From commenter Jack D:
An important concept in the New Economy is “curation”. A desirable cheese shop, wine store, sock store, olive oil store, etc. doesn’t just put a random bunch of stuff on the shelf like some Wal-Mart and expect you to figure out what you really like. Rather they present you with a “curated collection” of socks, oils, etc. so that there are not any wrong choices – you get to chose from a few carefully chosen winners who will not disappoint you. The hard work has been done for you and you shouldn’t mind paying a few more pennies for the privilege.
Likewise, the modern university is supposed to present you, the student, with a curated collection of diverse students. There are blacks and Hispanics but not those violent ghetto types who will give you a fierce hangover like some rotgut bourbon. This is why Pablo “They” Gomez was so disappointing – Berkeley Hispanics aren’t supposed to be the kind who stab you. Likewise, this is where all the “Mattress Girl” anger comes from. The University has failed in its mission. You were supposed to be presented with a “curated” collection of men who would know that no means no (or that sometimes even yes means no under certain conditions) and they have failed in their curating mission. The admissions committee has failed to blackball a cad – what kind of country club is this?
