Administration: Colleges Should Seek Diversity

Kimberly Hefling, Big Story, September 27, 2013

The Obama administration told colleges and universities Friday they can continue to use admissions to increase diversity among their students, even in the wake of a Supreme Court ruling that could potentially open the door to more challenges.

“Racially diverse educational environments help to prepare students to succeed in our increasingly diverse nation,” the administration said in a letter to schools.

The Supreme Court ruled June 24 that schools should approve the use of race as a factor in admissions only after concluding “that no workable race-neutral alternatives would produce the educational benefits of diversity.” The 7-1 decision, stemming from a case challenging the University of Texas admission plan, did not question the underpinnings of affirmative action.

In its Friday letter the administration said the court “preserved the well-established legal principle” that colleges and universities have a compelling interest in a diverse student body. It was signed by Catherine E. Lhamon, the Education Department’s assistant secretary in the Office for Civil Rights, and Jocelyn Samuels, the Justice Department’s acting assistant attorney general in the Civil Rights Division.

Lhamon said the administration hopes colleges and universities aren’t making changes in admissions policies because of the ruling.

In an accompanying “questions and answers” paper, the administration said race can be considered as long as the admission programs can show that the criteria are narrowly tailored.

“I would hope that colleges and universities would undertake these programs in carefully structured ways that would avoid legal challenge, and we certainly are available to try to help them do that,” Samuels said.

Education Secretary Arne Duncan said Friday that a diverse enrollment, “promotes cross-racial understanding and dialogue, reduces racial isolation and helps to break down stereotypes.”

    No, from what I’ve seen, diversity winds up justifying stereotypes.

    • bigone4u

      Number 1 comment because you got the truth in a nutshell.

      Stereotypes aren’t 100% accurate, but you will never lose money betting on them.

  • MekongDelta69

    Another (of endless) babblings about “seeking diversity.”

    Leftists are relentless and will never give up until this formerly great country is entirely decimated.

      Ironically, everyone now knows to take the degrees of blacks and Latinos with a huge grain of salt. It’s the country’s dirty little secret that Latino and black graduates in STEM fields are NOT as capable as their white or Asian counterparts.

      Oh, they may have the sheepskin that says M.D. or M.S., but the entire world knows that if the holder of the degree is black or Latino, chances are very high that they can’t really do the work.

      • cablegirls

        Few of these affirmative action — that is, otherwise unqualified but for skin color — go on to graduate. Five per cent is a typical figure. That’s right — 5%.

        Affirmative action is racial bias. It is discriminatory against whites.

  • D.B. Cooper

    Where’s the offense, Republican Party? The liberals attack, and attack and the GOP does nothing. The Republican Party itself has allowed itself to become infested by liberals like John McCain, and Cruz the mentirosa (liar). All of these clueless white college students have never heard of Affirmative Action, why not reach out to them? It would be easier to get their vote instead of the minority vote you will never have.

    • Rhialto

      McCain is focused on the Syrian menace; Cruz is fighting Obamacare. They are too busy to bother about the minor issue of White men being deprived of educational opportunities.

      • Lewis33

        At least one of those two is fighting something that is a threat to Americans. Not that I’m a fan…

      • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

        The entire system will collapse because the best of the nation have been being removed for some time now and we are past critical mass. The implosion is already beginning but watch the momentum build. It might be some time before normal life for most people comes to a halt, but this is what will happen and then- we’ll see who’s really prepared, intelligent and worthy to survive.

    • So CAL Snowman

      You have this misguided notion that the Republican party was once this bastion of White male American power. Both parties have been co-opted for the last 100 years. Bashing the Republicans makes no sense because for the last century they have not been on our side. The mistake is to think that the Republicans were ever on our side. They were not, they were just the phony opposition wearing the Red (R) jerseys.

      • D.B. Cooper

        No, I only had that misguided notion back when I was a teenager, but that was back when Reagan was president.
        Now, I can see right through Cruz’s lies. Unfortunately, too many conservatives do not.

        • shawnmer

          Not that I expect Cruz will be writing guest editorials for us or anything, but what’s he done to offend you thus far? And what specifically has he “lied” about?

