Higher re-education 

What do the Chinese treatment of dissenters to the Communist regime and diversity training have in common? David Beito says 'plenty'. He carries a story of Glenn Singleton (previously mentioned on this blog here) using numbers from a scoring system in a training exercise to hang around the necks of the participants. The numbers represent one's ranking in support of affirmative action and racial awareness. Singleton then has them stand by rank.
The worst part of it, however, is the groveling readiness of so many faculty to subject themselves to public degradation under the abusive eyes of Singleton's associates. Meanwhile, the same government schools and colleges which are wasting funds and time on this nonsense continue to dumb down standards and preside over the tyranny of low expectations for all students, black and white.
