For all the open mindedness, and diversity that Universities like to push today, campuses of higher learning are some of the least diverse places you can find. This is explained in Prager U's latest video, as they bring on Turning Point USA's founder Charlie Kirk to discuss this topic.
Turning Point is non-profit that spreads the message of freedom and liberty throughout college campuses across the United States, with more and more chapters opening up everyday. Kirk has firsthand experience with the intolerance of the left on University grounds, and gives us a rundown of just how not diverse these diversity obsessed places are.
People expressing different points of view on an issue. At most colleges today, that’s a dangerous, revolutionary idea – if that different point of view is not on the left. The moment you enter college, you enter an indoctrination center. Remember orientation week? It starts there and never stops. They tell you to be open-minded, but they don’t really mean it. Almost all your professors are on the left – nearly 12 to 1, left to right, according to a recent study by Econ Journal Watch. There are many departments at many colleges that don’t have a single conservative voice. The administration invariably supports leftist positions. And, all those diversity administrators – they depend for their livelihood (that means their paycheck) on creating victims.
Kirk goes on to talk about how much of what the social constructionists - known more popularly as social justice warriors - are obsessed with, such as race, gender, or sexuality, are really all superficial. These superficial focuses stop you from learning from great thinkers and artists due strictly because of the fact that they were white, or male, or straight. Men like Shakespeare would go completely unlearned about.
"And it’s destructive of a peaceful campus environment because it pits racial, ethnic, and gender groups against one another,"
says Kirk. "In other words, diversity, as practiced on your typical college campus, divides – not unites – people."
Kirk offers that if the left believes the right's ideas have so little merit, then why not allow the ideas to enter into the campus and die by their own merits? Typically, Universities do not allow right wing speakers or ideas to have a platform, and will violently protest in order to keep them out.
All of this, and more, adds up to the fact that University campuses are the least diverse places in America.
