I don’t think race should be apart of the college application but their has to be a way to level the playing field not everyone gets to goto good middle and high schools

Universities are so overrated. Social sciences are so old and useless. Universities need to start teaching useful things like how to fix and manufacture.

How is tweeting in a two-dimensional world inserting yourself in a three-dimensional world?

A white conservative fighting for minorities doesn't seem to fit Vices narrative.

Just go to a public state school. No reason to go to private schools.Waste of time and money.

Affirmative action is racist. White/Asian kids both were just as qualified but the Blatino dude was the one who got in out of the three.
Mighty Boosh
Vice is still total shit , come here to thumbs down and leave

If they did away with affirmative action why would people still question how a black person got into the school? They would know they made it on their own merit...

Diverse means less white

1. Everyone acting as if it's black people's fault that Asians can't get into Ivy League schools. It's really not. The universities would admit more Asian if they WANTED to but they don't. They're intimidated by the Asian community which is growing and has taken over the rich parts of San Francisco.


2. America is ACTIVELY in competition with Asia. Asians still won't get accepted when they get rid of Affirmative Action. It's all a political strategy. America is restructuring itself.

I'm Asian, and I personally do think that Affirmative Action is a good thing, but not as it stands right now. When admissions office looks at the race and the race ONLY, it's not good. Many Blacks in America have fewer opportunities because of their socio-economic background, so what, ideally, in my opinion, a good system would look not only at the race but also at the socio-economic dynamic of our society. Blacks from low income households deserve to be admitted by Affirmative Action because those students have fewer opportunities and bigger obstacles. On the other hand, Blacks from high and medium income households would not get the privilege of Affirmative Action. Race is just a flat and lazy criteria for admission. Admission offices should look deeper because nothing is ever simple.
Edit: My idea might be bad as well because it would bloat bureaucratically and make those colleges even more expensive because bureaucracy is inefficient and expensive by nature.

race should not be allowed on a college application

Lol how is the AA not removed yet, you either beat other kids in grade or you are out how simply and fair that is. People just assume Asian do better in school than other kids what kind of nonsense is this ?
Jordan B Peterson
Notice how the black family parents are described as being from Panama and Jamaica, while the other kid's mom is just described as "white" and the dad is from Taiwan, but he's, like, been here for a long time. Vice can't even report on blatant unintentional racism from affirmative action without trying to make excuses.

There’s no justification for preferential treatment of whites over Asians. Blacks and Latinos have to overcome racism; what the hell did white people have to overcome to deserve preferential treatment over Asians in college admissions?!
Wesley J
It is so weird how we fetishize Ivy League schools. We give these schools way too much cultural capital in our society. And inevitably it just benefits rich white people who are disproportionately likely to attend these schools

3 hours a day on a bus to school. That's what racial forced desegregation brought: bitterness from preventing a kid from going to a school one block away. Because Social Justice Warriors wanted equality, not equity, reparations and to inflict pain on groups of people. Way to fight racism! With more racism! And the black kid rationalizing reparations; how he could honestly argue for anything other than admission based on merit shows a lack of self-respect. If he had any, he wouldn't say that. smh

Affirmative action gives low IQ blacks an upper hand on everybody else. It is not right and, in some cases, it's dangerous depending on the situation(i.e. air traffic controllers). Unfortunately, the *very few* smart blacks have to deal with the assumptions and questioning of their qualifications too and it's not fair to them. #putanendtoaffirmativeaction
