UNC Board of Governors votes 22 to 2 to eliminate DEI programs | Eastern North Carolina Now

DEI is poistonours program of racist and Marxist indoctrination


UPDATE:  North Carolina has become the latest state to eliminate DEI in its universities with the Board of Governors of the UNC system voting 22 to 2 to eliminate the programs systemwide.  This will free over $90 million of taxpayer money that can be used more productively in our universities  One of the board members voting to eliminate the prrograms was Dr. Pearl Burris-Floyd, who had previously been her county's first DEI director.  She called the university DEI program "a mistake".




A vote by the Board of Governors of the UNC system is expected today to end the university system's DEI network statewide.  The UNC-Chapel Hill trustees have already zeroed out their DEI spending and transfered the money to campus security.

A government transparency site, Open the Books, has found that statewide, the DEI network of our state universities has been consuming $91 ,million per year of taxpayer money.  That includes $3.77 million at East Carolina University.  Other states, starting with Florida have been cancelling these far left programs.



DEI is an insidious program based on Marxist principles that is overtly racist.  Michelle Morrow, GOP nominee for Superintendant of Public Instruction calls it "Division, Exclusion, Indocrintation".  Sean Ono Lennon, son of The Beatles' John Lennon, calls it "Dumb Evil Idiots."

When Governor deSantis took over in Florida, New College was virtually a far left hippy commune, and we he appointed new trustees to move it to a traditional liberal arts college, a lot of those lefties left, and good riddance.

New College abolished DEI and did not have quotas, and the result was an INCREASE in enrollement of minorities. When a college or university accepts students based on them as individuals, as New College does, instead of by racial quota, it is a positive thing for everybody.

In short, Little Bobbie, you spin is your usual BS.

Here is what DEI does - half of the graduates of UCLA Medical School can't pass the medical licensing exams. I guess there will be pressure to have those exams dumbed down, too. Medicine is one area we need the best and the brightest, not those who meet a quota.

Do you even read- at New College they lowered the entrance qualification, took a whole lot of athletes who tend to be black and offered them a spot. On the one hand, good for them, on the other hand, a lot of students fled New College.
So essentially, they did the thing you guys b*tch about the most. They slanted they enrollment by race. Ha!
And none of you bothered to read that far. Just cherry picked what you thought was the good stuff. And that my friends is why you wont win the war. You may win some battles, but you gotta be smart to win the war.

Don't quote Dr. King. We shot him too.

Fairness is based on the principles of Dr. Martin Luther King that people "should be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin". The only difference between the DEI ideology and the KKK ideology is the direction of the descrimination. But you Marxists want racial division for political purposes, don't you Bolshevik Bob?

White supremacy promoted for the first 200 years, and now the horror of fairness over whelms your sensibilities. Oh the humanity!

New College in Sarasota, FLorida is a good example of how DEI pandering in often not the best way to reach thinking minority students. Governor deSantis sought to remake it as a traditional school and appointed trustees to take it in that direction. It was the first state college or university to, on its own, repeal DEI, years before that was done in the state's entire university system. The year after they abolished DEI, black enrollment tripled and Hispanic enrollment doubled. There are apparently a lot of thinking minority students who want to earn their position not be given a free ride.

"Dumb Evil Idiots" is an apt description of those who promote DEI like Little Bobbie. Sean Ono Lennon hit the nail on the head. Of course Bobbie is more likely to follow Lenin than Lennon. It looks like we have some Dumb Evil Idiots at BCCC, too.

BCCC pulled a fast one to put in Marxist DEI. They took an existing position that did something else and changed its mission to DEI, then told the woman occupying the position that she had to re-apply to keep her job with its new mission, which she did not do, so they hired a new person to do DEI. When I was in state government, things like that would be fixed by eliminating the position in the budget bill. I hope our county commissioners have the backbone to do that and eliminate this position.

BCCC advertises this racist rubbish on their website.

Hopefully, the Board of Governors will finally do the right thing and eliminate this racist and Marxist program and use the money for something more construtive. It is appalling that RINO David Boliek sat on that UNC Board of Governors for years to let all of this evil be funded, and now we are stuck with him as GOP candidate for State Auditor.

Oh, and it is not surprising to see Bolshevik Bob support this Marxist program and to express his racist dislike of white men, who are the targeis of DEI racism.

Yes, it appears white men will have the freedom to discriminate without having to acknowledge the implication of their actions. Wouldn't want to melt the snowflakes.
