    Are these facts surprising?

    Well then the students should immediately be promoted to Deans and Professors

    BTW This report came from the Phillip Merrill College of Journalism. How dare the University of Maryland name its Journalism College after a white male. They should change the name to the Jim Vance College of Journalism, but they should not give the Merrill family their money back.

    And if Thomas Kunkel had the courage of his report, he should resign his white ass now.

    Every department of every University should reflect the demographic proportions of the community where they are located, including the Division 1 athletic teams

    To be fair, the broadcast wing of the department is led by two women, one white and one back. Both the radio and TV.

    J-schools are primarily white, so why should anyone be surprised that the administrators are white as well?

    Agree with heyabbott: This Kunkel character is kvetching that people just like him keep getting jobs just like his. Then quit, you jackass, and open it up for the folks you apparently feel are excluded. Or is that your approach only now that you've got yours?

    Besides, what is this guy talking about? If two-thirds of the students are female, then they're already "in the pipeline" in big numbers. Or shouldn't journalism instructors and deans actually have real-world experience as journalists?

    As for that working "harder and smarter" blather, if that is what they are teaching at Merrill, then by all means replace Kunkel right away. With a woman. With a minority. With a potted plant. Anything that won't preach the "harder and smarter" corporate nonsense.

    That's reserved for the exclusive use of publishers and editors-in-chief.
