No, there’s no discrimination.

It’s just a fact that if you’re Asian, you have to be a straight-A student with genius-level test scores, class president, captain of the football team, and an Eagle Scout to get in.

If you’re Black, on the other hand, you can be a congenital idiot, convicted felon, drug abusing flunk-out with abysmal test scores, and you’re in.

But, no, there’s no discrimination.

Meanwhile, the big thinking heavy hitters on the various admissions committees never pause to think how this set of circumstances - of which everyone with as much as two gray cells to rub together is aware - debases the value of a Black diploma.

But, then, it hardly matters, becuse the same set of biases are evident in hiring and promotion, as well.

Having "Eagle Scout" on your academic resume would be an automatic disqualification for any Ivy League slot. The Scouts are considered a homophobic hate group, full of extreme right-wing teabaggers by the admissions staff.
