The Trouble With Diversity

The Trouble With Diversity

“Liberals say it’s important to use race as a criterion in college admissions and conservatives say that’s reverse discrimination. The real crisis in our educational system is that our universities — even the public ones — have essentially become finishing schools for rich kids, it’s hard to see why we should get upset about what color skins the rich kids have.” 

— Dr. Walter Benn Michaels, Professor of English, University
of Illinois at Chicago and author of The Trouble With Diversity: How We Learned to Love Identity and Ignore Inequality
