OPINION: We Need More Diversity Among The Racists At Boston College
Someone needs to say what we’ve all been thinking. The racists on this campus are incredibly homogenous, and I’m tired of this lack of diversity. Having racists of all different backgrounds would be a true benchmark of acceptance at Boston College.
Everyone keeps talking about how there’s no diversity on our campus and how we need to admit more AHANA+ students and hire more AHANA+ faculty. In the midst of this, people have forgotten about the least diverse group on campus, the racists themselves. We have no choice but to admit and retain new and different kind of racists here at Boston College.
Just once I would like to encounter a racist with a mustache, or a racist that is ginger, or maybe, just maybe, one who is extremely tall or short. Don’t get me wrong: I know all racists are different, but the Facebook profiles I’ve seen are pretty darn similar. Did they all tell each other to dress like 40 year olds and only pose in front of SAFTB or American flags? Do they ever get tired of wearing pastel button-downs?
Wake up people! Since we seem to have plateaued in the fight for racial diversity, the time is now to enact a policy of racist diversity. Our campus will not represent people from all backgrounds until we have a diverse group of racists to demean those people from different backgrounds.
And I’m not just talking about looks here. I want all different types of racism, not just your basic black and white shtick. I want to see some prejudice against Asian people, perhaps some hate towards Native Americans, and of course a healthy sprinkle of anti-Semitism.
My dream is to wake up to a campus where I can see a racist in Sperry’s or Doc Martens, from Upper or Newton, blonde hair or black hair, wearer of a Canada Goose or more of a shorts in January type of guy. So I guess this is an appeal to the admissions committee for next year to consider all types — because if I can’t have racial variety, I at least deserve racist variety.
