I read the first bit of it and she remarks that "only about 10%" of Princeton's students were black. At that time (early 1980s) the percentage of college-age people who had high school diplomas who were black couldn't have been much more than 10% and may have been a bit under 10%...but she still makes it sound like a grave injustice is being committed.

I will give her credit for capitalizing the word White--it seems to be more common to capitalize Black and leave "white" in lower case.

Capitalizing either is incorrect. We are not talking about nations, or nationals of great nations. Even the formal names of the three main races are not capitalized in ordinary use.
