Racism at the Supreme Court, Harvard, and Princeton?

Is the Ivy League’s Admission Bias a ‘Trade Secret’?

Princeton sues to block the government’s release of documents that could show discrimination.

by Jason Riley  at the Wall Street Journal:

Shortly after the Supreme Court’s dispiriting decision last year in Fisher v. University of Texas, which upheld the use of racial preferences in college admissions, Gallup released some encouraging poll results. More than 6 out of 10 white, black and Hispanic respondents said they disagreed with the ruling. And 7 in 10 people—including 76% of whites, 61% of Hispanics and 50% of blacks—said colleges should admit applicants based “solely on merit.”

Of course, the Supreme Court’s job is to interpret the commands of the Constitution, not opinion surveys. Still, the polling results are a reminder that the courts and the college administrators who cheered the ruling are much bigger fans of racial double standards than are the general public—even those who supposedly benefit from race-based affirmative action.

But the Gallup poll also illustrates how our national discussion of racial preferences in higher education has gotten so dated. Nowhere mentioned in the survey—and only glancingly referenced in the Fisher majority opinion written by Justice Anthony Kennedy—are Asian-Americans, though they are the country’s fastest-growing racial group and have become increasingly fed up with their treatment at elite colleges.

“The old paradigm of affirmative action being about white versus black has been completely upended,” says Edward Blum of Students for Fair Admissions, a group that opposes racial preferences. “California, Arizona, Texas, Florida—these are states that are becoming majority-minority, multiracial, multiethnic. We’re competing as different racial and ethnic groups that really have less and less meaning in our multiracial and multiethnic society.”

In 2006 Jian Li filed a complaint with the Education Department’s Office of Civil Rights after he was denied admission to Princeton University. Mr. Li, who emigrated from China at age 4, had a perfect score on the SAT and graduated in the top 1% of his high school class. He alleged that Princeton violated civil-rights laws banning discrimination on the basis of race, color and national origin. The complaint was initially rejected, but Mr. Li appealed and the government reopened the investigation in 2008. Seven years later, in 2015, the Obama administration, which strongly supported the use of racial preferences in college admissions and obviously took its sweet time reviewing Mr. Li’s case, issued a report exonerating Princeton.

Last year Mr. Blum’s organization filed a public records Freedom of Information Act request with the Education Department to gain access to the same documents that the federal government used to clear Princeton of any wrongdoing. Mr. Blum’s organization represents a group of Asian plaintiffs who are suing Harvard University over its admissions policies. The judge in that case has ordered Harvard to turn over six years of admissions records, and Mr. Blum suspects that the data will show that Harvard is unlawfully capping Asian enrollment.

America’s Asian population has exploded in recent decades, and Asian attendance at highly selective schools with colorblind admissions, such the California Institute of Technology and the University of California, Berkeley, reflects this demographic trend. At Harvard, however, the percentage of Asian undergrads has remained remarkably consistent for an institution that claims race is not a determining factor in who is admitted. Mr. Blum suspects that Princeton engages in similar shenanigans, but the school has been pressuring the Education Department to deny him the information that he requested more than a year ago.

Concerned that the government was finally going to fulfill the FOIA request, Princeton sued the Education Department on March 17 to block the release of the admissions documents. The suit argues that the material being sought is exempt from FOIA, a claim that the government has rejected. The school also maintains that releasing the data would compromise student privacy, and it likened its admissions process to “trade secrets” that, if exposed, would put Princeton at a competitive disadvantage in attracting students.

Don’t believe it. Admissions officers switch schools all the time, presumably taking knowledge of admissions procedures with them, and the criteria used by elite institutions to evaluate applicants is not the equivalent of an iPhone patent. Nor is student privacy an issue since names, addresses and other personal information can be redacted. Mr. Blum’s organization simply wants the number of Asians who have applied to Princeton, their SAT scores and grade-point averages, and other information that the school used to analyze applicants academically.

What really concerns Princeton is a potential discrimination lawsuit. What ought to concern the rest of us is the apparent determination of elite colleges to punish Asians students for their academic success. Asians have long been the forgotten victims of liberal affirmative-action schemes, subject to unwritten “just for Asian” admissions standards that recall the treatment of Jews in the first half of the 20th century. Princeton wants them to shut up about it. Let’s hope they don’t.

