Cultural Relativity and the Power of Critical Thinking
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 6-20-2016 | MOTUS

Cultural relativity, it will be the death of us, literally:

Because, you know, Islam is the religion of peace and is therefore as valid as Christianity. How did cultural relativism come to replace critical thinking in America? Maybe it started when the curriculum was dumbed down to the point of replacing math courses with “diversity studies.”  “What,” you say? “That would never happen? Certainly not at the 4th largest public university in the state of Michigan.”

A faculty committee has proposed adding a three credit hours requirement in diversity to the general education curriculum at Wayne State University. It also recommended that WSU drop its university-wide requirement in mathematics, an idea that was carried out on June 13.

“We are proposing the creation of specific ‘Diversity’ courses, with students required to take one course in this designation,” said a document from the General Education Reform Committee, which is recalibrating what the university will expect from all students who earn a degree from the state university. It released the proposal in May.

The committee report said, “These courses will provide opportunities for students to explore diversity at the domestic level and consider the ways in which it intersects with real world challenges at the local, national and/or global level.” – Zero Hedge

Butt don’t worry, “This decision was made largely because the current (math) requirement is at a level already required by most high school mathematics curriculum." Yes, that’s certainly reassuring; the generation that can’t make change without the aid of a cash register.

If Islam is indeed the religion of peace, a lot of Muslims don’t seem to be studying very hard.

Why don’t the imans telling the non-Muslims focus on spreading that message to their fellow Muslims instead?
