Of course I don't want anyone to be injured, but other than that, I hope they keep up this insanity forever.

People are starting to wake up to exactly how crazy they are.

Gosh, I hope so. It’s eerily like China’s Cultural Revolution.

Yes you just can't make this stuff up. So much more funny than comedy shows these days.

Well, that's pretty easy, since most comedy shows have turned into PSAs for TDS. :D

Love those TLAs. ;)

Upon obtaining an email sent out to the speakers, the university stated that the conference was called off because the presenters who had been selected to speak at the conference did not “reflect the diverse St. Kate's community of today nor the world of tomorrow we are committed to creating.”

According to the author of the email, the cancellation was not due to “the quality of [the speaker’s] presentation material or credentials.” Rather, the organizers of this event insisted on “modeling the ideal state today in everything we do.”

The blind process used to pick the speakers was based solely on the themes of the conference—“Explore your purpose, Ignite your passion, and Inspire excellence.” This was designed to eliminate over-representing certain industries over others.

Apparently, this process yielded results that “led to a racial and ethnic blind outcome."

This suggests that most, if not all the scheduled speakers ended up being white. Consequently, the speakers were determined to be an unacceptable representation of the “ideal state” envisioned by conference organizers.

This event was an opportunity for 30 qualified women with diverse upbringings and areas of expertise to advance their careers and that of others by meeting new contacts and networking. If not for the color of their skin—which became an issue only after the blind selection process—they would have gotten the chance to do so.

Unfortunately, this is not uncommon in Minnesota.

As the Star Tribune reported last August, the “Loft Literary Center’s conference on writing for children and young adults” was also canceled after complaints that 21 of 22 speakers were white. This was not an intentional outcome and only occurred because many of the “writers of color” could not make it during MEA weekend.

One hopes that St. Catherines is unsuccessful in creating this racist world they're so nobly striving for.

There's an app for that now.

http://rentaminority.com/
Rent-A-Minority is a revolutionary new service designed for those oh-shit moments where you've realized your award show, corporate brochure, conference panel is entirely composed of white men. For, like, the fifth year in a row. Suddenly you're being called out on Twitter and you need to look not-racist and not-misogynist fast.

The only surprising thing about that is that it appears to be a spoof.
