Ohio University Assigning Race-Based ‘Diversity Scores’ to New Faculty Applicants

This is just another example of the destruction of our system of higher learning

Published

on

Ohio’s Bowling Green State University is set to ignore academic excellence and rate new faculty applicants by their race and the liberal boxes they check.

University President Rodney Rogers announced the new policy in April adding that the policy would start on May one. The system includes a “diversity and inclusion” question on applications, but candidates who do not answer the question, or who otherwise do “not address their own positionality,” will be more likely to be rejected.

Per American Greatness.

The applications will then be considered before a faculty hiring committee, which will select five questions with which they can “score” the candidates on a five-point scale of “diversity and inclusion.” Candidates who earn a perfect score must show that they have “clear knowledge of, experience with, and interest in dimensions of diversity that result from different identities.” Applicants who do not “discuss identity” or say that they have “little experience with these issues” will ultimately be rejected.

In his announcement email, Rogers told faculty that they may scrap and rework the new system if it does not yield the diversity they are seeking.

The new system is part of Bowling Green’s broader “Diversity and Belonging Comprehensive Strategy and Plan,” which was first published in May of 2020. The plan allegedly aims to “remedy” the circumstances under which “not all people are afforded the same resources, treatment, and opportunity” at the college. Many other schools across the country have similarly ramped up their efforts to aggressively push more affirmative action-style programs and emphasize “diversity” in the wake of the race riots by Black Lives Matter last year.

This is just another example of the destruction of our system of higher learning. Instead of looking for academic excellence, Bowling Green is basing hiring practices on race and ethnicity, gender, and leftist claims of multiple genders, and sexual identity.

And people are paying for this garbage “education”?

Wyoming Witness Describes Restaurant Scene Caused by Gabby Petito’s Fiancé

Oh boy…

Published

on

The death of Gabby Petito has been a lengthy, slow-moving tragedy for much of the nation, and there is still some road left to be traveled.

Petito, who was confirmed dead on Tuesday after authorities suggested that they discovered her body over the weekend, went missing while on a cross-country road-trip with fiancé Brian Laundrie.

Just days before her death was confirmed, Laundrie went missing, likely to the Carlton Reserve in central Florida, where authorities are searching still.  The missing man had previously refused to cooperate with law enforcement in Gabby’s disappearance, leading to his being named a person of interest in her disappearance and death.

Those following the case are already aware of an incident in which the two were captured on police body cameras after a domestic dispute – a situation that led many to speculate as to the state of their relationship at the time of her death.

Now, a new incident has come to light, and not far from where Gabby’s body was found.

“I have chills right now,” Nina Celie Angelo told Fox News Digital Wednesday. “It’s crazy because it wasn’t just like we passed them on the street — it was a full blown incident.”

Angelo said she and her boyfriend, Matthew England, were in town for a wedding in late August. They were out to lunch at Merry Piglets, a Tex-Mex restaurant, between 1 and 2 p.m. on Aug. 27, when they said an agitated Laundrie began arguing with a waitress. Four and a half hours later, a travel-blogging couple passed Petito’s van at a campsite north of town.

Angelo, a photographer, said she couldn’t overhear the conversation but that she believed Laundrie was arguing with staff over the bill or about money. She described his body language as “aggressive” and said he left and returned about four times.

At one point, Petito came inside and apologized for Laundrie’s behavior, Angelo said.

Laundrie’s family has garnered quite a bit of criticism from their characterization of Brian as “missing”, as those following the case have suggested that he’s actually on the run.

Petito’s cause of death has not yet been made public.

Swamp Search Intensifies as Missing Influencer Confirmed Dead

Will Brian Laundrie be found in the muck at the bottom of the Carlton Reserve?

Published

on

The parents of Gabriel Petito are in mourning, officially now, as authorities have confirmed that their daughter is now deceased.

Petito’s body was found over the weekend in Bridger-Teton National Forest after an improbable tip by a fellow YouTube vlogger led police to her body, which appeared to have been placed about 900 feet away from where her van was parked.

This is, of course, the same van that her fiancé Brian Laundrie returned to Florida in on September 1st, sparking a national firestorm over his unwillingness to cooperative with authorities investigating her disappearance.

Now, with Petito’s fate confirmed, (and with the coroner calling it a “homicide”), Laundrie remains missing, possibly within the vast and wild Carlton Reserve in Florida.

Search crews headed back to the Carlton Reserve in Venice to look for the 23-year-old on Wednesday morning. Around noon, the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office SURF (Sheriff’s Underwater Recovery Force) team pulled up to the Carlton Reserve as the search continued.

“To confirm, yes, members of our Sheriff’s Underwater Recovery Force have responded to Carlton Reserve. This in addition to our Emergency Response Team, Air-1 & patrol,” the sheriff’s office tweeted. “SURF Team members are divers called upon to search bodies of water for evidence. These highly-trained deputies work in the most difficult and challenging environments imaginable. They are on call 24/7/365.”

Laundrie’s disappearance has infuriated those who’ve been following the case, especially as his parents refrained from reporting him missing from Tuesday to Friday of last week, giving what some online commenters considered a “head start” to escape.
