RE: Good Grief - This Idiocy at WMU Too?
God some of you guys are messed up. It's so arrogant to think the university should just constantly cater to Grand Rapids boomers. How many orientation leader jobs should they reserve for white kids? What's the minimum acceptable percentage of white kids to be in a photo posted by the university? Real diversity in terms of race and class is something I think WMU does admirably well. Compared to a school like Michigan, I've always thought Western can really make a claim that it offers educational opportunity to a wide variety of people.

If the demographic is too brown, just go support GVSU. Or you could probably even find a whiter campus! Maybe Hope! Or Calvin!

Also, the progress of this thread is pretty interesting. We started at "Black girl speaking out against mostly white audience singing black spirituals is ridiculous and bad and a sign of 'this idiocy' coming to WMU." Now we've arrived at what is perhaps the logical conclusion or the root of the thinking that started the thread in the first place: "There's just too many brown people here!"

This thread has really become out of control. Unless anyone has anything substantial (and not racist) to say, I'm going to close it.

Only 1 was white.

It's going to be harder & harder for the school to pull from the non-Chicago non Detroit areas if they celebrate diversity but neglect the white market. Not because whites are racist, not because whites and other colors are different, but because it's a sign that the school's more interested in political narratives than education.

I live in GR. Grand Valley St doesn't do stuff like that. What do you know, GVSU's kicking our butt in enrollment.

Good luck pulling those students more interested in an education, Western, because you're not gonna get them.

Want the best for the school, will celebrate anyone who attends, want as many who can attend to attend, and we are all united Bronco Nation. Just not sure the school's approaching it the best way from a marketing perspective.

You are an embarrassment to your alma mater.

That might be the most ignorant post in the history of this forum - and there are some doozies.

I'm sure it makes you feel better that they are all losing their jobs now due to the budget. Go away. Drop your allegiance to WMU. Clearly you didn't learn enough when you were here. You are an embarrassment.

Agree Colin. Just delete it. Some of these comments are appalling and disgusting.
