I’m not sure if I’ve posted this before, but with the recent Supreme Court decision on Affirmative Action, I thought it was appropriate.
Why is it okay to base entrance into colleges based on race but not entrance into the sports teams at those same colleges?
I get the point, that minorities are not getting into schools at the same rate that whites are, but that’s not because colleges are bigoted against minorities; hardly. It’s because minorities are arriving with lower scores on college entrance tests and lower high school GPAs.
For validation, look at the rates that Asian students are being accepted into colleges – higher even than whites. And it’s because they have higher test scores.
