lennavan: Bumblefark: lennavan: Bumblefark: Well, then let's keep the conversation going. Please point me to the law that apportions enrollment slots to less capable students, based on their skin color.

Don't be silly, it's not a law, it's a check box.  Look at the enrollment statistics for any college you like and there's your evidence.

I'll tell you what, I'll even make it easy on you.  I bet you can't find a single University program, undergraduate, MD, JD, PhD, etc., where it doesn't matter what race or sex you are, the statistics (GPA, SAT, GRE, MCAT, LSAT, etc) are the same.  I bet you can't find one.

Context -- how does it work?

Much as I appreciate the homework assignment, it's your assertion, you can illustrate it if you like. Then we can discuss your interpretation of the statistics. I'm guessing it will be a short conversation.

I think you are the only person who exists that actually thinks the admission standards for various educational opportunities are equal amongst the races and sexes.  Literally, the only person who thinks that.


...except the part up-thread where I say "of course" admissions take race into account, right?

So...you're pretty much a retard, huh?

So when I posted "it's not a law, it's a checkbox in admission standards" rather than agree, you decided to troll?

Nice.

Context -- still no clue how it farking works.

/Somebody suggested it that racial quotes were the law. I suggested that no such law exists, and (facetiously) asked them to point one out to me. You offer up the complete non-sequitur of pointing out admissions forms collect racial information, a fact that nobody at any point called into question... because it had fark all to do with what we were talking about.

But, yeah...clearly, I'm the one who's trolling.

Bumblefark: /Somebody suggested it that racial quotas were the law. I suggested that no such law exists, and (facetiously) asked them to point one out to me.


You suggested no such law exists.  I agreed with you and said, it's not a law, it's a policy.

Bumblefark: pointing out admissions forms collect racial information


No no, I didn't say admissions forms collect racial information.  I said admissions decisions utilize racial quotas.  See the connection there?  Of course you do but you can't admit it or the troll will end.

Hanlon's razor rarely applies on Fark.com.  But it is possible you were just too stupid to see that connection.

Kay. Where's your evidence? Because, if you haven't been following the conversation, "quota" has a pretty precise meaning in this context, and were struck down as unconstitutional a decade ago. So, you're either going to have to do some serious violence to the meaning of that word to prop your argument up, or you're going to have to spin me some fabulous tale about a "quota conspiracy" taking place in the US university system.

Let's find out which.