Dear Dennis….Don’t Worry….Our Donald Is NOT Finished with the ObamaCare Mess Yet….

Dennis has been my favorite American public figure since November,  2004, that time days before the Presidential election when  twerp of twerps, creepy, con-artist, John F. Kerry,  threatened to invade the White House.    Mind you, I know Dennis is rarely  boring.   But, if you’ve never heard him “lose it”  during his radio show, you’ve missed a priceless verbal performance.

In my world priceless Dennis has slipped to second place on my American political love chart…..no fault of his.   His talents haven’t in any way diminished.  He’s been passed by in these twilight years of my life….

I discovered somebody gutsy, honest,  and new suddenly appeared on our American political horizon the evening when  feminist, Megyn Kelly pasted a number of unattractive words this strange GOP candidate running for the presidency was alleged to  have described in private about some women.   She pasted on this Republican candidate for the  the question whether he felt that foul about all women that debate night at Fox Cable network which advertises its political coverage to be “fair and balanced”.

“No”, the candidate answered with expected honesty……”Only Rosie O’Donnell”, he supplied WITHOUT HESITATION and with TOTAL HONESTY!

The entire audience at Fox, most of whom opposed him as I had as any presidential candidate, much less, a Republican one, exploded with laughter fully aware of the Truth of the matter, for no truer answer could have been said.   View the piece for yourselves….August 6, 2015 on Fox….Oh, my…..He actually declared a pig, a pig…..on television, no less.

Being a former teacher of Russian and Social Studies, I researched for more information….and found him, Donald J. Trump, absolutely loaded with talent, humor, energy, ambition, ego, and guts….and not ashamed or dishonest about it all.

It’s true, folks.  He soon after passed by Dennis as my top American hero….and has remained there ever since……

Dennis was slow on the Donald J. Trump draw for President…..He was nasty about the man.   Dennis, my man, why in hell didn’t you invite Our Donald to chat with you on your show time?    You slipped out of character ignoring, berating him, treating him as some Martian.

You failed to be fair………the only occasion upon my notice….but, enough!!!

…..except Our Dennis is “hugely” honest and he, like Our Donald, LOVES HIS COUNTRY, now so abused and attacked by leftist fascists  in control of the once honorable Democratic Party….feminists, black racists, illegal aliens, college mouthy know nothings, along with the mental  boors controlling education, television news and urban newsprint, and those dictating Marxism at colleges and universities from American coast to American coast.

I presently am trying to recover from knee replacement surgery.   The beauty of today’s morning sent me out early to continue putting  winter in  my landscape garden away for the Spring season.  Radio   Dennis where I live, appears on radio shortly after 11:00 AM Central Daylight Savings Time, it used to be called, so I had about an hour in the grounds before performing my listening to Dennis duties.

Dennis has  been invigorated by our New President….as I knew he would be……I knew he’d come to adore Our Donald as much as I…..for they both, along with me, so terribly love our country and are truly worried about the fascist inroads made endangering our once free society by the recent Obama administration and all of his ilk, including Hillary, and certain Republicans here and there..

I have seriously gardened here in Minnesota where I have lived  for more than 40 years. My landscape garden abuts a pond.  I  have the longest water front,  over 250 feet of shoreline to  the pond which I share with five neighbors….And it’s Canadian Goose invasion time this past week, time when the male-led flocks fight for the right to own their own watering space.   Studying them as they vie for status and position is a rite of Spring at my gardened grounds.    It’s another culture to study especially when  the wood ducks and mallards “Spring”  up at the same time for observation.

For three years I  had seen the same goose couple settle at the same water’s edge next to an attractive concrete bench  overlooking the widest expanse of the pond.     I love spying on  the couple while they arrange their nest.  And there they were this very morning arriving at the same spot doing the same thing Canadian Geese couples do….for they are ‘married’ for life……quite unlike  our modern American marriages these days.

The he goose simply sits in the pond water about four feet off shore, looking mean everywhere with a belch or two of piercing noise, if needed. And the she is working feverishly, skillfully, artistically putting pieces together.   I am mesmerized when I see them together, making their space where the eggs  to be laid and protected.