        • Sick of it

          Not sure what you have against Cruz, but his wife’s place of business makes me suspect him a bit.

      • Beetlejuice

        Amen. Both parties work for the exact same masters for the exact same purpose. Politicians are commodities to be bought and sold to the highest bidder.

  • Luca

    When I was growing up we always had diversity. We had Jews, Catholics, Protestants, Irish, Poles, Italians, French, Russian, blacks, British, Native Americans, hispanics, Swedes, Hungarians etc. Apparently that was not enough.

    This is a thinly veiled attempt to overwhelm this country with third-world dregs to the point where they are the majority and will still be called “minorities.” They will be present everywhere in overwhelming numbers because just like the Russian Revolution of 1917, the Marxists love having a large group of “oppressed” low IQ, peasants who are so easily influenced.

    They are conducting class, culture and racial warfare. White, heterosexual, conservative, Christian males are target number one..

    • D.B. Cooper

      So what? What percent of “White, heterosexual, conservative, Christian males” are either all for it, or not willing to clean out the Republican Party?
      Most white boys are too dumb to even notice that 90% of these commercials are making fun of them, and will still go out and buy the product.

      • ncpride

        I’ve opened a few eyes by ‘jokingly’ pointing out the same thing to people, and have them tell me weeks or months later that they had never noticed all the White male bashing before, but now they can’t miss it.

        • Erasmus

          Humor is often a very effective way to wake people up. Posing as an innocent rube and raising uncomfortable questions also works well.

          • Beetlejuice

            “Ridicule is man’s greatest weapon,” said Saul Alinsky, and it has been used very effectively against white males. It’s OK to make fun of whites but any other race and you’ll find yourself jobless.

        • Alfred the Great

          How about all of the mixed race nonsense in the media? Once I see it in an advertisement, I don’t buy the product. I don’t watch anything with the mixed race agenda. And I don’t go to Mexican restaurants–it’s called boycott. Being a Texan In the Greatest State of Texas, I know that they are not hard working and Conservative.

      • Luca

        So then, it is up to those of us who are awake and aware.

        I have also noticed the appalling number of shows that portray white people as stupid toothless hillbillies. All these shows about the Amish, the alligator wrestlers, the swamp people, the honey boo-boos, and now the latest is some snake religion where stupid hillbilly people get bit by snakes.

        It would be nice to give black folks equal air time to show their stupidity aside from Cops and People’s Court.

        • rowingfool

          Isn’t that the height of audacity? They depict the Amish as ruthless, gangster-like thugs. They drag every sacred, good thing through the muck. They are casting down our shrines and justify desecrating them with the excuse of exposing them as “false idols”. That we docilely accept this shows that we are truly a conquered people. The victors always pillage the vanquished peoples temples. That’s their prerogative. We are doomed.

          • Luca

            It only takes a small minority of brave men to upset the apple cart. Most of the people in the American colonies were loyalists, neutral or not willing to leave their homes, families and farms. It only took a small percentage who were willing to act. Do not despair.

      • Sick of it

        Quite a few want a new party, but are afraid it will end up being a third party with little support. The two party system is really too entrenched in this country.

        • Alfred the Great

          George Washington warned about men being more loyal to party than to their constituents. The ancient Greeks had the same problem.

      • newscomments70

        I saw a rarity the other day, a pair of white teens on an advertisement, a boy and a girl. A few seconds into the ad, I realized what was going on. The boy was goofy-looking, stupid, and effeminate. That was obviously deliberate. I wanted to throw a brick through the TV.

        • Sangraal

          I remember noticing the ridiculing of men vis-a-vis women in adverts from a very young age. But i didn’t shake off the liberal stupor until relatively recently. Funny how a child can notice something that many adults are oblivious to. I think that shows the power of indoctrination in suppressing the organic nature of common sense and perception.

    • cablegirls

      Today, diversifying means embracing the unassimilable.

    • Alfred the Great

      I would have used the word enslaved instead of the word influenced.

