But not necessarily the applicant. So because some one's daddy did well at Yale, Yale should automatically accept the son?
And affirmative action is not an automatic admission of inferiority of the individual but an inequity in opportunities.
This is exactly right: Colleges take into account as minor factors where a person is from, what religion they practice, what school they went to, legacy relationships with the school.

It's called "diversity," and that doesn't just mean race.

Yet the Tea Baggers - who when they're on script deny being racists - focus only on affirmative action when it's race based.

On the positive side, they haven't yet claimed that too many Asians are dominating institutions of higher learning and thus that white people should be given extra consideration in admissions. Yet....

LMAO...this is a typical reply of an unAmerican progressive that doesn't have an answer or rebuttle. Laughable and still typical.

Bwaaaa ha ha ha

You seem to be another liberal troll, spewing predigested OPINION that is not based on fact or reality.

Repubs and even tea party people don't believe in any shape or form what you've typed on this thread....nice try though. They don't believe that 'white people should be given extra consideration'.....they just believe that NO ONE should be given extra consideration over another.

Hey lying filth, you dun fergit the content of ma post.

I said colleges take into account in a minor way many non academic performance traits in admission - income, geography, legacy, extra curricular, religion.

The fact is you Tea Baggers _only_ complain about taking race into account in admissions. Why not the other traits colleges consider in admissions?

And these boards at topix are littered with overtly racist posts from Tea Baggers, most often likening one Obama or other to an animal of some sort. Everyone reads those posts. Everyone knows it's true.

Finally, you cretin, I said that Tea Baggers have not _yet_ demanded affirmative action for whites vis a vis Asian students. Read my post again. Gut ur hom skool teechur to hewlp u.

So you DO BELIEVE that George W Bush should NOT HAVE BEEN GIVEN SPECIAL CONSIDERATION for entrance into Yale JUST BECAUSE HIS DADDY WAS A YALIE.
