    Default Punished for ethnicity

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/asian-am...nation-n578666

    "Citing figures from the Education Department, the groups also argue that Asian-American undergraduate enrollment at Brown and Yale has remained flat between 1995 and 2014. While noting an increase in Asian-American students for Dartmouth from 1995 to 2004, the complaint says that those numbers leveled off over the last 10 years. This data shows that “de-facto racial quotas have been imposed on Asian Americans” at these three schools, the complaint alleges.

    The coalition, which includes local and national organizations from across the country, is asking the departments of Education and Justice to bar or strictly limit Yale, Dartmouth, and Brown from allegedly using race in admissions decisions, curb what it calls subjective components in evaluating applications, and disclose qualifications of their applicant pools."

    Isn't it about time college application review process be completely severed from race? Who actually supports the discrimination based on race? Answer - the Democratic Party.

    Thankfully in one of the few positive pieces of news out of the Trump Administration - it looks like something may be done.

    https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/01/u...versities.html

    "WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is preparing to redirect resources of the Justice Department’s civil rights division toward investigating and suing universities over affirmative action admissions policies deemed to discriminate against white applicants, according to a document obtained by The New York Times.

    The document, an internal announcement to the civil rights division, seeks current lawyers interested in working for a new project on “investigations and possible litigation related to intentional race-based discrimination in college and university admissions.”"

    Um, the discrimination is against Asian-Americans, while Trump is preparing to act to help white applicants. According to your own links...

    Race based admission hurt Asian Americans.

    Getting rid of race based admissions (something that may occur depending on how things go with the justice dept) will therefore help Asians.

    That being said *regardless* of who it hurts or helps we should all be able to agree that race based discrimination is wrong. Do you agree?

    I find it odd that you and Trumpists are so incensed about the one area where mediocre white people have a small disadvantage while blatantly ignoring the countless areas where non-white people are disadvantaged. Kind of hard to take you seriously when you whine about Joe White having to go a slightly worse college, but think African Americans should be thankful they're not being murdered by the police in even larger numbers.

    It's not the cops fault that most murderers are African Americans, something you time and again forget. Yet seek to lump your hard on for attacking the Police into every single thread.

    Right, Rand. Because a disproportionate number of group N do X, it's ok to shoot indiscriminately at everyone in group N. You realize that black murderers are a tiny proportion of black men, right?

    Incidentally, the group responsible for the most murders of cops are white militia groups.

    If every black person was getting shot at there'd be way more getting shot.
