Diversity Essay Winners Not Diverse

I'll start this off with the disclaimer that I'm not disparaging the kids who wrote these essays. Watching the local news last night, I saw a story on the winners of the James Rice Memorial Essay Contest, an essay contest about diversity. I noticed that just about everyone in the room was white. I chuckled a little.

But after seeing this article in the D&C on this it struck me that not only were the winner & semi-finalists white, but females from Webster. Talk about irony.
