Deaf Black Women Not Diverse Enough for College

This is unbelievable. A deaf black women who acts as a diversity officer at a college isn't diverse enough for the college. I know what you're thinking. Deaf. Black. Sure sounds like the college hit the diversity jackpot. I mean she's not 1/8 Cherokee like Elizabeth Warren but hey, deaf and black is pretty darn diverse. You know, their Human Resources guy won some kind of diversity award when they hired her. I bet there's a plaque right next to his night school diploma.

But it turns out that the the black deaf woman isn't diverse enough. The college suspended her. Guess why. You see, she signed a petition in her church to protect traditional marriage. So the college suspended her. Because to these imbeciles diversity has nothing to do with diversity of thought.

But the other thing that jumps out at me is you can't work at a college and be Christian.

Fox News reports:

Angela McCaskill, a 23-year veteran of the university, was placed on paid leave as the university investigates her support for traditional marriage.

“It recently came to my attention that Dr. McCaskill has participated in a legislative initiative that some feel is inappropriate for an individual serving as Chief Diversity Officer; however, other individuals feel differently,” wrote Gallaudet president T. Alan Hurwitz in an email sent to the campus community.

McCaskill’s attorney said they will hold a press conference on Tuesday — stressing that his client is not “anti-gay.”

McCaskill was one of 200,000 residents who signed a petition to put “Maryland’s Question 6” on the ballot. The measure is a referendum on same-sex “marriage.”

The Washington Blade published the names and addresses of every person who signed the petition. An anonymous faculty member spotted McCaskill’s name in the newspaper and immediately notified authorites.

Hurwitz said McCaskill, who earned the school’s first Ph.D as a deaf African-American woman, was immediately placed on leave. Her job remains in jeopardy
These people are tolerance Nazis. If you're not tolerant of what we say you should be tolerant of we will drum you out.

Ha ha, "deaf" isn't diverse at Gallaudet -- it's a college for deaf people. Otherwise, spot on!

Not only did she get the ax because of a thought crime, but because of a MAYBE thought crime. The petition, as I understand it, was to put the question on the ballot. So all her signature said was that she supported the American tradition of voting on issues.

I think the university just got into some dangerous territory there. But working in universities my entire career, I can say it is as oppressive of an environment as working for a Koch brother. Not going along with the mindset vil not be tolerated!

Prot Teios: And of course you know for a fact that working for a Koch brother is "oppressive." Loser language.

I love the sense that arises in which an individual's singular characteristics somehow either do or do not possess "diversity".

The arrogance....such overall sophomoric nonsense. These "people" are absolutely pathetic. My only hope is that the woman can sue these miserable swines .....and profit greatly from it.
