Oh wait, I may know!... Could it be because I AUTHORED THE HYPOTHETICAL SCENARIO!!!!
No, I am talking about two kids, one black, one white, equal academic qualifications, vastly different socioeconomic backgrounds. They are both honor students with good grades and are applying to the same university. However, the upper middle-class black kid gets a bump on his application for being black, while the welfare-class white kids gets nothing. The bump makes all the difference as to who gets admitted and who does not.The only place where this situation would happen is in the bottom rung of the class. You're talking about a kid who may or may not have gotten into college, especially in your scenario where they have equal grades. I'd like to hear your case for why they would take the white kid in your scenario. Remember, grades and SATs are equal.
Again I ask you, is this not morally obscene?
