Our Op-Ed in NY Post: DEI has gone to the dogs

Our Op-Ed in NY Post: DEI has gone to the dogs

Our findings from our newest database: “DEI is rapidly taking over not just academia in general but even the training of Fido’s veterinarian.”

Our latest database has been unveiled at Our stellar research team there dug into the country’s top 10 veterinary medical schools (two schools tied for 10th).

As we explain in our op-ed in the New York Post, we started digging into vet schools half-seriously at first, cracking jokes about it, pretty sure there was no cause for concern and that our initial efforts would come up dry. Boy were we wrong.

You can easily access the vet school database by clicking here, and our entire database that catalogues over 500 institutions of higher education, elite private k-12 schools, military academies, and med schools by clicking here.

The gist of our vet school findings which we outlined in our article in the NY Post are as follows:

Lamentably, DEI has penetrated deeply into the training of veterinarians who will take care of your pets, based on claims that “the industry was exclusively for White people” and, as Cornell says, “building anti-racism in animal welfare” is needed.

White pet owners “not wanting a Black veterinarian treating their pet” is allegedly pervasive, per the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Legislation targeting pit bulls may reflect “biases towards persons of color,” a University of Pennsylvania graduate thesis says; indeed, “implicit racial bias in the United States adversely affects the welfare” of the breed.

Though “biases” come into play whenever a vet makes “a judgment toward treatment” — or so insists a paper titled “Preparing veterinary hospitals for greatness through DEI initiatives.”

Late in 2020, the American Veterinary Medical Association, with the American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges, created the Commission for a Diverse, Equitable and Inclusive Veterinary Profession to promote “the value of diversity, equity, and inclusion throughout the veterinary profession” and encourage and help “veterinary medical associations and animal health companies to measure and improve diversity, equity, and inclusion.”

Its recommendations include giving “guidance” to vet schools on “creating a brave space for DEI issues and discussions, implicit bias and microaggression training” — and, of course, “a permanent DEI position,” along with incorporating “DEI content in the professional program.”

Eight of the top 11 schools now have CRT/DEI curriculum or training; three have school-wide mandatory CRT training.

The staff and faculty training prognosis is much worse. Eight of the 11 schools have some sort of mandatory faculty and staff training. Six of the 11 integrate DEI into their search and hiring processes.

Last, but not least, a majority of the top 11 schools have bias-reporting tools that allow for the anonymous reporting of alleged DEI violations.

DEI is rapidly taking over not just academia in general but even the training of Fido’s veterinarian.

DEI in veterinary schools is a somewhat comical microcosm of the larger DEI problem. But the damage to society from the hyper-focus on race is no laughing matter.

Every single facet of our educational systems is overrun with this pernicious and divisive DEI grossness. And we’re here to shine light on the spread. Because as Professor Jacobson is fond of saying, sunlight is truly the best disinfectant.

DW and I have bred dogs for over 20 years. We allow dogs at our RV park, and we impose no breed restrictions. We have interacted with hundreds of dogs, both our own and not our own. Neither of us have ever been bitten by a dog… except for an RV guest’s pit bull, who closed a 100-yard gap at a dead run to DW (who was waiting to greet him) only to immediately bite her in the hand.

Neither the dog nor the owner was black.

Furthermore, the owner was an old dude and not the type to choose a pit bull because he wanted a “badass protection dog.” (I had a cousin who got one for exactly that reason, and it didn’t work out well for him.)

We still don’t restrict pitties, but we do require them to be leashed when they’re in the RV park proper and not out on the desert trails.

I read of a PETA guy who celebrated his dog being vegan. So do we need to find out from the … ah… (can I say) owner what pronouns the mutt answers to? This silliness is another sign of a decaying society caught up in superficiality while the vital infrastructure decays away. The only hope is that the dogs are smarter than the …(there I do again) owners?

These people are crazy or very useful idiots. We CANNOT humor them, induldge them or dignify their craziness or useful idiocy.

If feel bad for their dogs.

The scholarship vet schools require for admission is daunting. The average GPA for the entering veterinary class, after 4 years of college, at LSU, somewhere around the year 2013, was in the 3.7 range. That’s not Cornell standards. where they’re closer to 4.0.
Good luck if they’re going to be mining the Baltimore, MD school system where 40 per cent of the high school students have a GPA of one or less. Or Chicago. Or NYC.
There are schools that flunk out students in their 4th, hospital year if their scholarship doesnt measure up.

Even the offshore schools demand a high standard of intellectual rigor. One offshore school had a first semester entering class of 190 students. By the time the third semester rolled around, there were less than 100 enrolled. even considering the schools liberal scholarship where if you flunk a class you take that class over, alone and if you still flunk the class, you’re gone.
The offshore schools are in a tough spot, because if they start turning out lousy graduates, they’re out of business.

I’ll admit to not wanting a hungry Korean vet treating my dog.

Most vets are in the pocket of big pharma. Hence, the constant push to more and more vaxes.

We learned that the more vaxes, the sicker our pets got. We stopped all but rabies. We only kept a relationship with a vet so when the time came to put our pets down, we had that opportunity.

Add in the stupidity of the equity warriors and I fear even more for pet and livestock health.

Great job on Varney, Professor. Watched it on Fox Business in Israel.

The claim that pit bulls suffer from a bias against blacks is an admission that pit bulls are the guarding breed of choice for street drug dealers. They are also the breed of choice for the secretive dog fighting rings. The only real knowledge I have of dog fighting involved black dog owners. Pits are one of the few breeds I would seriously question owning. They may be sweet as can be until triggered, but once triggered they are very difficult to call off. For a University of Pennsylvania graduate thesis to ignore the obvious should have been grounds for refusal to accept the thesis. Might as well have argued for the number of angels dancing on the top of a pin.

    My sister used to work at a kennel. When she began she held no strong opinion about Pitties. When she left, she believed that the breed should be eliminated. And she’s a dog person.

Perhaps there’s a bias against pit bulls because they’re almost exclusively owned by ghetto trash as some kind of thug status symbol and are almost exclusively responsible for the horrific dog attacks that happen in dumpy neighborhoods. But I’m not as smart as a researcher at Penn Vet School, so what do I know.

I am a white dog owner and dog lover, and daily concealed carrier with the requisite permits. This will all make sense below.

1. Pit bulls are fine until they chew someone’s face off or otherwise attack.

2. Pit bulls are owned, generally speaking but not always, by low-life trash. Not many black people where I live, but plenty of pit bulls. They are the favorite dog of every tweaker, i.e. meth user. The idea that any of this is “racist” is bullshit.

3. I think it’s far more likely that I will have to use a gun to defend against a pit bull than a human being.

4. The other breeds that I steer clear of are mastiffs and Rottweilers. That said, pit bulls and pit-mixes are responsible for at least two-thirds of all fatal dog attacks.

5. Wild animals usually give some sort of warning, the exception being if someone happens to (always mistakenly) find themselves between a bear sow and her cubs. Dogs don’t warn before they attack, and they don’t hesitate like wild animals do, the exception being the aforementioned bear sows.

On the human side of things:

1. Most gun battles take place within 10 feet.

2. If you find yourself in a crowded place (mall, restaurant) where there’s a shooter, drop to one knee and shoot upward. Less chance of hitting a bystander that way.

3. Remember: You are responsible for what’s behind your target.

4. You are legally authorized to shoot only if you or someone near you is in imminent danger of grave injury or death. Carrying a gun does not make you a law enforcement agent.
