In supporting the use of race in admissions in a WSJ piece this week, the U of Texas president said that he has observed the value of diversity in broadening the pool of ideas in a classroom.
So wouldn't it add to the diversity of the student body if classes contained a few people who were not really very smart? Some with bad hygiene? Some Buddhists? Some criminals? Some old people? Some people who don't speak English? Some doctors? Some libertarians? Some welfare queens? Some Canadians? Some junkies? At least one transvestite?
Seems to me that a classroom full of really smart white and black people under the age of 23 is really very diverse.
