Certain kinds of diversity training can actually exacerbate the problem by breeding resentment, according to Frederick Lynch, a professor of government at Claremont McKenna College in Claremont, Calif., and the author of The Diversity Machine: The Drive to Change the 'White Male Workplace.' "If it's in-your-face, people -- particularly Americans -- don't like that," he says. In addition, if people feel they have to "walk on eggshells" to avoid offending people, "that reinforces group barriers."Pity the leaders of the racial retreats don't listen to one of our professors.