Last year she laid seven eggs with all of them hatching.   It was a tough April, however, for there were two snow storms one of which nearly buried the mom who was flattened out for about a week to keep the young-uns alive.   I love watching them….I love being outdoors in my gardened grounds……but, I had to leave as spectator in order to listen to Dennis’s woes of our conservative day.

Country before Garden…..but this morning it was a tough decision to make.

Dennis was truly worried about the future of the country….again…as all Americans should be…He moaned about the terrible defeat the Republicans and Our Donald suffered with the failure of RyanCare to replace ObamaCare.

I was disappointed, too….although against RyanCare, I thought Dennis-like, that it would be better to unify the Party behind Representative Ryan.   I am not a Ryan fan….He was loony too often about his ditzy emotional  dislike for Our Donald before Mr. Trump won the critical  election making him President.   Republicans  should have developed  a workable  plan ready to go.   Last Friday, however, the RyanCare plan had to be withdrawn from the House.  The votes to win were not there.

Oh my how the mindless at Fox blasted Trump and administration for the failure…..Television reports Left were even more brutal….”Our Donald’s mystique had been shattered….His Presidency was over the CNN folks memorized.

Dennis was truly upset as well.   I wasn’t.  I was proud of Our Donald for putting the ObamaCare replacement effort into Republican hands rather than his.   (Personally, I am not in favor of universal ObamaCare like “care”.   Health care should not become factory labor,  the ObamaCare way.

There became a mild set back…if Truth were to be told.  Hardly one at all, for Our Donald is still President, despite what CNN, MSNBC, NBC, PBS, ABC, CBS, and Fox, and the fake news of the American Press reported.

Dear readers….do you think for one minute  Our Donald has accepted  the GOP’s Health Care loss as final?   Do you really think it is in his DNA?   Where would it come from?

He will place the bill in his own hands with his own head following many inquiries, will  plot the best bill of them all……and will have it passed with  a margin at that.

I, like Dennis, thank GOD the guy is President….Yes, he’s a TRUE conservative who loves his country……and will  MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

 

Gustavus Adolphus Used to be Lutheran, Now Fascist Left?

I am embarrassed to confess I was fortunate to be  raised Lutheran, but not the Gustavus Adolphus variety then as well as the fascistic, feminized, or childish moronic one it is today in Minnesota.

There used to be lots of Lutheran Churches in Minnesota.   I belonged to a small American synod Lutheran on on Stanford Avenue in St. Paul.   I was Sunday schooled and confirmed there.  Clarence B. Lund was its most dynamic Pastor.  During his leadership of nearly ten years,  he had expanded membership enough to require two preachings on Sundays.  He was exceptionally well educated, gifted in voice both singing and in speech, and was nationally recognized as a leading organist including the pipe organ.   He led in the purchase of lake shore land in Chisago County for summer outdoor  learnings for boys.

At least 100 children ages 8-12 attended Sunday School regularly learning Bible Stories of the Old Testament in particular.   Sermons were reserved for lessons from the New Testament.  Unfortunately, Pastor Lund had a weakness for boys of confirmation age which caused him to move on…..to somewhere in the Lutheran ranks in Denver….music, it was mentioned quietly.

Two years ago at 80, having been ‘unchurched’ for 60 years, I craved for the old days Christmas time, and decided to take a visit to the largest Lutheran Church in Minneapolis on Christmas Day….I was aware things had changed….modern hymns of forgetful language and harmony  replaced the old unforgetable beauties our congregations of yesteryear, including even my Dad,  would sing so proudly during service.

The service opened with “Hark the Herald Angels Sing”….one our congregation seven decades ago would also sing along with the Church Choir of about 25 devoted.

At this largest Minneapolis Lutheran Church maybe a quarter of the 500 in audience actually sang along with the choir.   It was the second of two sermons that Christmas Sunday….at a Church which one time  was packed to the brim for each 5 services every Sunday if the year including  the last time I was there for Church  service 60 or more years ago.

Immediately following that introductory Carol, the audience was welcomed by a second tier Minister…..He had a welcoming voice tone…..smiled…..and reminded the audience that today, being Christmas Sunday, was Jesus’ birthday…..and then with child-like giddy tone asked the folks to stand and sing “Happy Birthday” to Jesus.

