[Ed. – Here’s another example.]
A new Office for Diversity and Inclusion is about to open in the House of Representatives — the latest sign that identity politics continue their long march through the institutions. Last month, in yet another example, West Point cancelled classes for a day so cadets could discuss “diversity and inclusion” and be lectured on “toxic masculinity.”
And just to make it clear where this all leads, during a primary debate in New Hampshire last week, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) called for “race-conscious laws.”
These seemingly discrete events are part of a pattern. “Diversity” may be outwardly sold as the hope that America, always a diverse country, can afford equal opportunities to all its citizens. It is the opposite of this color-blind promise, however; it mandates numerical proportionalism at schools and places of employment and, yes, make no mistake, eventually laws that take account of a person’s race.
