Gov. Ricketts urges Nebraskans to oppose UNL’s diversity plan
"Nebraskans need to let the University know that they reject their plan to apply CRT on UNL's campus," wrote Ricketts.
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts wrote in a column, urging Nebraskans to take action to reject UNL’s diversity plan.
UNL’s diversity plan includes regular anti-racist teaching seminars, reviewing UNL’s hiring process in the context of race and working with police to prevent unfair treatment of minority members.
“Nebraskans need to let the University know that they reject their plan to apply CRT on UNL’s campus,” wrote Ricketts.
Ricketts writes that three of the regents, Paul Kenney, Jim Pillen and Rob Schaefer have previously opposed CRT.
The University of Nebraska Board of Regents is meeting this Friday at Varner Hall. Ricketts has asked Nebraskans to step up and stop the approval of UNL’s diversity plan.
“More need to step up so we can stop this radical ideology,” wrote Ricketts.
Ricketts reacted to UNL’s diversity plan last week during a Monday morning press conference.
During the press conference, Ricketts said, “What we should be striving for and what America is about, is equal opportunity. Making sure we’re getting individuals opportunities to succeed. We cannot guarantee equal outcomes. That’s Marxism. That’s Communism.”
