Pope Center Wants To Sandblast the Color Out of NC Higher Education

A North Carolina right-wing "think tank" (if "thinking" means "maintaining ideological purity"), connected to You Know Who, has issued a report on the University of North Carolina that strongly suggests that a retreat from all this confusing multiculturalism will save the country, or at least save rich white privilege.

Evidently, "western civilization" is the only civilization, and the only literature/history/political thought that should count is Anglo-Saxon in origin.

Just more racial politics. Maybe they should get Don Yelton as Dean of General Education. I hear he might be available.

At least they kept logic.

UNC-Chapel Hill is one of the best public universities in the world, period. That's in spite of the extreme anti-education cuts made by the Republicans.

Pope and his cronies are the only ones who seem to think the school needs fixing. The dumber people are, the easier it is for them to control them.

McCrony himself admitted he only wants the rich to have access to a liberal arts education, saying that it should only be available to people who "go to private schools (like the private liberal arts college he attended, Catawba College) and take those courses."

As President John Adams said "There are two types of education. One should teach us how to make a living. And the other how to live."
