    lol ok, keep beating this drum of the poor white man getting screwed out of elite colleges by the rich black man. I'm sure in its class of 2400, you might find 1-2 who fit the mold

    So 1/10,000 seems about right
    Elite private schools having a 1/10,000 acceptance rate makes sense mate. That's why they're called elite private schools.

    I feel universities should accept students based on their intellectual abilities, not on the basis of the colour of their skin. Too bad you disagree.

    No. You're repeating a false narrative about affirmative action.

    Is the "affirmative action" you support based on race or not?

    Yes, that is why I know you are in favour of race-based selection criteria for university admissions, meaning that you favour racial discrimination.

    So you deny that the affirmative action you support is based on race?

    You can have those stats and still not get in. That's the point. Harvard and other elite universities have always admitted based on "diversity". They can deny you because they needed some left handed violinists. They can deny you because they needed someone who's an aspiring astronaut. They will definitely deny you if a member of the Bush or Clinton Dynasty is an applicant and they have average grades and no extracurricular activities. As many people have already stated...

    Legacy and Politicians are the ones who get the most benefits from "unofficial" affirmative action. But the guys keep on harping and pissing and moaning about race, which has very little to do with why someone does or doesn't get into an Ivy. The race baiters increasingly look foolish as the thread continues.
