The reason why I hate diversity is because it’s a lie.
On a college campus, true diversity is actually a really great thing. It’s not easy but it’s a very important educational experience. Having people from different places, with very different opinions, of different races and ethnicities, etc is a great thing on campus. My department is diverse by virtue of teaching 7 languages, most of which are taught by native speakers. It’s so good to have all these different people. It’s also very hard. An Italian mentality is different from Germanic is different from Ukrainian is different from Kuwaiti, and so on. Totally worth it, though.
But the word “diversity” is never used in this sense. It definitely doesn’t imply a variety of opinions or cultural norms. It is only used to mean “we need more black people around to patronize and use to make ourselves feel virtuous.” I wouldn’t object to the first part. It’s not a bad idea at all to have more black people in any capacity on campus. But that wouldn’t be diversity. Nothing is really diversity until a bunch of very coddled individuals enacts some ridiculous self-flagellation drama around it.
