I'm a liberal lefty, and I think this is necessary, if not for any other reason than to be a counterweight to all the bullshit in western academia. Getting rid of affirmative action would be even better.

I'm all for helping out people who otherwise couldn't afford college, but I don't see a good reason it shouldn't be based on income and ability to pay.

Thats scholarship... Affirmative action is getting because there is a race quota regardless if there are more qualified students of other races.

It's not income based - it's purely race based. For example, blacks get a 20 point bonus on top of their SAT scores, to help them 'keep up'. Otherwise there would be no blacks that would qualify. So in order to engineer diversity, they have lowered the bar for blacks and hispanics. Orientals actually get a disadvantage because there's too many of them that qualify, and same with whites.

So you can have an Oriental or white kid with substantially better grades and scores, but the minority kid with lower scores will be qualified before them in order to fill the affirmative action diversity quota.

This is why BLM blew up in the uni's over there - because these folks are literally too stupid to actually qualify for that school on their own merits. They were let in solely for diversity, and well, this is what happens when you let the retards consider themselves intellectually superior. It's also a shame that they are taking places away from much brighter minds, just because they're a minority.

Giving advantages to someone based on their skin color is like giving an advantage to people with red hair. If any handouts must be given, they should use socioeconomic as the first metric. Doing it based on physical appearance causes more damage than it helps.

There would be like 10 blacks there if not for affirmative action and quotas.

I work with a few black people, and they're good at what they do... But they misunderstand or instill a false meaning into everything you say.

"You want a bagel?"

"I worked hard for this cereal I just pulled out of my bag that you didn't see until now, are you implying I'm poor?"

"Uh no... So you don't want a bagel?"

Fucking annoying.

Now this is the LEAST racist thing we can do.

Invest in inner city schools to help poor kids (that happen to also be disproportionately black). Fine. That's fair.

Give them a free pass into institutions so the better student from Wisconsin doesn't excel to his genius? Fuck no.

In 2002, i was involved in the founding of a student organization called the MED club.

It stood for Men of European Descent. It was founded to protect the rights of white men from the increasing social and financial infringements upon their lives, especially in the academic setting.

I am 100% Asian. The other founding members were a lanky adorable Puerto Rican girl and our token super gay white boy.

I'm just glad I could partake in the lighting of the fire.

The fire rises.

We were the only members. Just saying.

Good for you.

Obligatory link.

This is all such a sad state of affairs. I've actually been called out for my belief that there is only one race; the human race. And that we are ALL related, we are ALL a dysfunctional family and that we are ALL better off united than divided. I was called out because my beliefs denied people of their ethic identity (this was on reddit, naturally). People are actually choosing divisions based on the silliness of skin color. It's crazy. To steal a sexual innuendo joke from The Kids in the Hall, we are all pink inside. I love the variety of genetic make-up throughout the world. It's something that should be lauded, not something used to divide and separate.

Fuck these neo-segregationists.

Perhaps because skin color is more than a color to people. To me, my white skin represents a shared history and a greater European culture with others. My fellow Whites are my people, and I want to share a society with them, and I believe in the right for all other races to have thst for themselves. If you think you're in a place to tell people they can't feel or act a certain way because of the way because of how you think, perhaps it's you who's crazy.

People who don't have achievements or skills of their own have to take pride in superficial things like gender, sexuality, race, and what color they've dyed their hair this week.

But we also come in fairly well defined sets of genetic differences. And, unfortunately for your way of thinking, it does not stop at the neck. Do you really think people would care at all about skin color, if it was the only difference? Fuck no.

We are different (or call it diverse) to the core. And we don't like the other, the xenos, those we cannot understand or predict.

Yeah, whatever. Homogeneity promotes the most success. Cultural evolution and advancement is very much dependent on race, like it or not.

I'll link to one comment I made about this a while ago.

I'll be the head of the Asian club if you be the head of the white club. Just to fuck with them, and to show that you know, we can actually care about people who don't look the same as us. Ridiculous the idea that somehow only black can care for or understand black. So racist.

I don't blame them.

Why the fuck would you even go there to begin with? I do have to admit, no one knows how nutty some of these left-wing universities are until you go to one. Nothing can prepare you for rich kids who are obsessed with becoming Communists. It makes no sense, but hey, that's the way it is.

Kids need to rebel against the prior generation, it is natural for them to evolve beyond the past ideas. Perhaps there just aren't enough tangible problems that touch them directly, which causes them to lash out however childishly at whatever they can (in this case white cis hetero blah blah)

This shit really only resides in the Liberal Arts clique.

The STEM programs are some of the world's most renowned and they don't really give a shit. Not at least until they get called out for having a sexist bias and an inequality of females and minority groups in their programs.

They once ran a bake sale where they would give away cookies for free to blacks, sold cookies for at heavily discounted price to Hispanics and full price to white students.
