Title: The exclusion of African Americans from the US accounting faculty establishment

Authors: Bruce Committe

Addresses: USA

Abstract: The Accounting Faculty Establishment (TAFE) excludes African Americans because the Caucasian majority of TAFE members want conformity, not diversity, in its ranks. TAFE seeks new members who are just like existing TAFE members in their thinking and otherwise. The cause of this situation is the lack of a liberal undergraduate and liberal graduate education by most TAFE members whose education is mostly technical in its nature.

Keywords: African Americans; diversity; conformity; faculty exclusion; ideology; establishment; discrimination; unlawful; auditing; human capital; USA; United Sates; Africa; higher education; accounting education.
