Georgia has a scholarship program where any student who maintains at least a “B” average in high school gets money to attend state college. More kids (black and white) are college-bound now.
Opponents are complaining that actually using academics instead of race as a basis for money and admissions is bad for blacks.
The implications of their argument are amazing. Are they actually claiming that black students can’t handle fair competition? Do they really think we’d be better off reducing the number of college applicants? Can they honestly believe that an academically less-qualified black student should be accepted over a more-qualified white student?
This is crazy. Shouldn’t we be color blind?
