I just read an article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel entitled "Minority professors rare in sciences."
The article sites a study that stated "Minorities are less likely to enter and remain in science and engineering when they lack mentors and role models."
Now I have not read the study and as such I may be fairly accused of being intellectually lazy. That aside, I have a problem with the above quote.
The quote assumes that people of one race or gender are incapable of mentoring or role modeling for someone of another race or gender.
I know that there are some for whom anything said or done in the name of diversity must be good. Do any of my readers wish to take a crack at defending the notion that a member of one race can't mentor someone of another race? Or do we all agree with me that this notion, emanating from the left, is quite obviously racist?
