DEI Training Gone Wrong?

Two Jewish employees of Stanford University’s Counseling & Psychological Services (CAPS) division filed federal and state complaints alleging a hostile environment for Jewish employees in a diversity, equity and inclusion program created internally for CAPS staff.

“We have here a DEI program that was intended to promote and support diversity and inclusion, and what happened in reality is that those goals were undermined and perverted because what they did instead was promote prejudice and bigotry against one group,” said Alyza D. Lewin, the lead attorney for the complainants and president of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law, a nonprofit organization focused on defending and advancing Jewish people’s civil rights.

“There was a blind spot in this DEI program when it came to Jewish identity,” Lewin said. “It erased Jewish identity. There was no space for these Jewish employees to share their lived experience, to raise their concerns about anti-Semitism. When they tried, they were attacked.”


Antisemitism isn't going away

It's going to keep getting worse, and will eventually divide the Democratic party just like the labor party in GB.

Education is not a solution to most problems, because most people form opinions based on emotion, not reason. That's particularly true with bigotry.

Liberals and progressives tend to be educated, but that doesn't stop some students and professors from denying Jewish indigenity in Israel, or accusing Israelis of apartheid even though it's a completely silly analogy.

When it comes to Israel, progressives brains fall out of their heads.
