Skip to comments.Bias and bigotry in academia

"To have the same chance of gaining admission as a black student with a SAT score of 1100, a Hispanic student otherwise equally matched in background characteristics would have to have 1230, a white student a 1410, and an Asian student a 1550."

Clearly the SAT test is biased.
The best way to reduce racism would be to remove the “race identification” block on all applications. If you don’t know the race of an applicant, it makes it much harder to discriminate....IMHO
Obviously, it’s considered perfectly OK to discriminate against hard working intelligent achievers.
Say Pat, how about Spitzer getting your old job?
An even better way would involve hiding the applicants' name and sex from the admissions decider as well, as it is possible in many cases to discern a person's race and sex from this information. Have these decisions made strictly based on academic criteria without knowing at all what the names, races and sexes are of the applicants.

Of course it isn't. It is those who set the varying standards for the race/caste system that are biased. And they pass that bias on to all the students, because you must buy into that phoney mind-set: "All animals are equal in unequal ways." New-speak or double-think? It's not new, because hypocrisy is as old as civiization, probably a bit older.
This article at last explains the phenomenon of BHO. He probably got extra credit for being able to sign his own name. Even though we can't be sure just what his real name is.
We now live in a color coded anti-white male feminized society that has been rubber stamped by the Supreme Disappointment. A Constitution not followed is worse than no Constitution at all. This state of affairs breeds contempt for the government in the intelligent, and a sentimental belief in the phony protections it was supposed to have in the weak minded. As such, the Constitution now provides a fig leaf for the naked aggression of the socialist statist agenda.
Thanks Pat, we all know the marxists scoured the web in search of racism... thanks for phoning it in.
They will scream racist in 5, 4, 3, 2...
(We all know it doesn’t matter whether it’s true or not)
And they said that civil rights policy was supposed to “level the playing field.”
CWII in 5, 4, 3...
If a person’s head tilts to the Left, then a “level” playing field would also tilt to the Left.
Harvard will lose its “prestige” in a few years.
Clearly it will have to “adjust” its grading system to accomodate those who got in with lower test scores.
Perhaps they will do away with grades altogether, or, since it is such a “progressive thinking” institution, they will take a few points from those who do well and give them to the partiers and less studious.
Looking for the exit. Unfortunately, the exit door will be blocked and eventually we'll have to physically fight our way out. Some things never change. Truth be told, I would actually prefer a desperate fight to the bitter end with "those people", crave it.
I wish that were true. The problem is that Harvard has a large amount of class valedictorians entering its freshman class every year from the top private and public schools in the country. Yes, Harvard does admit some minority students with lesser credentials who are regulated to African American studies and other p.c. type non-rigorous majors. But the core major studies are populated with the cream of the crop and the cream keeps beating down the doors to get in.
Harvard didn't change its standards they just added a couple of wings to place the people who don't belong there.
Simple, just claim you are black. It worked for Mr. Skittles.
I hope and pray that we do not see fighting... it is not something anyone wants to go through... but if it starts... I’ll stand beside you and other patriots. I have been preparing for years.
