The Trump administration said Tuesday that it was abandoning Obama administration policies that called on universities to consider race as a factor in diversifying their campuses, signaling that the administration will champion race-blind admissions standards.
Not before time. That’s a simple racial prejudice to bring to an end.
The discriminators are so tied up in knots — look at this:
“The whole issue of using race in education is being looked at with a new eye in light of the fact that it’s not just white students being discriminated against, but Asians and others as well,” said Roger Clegg, the president and general counsel of the conservative Center for Equal Opportunity. “As the demographics of the country change, it becomes more and more problematic.”
So discriminating against whites is ok, but not against Asians? Crazy. Just treat all individuals the same.
Educational standards will now lift again, because universities won’t be forced to cater for the less-capable students allowed in by affirmative action.