  • Sighisoara

    I would love to see all of the scientific studies they can site to inform me all about the “educational benefits of diversity”. I can’t believe those four words were used together, but it was a little funny.

  • Truthseeker

    “Racially diverse educational environments help to prepare students to succeed in our increasingly diverse nation.”

    “[Diversity] promotes cross-racial understanding and dialogue, reduces racial isolation and helps to break down stereotypes.”

    So then, does this mean white people should be free to have a sense of white identity, and that they should be allowed to speak from an explicitly white perspective? After all, we need to understand each other’s views, don’t we? And let’s face it, most non-whites don’t really understand how white people think, because whites in the universities either parrot cultural Marxist tripe that no person with a lick of common sense actually believes, or are forced to speak from some generic, race-neutral perspective lest they be banished from “respectable” social circles.

    I guess all race-specific student unions should be banned too, because that’s a form of racial isolation. They should have no place to discuss their views or perspectives among each other, because that time could be better spent learning how other people groups think.

    • SFLBIB

      “…we need to understand each other’s views, don’t we?”

  • IKantunderstand

    Bottom line: approval for affirmative action. Or, as I call it: wholesale discrimination against Whites. This is all a hoax, perpetrated against Whites. Diversity is divisive. Whites have achieved the greatest culture ever in the history of the world.(Which, by the way, we were the only race to actually WRITE a history of the world). And, now, apparently, we are including all the loser races of the world. Ohh, to make them feel better about their lack of, well, everything. Human nature is immutable. Human races are immutable; at least to the extent of our imaginings, unless, and until, wholesale DNA engineering is employed, or, nature takes its course. But, if in fact DNA is engineered, will the results actually reflect the much vaunted diversity? Soon, many, many people will lose jobs to technology. And yet, I have read that the population of Africa will soon double. Think about it: What is the answer? Trust me, there are people out there who have come up with a plan. And, please trust me again: You as a White person, are not going to like it.

  • Brian

    It’s hard to debate someone who simply unilaterally insists that his goals provide “benefits” while refusing to offer even the slightest evidence for this, indeed while refusing to even define what those benefits are. At the same time, he demands that all parties to the debate accept that said “benefits” are real while creating a climate of intimidation where to suggest otherwise brands one a pariah and puts at risk one’s livelihood.

    • John Ulfsson

      Leftists love vaguery. Most of the cornerstones of their arguing points have strength in their vaguery. Racism, Oppression, Sexism, Marginalizing. Bigotry.

      They’re so vague it leaves you to think “where do I even start?”

      • Sick of it

        Indeed, one could say that they are perpetrating everything they are against but only targeting straight white men, particularly Christians.

    • SFLBIB

      The Emperor’s New Clothes is the perfect allegory to illustrate this.

  • Evette Coutier

    I would like to see one, just one single research paper that actually documents how diversity benefits any university, college, or k-12 school system that is backed up with facts. These are colleges were research is a way of life, their bread and butter, and yet not a single research study has shown any tangible evidence that ethnic diversity adds any value to academic institutions. In fact all data shows the exact opposite. What hypocrisy.

    • leftists are delusional

      The only benefit is they get sued less.

    • IstvanIN

      Didn’t he have the SEALs who got Osama killed?

      • The helicopter full of SEALs that were killed in a missile attack in Afghanistan not long after the OBL raid, is what you’re referring to.

        Yeah, that had to have happened either because an enemy mole placed high up somewhere in the White House or Pentagon communicated back to the Taliban that a bunch of SEALs were going to be on a helicopter run in a certain place, or Obama is that enemy mole, in that he basically offered up those SEALs as a consolation prize to the Muslims he loves so much in exchange for having to off OBL for the purpose of his own re-election campaign.

  • I am actually getting through “The Bell Curve”, finally. No college should seek diversity.

    • JohnEngelman

      Agreed. But colleges and employers should allow diversity based on personal merit.

      • Jefferson

        if it was just based on personal merit, 90%-95% of all Nonwhite students in America’s universities would be Asian. The Bantu and Mestizo presence at America’s universities would be be miniscule.

