    ok stick with that argument
    So, do we lower the standards for the whites that get in at the lower end?

    Standards are not lowered when they are met. End of story.

    The intent of the NAACP is to lobby for black causes and Democrats are more receptive than Republicans. You may not like it...but Blacks are allowed to organize in this country

    I think what you are saying is that black leaders are better served by Democrat politicians than Republican ones

    but you miss the point-in a competitive environment, there are two components

    objective qualifications and the subjective standard. you ignore the second part which holds that if there is one job or seat, the MOST qualified person for that seat should get it

    is the 15th fastest sprinter in the USA deserving of one of three positions on the Olympic team instead of the three fastest runners?

    that is what you are arguing and its what blacks who want affirmative action want

    Why isn't your argument that the bottom 20% of acceptances are lowering the standards? Why specify just the blacks of that group?

    nice dodge-is the 15th fastest sprinter more qualified to get one of the three olympic spots over men with faster times

    is a black with a 3.2 average and a 85th percentile LSAT score more qualified for the last seat at Michigan Law school over 400 whites with 3.7 GPAs and 98th percentile LSAT scores?

    does a school that has an average successful applicant of 3.2 and an 85th LSAT percentile have lower standards compared to one where the average successful applicant has a 3.7 GPA and a 98th percentile score?

    of course they do-keeping their flock dependent on government and blaming black failures on "racism" gives them more power

    and back in the day of the 800 LSAT score, 130 points on the LSAT meaning a black with a 645 was treated the same as someone like me who had a 785 score

    those are lowered standards.
    So what you're saying is that there is a possibility that Tim Scott and Mia Love are the products of affirmative action?

    There will always be acceptances at the lower end of standards. Claiming that people let in at the lower end of standards are lowering the standards is dishonest. The standard is not lowered, it is met.

    And, while we're looking at this honestly, let's remember that there are qualifications other than gpa and sat which add to those.
