The New Discrimination
I can clearly remember Alabama Governor George Wallace standing at the door to block two black people from enrolling at the University of Alabama. Thankfully, things have changed a lot since then.
The incoming freshman class at Harvard will have more minorities than whites. Harvard make a concerted effort to recruit them. Presumably their applications are in rough proportion to the population so a majority would come from whites. Either Harvard believes whites are inferior or they are actively discriminating against them. Presumably they would view the Obama daughters are disadvantage while poor whites have white privilege.
Nobody should be discriminated against based on skin tone. It doesn’t matter whether it is black, white, brown, yellow or red. When Harvard talks about diversity, apparently they are referring only to race, gender and sexual orientation. They certainly don’t encourage a diversity of opinion.
In his famous “I Have a Dream” speech, Martin Luther King expressed the hope that his children “will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character”. Neither racists like George Wallace nor PC liberals like those at Harvard seem to believe in that standard. What a pity!
