Click through to the student newspaper editorial and pay close attention to the comments.

"Diversity" is like Orwell's  Animal Farm: some are more equal than others.
 
2013-05-18 08:44:48 AM  
So the guy used the 'ol "But I know someone who is .a .........." as a qualification to be nominated for the position.
 
2013-05-18 10:41:22 AM  
Eh, I'm okay with that. I actually do tend to agree that having a white, heterosexual male in charge of diversity sends the wrong message.

The victims of racism are the real racists, always.

Also, I like how a national news agency is reporting on (a misrepresentation of) a student decision like it actually matters. Gotta keep the paranoids listening to right-wing radio.

Wait, these nominations were blocked by the student senate? By a vote?

How can FOXNews possibly have a problem with nominations being blocked by the Senate? Oh, wait, he was voted down. That's not a filibuster. Can't have that.

From the article:

The outgoing vice president for diversity and inclusion had endorsed Piotrkowsi as the best candidate for the job - noting that he identifies with a religious minority and has a sister who is gay.

The white heterosexual guy who wanted to be on the diversity committee was a racist? Do you have something against white heterosexual males?

He was voted down. The real racism is assuming that just because he was white and qualified, he would automatically get the job.

And people never vote based on prejudices? It seems the person whom he was to replace thought he was the most qualified of all the candidates, not merely qualified. Do you disagree with that opinion, which seemed I be shared by the author of the editorial of the school newspaper and many commenters? You seem to have some specific insight, so would you care to share it?

In my opinion, you're reading into the opinion you want to read into, because it's the one that makes you feel the most victimized.

"According to the author of this editorial" is never valid evidence for anything but that the author had that opinion.
 
2013-05-18 12:00:52 PM  
And, by the way, we don't elect presidents based on who the previous president thinks would be best for the job in a democracy. That's more of a "private sector", "dynasty" thing.

Oh, so I should trust your biases and speculation over the account of someone with firsthand knowledge of the events. Nice chip on your shoulder you've got there.

Also, don't confuse my mocking this PC nonsense ans feeling victimized. I don't need to perpetually feel like I'm a victim, unlike some people in this thread.  Just remember most bigots are too convinced they have righteousness on their side to see how stupid their prejudices are.

Editorials are opinion pieces that don't have to be based in fact or even journalism to be published. If you're endorsing the opinion that all editorials claiming to be familiar with a situation are to be immediately trusted, you'll fit right in at TFA's comment section.

A passing familiarity with the prime directive of FOXNews's editorial section. Make old conservatives, white supremacist, casual racists, and other assorted bigots as angry as possible at all times. It's working! Just check out the comments.

It's impossible to be racist against white people. Fark taught me that a long time ago.

The best thing to ever happen to the civil rights movement was when that sheriff turned the fire hoses on those poor little black kids trying to go to school - in front of the cameras.  It wasn't until that scene that America realized just how ugly racism can be.

Soon, white heterosexual males will have a similar moment.

"This university is not ready, in any capacity, for a heterosexual white male to be in charge in any way of diversity and inclusion," said Ian Coley, a member of the diversity committee. "I don't know if any university is."

Until then, we must pay for the crime of being white heterosexual men.

kingoomieiii: The real racism is assuming that just because he was white and qualified, he would automatically get the job.


Yes, you've made it clear that you think being qualified for a job does not mean you should be considered for it. The guy didn't say he's qualified because he's white. His critics ARE saying he's unqualified because he's white.

kingoomieiii: In my opinion, you're reading into the opinion you want to read into, because it's the one that makes you feel the most victimized.


He's reading the opinion of people who STATED their opinion of why the guy shouldn't have the job.

If we can't take the reasons given to us for why they oppose the guy on their own merits, what should we do? Should we do like you and ignore what they have said and instead argue off of what we want their argument to be?

Some people have to learn the real meaning of diversity the hard way. Hopefully, this student will refocus his life on something besides trying to implement reverse racism.

It's possible to be racist against white people, it's just that you're not going to get any sympathy when you start whining about it because being a white male is so Farking awesome.

I love being a white guy, it's the best. Oh noes I might not be able to be "vice president in charge of diversity" or whatever. I guess I'll just have to settle for being "president of the United States" instead. Or you know... Absolutely anything else my mind can imagine for the most part.

Being represented poorly is at least still being represented. Count the ethnicities represented on commercials during one afternoon of television. Write that tiny number down. Then get over yourself.

Wait until it fractures. At one point being WASP/non-WASP was the breakdown. They took out Anglo-Saxon Protestant and threw in all the white non-anglosaxon non-protestants. Those Catholic Italians and Irish, welcome to the club of the great oppressor. Slavic Orthodox? Jews? Congrats... you're now the "enemy" who are responsible for all the worlds ills.The only way to repent is if you're gay or maybe possibly muslim. You can argue online and post all the flyers you want and be more of a Tim Wise than Tim Wise but you're only one conflict away from being as racist as David Duke.

You may not disagree but you will be wrong. There will not be a moment as built up to over one hundred plus years that targets white, straight males. There will undoubtedly be minor moments where white straight males cry that they are being persecuted, however no one will give a shiat.

Isn't that discrimination based on race, sex and sexual orientation?

Pretty sure there are laws that cover this.
