‘Diversity Programs Make It Worse for Jewish Kids on Campus‘, Kenneth Marcus | Top Story, Ep. 23

Have diversity and inclusion programs backfired for Jewish students at North American universities?


Kenneth L. Marcus (former U.S. assistant secretary of education for civil rights and Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law) joins JNS editor-in-chief Jonathan S. Tobin to discuss the plague of anti-Semitism on college campuses and his efforts to use the law to fight it.

The two discuss the spread of anti-Semitism in the academy and how—powered by critical race theory and intersectionality—this has led to the creation of hostile and discriminatory environments for Jewish students. They also delve into how many on the left, including Jews, oppose extending legal protections for Jewish students.

“Top Story” also airs on JBS-TV.
