Affirmative Action Failure: Please Explain By Brian Simpson
We are told that race does not exist, unless you are White, which does not exist, being a social construct, unless you protest, and then you are a “White supremacist’:
Why, Jared Taylor over at American Renaissance, holds that East Asians are superior to Whites (based on a few IQ studies, which we have refuted at this site), as Goad puts it, which makes the magazine a bit useless (it should be defending East Asians and letting inferiors like his kind meet their fate). But, Jared, for all of his infinite qualifications and moderation of his site, gets treated by the System, just like the radicals he desperately tries to differentiate himself from, as a “white supremacist”! Gasp! As Jim Goad would say, in his journalistic street lingo, “that plain sucks.” Yeah, it sure does, Jared.
Back to reality, turning to the real news site, The New York Times, there is this article: “Even With Affirmative Action, Blacks and Hispanics Are More Underrepresented at Top Colleges Than 35 Years Ago”: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/08/24/us/affirmative-action.html Here is the basics of this:
“Even after decades of affirmative action, black and Hispanic students are more underrepresented at the nation’s top colleges and universities than they were 35 years ago, according to a New York Times analysis.
The share of black freshmen at elite schools is virtually unchanged since 1980. Black students are just 6 percent of freshmen but 15 percent of college-age Americans…
More Hispanics are attending elite schools, but the increase has not kept up with the huge growth of young Hispanics in the United States, so the gap between students and the college-age population has widened.
The Times analysis includes 100 schools ranging from public flagship universities to the Ivy League. For both blacks and Hispanics, the trend extends back to at least 1980, the earliest year that fall enrollment data was available from the National Center for Education Statistics.
Blacks and Hispanics have gained ground at less selective colleges and universities but not at the highly selective institutions, said Terry Hartle, a senior vice president at the American Council on Education, which represents more than 1,700 colleges and universities.”
So, does this show that affirmative action is a failure? Of course not. The liberal establishment always have some sociological BS to fall back on. Society is “racist” because whites exist; Black and Hispanic schools have less quality teachers (because of “racism,” because White exist) and so on. Nothing could ever convince a liberal otherwise; otherwise they would not be a liberal!
