URI Students Plan to Create a ‘White List’ of Profs Who Fail to Push Diversity Hiring

URI Students Plan to Create a ‘White List’ of Profs Who Fail to Push Diversity Hiring

“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.

Campus Reform reports:

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.”

Implicitly AND deliberately?! Wow the URI activists learned TWO adverbs in their classes.

But there’s like only 20 black people in all of Rhode Island, and they all know how to code.

My school just hired a new president. One of our emeritus faculty (a real dope) submitted a public comment demanding that the Board of Trustees hire a woman. ‘Cause there’s no law against a job ad for a public institution that says, “Only women need apply.”

The hell you say! Where did these fools come from? Were they truly so ignorant by the time they arrived at a college? Did the college recruit them? Is this what happens as a result of a public school “education”?

I suppose that some external malice could be brought in to train them into compensated stupidity.

Turn off the heat in the dorms. HVAC can be offered on a variety of plans. Offer them canned food, can openers and coin operated microwave ovens.

Need a bath or shower? Bring your own soap and offer coin operated water source, a dollar a minute for hot and cold water, forty cents for cold water only with a fifteen cent per gallon credit for access to flushing toilets.

Sure, you can make executive and managerial choices, once you have learned how to take care of yourself and to function in your role.

Let the studeants demand. Let the university expel.

By the time the minorities get through messing around with the Institution, a Degree from URI won’t be worth the paper it’s printed on and they won’t get jobs anyway because employers won’t recognize it! What then? They will be chanting Trump Bad, Russia, Russia, Russia! Fools!

Sounds like something the high school glee club would come up with. “If we call it a white list instead of a black list, we’ll be taken more seriously!”
