Italians are making CUNY an offer they can't refuse.
They claim the university discriminates against them. The evidence: A judge ruled that there was discrimination in the past and the lack of progress has been "unconscionable." The university acknowledged a "need" to recruit more Italian-Americans. And the Equal Opportunity Employment Comission of New York ruled their case has merit and yet . . .
the New York Times thinks it's a farce because Italians are white.
My thoughts: I don't know what definition of white they are using but those wops and guineas are pretty much half-way to being "the blackest specimen of the wilds."
I'd know. I'm pretty much a full-blooded Italian.
And don't Italian's comprise more than 8% of the city population? So why are "Italian-Americans represented [by] about 7 percent of the full-time instructional staff[?]"
Probably the same reason white people make up about 65% of the U.S. population and no more than 50% of the MIT undergraduate study body.
