The “Home News Tribune” in Middlesex County, NJ reports that “Eagle Scouts are a rare breed.”

Indeed they are.
But someone better tell poor Ken Stigner, Jr (profiled in the article) that he won’t be welcome at his college-to-be.
“”Being an Eagle Scout will help me with my life goals,” said Stigner, a 2005 Monroe Township High School graduate who plans to study television production at Syracuse University in the fall. “The things I learned during my project will stay with me forever.”
You see, Ken…. Syracuse University doesn’t really want your kind.

In fact, a few weeks ago I contacted the Syracuse University’s Office of Multicultural Affairs whose stated mission is:
The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA) provides the necessary support and guidance needed to encourage students to become members of a community respectful of differences. OMA assists students to grow into individuals willing to take a proactive stance against oppression in all its forms.
OMA offers one-on-one support for students of color at Syracuse University. OMA reaches out to students of all colors who are struggling with mixed messages they may receive in dealing with the issues of race and diversity in their own communities.
So I asked the head of OMA what policies are in place to deal with the discrimination faced by conservative students and faculty. After all, conservatives are discriminated against across America’s campuses.
My response was a non-answer. But what else would I expect from the University that bans the Boy Scouts?
