Liberal memes debunked: Drug testing for welfare

feeding 5000

Insistence on diversity is the opposite of diversity

In a letter to the editor of the Daily Bruin, UCLA's campus newspaper, a UC Berkeley alumnus encapsulates the problem with obsessing over diversity.  His view mirrors my own on this issue.

Why shouldn’t religion be taught in schools?
