The Texas A&M Chapter of the Young Conservatives of Texas held an affirmative action bake
sale, “to protest the creation of a new position addressing diversity at Texas A&M University,”
reports a conservative news website, townhall.com (see link info below).
report says a similar initiative by YCT’s at Southern Methodist University was “shut down” by the
administration…. A&M YCT student Rebecca Falkowski is quoted as follows: “During our pledge drive,
we will be seeking out ‘non-underrepresented-minority’ students and faculty supportive of affirmative
action who wish to express, in writing, their willingness to give up their spot at Texas A&M to be
replaced by a member of a racial class who would be more valued by the vice president of diversity,”
But I wonder if Falkowski realizes that women are considered
a protected class under affirmative action practices?
Again, according to
the report, students seemed to be alleging that an incoming vice president of diversity would be
supporting “discrimination” (via affirmative action?) and opposing conservative principles.