I couldn’t take it.  It  hurt too much.   Being in Church used to be so uplifting in music and message.  I quietly picked up my coat and left…..it’s the 21st Century  dying America.

Read on to learn more about the Lutheran feminized ‘presence’ in college today.

Hillary’s Attack on Vladimir Putin for Losing Election

There are countless reports covering Hillary Clinton’s psychological problems regarding her temper tantrums,  hysterics, and wild verbal attacks upon others when events, things don’t go her way.

Her left wing of the Democrat Party in the communication’s industry hid her ‘insanity moments’ one could say “religiously” although in truth,  most leftists are atheists.

Yet, not all leftists even those at MSNBC, are necessarily deceitful and evil all of the time.   I found the following MSNBC recording “It’s Sad How Hillary Clinton Is Dealing With This Election” rather refreshing, although I wouldn’t bet that all of them really have a conscience.

MSNBC: It’s Sad How Hillary Clinton Is Dealing With This Election

BBC’s Coverage of Trump’s Election Night Victory

It is indeed a pleasure to follow the BBC’s coverage of our American Presidential election last November.  I have reviewed ABC, NBC, MSNBC, PBS, CCN, CBS, and Fox coverage at minimum 3 times each, each running between 6 and almost 9 hours….as well as reactions from all ‘stations’ the day after election reality, that Donald J. Trump was indeed elected 45th President of our United States.

With the exception of Fox, the news industry  of the other American six mentioned above performs as an army of leftist bigots…and rarely cover their love for their leftist STATE above all.   MSNBC  leads the list of fanatics….hysterics, led by Chris Wallace and Rachel Maddow whose emotional political  energies arise from  the ears, skip the brain, and rush out the mouth a mile a minute often filled with hate and carp.   They regurgitate hateLeft so rapidly one often can’t keep pace with their drum beats.

Fox folks overall were allergic to Our Donald Trump at best.   Our Donald  tweets…and that was and still is a no no for GOP tubbies.

Folks at CNN are super lefties of the sexist and racist classes.   Van Jones advertised himself as a Communist for a decade or so…and still holds that Conservatives are racists,  nasty to his fellow blacks and should be made to disappear from the world’s ear.

Fox at Trump’s 168-109 electoral victory lead at about the three hour mark, havingjust won Ohio, AND Brit  Socialist BBC, WERE THE ONLY SITES THAT ADVANCED  THE LEFTIST NEW YORK TIMES  ANNOUNCEMENT THAT OUR DONALD J. TRUMP had a 91% chance of becoming the 45th American President….(BBC claimed it was a 95% chance.)

TOTALLY UNEXPECTED….in my view…..with the exception of the black racist utterances from an  American girl (representing American feminism at the BBC counter) who called Our Donald Trump and those of us fond of him….racist bigots, disgustings,  homophobes, women haters, vile this  and  deplorable  that about Trump and his voters (me, for instance)….that her angry  Hillary pronounced so often about us.

I have to confess what I sensed  from the BBC Election Night in America, Part III below:   nearly the entire British Staff covering BBC television production had a field day of fun rooting for Our Donald from the very beginning…..the only television production Brit or American which seemed profoundly enjoying the night:

Local Yokels, Franken and Klobuchar Stir at Gorsuch Marathon

Let us admit that Minnesota Senator,  Al Franken performs and perfumes  in a garbage dump of  his own making he is so repulsive.

I don’t want to place pleasant and well-meaning  Democrat feminist Amy Klobuchar  in the same paragraph at any time as this Al Franken.    In no way does she dance to airs of his brand of leftist mouth and stench, but she does vote lefty in Washington.

Yes, she is a noted feminist, which does interfere often with her thought process.

Franken’s  gophers stole his  Senate seat  from  Senator Norm Coleman in 2008.   President Barack Hussein needed a 60th leftist Party vote to pass the Obamacare smell back in 2009.   The Senator joined his classmates in Washington by ‘recount’ despite losing his election that year, adding  enough phony votes to “secure” him an Obama  seat in the U.S. Senate  by a  let’s pretend, contrived  312 vote  victory.   Gopherland GOP folks wussed by doing nothing to restore truth and integrity at the voting box….as they usually do.
