Consequences of Educational "Diversity" and "Tolerance"

The Intolerant Tolerants by Fred Bills: "How can I get kicked out of a college party by discussing the War in Iraq; a war that involves the people of our generation, a war involving our friends, brothers, and sisters, and be shown the door because I have a different opinion? And from the party of 'tolerance,' the banner bearers of 'diversity'? Apparently diversity of opinion is not so well tolerated if it comes from someone with the same tone of skin and an Anglo-Saxon name. "
Part of an first person essay / editorial from a former undergraduate discussing his experience holding a unpopular opinion - supporting the Iraq War. Worth a read...
