Letter to the editor: Lack of thought diversity on college campuses

Posted on Feb 28 2018 - 8:17pm by Walter Hill

It is such a refreshing column that Will Hall wrote in The DM regarding the lack of thought diversity on our college campuses.

I’m a graduate of Ole Miss and currently reside in Oxford. The only narrative that our higher learning institutions support, advance and advocate to our young people today is: “big government – good … self reliance – bad.”

Rarely, if ever, do we hear from the conservative professors or deans, for the fact that their tenure, or lack of, will surely be tarnished. Publicly challenging the progressive talking points of the far left will likely not be a career-advancing move.

Thank you, Will Hall, for your boldness in stating facts. I hope your professors will not choose to punish your differentiating opinions. But then again, facts are funny things and do not always support the emotional narratives of the progressive movement.
