College students support diversity quotas - except on football team (Link)

From the article:

“I think it’s an absolute necessity,” said one student in response to Campus Reform reporter Ophelie Jacobson’s question about whether schools and the workplace should have diversity quotas.

“Absolutely, there should be more diversity in every single field,” another student said, echoing the sentiments of the majority of students who answered the question.

"But when Jacobson asked the students if they believed “college sports teams” should have diversity quotas, most of the students disagreed, stressing that it is important to prioritize “skill” above all else when you want to “win.”

“I feel like it should be based off talent, [sports] is something that’s a little bit different,” a third student said.

“With sports, it’s definitely more, like, more emphasis placed on ability,” another replied.

“Sports is different than college,” another student echoed. “Sports is not the same, I mean, talent is talent is talent is talent.”

“College sports is, like, about getting the best players for your team, and I don’t think we should focus on which race or ethnicity to get,” another student answered.

“A diversity quota for any sports team — it doesn’t make much sense,” another said. “It should be based on skill.”

Another student suggested the novel idea to “just let the skill shine, and whoever’s the best player deserves to be on the team.”

Gotta win that ball game!
