-List of all those white professors who define and list themselves as diversity initiative conveners, race experts and researchers” who also fail to support hiring a diverse senior leadership team.
“You white professors do not need research to find out about systemic racism at URI,” say the students, because they are “part and parcel of the creation and maintenance of systemic racism at URI through your self-serving policies, unapologetic excuses, discriminatory behavior and your hegemonic culture of impunity.”
In addition to the “White-List,” the Diversity Think Tank called for mandatory classes on racism, diversity, and pluralism for first-year students. It also stated that the school’s students will launch a class-action lawsuit against the university if its next president is not an “African-American with an ancestry to slavery.”
