“The idea that successful artists and university professors are incapable of coming to their own beliefs through their own investigation is insulting.”

According to a Campus reform piece that appeared yesterday, that’s what a professor at the UNC School of the Arts said about an upcoming diversity workshop arranged by the school. The piece also attributes the following statement to the unnamed professor:

Engaging a workshop leader who sorts incoming students by their skin color and then subjects students of one race to three days of intensive indoctrination is all you need to know about this chilling effort to enforce closed-mindedness and eliminate diversity of thought on the UNCSA campus. … I am reminded of the re-education camps and totalitarian regimes. It seems like the UNCSA administration is familiar with George Orwell’s Animal Farm. Instead of using it as a warning about totalitarianism and forced groupthink, they are using it as an instruction manual. 

No wonder he or she wants to remain anonymous!
