Detroit University drops Mathematics for "Diversity Training"
21th of June 2016
Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan has 27,578 students of which 15,004 (55%) are white and 4,881 (18%) are black.
Asians, Hawaiians, Hispanics and American Indians make up the rest.
The University has a general fund budget of $602 million and 32% of that ($190 million) is paid by the Detroit Tax payers.
The Whites and the Asians (7%) are doing quite fine, but because the minority students are struggling with mathematics the university has decided that you don’t actually need mathematics. At least not so much of it, so it decided to drop mathematics for that wonderful feel good subject that is far more important namely “Diversity Training”.
Wayne State University in Detroit drops mathematics as general education requirement: Replaces it with Diversity Training
See...there is a reason why people at university should study mathematics. When you are a professional out there in the real world you will need mathematics in EVERYTHING. You need to be able to interpret quantitative representations of information such as graphs, tables and statistics. Without mathematics you won’t be able to understand or carry out 90% of your job. At least not as efficiently as someone who had mathematics.
But you see that is not important. What is important for you as an Affirmative Action employed black manager is to understand that you just need to be nice to Whites and Asians who indeed have studied mathematics so that THEY can do your job.
Problem is that when we all just study the easy subject of “Diversity” and nobody bothers to do the difficult mathematics anymore, then who is going to do the job at the end of the day? Like the Afrikaans poet C.J. Langenhoven used to say, “Ek meneer en jy meneer, wie gaan dan die wa smeer?”
No, getting the job done is not important at all. Holding hands and singing Kumbaya together is far more important. Just look at the state of Detroit. Stupified graduates everywhere wandering through the ruins of a once beautiful city. Volksverdummung on an epic scale. And this for a University whose Football team is known as “The Warriors”? Sounds more like a bunch of liberal pussies to me.
