Speaker: Honesty best policy

Diversity speaker Steve Birdine told a large group of UNM students Tuesday night that the answers to racial problems are as simple as being nice to each other. “The biggest problem we have in higher education is that we have a lot of experts who can’t communicate and have politicized diversity to the point that people aren’t honest with each other anymore,” he said. “If people just followed the golden rule — do unto others as you want them to do unto you — we would have no trouble getting along.” Birdine is the coordinator of Diversity Programs at Indiana University and president of Creative Diversity Communications. With racial tensions flaring up at UNM following an incident with a swastika being taped to a black student’s car while she was illegally parked outside of a fraternity, a variety of campus leaders sponsored Birdine’s visit.
