When Brains Explode July 28, 2007

Dinesh  D’Souza really doesn’t know what to do when faced with consistency.  How else to explain this column, devoted to the amazing fact that feminist advocates of affirmative action actually stand by their commitment to diversity even when it means occasionally favoring men over women?  No matter how many times I read the column, I really can’t tell whether he thinks this form of affirmative action is good or bad.  (Though it is clear that he views universities as heterosexual dating services, a view he takes to be shared by students and admissions personnel.) Many thanks to reader Zack for passing this one on to us.

    From the article:
    At the same time I think we should recognize that gender and race are two different things. Race is what civil rights activist Morris Dees termed “the painted face.” No one could say that male-female differences are equally irrelevant.

    Wow. Just wow. Irrelevant in terms of what? And race is only about skin color? Such an insightful columnist…
