It's official: MIT Department of Physics discriminates against white males

The following is the text of Massachusetts Institute of Technology's statement on diversity. Imagine the bolded statements (the bolding is ours) being applied to blacks, Asians, Muslims, Hindus ... anyone but the OK-to-hate white male:

Diversity in the MIT Department of Physics

The MIT Physics Department is committed to increasing the diversity of its faculty and student populations to improve our excellence and to better serve the society that supports our work.

Like in many physics departments, white males are over-represented in our student and faculty populations.  There are several reasons to pursue change, seeking to increase the number of women and under-represented minorities in our community:

Broadening the talent pool increases the talent.

At MIT we constantly strive for excellence in everything we do. Our level of excellence will be improved if we sample from the most inclusive population.

Attracting more students keeps us vital.

The US needs more students trained in science. To walk our talk about education, we must be more inclusive.

A more inclusive atmosphere enhances the quality of life for everyone. 

Being a physicist is not easy. Improving the climate helps everyone be happier and more productive.

As the US becomes more diverse, we must evolve to remain relevant.

White males are a decreasing minority in the US. The MIT mission statement calls us to serve the nation and the world.
