Top university is endangering lives with one disturbing “woke” initiative that will leave you shocked

Far-left radicals have had free reign on college campuses for decades.

And the chickens are coming home to roost.

Now a top university is endangering lives with one disturbing “woke” initiative.

The Left has adopted the “woke” trinity of DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusivity) as their means to bring about equality of outcome.

The materialist Marxism of the past has long been discredited, so leftists began gravitating toward cultural Marxism.

Instead of dividing people by class, the Left divides people by race, sex, sexuality, gender identity, et cetera.

By attempting to get equal outcomes based on identity politics, the “woke” bean counters have to lower standards in some areas because there is not a proportional distribution of talent in every single endeavor.

University DEI failure

Universities around the country have lowered standards for “under-represented” groups, particularly fields such as STEM, in order to goose their DEI numbers.

This has happened for years, but it’s starting to be a serious problem because lives are literally on the line.

UCLA Medical School lowered standards to increase black enrollment, and the result has been the degradation of the professional school’s ranking.

The Washington Free Beacon reported that “when it came time for the admissions committee to consider one such student in November 2021—a black applicant with grades and test scores far below the UCLA average—some members of the committee felt that this particular candidate, based on the available evidence, was not the best fit for the top-tier medical school, according to two people present for the committee’s meeting. Their reservations were not well-received.”

Jennifer Lucero, the dean of admissions, unloaded on the admissions officers who raised concerns about the applicant in question.

Lucero said, “Did you not know African-American women are dying at a higher rate than everybody else?”

Leftists have adopted the idea that black patients need black doctors in order to receive quality care.

It’s an absurd notion.

Black patients need qualified doctors, just like everyone else.

Lucero added that the candidate’s scores were not relevant because “we need people like this in the medical school.”

UCLA Med in decline

That is incredibly dangerous thinking.

One of the admissions officials wrote in an email, “We are not consistent in the way we apply the metrics to these applicants. . .This is troubling.”

Sending substandard doctors out into the real world could get someone killed.

The official added, “I wondered. . .if this applicant had been [a] white male, or [an] Asian female for that matter, [whether] we would have had that much discussion.”

Since Lucero’s hiring, UCLA Med has slipped in the U.S. News & World Report rankings from 6th to 18th.

An admissions committee member told The Free Beacon, “I have students on their rotation who don’t know anything. . .People get in and they struggle.”

Researchers have long written about the “mismatch” principle where an applicant gets admitted to a program that’s too demanding and fails, whereas he or she could have succeeded at a less competitive school and learned at a proper pace.

A UCLA faculty member said, “I wouldn’t normally talk to a reporter. . .But there’s no way to stop this without embarrassing the medical school.”

These problems are only going to get worse so long as “woke” administrators are given carte blanche.
