"As Abigail Thompson, chair of the mathematics department at the University of California–Davis, described in a Wall Street Journal editorial: “To score well [on a diversity statement], candidates must subscribe to a particular political ideology, one based on treating people not as unique individuals but as representatives of their gender and ethnic identities. . . . This system specifically excludes those who believe in a tenet of classical liberalism: that each person should be treated as a unique individual, not as a representative of an identity group."

Mandatory diversity training for my wife yesterday. She told me about a breakout session where they were asked to describe a situation that made them feel like an outsider due to their race. A white male stood up, recounting his youth in LA, attending a school that was nearly all black/Latino and a football game where he was picked last (after the team captains chose along racial lines), yet scored the winning goal and was celebrated by his team. The next day, he was back to being ignored and left out of everything by people who, not sharing his ethnicity, weren’t interested to know him. That sort of turned the discussion on its head!
I just learned about Post Traumatic Slavery Disorder (PTSD) through my employer and how it's a real problem among African Americans in today's society that we need to spend resources to address. I'm dead serious.https://www.teenvogue.com/story/slavery-trauma-inherited-genetics

Well, then do not date her again.
