Campus diversity suffers under race-blind policies

There are 7 comments on the Star-Telegram.com story from Apr 21, 2012, titled Campus diversity suffers under race-blind policies. In it, Star-Telegram.com reports that:

Fifteen years ago, California voters were asked: Should colleges consider a student's race when they decide who gets in and who doesn't? With an emphatic "no," they made California the first state to ban the use of race and ethnicity in public university admissions, as well as hiring and contracting.

If only they could pass a law which commands nature to provide your average negro with an IQ over 85, eh?

So what? People should be admitted based on their actual qualifications, not to make a class more diverse or to please the PC police.

If you werent so wholly ignorant of the ongoing history of race and racism in America you would post such inanities. You see black folks start the race for "actual qualifications" waaaaay behind the starting line while while folks get a huge head start... black schools are underfunded and staffed by weaker teachers and worse facilities and texts and materials... students are immersed in a racist society that harms them both from the outside and they internalize white supremacy and at some level question their intellectual capacity vis a vis white folks... their parents are more likely to be poor and uneducated so they dont have any tutoring at home or hear SAT words etc... and there are many other issues, legitimate reasons your suggestion is inane (as you would expect since your a racist ignoramus) to treat white and black applicants as if they are equal when black students manifestly did not have an equal chance all day everyday at school for 12 years.
And stop using the phrase "politically correct", this is a nonsense mantra with no meaning that pieces of garbage like you bray whenever someone raises legitimate concerns about racism or sexism or homophobia or any of the realities of American life that you like to pretend dont exist or are insignificant
And understand that applicants with alumni arents get extra points as do student athletes so if these questionable nepotistic and athletic advantages are considered legitimate surely making an effort to correct for the deleterious effects of racism is legit...
