    Their 'selection' proves thorough leftist corruption of Rhodes scholarships for decades for me.

    If you need any more evidence:

    Rhodes Scholarship Becomes Laughingstock After Embracing the Left’s “Woke Culture”
    https://www.revolver.news/2020/12/rhodes-scholarship-becomes-farce/

    "The Scholar noted that under the old system even if a committee wanted to choose an under-qualified candidate for the sake of “diversity,” they tended to only make one such pick among the four winners. Under the new system, with 16 regional committees, there is still a tendency to make at least one “diverse” pick, but now such winners comprise half of all selections rather than just one fourth.

    The new selection process encourages left-wing activism over real achievement in another way, the Scholar said.

    “The old system involved up to 500 people, mostly older Rhodes Scholars, interviewing across the two levels,” she said. “Now the system involves perhaps 100 or 120 people, so it’s much easier to stack the entire process completely with liberals. And that’s definitely what the US Secretary who runs it wants to do.”

    And thus the process has resulted in the absurdity seen today, where an army of affirmative action choices and grievance politics specialists are presented as the best and brightest America has to offer."
