Yale Will Eliminate a Beloved Introductory Art Class for Being Too White, Male, and Western

“It’s good to include more perspectives and to ensure that a liberal arts education is not excessively focused on Europe. But diversity by addition is vastly preferable to diversity by subtraction. When a university eliminates an introductory art class because a tiny number of ideologues object to the whiteness and maleness of it all, it feels like they are declining to teach history because some people don’t like what happened. The West’s outsized influence on the events of the last several centuries may very well be problematic, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t real.”
