Check this:



This is just ridiculous. If race is the most important criteria for medical school admissions, then why we are even having MCAT and all that? Just admit them based on the race. This will destroy the American medical system, which is already under pressure from insurers and pharma cartels.

1. Had one of one “Black” been admitted, that would have been an acceptance rate of 100.0%.

2. If the schools should succeed in educating their students, “the American medical system” (bryant.coleman) should not so falter.

This is insane. Asians require a higher score than whites to get in?
You are actually discriminating against a minority.

Asian Americans might be smaller in population size, but they are doing much better in the US than any other ethnic group, including the Non-Hispanic Whites. The average median income of Asian Americans is much higher than that of the Non-Hispanic Whites.

There is affirmative action for the Afro Americans because historically they have been discriminated against. By any stretch of imagination, you can't say that about Non-Hispanic Whites. So giving preference to Non-Hispanic Whites compared to Asian Americans is just plain silly.

Beyond a point, your CV and GPA are the only things which should count.

Quote from: Daniel T. Gilbert, Patrick S. Malone. “The Correspondence Bias.” A.P.A., 215. 22. 26 Feb. 235. link=http://www.wjh.harvard.edu/~dtg/Gilbert%20&%20Malone%20(CORRESPONDENCE%20BIAS).pdf
Attribution theory's fundamental distinction leads quite naturally to its fundamental rule: When a behavior occurs in the presence of a sufficiently strong, facilitative force, an observer should not infer that the actor is predisposed to perform that behavior. Just as one should not conclude that a balloon that rises on a windy day is filled with helium, one cannot make unequivocal inferences about the abilities of an athlete, the convictions of a politician, or the mental health of a student when poor lighting, a roomful of opinionated voters, or sudden bad news may have induced their behaviors. In other words, one should not explain with dispositions that which has already been explained by the situation. This logical rule was first formalized by Jones and Davis (1965) as the law of noncommon effects and later extended and codified by Kelley (1967) as the discounting principle, which warns observers not to attribute an effect to any one causal agent (e.g., a disposition) when another plausible causal agent (e.g., a situational force) is simultaneously present. In other words, when people do precisely what the physical environment or the social situation demands, dispositional inferences are logically unwarranted.

Princeton has implemented an ad hoc “correction” for the varying upbringings of its prospective students.

Additionally, the U.S. government could be attempting to minimize the earnings of Chinese nationals.

The people who suffered the most from discrimination were the American Indians (natives). They don't receive much of affirmative action. Also, you can't say that just because some group suffered discrimination 200 years ago, they have the right to discriminate others now.

1. Martin Luther King, Jr. wasn’t alive "[two hundred] years ago” (bryant.coleman).

2. “[D]iscriminat[ion]” (bryant.coleman) could be construed as an expression of one’s freedom of (non-)assembly, (non-)association, and “speech” (i.e., expression).

I agree. My limited point was that Asian Americans should not be differentiated / discriminated against when compared to Whites just because they happen to be an affluent community.

Asian Americans might be smaller in population size, but they are doing much better in the US than any other ethnic group, including the Non-Hispanic Whites. The average median income of Asian Americans is much higher than that of the Non-Hispanic Whites.
