Picture where The Donald would be without affirmative action

They haven’t thought this push against affirmative action through very well.

Take away the preferences white boys have been getting and colleges will be swamped by women [1] and Asians [2].

Somehow, I don’t think that’s the outcome Sessions and Co. are looking for when they say they want colleges to purify themselves of “intentional discrimination.” [3]

Affirmative action for white males – the most thoroughgoing, long standing affirmative action program in existence.

As the kidz say, IKR.

Interesting study out of Sweden, [4], showing that the actual result when people are forced to hire women is that mediocre men get squeezed out. Which improves the whole organization and has the long term effect of facilitating intelligent hires from then on.

I suspect the same would be true for other minorities, because I’m a believer that 95% of any group are mediocre. Discriminate against anybody and you run through the 5% in your favored group pretty quick, and there you are, scraping the bottom of the barrel again. The evidence says we don’t have enough good people to be able to afford to throw any of them out.
