More Latino Than White Students Admitted to UC

KABC (Los Angeles), April 18, 2014

For the first time, more Latino than white students in California have been offered admission to UC schools this fall, officials said Friday.

According to preliminary admissions data, 17,589 Latino students have been accepted as freshmen at one of the UC’s nine undergraduate campuses, or 29 percent of all in-state applicants who got in. That compares to 16,378 white students who were admitted.

It’s the first time this has happened statewide at the University of California. {snip}

“Those numbers describe the change in demography of the state of California and, of course, Orange County,” said Douglas Haynes, UCI associate vice provost for equity and diversity.

Nearly 40 percent of California’s population is Latino. {snip}


Asian Americans remained the largest single ethnic group represented in the accepted freshman class this fall, making up 36 percent. Black students received 4 percent of the admission offers.

    And they claim this is not reconquista.Welcome to mexico el norte.

    Then… DON’T go to UC…

    • JDInSanD

      They also don’t mention their graduation rates.

      I suspect the interested and qualified white kids have seen the writing on the wall and will go to either private or out-of state schools. They’ve spent the last 12 yrs of their lives trying to learn around the NAMs, and now that they have the freedom to choose will do so wisely.

    • Erasmus

      They said “admitted” and are problem counting in the latino gardeners and janitors “admitted” to campus.

  • shawnmer

    On paper, diversity quotas are banned in California, correct? How are they still seating more Hispanics than whites?
    Anyone know?

    • Rhialto

      I am not acquainted with the California situation, but in my locale many White guys are not about to go into debt for over $100,00 for 4 years of Liberal indoctrination. Their employment opportunities will not be greatly increased even for STEMers as they will have to compete with Third World geniuses and the Diversityites for jobs.

      I know of three directly: One could have been an Electronics engineer; he is a great electrician. The second could have been a mechanical engineer; he is a mechanic/farmer. The third could have been a lawyer; he is a salesman.

        More blacks and browns in the professions means more incompetence, more crumbling infrastructure, more unemployment and more poverty. Affirmative action and diversity on the job are just nation-wrecking operations.

        • Bossman

          Many professional jobs these days are not so great. A lot of those jobs require you to be on-call at nights and weekends and have you deal with a lot of trashy people.

      • Ella

        It also means that Whites are not moving forward in degreed professions that allow too many job opportunities to go elsewhere.

    • So CAL Snowman

      They aren’t paying any attention to the laws. That would be my guess.

    • MBlanc46

      I believe one way is that, after AA was outlawed, UC decided that anyone in the top 10% of his/her class would be admitted, regardless of other qualifications.

  • I doubt this was the case at Berkeley and UCLA.

    The UC system probably let the Hispanics have UC-Merced.

    • So CAL Snowman

      I would guess that UC Riverside would be the biggest “beneficiary” of this new and improved acceptance rate for hispanics along with UC Merced.

    Welcome to Idiocracy : Real Life Edition

    Watch as our formerly great Universities are reduced to Chicano Studies think tanks and La Raza commissar meetings.

    ““Those numbers describe the change in demography of the state of
    California and, of course, Orange County,” said Douglas Haynes, UCI
    associate vice provost for equity and diversity.”

    Really? Then why are Asians 36 percent of all incoming freshmen despite being a significantly smaller percentage of the California population than hispanics?

    This is nothing more than the ethnic cleansing of Whites from the Universities our ancestors founded.

    “The Liberal State is a mask behind which there is no face; it is a scaffolding behind which there is no building.”

    The classes start out at practically standing room only. As each week passes more and more seats become available due to those who can’t or won’t keep up. More than half won’t even graduate. They even drop out of Spanish 101

    • Einsatzgrenadier

      Higher education is just a money racket at this point. As far as the academic mafia is concerned, it’s all about bums in seats. Lower educational standards means more profit for them.

      • Luca

        Not only is it a money racket, it is also an indoctrination mill.

      • Ella

        It’s definitely a money racket for the US tax payers who help finance these bureaucratic institutions through local and federal taxes.

      • r j p

        70% of the classes taught at Harold Washington branch of City Colleges of Chicago are remedial education. One really needs to see the monkeys that leave there.

    • obot

      I remember in college when all the blacks and most of the chicanos would disappear after the financial aid and student loan checks were disbursed

  • mobilebay

    Suppose they’ll find enough “Latinos” since a great majority drop out of high school. Perhaps they’ll go to Mexico to recruit them.

    • MBlanc46

      It was easier to bring Mexico to them.

  • crystalevans

    My question is how many of these Hispanics will graduate from UC schools. I can bet more Whites and Asians will graduate than Hispanics.

    • Greg Thomas

      My question is how many of these hispanics are illegal invaders and thus, taking a spot away from a White American and all the opportunities that come with a college education.

  • Peter Connor

    Average SAT/ACT scores for hispanics no doubt much lower than rejected whites and asians.

    • More than likely. If I were unscrupulous, I could make a killing doing homework for Hispanics at my college. They are terrible at school. I’d bet there are a lot of under the table White tutors keeping the Hispanics afloat.


    They can educate as many as they want . . The USA is still on schedule to
    become a 3rd world nation by 2039

    • obot

      Go to Brazil for a glimpse of the future

      • bubo

        One difference is that Brazil hasn’t had decades of racial agitation and resentment directed against the white population like we’ve had here. In Brazil whites are on top and that is the way it is, no apologies.

        • Bossman

          Yeah, that is true but they are not resented all that much because chances are many of those white people have cousins who are black or Mestizo.

    • DiversityIsDeath

      Yes, and third world America will be unable to compete globally even with other third world nations like China and India.

  • Intrep1d

    I’ll reiterate what some people have already alluded to. A graduating class can look significantly different from the entering class. This is also one of the core arguments against Affirmative Action; it produces a mismatch between student abilities and their respective educational programs. Dropout rates increase as does depression, financial debt etc for those who can’t handle it.

  • obot

    Most of them will major in Chicano Studies and/or drop out

  • dukem1

    29% Latino, 4% Black…Quite the coalition they’ve got there.

  • Hispanics prefer to stay local unlike the white kids. Whites move and get to experience life away from home. That’s the same reason hispanics join Marine Corps – to get stationed in Pendleton and drive home every weekend.

  • Bossman

    People from around the world still think an American education is the best kind of education. Many of those Asians could just be foreign students from China and India.

  • mei mei

    but many latinos look white though
