#1 Let's not stop at college admissions. "Racial preferences" should be banned everywhere.

#3 Harvard's reply was the same as Governor Wallace's.

#4 Sotomayor's performance at the oral argument is going to be like something from The Exorcist.

#6 Given the level of indoctrination at almost all colleges now, we should be thankful they are rejecting at least some intelligent people from it.

#7 The college admissions mafia will easily avoid it. They've already thrown away objective data and standardized testing requirements.

Plus, every college-bound kid now has an A- or better average, so the admissions process is completely arbitrary and up to the admissions committees' political/financial whims.

"building the class,"
"ensuring a diverse learning environment,"
"promoting equity and inclusiveness,"
"recognizing achievement within the local context"

... and all their other BS. They're simply applying backfire quotas + optimizing for revenue now. They've made competitive college admissions into a complete joke.

#8 I was at CWRU when the iranians took our embassy personnel hostage. the iranian students at the school marched in solidarity with the "revolutionaries." We threw beer bottles at them. The cops laughed. Then the administration put all the iranians together in one dorm. "For their safety." The good old days of higher education.

#9 M,

What's CWRU like now? How woke has it become, relative to other top institutions? Asking for a friend

#10 I have no idea. I know it shrunk in undergrad enrollment after I graduated (1981) but I have not been back and get no alumni mailings from them at all. I have no reason to believe it's any different from the rest of the horde these days.

#11 Make no mistake. I'm glad I went there, had some very excellent profs, classmates and friends from outside the university community. If I hadn't already had a job lined up after graduation, I might have stayed in Ohio. Lot of good people there. OTOH, glad I went where I did and did what I did. And glad I left the Peeholes Dumbocrapic Rethuglic of PeeAye. Just wish I'd thought to do it sooner...

#12 Thx. We all need to anticipate & start making plans for how we'll manage in the coming (cultural, maybe economic also) Great Separation

#13 Affirmative Action is racist. Stop it.

Some might argue it was necessary to counter the racism suffered by blacks. But two wrongs don't make a right, they only make two wrongs. Can't argue with equal rights and equal opportunity. Can't go any further than that.
