Irony Watch

Okay, if you haven't been living in a cave you've probably heard about the recent Cal Poly kerfluffle in which a white kid was punished for posting a flier in the multicultural center. FIRE has all the details.

So, because I wanted to see if the University had done any responding to FIRE in the media, I Googled the president of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Warren J Baker.

Didn't find anything new, but did run across this little blurb, which made my old friend Irony fall off the sofa laughing.

Look, it's Diversity Day! Notice anything odd about the picture of the Minority International Research Access Progam?

I'm sorry, but the photo of the white folk standing around congratulating themselves on promoting "diversity" just makes me think that the easily offended denizens of the Cal Poly multi-culti center missed out on a program that they Really. Should. Have. Attended.

The name of the program, again, was "It's Okay to Leave the Plantation."
