Earlier this week, I delivered a presentation with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis exposing the “diversity, equity, and inclusion” bureaucracy in Florida’s public universities.
I based my presentation on my recent investigative reporting series, which has revealed the process of ideological capture at four public universities. These programs preach the values of tolerance and inclusion, but in reality, serve as vehicles for left-wing racialist ideology and partisan political activism. They are designed to replace the system of academic merit with a system of race-based preferences and discrimination—which, in many cases, explicitly violates federal civil rights law.
Here are the headlines from these investigative reports:
To address this problem, Governor DeSantis and Florida legislators have proposed a bill, HB 999, that would eliminate the DEI bureaucracy in all public universities statewide. This would immediately disrupt the process of ideological capture and send a clear signal to the rest of the nation that conservative taxpayers will no longer support left-wing political activism under the guise of neutral scholarship.

Ooh. That’s gonna leave a mark.
