Writing on Minding the Campus, attorney Louis Bonham explains how faculty members who are not happy with the mania for “diversity” at their schools can fight back.

Bonham begins:

Since I began writing about the cancer of wokeness currently metastasizing in American academia, I have been contacted by many concerned faculty members from coast to coast. They confirm, often with truly chilling examples, the dismal state of affairs — plainly illegal behavior is regularly implemented as official university policy, while critics are cowed by the threat of cancel culture. All of them are disgusted by what is happening at their institutions, and they ask the same question: what can we do?

Bonham advises: First, confirm questionable instructions (such as those that stack the deck against white men and Asians) in writing; second, ask for legal review of discriminatory instructions and policies; third, ask hard questions about them in a public forum.

He concludes:

Remember the old chestnut that “sunlight is the best disinfectant.” Much of the woke agenda on campus works because it is employed covertly. Force (or threaten to force) it into the light, and it will either retreat, or it will be easier to fight.
