(National Sentinel) Ivy League Propagandists: Earlier this month Education Secretary Betsy DeVos announced that her department would be ditching the Obama administration’s race-based college admission guidelines.
The Constitution calls for equality. Federal statutes forbid the use of race as a qualifier for anything in the public and private sector.
So why would Obama authorize universities to bar students and admit students based on their skin color?
We think we know why. Obama and his Left-wing activist Cabinet saw racism underneath every rock and that all white people are inherent racists.
POTUS Trump and his administration don’t see things that way. They see good in Americans of all races, ethnicities, and nationalities. That’s why he believes that colleges and universities should not be discriminating against anyone on the basis of their skin color.
The administrators who run Left-wing Ivy League propaganda mills Harvard and Yale disagree. They believe they have a right to discriminate against some applicants in order to achieve some artificial racial balance within their student body.
They don’t care about the quality of the student applicant. What they see first and foremost is skin color — just the sort of thing minorities fought against for 100 years in America.
And so they plan on ignoring Trump administration guidelines.
As Breitbart News reported:
A report from Fox News claims that some Ivy League universities are doubling down on their affirmative action policies after receiving a “Dear Colleague” letter from Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos that requested they stop using race in university admissions. The continued use of race in university admissions practices put their federal funding at risk.
“It’s racial discrimination and it’s a quota. The quota today is against Asians, much like the quota back in the 1920s and 30s was against Jews,” Edward Blum, president of Students for Fair Admissions, said in a Fox News interview with Tucker Carlson. “You cannot remedy past discrimination with new discrimination, and that’s what colleges are doing.”
Both Harvard and Yale claim that they are simply exercising a right that was set out by the Supreme Court. Several Supreme Court cases have concluded that universities are free to use race as a factor in admissions processes as long as they don’t establish racial quotas.
“Harvard will continue to vigorously defend its right, and that of all colleges and universities, to consider race as one factor among many in college admissions, which has been upheld by the Supreme Court for more than 40 years,” Harvard spokesperson Rachael Dane said in a comment.
If colleges have an absolute right to discriminate, then why did the Obama administration feel the need to issue special guidelines in the first place?
Besides, this may all change once POTUS Trump’s next Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh, is confirmed. It should: The Constitution is clear on the issue of equality and non-discrimination, as is statutory law.
In the meantime, DeVos ought to move to cut off all federal funds from pricey Harvard and Yale.
Let them pay a price for their discrimination.
