Our institutions are guided by primitive and simplistic racism

I used to spend time pointing out the problem with this sort of bean-counting racism (and sexism), but it hardly seems interesting anymore.  The findings aren’t meant to indicate anything real; they’re simply intended to promote a simple-minded ideology.  We can see this in the fact that the conclusions only ever point in one direction.  If there are more white people than their portion of the population, that’s bad.  On the other hand, if there are more women or minorities than the population would suggest, that’s good.

It’s heads we win, tails you lose.

DanMcGowan: URI's staff and faculty is 84.9 percent white, according to the university's affirmative action report.

In an intelligent, non-superstitious, egalitarian world bureaucrats would be embarrassed to publish such reports, and journalists would be embarrassed to promote them.  Unfortunately, we don’t live in that world, and I suppose as people like me tire of pointing out the obvious, younger generations will simply accept the propaganda as facts… until they realize they’ve been swindled.
