Gli studenti universitari della Florida sostengono le quote di diversità nelle ammissioni, assunzione di lavoro ma non per il calcio

“Penso sia una necessità assoluta,” one student told Campus Reform reporter Ophelie Jacobson.

“Come studente universitario di prima generazione di una famiglia ispanica è molto importante,” ha detto un altro.

tuttavia, they appeared more hesitant when asked whether those same standards should be applied to college sports teams.

I think that should be skill-based,” said one student.

Others said teams should be assembled based on talent and getting the best players, not focused on race or ethnicity.

Let the skills shine and whoever is the best player deserves to be on the team,” said another student.

Jacobson noted that if the Florida Gators’ offensive lineup reflected the school’s demographics it would comprise six White players, two Latino players, two Asian players, and one Black player. Most players on the team are Black.

If they’re best players fit for the job, then they deserve the spot,” said one student.

Asked whether this insight changes their mind on diversity quotas in college and the workplace, several admitted that it did.
