AfAm Group : Who do they blame now? - Affirmative Action

When there is ONE black student - will that still be too many?

When they lose their first job because they can't manage in a diverse environment - will they blame a black person?

Wait until they hear about legacy students. Right now - I want that kept in place.

Know why? Won't impact low income African American students. It WILL hurt the people who opened the door. Give it a few years. Then they can't blame us anymore.

April 2023


The Supreme Court is currently preparing a decision on Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard, a lawsuit that alleges the Ivy League university‘s race-conscious admissions process discriminates against Asian applicants.

After the court heard the case in October, advocates fear the conservative majority might mean the end of affirmative action. Students of color at both Harvard and the University of North Carolina, also being sued by Students for Fair Admissions, have spent months protesting and speaking out in favor of race-conscious admissions.

Losing that battle could put lower-income Asian American and Pacific Islander applicants at a disadvantage, Park said, as well as stunting students’ diverse educational experience.

“We know from research that low-income Asian American students actually do receive a boost under these policies,” she said. “They pay attention to not just race, but also ethnicity, to subgroups that have been historically underserved in education, like Southeast Asian Americans and the Pacific Islander community.”

Next year is going to be off the hook! Harvard tends to do whatever the hell they want !

Going through some things for the next decade.

Until the population shift. This isn't going to work out very well for the grandchildren of the White SCOTUS judges.

That VP Harris attended Howard.

What do you want to bet they start suing HBCU's for literally being HISTORICALLY black.
