I guess it’s Trump’s fault
The New York Times revealed (a leak) that the Trump Department of Justice was looking into the possibility of taking action against certain universities and colleges which discriminated against white students in their admissions policies.
This set off a chain reaction of hand wringing that the Trump Administration was targeting Affirmative Action.
CNN said “white grievance”
is Trump’s fallback position. When things get rough, stir up the bitter white folk.
The Washington Post put it in the most stark terms: “White College Students Think They Face More Discrimination Than Blacks.” Seriously. Here
At the same time, Harvard University, of all places, seemed to confirm the general thrust of the reported interest the DOJ might have in looking at discrimination against whites.
Victory! For somebody.
Considering the fact that white people are still a huge majority in this country the Harvard result seems to suggest that either white students no longer apply to Harvard, or Harvard is employing an admission system that favors minority population non-whites over majority population whites.
Personally, I’d like the DOJ to look into what’s taught in the classes, all that stuff about white privliege, and how white people are the scourge of the planet.
If I were still a college student I think I’d hate sitting through all that, same as a black student would feel if the lecture was all about how bad black people are and were.
Just as a postscript: more evidence emerged this week of what it was like on the campus of Evergreen College in Washington when the college social justice warriors held a hate-whitey day. A white (female) college professor described being trailed by social justice protesters demanding she obey their orders to leave campus because she is white. They would not listen to her. All they wanted was her to follow orders that white people vacate the campus.
Is it too much to ask that people not be judged by the color of their skin? I thought that was a rule around here.
