There's no excuse for this in a publicly supported school, esp. with a conservative legislature. They should be barred by state law from such discrimination, & given grief by the committee chairs when they go to the legislature to beg for $$$.

There is an uplifting American feel about a university, a workplace or a neighborhood brimming with people of different races. It is the product of a nation assembled of people from everywhere else. From many places, one people.

Other nations have diversity of a sort, but no one can go to France and become French. I cannot go to Brazil and become Brazilian. The diversity of America, an assemblage of skin colors painted with a wide swath of history from immigration to slavery, has become a uniquely beautiful concept.

Leave it to government to screw it up.
