UCLA Prof Unravels Diversity Sham. UCLA historian Russell Jacoby notes:
Inasmuch as academic leftists champion diversity, a certain irony must be signaled. For decades they have poured scorn on ‘essentialism’ and posited that all identity is ‘constructed.’ After years of postmodern guff, the arguers reverse themselves: You are your group identity, essentialism, pure and simple.
He also notes an interesting trend documented in a study last year: The “ratio of Democrats to Republicans or Liberals or Conservatives” went from 1:1 in the 1920s to 2:1 in the 1950s to 14:1 in 2010.
