White Males Now a University Minority By James Reed
As usual the future rushes up to us, with the decadent universities being the first to show the decline. Now white males are a minority being put in the diversity net, and soon this will be the case for the entire society, as it falls apart:
“Universities are setting targets to recruit more white male students after low numbers meant they are now classed a “minority group”. Essex and Aston Universities have become Britain’s first non-elite institutions to write the target into their official recruitment plans, putting white males on a par with Black students and women engineers. White British students are in a minority at roughly one in ten institutions, according to the Higher Education Statistics Agency. Meanwhile on certain courses such as pharmacy, business and some science degrees, more than seven in 10 students is from an ethnic minority. In 2016-17, 27 per cent of the UK undergraduate intake were white males, down from 30 per cent in 2007-08. Oxford University has previously announced a drive to attract more of the group. Nick Hillman, director of the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI), which has released a report on the plight of young men in education, told the Mail on Sunday: 'When putting together our report, we were shocked to find so few higher education institutions had these sorts of targets. “The problem is so evident and we've continued to go backwards.” "Some people oppose this whole agenda - we were told we were wrong to look at gender and should care only about class.” The Institute’s report calls for more foundation year courses preparing students for studying a degree as a means of encouraging more young men to apply.”
Perhaps I have been over-optimistic in my on-going campaign for the universities to be closed down. Perhaps the more likely scenario is that these institutions will ultimately wither from within, decay and fall away, like rotten fruit on a vine.
