Trump and his cult of followers have all but declared war on academia and the intellectual elitists. A quick look at Trump’s advisers and legislation proposed by people with a clear agemda to undermine progressive policies have swept the country by surprise with no thought about the target population or unintended consequences.
This is the very worst of the worst. DeVos, Sessions, only god knows who else is trying to roll back civil rights and real federal programs such as Title I and Title IX aimed towards providing a diverse student body and work force. From the poor white discrimination lawsuits to rolling back affirmative action policies, it is blatantly clear that Trump and his white trash followers need someone to blame for their failure to reach the America Dream. More on this a bit later.
