It is certainly frustrating. My son has not been accepted into medical school even though all his “numbers” indicate he should have been easily accepted.
I read an article which broke down the acceptance rates for med school and even though he is higher/better qualified based on GPA, the MCAT and such, his race and gender make it more difficult to get in. He has no “hook” for extra points.
It is systematic discrimination, but until the beneficiaries of affirmative action are the ones to decry it, it will remain in place.
This is a very hard subject for me because I grew up in a very racist town and know the effects it had on good people, both black and white.
I am just sad that there is such deep resentment making it nearly impossible to let go of past hurts and focus on each other as individuals rather than as a collective.

Legalized discrimination against whites will ensure the racial (and gender) animosity goes on infinitely; at this point I can’t take anyone who can “check a box” seriously, and couldn’t care less what happens to them - they’re allowed to have organizations to cope with their crises (real or imagined).
