    Supreme Court Up Holds Racism

    Discussion started by Kettiecat - Jun 24, 2003

    Schools can consider race in admissions


    The U.S. Supreme Court today ruled that universities can consider an applicant's race to achieve a diverse student body.

    The court ruled 5-4 to uphold the U-M Law School's admissions policy, giving universities permission to continue affirmative action programs.

    But struck down the University of Michigan's controversial undergraduate point system that gave all underrepresented minorities a 20-point advantage on a 150-point scale. ----so you about 15% of the reason some of my fellow class mates got in is because they had dark skin.... hey I tan in the summer and people think I'm mexican...


    "victory for higher education and civil rights leaders who argued they needed the policies to ensure integrated campuses"---- cause you know black people must be dumb and can't get in unless we give them some help




    ugh I have to go to work and don't have time to fully develop this.

    Maybe this bugs me more than most because I go to U of M...


    So you have undergrads applying into law school. They have lived in the same community for at least the last four years. they have sat in the same classes, with the same profs, had the same home work, the same access to things like internet and a library. They were equal. BUT when they apply to law school the minorities get a boost because... they are disadvantaged....FUCK that.

    take all the time you need, but you won't be able to develop anything coherent with the start you have going for yourself.

    i don't even have the energy for the all too typical 12oz oppressed white kid syndrome, so i'll let your "i get tan in the summer" comment speak for the true depth of this thread.

    if you can't get into the law school maybe you can get into the U of M young republicans club?