        • itdoesnotmatter

          True of Berkeley, John. Someone said of Cal, “if students were admitted solely on merit, UC would be a school of Chinese girls.”
          [In spite of mandated minority admits], high performing Lowell H.S in S.F., and multiple Bay Area classical education private schools are primary feeders to U.C.B.
          Perfect or near perfect SAT scoring Chinese, Jewish, and Anglo candidates from Lowell and our private schools are turned away from U.C. to make room for affirmative action minorities and athletes.
          As someone here said, it creates interracial animosity.

          • newscomments70

            I believe that the athletic programs should be restructured back to what they used to be. At one time they were athletic programs for actual students, not illiterate thugs on steriods. Obama and his followers want to destroy what is left of traditional America. Imagine how they would feel if we dismantled their black dominated athletic programs? We need to push back.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            Agree, news, but am not holding my breath awaiting that moment when Whites awaken from their Lazee-Boy and nachos stupor, turn off blackified TV sports channels, and mobilize as a cohesive group and do something about it.

            Blacks are single minded about what they want, Whites are splintered.

            I hear you on that one. Every pizza joint and bar in the Southland (California) blasts pro sports, except hockey. The whites are glued to the monitors while guzzling down beer and nachos. I wouldn’t underestimate people though. Everytime I post, “Boycott anti-white sports” on mainstream media, I receive several hundred thumbs up. Furthermore, some teams are struggling to retain viewers. The Houston Astros has record low ratings. Other teams have the same problem. The LA lakers are doing great though. Fans are still lighting cars on fire outside of the Staples center.

          I agree. Some posters here think white Gentiles of European origin deserve special consideration.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            Ideally, our collegiate admission policy should favor White natural born USA citizens who qualify on merit first.
            Ashkenazim, who are White in my view, would be included in that group. [An unpopular position here on AmRen, I know.] If Ashkenazim are 50% of the admissions, so be it. Gentiles, work harder, compete with Jewish applicants for the top.
            High scoring, qualifying low income Whites would be granted tuition assistance.
            If there are any spots remaining, U.S. born Asians. Those two groups would max out admission spots at UCB.
            No affirmative action admits whatsoever, no matter how accomplished an athlete candidate may be.

            Sports team members would be required to maintain at least a 3.0 GPA.

          • JohnEngelman

            First you say, “our collegiate admission policy should favor White natural born USA citizens.” Then you say, “No affirmative action admits whatsoever.”

            These statements contradict each other.

          • itdoesnotmatter

            How, John? My intention is clear. AA admits are those who gain admission for reasons other than merit, i.e. athletes, minorities, even women. I am in favor of ending that practice.

          • JohnEngelman

            You seem to be in favor of admitting less qualified “White natural born USA citizens,” ahead of more qualified non whites and non citizens. That is affirmative action in favor of “White natural born USA citizens.”

            Diversity is beneficial when it brings together the most intelligent people from all over the world, requiring only that they be able to speak English fluently. It certainly makes corporations more competitive.

          • Jefferson

            Hey John, which Non Asian Gentile group has the highest average I.Q ? Is it the Germans ? I read somewhere that Germany has the highest average I.Q in all of Europe.

            John recently more or less admitted that many Jews obtained the genes for their higher IQs from intermixing with Germans.

            I am aware that this is a radical stance, but yes, I favor the above to regain the balance we’ve lost.
            As it stands now, UCB reagents are in a race to the top for collegiate race replacement numbers.
            Do you have any idea how many perfect SAT score whites apply to the UC system only to be rejected?
            We don’t need any more diversity on these campuses, John.

    When white students see black students at their universities who perform less well than white friends of theirs who applied and were not admitted, when white employees see black co workers who perform less well than white friends who applied for jobs and were not hired, it does not dispel anti black stereotypes. It reinforces racial animosities.

    Here’s the administrator workaround that the bull in this article totally omits. Forget admissions and think recruiting. My former employer, designated by the feds as an “Hispanic serving institution” recruited and made welome Hispanics, while (believe it or not) pretty much ignorning blacks. I am not familiar with the details but I know there is some special federal money for these “Hispanic-serving institutions” (the term makes me gag). The university is pretty much open admissions, so admission policies are irrelevant, as in the case of many similar schools. It’s the recruiting that shapes the complexion of the student body. The university president, a Mexican, is always praising Mexican culture and values, thus justifying his M & M policy, standing for More Mexicans. Hidden meaning: Only the brown M&Ms are served here.

