Supreme Court Up Holds Racism

Recommended Posts

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.

The report, released Monday, found that 23.5 percent of black households had Internet access in August. While this was up from 11.2 percent in the 1999 survey, it still lagged behind the rate for white households of 46.1 percent... The percentage of Hispanic households with Internet access stood at 23.6

 

By state, Utah ranked No. 1 in computer ownership with 66.1 percent of households owning a computer followed by Alaska at 64.8 percent of households. States with the lowest percentage of computer homes were Mississippi at 37.2 percent and Arkansas at 37.3 percent.

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?

yes, fuck that...

 

I would like to make the following points:

 

the above situation is wack, and is where this policy doesnt work out how it was (suposedly) intended.

 

also, these 'unrepresented minorites' including primarily black and latinos wouldnt have a problem getting in to these types of school if they weren't neglected, and educated right in the first place. Funding in the city sucks because white people moved out of major cites, yet still control it. If this problem didnt exist neither would this affirmative action bullshit, because it wouldnt be needed. In this situation the 'rich white man' if you will, is kind of admitting, " well we fucked up before, so now we are going to try to make up fo it by letting you people into our schools"

 

If highschool, actually meant something in the first place you wouldnt need college to get a good job. College should be a place where you study your craft in order to master it, not career training.

 

but its not like people would actually try to fix a problem the right way now would they, that makes all too much sense.

heh. White people call this "racism"?

 

Maybe if anything if race was the ONLY factor it would be discrimination but not racism.

 

It just means they can take into consideration the fact that someone is a minority.

 

It usually works on a point system.

 

perfect SAT's - 10 points

minority - 10 points

"urban" - 10 points

athletic ability - 5 points

parents went to the university 20 points

 

The more points you have the better your chances of getting in there.

 

But trying to pull that I'm not getting in because some underqualified black kid from Harlem is "getting in cause he's black" is bullshit.

You should be complaining about the kids that get in cause their parents went to college there.

I didn't get into U of M Law. And I'm white.

 

Both true statements, yet I don't believe the second caused the first.
