Hat tip Daily Bruin
We have previously reported about the drive to require incoming UCLA students to take a "diversity course", so they can be properly educated as to their "white privilege" and all that other nonsense UCLA is teaching the kids.
In the below Daily Bruin Op-Ed page, a group of faculty have written a letter urging that the diversity requirement (that they themselves have voted on and passed) be adopted. To make it even more ridiculous they attack the suggestion that a campus-wide faculty vote be taken on the measure as being undemocratic.
"Nevertheless, a small group of opponents has undermined this democratic process, taking unprecedented steps to impede the adoption of this curricular change by forcing a campus-wide faculty vote."
Sounds like the Democratic Peoples' Republic of California at Los Angeles
Naturally, I added my comment. I also inserted something in there about the two ladies who teach "Chicano/a Studies". I can't believe they are still calling it Chicano Studies. When I was growing up in the West LA area about a mile from the UCLA campus, Chicanos is what the kids in the gangs called themselves. They were the guys who wore khakis and Sir Guy shirts. (Full disclosure: I did too for a couple of years.) My wife, who is Mexican, would be insulted if someone called her a Chicana.
