The Jefferson Council has heard from a tenured University of Virginia professor who has been required to submit a statement detailing his contributions to Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) in his teaching, research and service. In response, he has composed the following parody. Seeking to avoid administrative retribution and social ostracism, he asks to remain anonymous.
I pledge allegiance to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, and to those People for whom it represents, without liberty and justice for all.
I promise to discriminate by preferencing certain demographic groups over others, and to stereotype by identifying some demographic groups as “oppressors” and others as “victims,” regardless of individual differences.
Further, I commit to ignore all science that highlights many forms of “privilege” that substantially reduce any racial or gender effects, such as: income, status, network, height, weight, age, looks, IQ, likeability, humor, health, and so forth.
I denounce Martin Luther King and strive to judge people solely by their gender and skin color and not by the content of their character.
In service to DEI, I promise to completely ignore ideological diversity, as free and independent thinkers might corrupt the DEI movement.
Finally, I pledge to indoctrinate this in every class and with every student.
Sums it all up and good for him/her. Need more of that.
Brilliant! If I were still in school I would definitely take his class. He definitely sees the irony of it all.
What would be the best way for alums and students to voice their opposition to the DEI and CRT bullish*t?
Kevin Short, if you haven’t already, join The Jefferson Council: http://www.the Jefferson council.com. We are fighting publicly and behind the scene, andare winning!
Wahoo74, I did and I’m looking forward to finding out about ways to bring more balance to the university.
Kevin, great. Thanks for joining TJC. I am confident that we will be pleased with what happens the next few months, most particularly the new University Counsel AG Miyares will appoint, and the 4 UVA BOV appointees Gov. Youngkin will make effective July 1.
I hope someone can inform Angela Sailor in Governor Youngkin’s cabinet. Can the governor do something about these requirements?

Judith Watkins is this the email where we can voice our opinion?
What a superb parody. Whoever this is, bravo! No better way to negate leftist hubris than through intelligent sarcasm.
Excellent response for the fascist requirements by those requiring “oaths” of obeisance to DIE. Hopefully more professors will stand up to them.
DEI has become the 21st century Honor System at UVA. This must change.
