Western Washington University's head honcho, Bruce Shepard, isn't worried about the schools curriculum or the quality of its "educational" offerings in general; he's upset because the school's too damn white. In his mind that marks the institution as a failure, and he wants to do something about it.
“Every year, from this stage and at this time, you have heard me say that, if in decades ahead, we are as white as we are today, we will have failed as university,” Shepard said in the 2012 speech.
And in a recent blog post on WWU’s website, Shepard echoes these sentiments, saying those who do not agree “have not thought through the implications of what is ahead for us or, more perniciously, assume we can continue unchanged.”
“In the decades ahead, should we be as white as we are today, we will be relentlessly driven toward mediocrity; or, become a sad shadow of our current self,” he wrote.
The university has already replaced standard performance reviews with sensitivity training and hosts workshops to better serve undocumented students. WWU also provides literature on how to better “recruit and retain faculty and staff of color.”
Welp, when the university starts doing "sensitivity training" and catering to illegal aliens, they're not just circling the drain - they've hit the sewer. When retaining staff of color (translation: racism) is their defined goal, they're not an educational organization, but a vegetational organization.
Here's hoping they print their diplomas on toilet paper, so the "graduates" can put them to good use.
