Michigan’s premier public university seems to have a fixation upon advancing the ideal of ‘diversity’ that could go unmatched in even the most left-wing and progressive academic circles.
The latest reports place the expenses related to the University of Michigan’s ‘diversity officer’ staff as around $10.6 million dollars, spent to employ 82 people. According to Mark Perry, an economics researcher at the American Enterprise Institute, these expenses would be enough to cover full in-state tuition for 708 students if appropriated purposes.
The duties of Michigan’s ‘diversity officers’ remain unclear, but it’s hard to imagine that the 10+ million dollars spent by the University to employ them is being best utilized when it instead could be used to give more than 700 students a full ride to one of the nation’s most prestigious and expensive universities.
The school had promised to devote a whopping total of $85 million to advancing diversity beyond 2021. It appears that much of the fortune will end up in the pockets of the school’s army of diversity officers, many of whom make more than $100,000 a year. The school’s “Vice Provost for Equity and Inclusion & Chief Diversity Officer,” Robert Sellers, clocked in with a shocking annual salary of $396,000- more than the President of the United States.
The gluttony of major universities and colleges is built upon the backs of financially suffering young people, in large part through the dubious and deceptive student loan industry. The administration of schools like University of Michigan are fine with charging exorbitant yearly tuition to students(total costs for annual out-of-state students at Michigan clock in at a massive $62,176) if that’s what it takes to fund a bloated campus ‘diversity’ bureaucracy.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise that many of America’s young people are declaring independence from the the corrupt university system and exploring alternative options for life advancement, such as trade school.
SICK: University of Rhode Island Professor Erik Loomis Believes There’s “Nothing Wrong” With Murder of Aaron Danielson
Why is he still teaching?
A University of Rhode Island professor argued that there is “nothing wrong” with the murder of Portland conservative demonstrator Jay Danielson last month on his personal blog. Danielson, a Patriot Prayer demonstator, was murdered by “100% ANTIFA” militant Michael Reinoehl. Reinoehl admitted to the murder shortly before being killed by US Marshals, who sought to apprehend the homicide suspect when he wielded an assault rifle.
Loomis,who identifies himself as a historian on Twitter, rebutted an argument citing that Reinoehl admitted to murdering Danielson. On a blog comment, he wrote, “he killed a fascist. I see nothing wrong with it, at least from a moral perspective.”
He went on to elaborate in his defense of the murder in a later blog comment.
“Yes, sometimes violence is necessary, say to avoid greater physical harm, i.e. self-defense, or to defeat a literal army of fascists who are trying to kill people. But, ideologically, I think the idea that violence is good if it’s against our political enemies is a core part of fascism, and so the ideological opposition to that idea should be its opposite – that violence as a general rule is bad, unless the specific context of that situation requires a violent response.”
Reinoehl laid in wait in a Portland parking lot to ambush and murder Aaron Danielson during a Patriot Prayer caravan through the city, chambering a handgun before he even approached Danielson. He was charged with second-degree murder in the killing, although his death at the hands of law enforcement serving his arrest warrant ensures he won’t face a trial for his actions.
Loomis has gone on to accost anyone who challenges his endorsement of the murder as a “fascist.”
That's right. And no fascists will intimidate me either. Including you.
