No, it is not another attack on Oxford for successfully managing to keep the plebs out. This time, foot in mouth over a diversity newsletter
from our our beloved So-Called BBC:
Oxford University has apologised for saying that avoiding eye contact could be "everyday racism" after it was accused of discriminating against autistic people.
The claim was included in a list of "racial micro-aggressions" in an equality and diversity unit newsletter.
But the university was criticised for being "insensitive" to autistic people who can struggle making eye contact.
It said it had made a mistake and not taken disabilities into account.
The university originally said "racial micro-aggressions" might include: "Not making eye contact or speaking directly to people."
It described the behaviours as "subtle, everyday racism" which can be alienating.
i feel they just need to realise that this is one of the things they are just not very good at and just rise above it.
