Posted on 09/14/2011 5:42:44 PM PDT by Altura Ct.
Two studies released today by the Center for Equal Opportunity reveal severe discrimination based on race and ethnicity in undergraduate and law school admissions at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, with African Americans and Latinos given preference over whites and Asians.
The studies are based on data supplied by the schools themselves, some of which the university had refused to turn over until a lawsuit was filed by CEO and successfully taken all the way to the state supreme court. The studies were prepared by Dr. Althea Nagai, a research fellow at CEO, and can be viewed on the organizations website, www.ceousa.org.
CEO president Roger Clegg will answer questions about the studies when they are formally released at a press conference today at 11:00 a.m. at the DoubleTree hotel in Madison525 W. Johnson St.
The odds ratio favoring African Americans and Hispanics over whites was 576-to-1 and 504-to-1, respectively, using the SAT and class rank while controlling for other factors. Thus, the median composite SAT score for black admittees was 150 points lower than for whites and Asians, and the Latino median SAT score was 100 points lower. Using the ACT, the odds ratios climbed to 1330-to-1 and 1494-to-1, respectively, for African Americans and Hispanics over whites.
For law school admissions, the racial discrimination found was also severe, with the weight given to ethnicity much greater than given to, for example, Wisconsin residency. Thus, an out-of-state black applicant with grades and LSAT scores at the median for that group would have had a 7 out 10 chance of admission and an out-of-state Hispanic a 1 out of 3 chancebut an in-state Asian with those grades and scores had a 1 out of 6 chance and an in-state white only a 1 out of 10 chance.
CEO chairman Linda Chavez noted: This is the most severe undergraduate admissions discrimination that CEO has ever found in the dozens of studies it has published over the last 15 years. Chavez also noted: The studies show that literally hundreds of students applying as undergrads or to the law school are rejected in favor of students with lower test scores and grades, and the reason is that they have the wrong skin color or their parents came from the wrong countries.
Roger Clegg added: The latest census figures have dramatically underscored that America is increasingly multiethnic and multiracial. In such country, is simply untenable for our institutionsincluding public universitiesto engage in politically correct but divisive and unfair discrimination.
The Center for Equal Opportunity recently joined an amicus brief challenging the use of racial preferences at the University of Texas, in a case for which review by the U.S. Supreme Court will be sought this week.
Isn’t that where Professor leftie Rogers and all those extremists professors hang out?
Being white and male is bad these days. The ‘correction’ will backfire of course. Look out when that occurs.
They might want to look into Harvard Law.
We know of one idiot grad who shouldn’t have qualified for janitor.
I heard on the radio a couple of weeks ago that there are now more “latinos” on American “college” campii these days than there are crackers.
Who's discriminated against?
Why are they such patsies?
So much for ‘equality.’
Madistan hates white people.
It's time to sue. Then sue again, then sue again...
Sounds like a class action lawsuit to me. Its how a progressive would handle it. Landmark Legal and Thomas Moore Society should get in first and generate some big fees for additional assaults on progressive institutions.

My cousin is on her 3rd year at Yale. Believe it or not, one of her “perfessors” still spells definitely’ with an A’. And the teaching assistant is some black dude who talks in ebonics. No one could understand him and no one could understand how this jackass got to be a teaching assistant.
They all take Federal monies...in one way or another.
I am a bit confused though....On one hand you say Harvard can do what they want, as they are "private"....on the other you "guarantee"..that if Harvard "discriminated against blacks and Hispanics, that they would be cut off the Federal Gravy Train."
Can you shed some light?
If you take federal money, you must bow to the federal rules.
Harvard could do what it wants because it doesn’t need those federal dollars, but that wouldn’t be at all politically correct, would it.
After Lawrence Summers gave that commencement address, saying that women had not made many real contributions to science and mathematics, the women at Harvard went nuts, fired Summers, and re-wrote a whole lot of the curriculum to favor women, feminizing the sciences by making it relate more to every day life and the environment. In other words, they dumbed down the science courses in order to feminize them.
Ridiculous; isn’t it something - you can have Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, Taiwanese, Koren and other Asian families come to America where dad barely speaks English. The kids somehow learn English and score at the top half of their classes and qualify to go to prestigious colleges. Same deal with most Indian families.
How do they do that, while other groups can only get in to a big college based on racial quotas?
Check out the racist college scholarships that Bill and Melinda Gates dole out. Only minorities, if you are white you are not eligible.
They are called Gate Foundation Millennium Scholarships
I earned a Masters degree from the University of Wisconsin, Madison nearly 30 years ago, and this does not surprise me one bit.
So, is this something to report to AttackWatch?
She... served as Chancellor of the University of WisconsinMadison. Under her chancellorship and with her support, the University adopted a broad speech code subjecting students to disciplinary action for communications that were perceived as hate speech. That speech code was later found unconstitutional by a federal judge. Also while chancellor, Shalala supported passage of a revised faculty speech code broadly restricting "harmful" speech in both "noninstructional" and "instructional" settings. The faculty speech code was abolished ten years later, after a number of professors were investigated for alleged or suspected violations.
Harvard STILL wants those bucks...and actually I think they NEED those bucks nowadays.
Making sure that they fail the Bar exam..or the Bar exam scores will have to be lowered to make them pass.
Actually the 40 year war against White males has been expanded...it includes all Whites now.
If you're not hostile to Whites at every opportunity, you're not cool.
I'm cool because I have a gun in my pocket ever where I go.
Actually it would be interesting to look at hiring and promotion statistics for the federal government over the past two years.
Let’s face it folks...It’s MADISTAN, WI, the most communist, liberal state capitol city in the nation.
PLEASE do not judge all of Wisconsin by “MADISTAN”
Furthermore, what isn't mentioned, is that graduates of law schools in Wi (and there are only 2) are automatically admitted to the Wisconsin Bar -- no exam required.
This may mean that there are incompetent lawyer running around here. Certainy, one of them worked for us as an assembler. He'd actually been disbarred and was suing to get his license back. He'd lied on his application because we'd never have hired a lawyer to do electronic assembly.
One day he showed up at work with a magnetic sign on his aging car billing himself as an attorney. He managed to lose the case for one of our other employees who was involved in a child custody case, but billed him for big $$$. TG neither of them work for us anymore.
We just got a letter about the "attorney" who is trying to get a job in TX now. We have to be very careful about how we respond because he turned us into OSHA after he left us before.
Nah, Harvard has such huge private endowment that the federal dollars don’t mean much. What the federal dollars do is allow them to charge tuition on a rolling scale according to family income and background. A student whose parents make less than $60,000 and didn’t graduate from college, can go to Harvard for something like $13,000. That’s what the federal dollars pay for and of course the prestige of any grant work, like the Arsenic in the Water study (which completely phony).
So we can expect the Republican state legislature and governor to address this with legislation?
I have often wondered; when will the lawsuits start on this issue?
Almost every major societal institution and all the ruling authorities in America are anti-White. I'm just waiting for the majority of Whites to finally wake up to this fact and do something about it.
