You guys got to get hip to the new academic canon of.......Multiculturalism & Diversity. Why it's practically a dicipline of it's own!! My wife's working on her doctorate and is a graduate teaching assistant and if she were to dare raise the points that you guys made she would be shunned in the English Dept. No one could dare to challenge the Political Correctness thought police without committing career suicide. You think I'm kidding?......no way !! My wife won't let me go to faculty receptions.......she's afraid I'll punch out somebody. BTW.....last time I checked USC was private.....so they can do as they please. I haven't given one cent to my old alma mater since they established a Co-ordinator for Gay and Lesbian Rights. If they got $80,000 a year to pay her they don't need my donation. The beat goes on.
