Surprise, surprise, surprise as Gomer Pyle used to say for those of you who remember him… Of course only a bumbling idiot like Gomer Pyle would actually be surprised by the recent findings of the Department of Justice.
The Department of Justice just finished a two-year investigation into the admission process for undergraduates to Yale University. The investigation came about after a group of Asain American’s complained they were being discriminated against in violation of Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
It came as no surprise to anyone familiar with what’s been taking place that the Department of Justice found that Yale University was discriminating on the bases of race and national origin… In fact, it was so obvious that white and Asian American students only had about one-tenth to one-fourth the chance of being admitted when compared to African American applicants with similar academic credentials.
One probably would not have to go back as far as 1964 when the Civil Rights Act was passed to find a time when Yale was full of predominately white students with their noses turned up so high they couldn’t see to walk, but over at least the past twenty years as the liberals have secured a controlling interest in our nations education system being anything but a black African-American has become a disqualified… Regardless of test scores or academic achievements.
One could probably argue we were better off when the affirmative action programs were in place… At least things were out in the open then and you knew going in what your handicap was going to be… I remember when hard-working African-American’s were opposed to affirmative action because they didn’t like having the stigma attached to them that they got a job because of their skin color… They wanted to be recognized for being hard working intelligent men and women… Not for the color of their skin the way these spoiled brats today want to be recognized…
The Supreme Court has actually held that colleges and universities may consider race in certain limited circumstances as one of a number of admission factors, but the Department of Justice found that Yale’s use of race was anything but limited.
Yale was using race in multiple steps through the admissions process and it resulted in the impact race had on approval being multiplied significantly… They were also found the be racially balancing their classes.
Because Yale University receives millions of dollars annually from the American taxpayers, they are required to comply with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. The Act prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, or national origin in programs and activities that receive federal funding. The Act also includes protection for the LGBTQ people now too.
The Department of Justice is demanding that Yale University agree not to use race or national origin when considering the 2020-2021 undergraduate admissions. If Yale wants to use race or national origin in future admission cycles they are going to have to submit a plan to the Department of Justice that conforms to Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964… The Department of Justice also wants them to identify a date they plan to end any racial discrimination.
E Pluribus Unum… We need to make sure ALL American’s are born and raised to embrace that…
