Diversity and Equality are inherently contradictory. The racism of the university diversity champions is just one obvious example.
Her primer on college admissions begins with the basics: application deadlines, the relative virtues of the SAT versus the ACT and how many Advanced Placement tests to take. Then she eases into a potentially incendiary topic — one that many counselors like her have learned they cannot avoid.
“Let’s talk about Asians,” she says.
Lee’s next slide shows three columns of numbers from a Princeton University study that tried to measure how race and ethnicity affect admissions by using SAT scores as a benchmark. It uses the term “bonus” to describe how many extra SAT points an applicant’s race is worth. She points to the first column.
African Americans received a “bonus” of 230 points, Lee says.
She points to the second column.
“Hispanics received a bonus of 185 points.”
The last column draws gasps.
Asian Americans, Lee says, are penalized by 50 points — in other words, they had to do that much better to win admission.
So blacks are getting a 280-point SAT bonus. Because they’re equal to Asians, who obviously are culturally advantaged in white institutions. Although, what exactly is the benefit to whites to have Asians going to their top universities instead of whites?
Maybe the New Americans will be nice and whites will get their own reservations and casinos too. I have no doubt that there were more than a few of my people back in the day saying, “hey, I’m sure we can get along just fine with these paleskins. There is plenty of land for everyone!”
Fortunately, that could never happen because Asians don’t outnumber Americans like Europeans outnumbered Native Americans… wait a minute!