    “Racially diverse educational environments help to prepare students to succeed in our increasingly diverse nation,”

    I would like to hear just one spineless politician, or academic pinhead explain exactly how “racially diverse educational environments” help students with anything at all, let alone contribute to success. Just one. I’m listening and waiting.

    • SFLBIB

      The reality of “affirmative action” and “diversity” is that they are simply euphemisms for racial discrimination on a very large scale in order to increase black (and, in Texas, Mexican-American) enrollment. The magnitude of the race discrimination must be large, because the racial group gap is large. … Race preferences in admission to selective
      schools serves not to address but to conceal or ignore the problem and to divert attention from the need for greater effort to address it.

    “promotes cross-racial understanding and dialogue, reduces racial
    isolation and helps to break down stereotypes.”

    That’s not what Prof. Putnam said about diversity. I think his finding was more along the lines of reducing social trust and cohesion, less involvement and volunteering, and more of a hunker-down, turtle in the shell mentality. And that jibes with my own experience. I just feel relief washing over me when I get back around my own, like taking off a necktie at the end of the workday.

        Colleges also reserve slots for foreign students due to the extra tuition charges. They also receive federal funding to expand building projects but rarely do public universities increase acceptance rates into Medical (MD or nursing), counselling or engineering programs. These low numbers might be set at 25 students p/y year for the last 30 years. We don’t have the faculty size or growth rate in academic institutions as our flooded populations demand.

    Well, American students spend much of their free time pursuing extra-curricular activities like sports and dance. Also, throw in hours for gaming and TV viewing. Many Asians spend up to 25 hours p/w studying from school text books, with very strict parents who prevent any type of social life.

    • JohnEngelman

      What is wrong with that? Hard work is supposed to be a good thing.

      Some of the posters here sneer at blacks who get into trouble when they should be going their homework. They should appreciate the fact that Asians do their homework when they could be getting into trouble.

      I admire Orientals and immigrants from India because they usually do well in school, and because they have low rates of crime and illegitimacy.

        I came from a school with overachieving Asians and Whites. There is just NOT enough academic scholarships available based on SAT scores and community action. Their scores only had a few point differences. Many of the top 25% of the higher-performing White students went for sports scholarships like basketball, volleyball, Lacrosse, tennis and also, they competed for Fine Arts grants. It was so hyper-competitive. There may only be one scholarship per school or State. Many excellent students are turned away and must find funding elsewhere.

        If everything is based on merit and affirmative action is completely eliminated from society, that will solve a lot of problems.

    What do you call the person who finishes dead last in his medical school class?

    “Doctor.”

    • Formerly_Known_as_Whiteplight

      In my class the lowest achiever had a 3.7 GPA. Is that too dumb to be a physician? Well, I had a 25 year career and saved many lives while deploring and fighting corruption. I was published four times in journals, worked on Olympic athletes in the U.S. and Europe as well as celebrities. The corruption finally over-came me, but I squeaked by as the lowest achiever in my graduating class.

      There is danger in over generalizing, but if your point is that you’d rather not have a black physician, I’d have to agree with you. I don’t recommend them or nurses or any other in health care, insurance, or even as an attorney. Stay away from blacks in general.

    Diversity = No Whites. This is what they mean when they speak in diversity-cloaked platitudes.

    • Diversity = No white heterosexual males.

      • Beetlejuice

        100% black/Asian/Hispanic neighborhood = diverse.
        100% Black churches = diverse.
        Diversity is a code word for “no more white people.”

    As long as they can watch their negro-ball on TV and slug down beers, they are content.

    • I turned off the TV three weeks ago. Quit watching sports four or five years ago.

