    Let's face it, you're just trying to claim blacks harm the university system. And you do so very dishonestly. Let's look at some of the obvious ways that your claim of blacks harming society are false:


    1. The standards are met, not lowered.
    2. Whites make up the majority of the bottom 20%, but you only claim the blacks are lowering standards.
    3. Diversity is valuable to a university, it increases the quality of the product.
    4. Addressing systemic privilege is valuable to a university, it provides opportunities for those held back by systemic privilege.
    5. Things other than gpa and sat establish the creds of an applicant.


    So, let's stop singling out blacks from among the bottom 20% and let's stop pretending that meeting the standards is lowering the standards.
    I merely said they had lower objective standards

    nothing more noting less and you cannot get around your silly claim that accepting B students with lower boards ahead of A students with higher boards does not LOWER standards.

    Diversity is not an objective value btw

    the fact is=blacks get into schools with lower scores than whites. they have lower admission standards

    and that is not subject to any dispute

    later

    I should have specified. Do you believe Mia Love and Tim Scott could have benefited from affirmative action in their academic careers?

    Your "objective" standards are not. Systemic privilege exists, and that skews the scores of minorities.

    Anyway, why do you only specify blacks among the bottom 20% of acceptances when they are a small minority of it? Shouldn't we be talking about how whites "lower" the standards, since they are the majority of the bottom 20%?

    Is this the "tests are too white" argument?

    That only counts if one is a democrat.

    How often have we heard that Obama is merely a product of AA. But we sure don't hear that about republican blacks.

    It's the "systemic privilege exists" argument.

    That (bolded above) must explain the constant push for left/right, liberal/conservative diversity at these fine institutions - proven to be so by the make-up of their own staff. Let us not judge (diversity?) by the content of one's character but by the color of their skin.

    You have no idea how diversity is valuable to a university and its students, do you.

    Do you not understand what systemic privilege means, or do you deny the existence of it.
