Joseph Epstein: The Tyranny Of Diversity


I'll note that holy "diversity" was never officially supposed to remedy past wrongs. Rather, "diversity" is supposed to be entirely forward-looking: it's supposed to be justified entirely on the grounds that "diversity" makes organizations more effective at what they are supposed to be doing. In fact, as is clear from Powell's decision in Bakke, it's always been a cheat--a way to accomplish the backward-looking ends of affirmative action without admitting it.
