“Students Against Social Injustice” (SASI) of Mississippi University are insisting that anyone who wants to graduate with a Liberal Arts Degree be forced to undergo at least two courses of brainwashing. The first would be 9-12 hours of “Diversity Outreach” and the second is 6-9 hours of multicultural courses. This blatant indoctrination serves no useful purpose and is based on pseudo-science and political ideology. Many are suggesting it is similar to the infamous “re-education camps”.
As reported in the Daily Caller:
The SASI group is claiming that their plan was inspired by the university’s diversity plan that was authored by the school’s chancellor, Jeffrey Vitter, who wrote: “Diversity is a hallmark of education and enriches the environment and experiences of all our campus constituents.”
As reported in “The DM Online,” SASI’s suggests that its mandatory additional courses would serve to complete the diversity plan’s goal to flavor “the overall curriculum by infusion of content that enhances multicultural awareness and understanding.”
The petition is also said to be attracting support from alumni in Pontotoc and Memphis, Tennessee.
Not only is it indoctrination, it is also poorly thought out: Would non-white students be exempt? Would non-white students have to do “diversity outreach “ with white folk?
