Mahdatory diversity courses do nothing useful

A crminiology prof at Eastern Carolina University found out that:

After assessing the bias of students before and after the course—using prompts such as “a woman should worry less about their rights and more about becoming good wives and mothers” and “if blacks would only try harder they could be just as well off as whites”—Stacey found that the course hadn’t altered students’ attitudes towards race or gender.

Only their attitudes towards homosexuality had changed, she found.

“The results of the t-test indicate that the only significant change over time in the scales was in attitudes toward homosexuality generally,” Stacey reports. “This would suggest that the course has no effect on [attitudes towards women], symbolic racism, or attitudes toward gays/lesbians specifically.”

that’s actually better than I expected; I’d have figured the courses would make matters worse.

Especially given that their purpose is not to foster diversity, but rather to provide jobs for activists and teach students not to question the Big Left’s narrative.
