Racial Preferences: Doubt in the Priesthood
Dent, George W., Jr.
Academic Questions, v21 n3 p332-340 Sep 2008
Race preferences and the postmodern version of multiculturalism have always triggered opposition in academia, but it has seldom come from the political left. Now things are changing. Growing unease in the academic "priesthood" over preferences and multiculturalism may herald their end. Longstanding opponents of racial discrimination and identity politics will welcome some of the conclusions drawn by the new critics, while rejecting much of the reasoning used to reach them. Professor Dent discusses some of these critiques and the best way of responding to them. (Contains 9 footnotes.)
