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.

Good? It should be based on qualifications.

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.
