Diversity is a meaningless term

By Joshua P. Thompson Senior Attorney

Why?  Because it means different things to different people.  That’s exactly what is said in this recent article published in Pschyological Science.   This latest article shows that no one agrees on what is meant by “diversity.”  It’s quite sad that diversity can be a compelling governmental interest that justifies discrimination against individuals because of their skin color, even when nobody understands what is meant by it.  Hopefully Fisher rights this gross constitutional wrong.

[For more on the “diversity” concept, I strongly reccommend Peter Wood’s book, Diversity: The Invention of a Concept.]
