The Perversity of University: UCLA Students Will Have to Take a Course in "Diversity" in Order to Graduate

Don't you be calling it indoctrination, though, 'cuz that would be "racist":
Chancellor Gene Block, who actively endorsed the proposal, issued a statement after the results were announced. “A diversity-focused course requirement has been a longstanding priority for me because of its clear value to our students, so I am very pleased with the campuswide faculty vote approving the proposal,” Block said. 
Under the requirement, students will be required to earn at least a C in a course that "substantially addresses racial, ethnic, gender, socioeconomic, sexual orientation, religious or other types of diversity." Currently more than 200 courses, in a range of disciplines, qualify, and more courses are expected to be created over time.
To mix a metaphor: when the winds of "diversity" are allowed to blow in, critical thinking flies out the window. The result: a generation of mush-brained zombies who, try as they might, cannot think for themselves.
