  • "[Harvard] considers race only as one of many factors in deciding ..."

    As far as I'm concerned, race should be NONE of the factors.

    From the same article:

    "... Harvard has not seriously considered alternative, race-neutral approaches to admissions."

    And,

    "... the Supreme Court’s most recent ruling on affirmative action, the Court held that college can consider race as one factor in admissions ..."

    It'll be interesting to see how this plays out.

    Yep, race shouldn't be a factor.

    But, Harvard is over run by C-Marxists.

    Their agenda isn't to help minorities, it's to hurt whites.

    God I'm glad the right has the SC for the next 50 years.

      Asians have a law suit for discrimination.

      It's obvious.

      Some black person of color only needs 300 pts less than an asian.

      Maybe 150 pts less than a white person.

      High cheekbones gets you tenure.

        Not caring what color anyone is? As any lib can tell you, that's like the most racist thing you can do! Even worse than having Black friends!

          The lawsuit contends that Asians are held to a higher standard to be considered for admission. So it's a test to exclude, based on ethnicity.

            C-Marxists fear Asians.

            Way too smart, in general.

              Howdy folks. I've thought a lot about the lawsuit and of course weigh arguments on both sides. First, I'm compelled to toss in a factoid from a friend who has worked in the Yale admissions office for a few years. He reports that if they were to go just based on SAT scores, an incoming class would be something like 80% Asian; the white legacy students who get in not because of their performance but because the schools need their parents to write large checks would cover the next 15% as they do currently; and then there would be 5% room left for everyone else. Again, that's if they went just based on entrance exam scores. Surely you folks recognize a high schooler features more evidence of proclivity to be an important, productive, unique contributor to their college class than just their standardized test scores. Hence, Harvard's defense includes discussion of "personal score." I'm positive my involvement with the guitar and church, as well as my personal essays and letters of recommendation, helped me get into my school. Moving along though...

              Here's my big question for the conservatives: Why do you think people who live in smaller-population states should have more electoral votes per person? Why do you think people in small-pop states should have more senators per person? I think that if you consider why our government gives greater weight to the voices of people who are living less common lifestyles (as there are fewer people living rural lifestyles than urban), then you might glean some insight about why institutions give more weight to applicants (with scores in a certain range) who've had the less common life experiences.

                Because we are a union of states, each with its own laws, and the states electoral votes are proportional to their population. Not sure how that's an analogue for the racial preferences dems always champion.

                But what's the rationale of denying fruits of the hard work and achievement of Asian students? Asian privilege? Are are we just saying that that the good hair comes with giant brains that give them an unfair advantage?

                  Slight correction:

                  The electoral votes are not in proportion. The reason for this is that the HoR Population was capped in order to keep it from growing into an unmanageable size. Some time in the past year (I think) I posted a thread and an article discussing this very point. Yet it remains that the '2 Senators per State' rule has never been any different. What changed in their regard is the manner in which they are elected.

                  PS: If anyone can find my earlier thread, I have been searching for it in vain for a while and I'd like to revisit it since the EC is still a 'Hot Topic' and I can't find the cited article.

                      Is there a race that hasn't accused another of racism? It's like an epidemic of accusers trying to find ANYTHING to whine & complain about. It's become a world of poor pitiful persecuted people.
