Academia's new clothes

Maybe my older colleagues will start to understand why I check all categories when answering "diversity" questionnaires. The emperor is entirely naked. Academic diversity is exposed for the sad, pathetic, hypocrite  game it is. I'm becoming hopeful that my generation will finally be able to point the obvious fact that the emperor is naked; thanks very much Ross Douthat: " The appropriate response to [Elizabeth Warren's] tale is probably sympathy rather than scorn. What does deserve scorn, though, is the academic culture in which an extremely distant connection to a Cherokee ancestor ends up being touted by a law school as proof of its commitment to diversity."
