This will always be the case, since blacks and hispanics generally (not always) score significantly lower on basic IQ tests than whites and asians. Occasionally, one may run across a bright black person, or a dull asian, but it's a social rarity when the entire population is taken into account. Enticing blacks and hispanics to attend college as if they are intellectual peers of whites and asians is a tremendous waste of money and resources.

There is no fiscal or teaching strategy to get around it:
