Former DEI head exposes the truth about 'inclusion' on college campuses

Former DEI head exposes the truth about 'inclusion' on college campuses

If you’re honestly seeking knowledge and truth, your perspective is bound to change from time to time.

Dr. Tabia Lee has had to learn this the hard way.

As the former head of the diversity, equity, and inclusion department at Silicon Valley’s De Anza College, Lee once truly believed that DEI was about inclusion.

However, she quickly realized that wasn’t what DEI was about at all. “It was like I was in the Twilight Zone,” she tells Glenn Beck.

It only took two weeks on the job before Lee was called a “dirty Zionist” who was “supporting white supremacy.” The “white supremacy” comment came after Lee attempted to help her co-workers organize their meetings on a video conference.

“What you’re doing right now is you’re white speaking, you’re 'white-splaining,' and you’re supporting white supremacy. We don’t do that here,” Lee recalls her co-worker saying to her.

When Lee told her co-workers where she came from and what she associated those words with — real white nationalists and KKK members — they didn’t care.

“Everyone on the call had these looks of condemnation, as though I was offending the person who said those offensive words to me,” Lee tells Glenn.

When she took the issue to her dean, there was no response.

The dean did nothing, and Lee was forced to see her co-workers continue to describe white supremacy as “being on time, being objective, setting an agenda,” which she sanely recognizes as personality characteristics and actions.

“From there at every turn it was becoming clear that I was working from a different understanding of social justice,” she says.

While her co-workers claimed to be inclusive, Lee was soon hearing complaints of rampant anti-Semitism on the campus.

Not only does the academic calendar start on high holy Jewish holidays, but the student government “basically subverted an effort of the Jewish Student Union to bring forth a definition of anti-Semitism.”

The student government instead made a counter-proposal, which included making “no definition of anti-Semitism” and condemning Israel.

“People were sharing these stories with me and telling me the environment of fear and exclusion that had been created for Jewish students,” she says.
