    Good point, but look at it from the other side. Lotsa dough buys good enough grades to get into the IVY's inner sanctums too.

    And the people who get perfect scores on the SAT but still get rejected are also victims of scoreism. And people who get rejected even though they have many phenomenal extra-curricular activities are victims of activityism. But the people who are children of politicians or Harvard graduates never seem to complain because they always get preferential treatment. Instead of focusing on that let's complain about bull****!

    I'll just explain; That a certain minority makes a smaller percentage in higher education institutions does not neglect the fact that setting lower standards for members of this minority is discrimination and is wrong.

    I think a black person with the same GPA as you worked harder, on average.

    Why? Do blacks have different brains than whites?
