Diversity chief signs anti-gay petition.

Does anyone else see a disconnect there?

I agree she shouldn't be punished for her private beliefs but it does make one wonder if her diversity ends when it comes to gay folks.

Does her position have the power to deny entry to otherwise qualified students just because they are gay?

How does she define diversity?

I hold that she is fully free to sign ANY petitions she wishes AS LONG AS SHE DOES HER JOB.

The bigots can no longer say there is no connection between the black struggle for rights and ours. Unless they want to claim blacks didn't suffer under apartheid.
