Gary Miller must really be angry about getting run off as chancellor of UNC-Wilmington. On his way out the door, he's left us with more bad news. Apparently, five diversity offices and a small army of administrators to manage them just isn't enough diversity spending. So we are adding a new Chief Diversity Officer to head the main Office of Diversity and Inclusion - one who will also sit on the white chancellor's cabinet and shield him from accusations of racism in exchange for a six-digit salary that will drive up tuition and consequently reduce black enrollment.

The advertisement for Position # 1141 reads as follows:

"The University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNCW) invites nominations and applications for the position of Chief Diversity Officer. This position requires the knowledge and ability to cultivate a vision, strategy and organizational structure to enable achievement of the campus’ strategic diversity efforts. The university believes that diversity, civility, and community are core campus values of a sense of place that enhances the academic environment and supports a robust educational experience for its students ..."

Let's stop for a second and review what we have thus far. Those three core values are vague and in need of some elaboration. Let's define them in order below:

1. Diversity is racial discrimination. The new CDO will he hired to ensure that racial discrimination is injected into as many of our personnel decisions as possible. Total success will mean that race was a factor in 100% of our employment decisions with character taking a back seat to skin color.

2. Civility is censorship. This just means that we will expand the prosecutorial powers associated with the Seahawk Respect Compact, which is used to quash criticism of university policies and to chill conservative speech in every classroom and administrative office.

3. Community is recruitment of like-minded individuals. It also means that we will continue to segregate our campus with "centers" for people of different races. We will also continue the practice of having separate graduation ceremonies for gays and separate meetings for black faculty and staff. It is unclear whether building "community" will entail bringing back separate white and colored restrooms and water fountains.
