    I would certainly say that making a general statement about a group based on group average is lumping them together.
    Therefore, since the world has still/Much good, but much less good than ill,
    And while the sun and moon endure/Luck's a chance, but trouble's sure,
    I'd face it as a wise man would,/And train for ill and not for good.

    They're not going to win. The Supreme Court has already ruled that race can be used in the admissions process as it should be.

    And a rich black person from Malibu has probably faced more obstacles than a rich white person from Malibu. Fortunately for the former, race is taken in account. Fortunately for the poor white person in your example, economics is taken into account.

    It's telling to me that the most complained about admissions policy is the one that helps black people. Legacy admissions, donor admissions and other admissions based on factors other than merit which primarily benefit upper class white people are rarely challenged and never with the same intensity. People don't have a problem with non-merit-based admissions policies. They don't have a problem with policies that benefit certain races over others. They have a problem with black people.

    Probably? Yes. Should a random person be judged by what the average member of his race had to face though? Hell no. That's plain old racism and it's a shame that you believe in it.

    One would assume you aren't an English major. Perhaps you can find a translation program that suits you.
