To the few white members of this site who find the need to post about the performance of minorities, entrance rates, or poll your fellow white contributors regarding the performance of their minority classmates, just stop. It's obvious that you think that minorities are unqualified and stealing spots from more deserving white people with a higher chance of success. News flash: white people fail too and also, in certain cases, don't deserve to attend certain institutions. And the bottom of the class is filled with plenty of mediocre and underperforming white people, not just people of color. I think most of the posts on this site are proof of that statement.

As a black man, I'm not here for your dog-whistle, coded language, racist tomfoolery masquerading as "truth" and "honesty." Minorities are not to blame for you not getting into the school of your dreams or the fact that your current job is hell on earth. Just because you are white doesn't mean you are inherently more intelligent than me. You don't deserve anything better in life just because you're white. You don't get to automatically succeed just because you're white. You're not anything special or exceptional just because you are a white person, just like I'm not anything special or exceptional just because I'm black. That's the truth. Whiteness is not some badge of honor that gets you an all-access pass to a great life. Not anymore.

So please, do us all a favor. Stop harping on minorities and how little they deserve to be in law school. If you want to focus on mediocrity, focus on the mediocrity of your fellow white people. I promise that you'll find plenty to post about.

All white people are above average, that's what they told me in high school where I got off the boat bro!

Also you are probably best going to the dome to continue this conversation. They got a whole crew there to argue with you.

Check this one out:
How many nobel prizes in physics, chemistry, and medicine come from Sub-Saharan Africa? How many life saving medical technologies has Sub-Saharan Africa produced? How many advances in agriculture or engineering?

Seriously? I didn’t post in the thread but it was obviously topical based on Amy Wax’s UPenn comments.

I just assume that OP is a troll, and am not taking the bait. If not troll, just not worth engaging due to immaturity.

Isn’t the interesting point the rate of success though? Obviously there are millions of blacks who have better outcomes than millions of whites. That doesn’t mean the rate of success of blacks is better than whites.

FYI I am not saying blacks are inferior, but I am getting to the crux of the argument. It is a completely legitimate discussion to have as well - simply silencing people with “well that’s racist” does nothing to move forward productive discourse.

I don't deserve better and don't get to automatically succeed b/c I'm white?

Fu --. That pretty much torpedoes the fundamental principles around which I've organized 5+ decades of life.

If only someone had been considerate enough to let me in on this earlier. I was relying on the ability to half ass it through life and then being able to flash the melanin deprived skin to get hooked up w/ comp passes to the best seats in the arena.

The EPC/CRA kind of tries to set us all on a equal footing somewhat, because that's the kind of society we as Americans strive to be. Quite idealistic and noble end goal, I might add.

But you're deluding yourself if you think certain groups are not better at some things than other things. I'm intentionally trying to be super vague here. If we were all endowed with equal gifts, clusterf--- like the affirmative action policies of today wouldn't exist/need to exist.

I do not have an issue with affirmative action and academic preferences for American Blacks. I do have a problem with academic preferences for wealthy foreigners or second generation citizens that happen to have some non-European genes. Or in Elizabeth Warren’s case, people who lie about same.
