Why Did We Do This to Ourselves?

From the National Journal:

School Is Over for the Summer. So Is the Era of Majority White U.S. Public Schools.

When schools reopen this fall, demographic changes will have tipped the balance to nonwhite students.

Why did we do this to ourselves? The best excuse is that American elites did this to America in a fit of absentmindedness.

Christopher Caldwell famously said:

“One moves swiftly and imperceptibly from a world in which affirmative action can’t be ended because its beneficiaries are too weak to a world in which it can’t be ended because its beneficiaries are too strong.”

But, there is also — and in this case perhaps more significant — the massive dereliction of duty by elites. The more the evidence piles up that they ought to apologize to us, the more they will make it dogma, punishing expressions of skepticism with social, career, and legal penalties, that this was a Great Idea. They went and replaced boring vanilla white bread student bodies with vibrant diversity and we ought to get down on our knees and thank them for it everyday.
