Editorial: College admissions are a proper mess

Jun 30, 2013 Full story: Whittier Daily News

That affirmative action in college admissions is a complex subject is perhaps best indicated by the fact that all sides are taking the Supreme Court's ruling on the issue last week as a victory for their viewpoint.

"Some studies focused on SAT scores alone show that Asian applicants "need" scores 125 points higher than white students for admission to the country's top-ranked schools."

Are you kidding me? This entire topic is worthy of a lengthy rant and a lengthy, pissed off rant I will give. It's all in the name of diversity and I for one don't care two shits about evening out college racial demographics or any other silly facet considered by the admission officers. FFS, if they would simply allow high school students with higher academic credentials to have more of a say in what college they choose to attend, regardless of their race, the world would be a much better place. Excellence in scholarly subjects is what colleges should be paying their undivided attention to, not some numbers of college applicants being of this ethnicity or that one; gotta improve this god-damned place we dwell in and we're obviously less likely to make any progress when all the smarter kids aren't being favored. So...

Why let some black, Latino, or white person with a significantly lower SAT score steal a spot when there's a more qualified person ready for the job?

Excuse my language, but I've got to say, I fucking hate these race-conscious admissions. Screw them all. If every top college in the nation was overrun by Asians, so what? It's plainly an indicator that we work hard and deserve to do as we please, going to whatever college we like if possible and not being troubled with annoying racial preferences. There's a sad future ahead with the way things are now. How upsetting. Let me just inform everybody of a little something here:

Asians have the capability to build efficient bridges that'll keep you safe at all times instead of ones with a chance of breaking down, sending you flying towards your unfortunate death merely because some ridiculous college admissions officer chose a less qualified person who wasn't up to the task to join their college years earlier. It's unquestionably a life or death matter.

On a happy note, drive safe and hope with all your heart that doesn't happen! Have a nice day and don't worry too much about bridges.:)

YET MORE evidence that fat, ignorant, dumpy, lazy white chicks can't compete on a level playing field with Asian-American women.
Asian-American women score higher, get better grades, have higher IQs, work harder, earn more, etc.
If it weren't for racial "affirmative action" half of the white chicks admitted to universities would be flipping burgers and 90% of Latinas would join their mamas in the "service industry" cleaning motel toilets.
As much as I appreciate the extensive amount of adoration you have for Asian women, well, you've got to chill out. White chicks are cool. Latinas are cool. Doesn't quite matter what a person's race is when you trip over your own feet, falling for them. Just simply love every kind of woman and all will be fine and dandy. Peace.
