The Very Definition Of Modern Major Liberal...
Recently Virginia Commonwealth University rejected a candidate for an "Urban Journalism Workshop." The workshop had been instituted to "encourage minority students to pursue journalism careers"
The rejected student was white.
Now, this is all blah-blah-blah I had the bisque. Of course racial discrimination whether for good or ill will create these sorts of situations. This comment found under an article at the Volokh Conspiracy is what I wanted to focus in on...
"The program is intended to encourage minority students to pursue journalism careers."In a literal sense it makes no sense. It is the madness of liberalism taken to the nth extreme.
"Pamela D. Lepley, a VCU spokeswoman, said the program would not change as a result of the out-of-court agreement."
"The settlement requires VCU and other programs sponsored by Dow Jones to select students "without regard to race." The programs also agree to publicly acknowledge they will offer no preferential treatment or discriminate against any prospect "on the basis of race or ethnicity.""
How could a program "intended to encourage minority students to pursue journalism careers" ever "select students "without regard to race."" or "offer no preferential treatment or discriminate against any prospect "on the basis of race or ethnicity"" and still achieve the intended result?
The very definition of a modern major liberal!