  • FransSusan

    They’re (colleges) also all about giving passing grades to students who would otherwise fail, classes that have no value (black studies programs, for example), and, consequently, GIVING diplomas to students who haven’t EARNED a degree. You’re right; colleges/universities once had rigorous programs that one had to work very hard to pass. Earning a college degree was once an indication that one had done a lot of work and was intelligent. Now, in too many instances, especially for black students, the degree may not be worth the paper on which it’s printed!

    Until relatively recently, there were a lot of white football players. As with everything else, affirmative action has struck professional sports.

  • Beetlejuice

    “Now in the Leftist classes, the minority students I saw were rarely ever picked on by the professors, nor was their substandard work ever called out.”

    College professors know this would be career-ending. The “students” would scream racism and run off to the MANY pro-black/hispanic/Asian activist groups on campus.

    From one on the inside: Professor have already written blacks off as unintelligent and uneducated. They are nothing more than a nuisance and everyone knows it, it’s give ’em a C and be done with it.

  • Beetlejuice

    Two World Wars and then a hostile take over of the media, government, financial system and schools by a white-hating, non-white, alien people who desire white genocide.

  • Sick of it

    Some of those grandfather types bust your chops a bit too much. You can be singled out for being highly intelligent, rather than the other way around, and find your ultimate grade suffer for not quite living up to their expectations.

    Colleges are suppose to be about education not social engineering.

    What is the endpoint? Where will we be diverse enough? When whites are oppressed and government ceases to function anyway?

    The mantra is that there is no such thing as race. If that is true, then how does race represent diversity? It’s all about control and forced racial mixing.

    “Racially diverse educational environments help to prepare students to
    succeed in our increasingly diverse nation,” the administration said in a
    letter to schools.

    First, did we ever ask for an increasingly diverse (i.e., non-white) nation? No, we did not. This is imposed upon us by our political overlords. Second, if I can’t get into a university in the first place because the place was taken by an affirmative action black, how does that help me succeed in an increasingly diverse nation? There is one way in which diverse educational environments may help some white students to succeed in our increasingly non-white nation — wide eyed kids from Iowa will encounter the denizens of the black students’ union and become race realists. That will no doubt help them survive the looming disaster.

    Post offices have been laying people off very badly for the past decade or so because governments are forcing companies to go paperless to be more environment friendly, and sending and receiving things electronically is cheaper and faster and there are more and more ways to do things electronically.

    It is impossible to make everyone happy. The government meant well when it tried to create a paperless, environment friendly society and it reduced operating cost for companies but many people in the post industry are losing their jobs…

  • WR_the_realist

    Our federal government leads the anti-white charge, although any city government with a majority black or Hispanic electorate will be just as bad.

    Whites will ALWAYS be on top….have the wealth. “Diversity” will NEVER change that….

  • PROUD TO BE WHITE

    LET ME BREAK IT DOWN TO A FACT IS A FACT. I did not undertake a
    “mickey-mouse” Humanities degree that seems so common among University students
    these days. I undertook a B.Sc(Hons) followed by a PhD in the Physical
    Sciences. My major was chemistry my sub majors were physics and mathematics.
    THERE IS NO WAY YOU COULD ACQUIRE SUCH QUALIFICATIONS UNLESS YOU HAD THE
    ABILITY – CALL IT WHAT YOU WILL; IQ, NATIVE INTELLIGENCE OR ABSTRACT REASONING
    ABILITY. It would have been just too hard to get such a qualification unless
    you understood what you were doing – period.

    I am now old and retired but in my youth I travelled the world and met
    many people in my profession. How many African-American or Hispanics did I meet
    in my profession, well very few. How many African-Americans or Hispanics did I
    meet sporting a BA, well far too many. I come from a time when a University
    degree meant something, but not so these days. We have made university entrance
    too easy for too many and in the process diluted the value of a “college”
    degree. I am happy to say that the hard core subjects like chemistry and
    physics still attract bright people, but these days a BA means very little
    compared with what it did some 50 years ago.

    What does this have to do with race difference, well simply this: to
    meet the needs of the less gifted we have destroyed the intellectual integrity
    of our Universities and now gifted people are finding it increasingly difficult
    to find a university place because of liberal quotas designed to favour the
    not-so gifted.
