Weirdly enough, this is one of the most believable stories we’ve seen in 2019. Of course this happened…
The College Board is now introducing an “adversity score” for the SAT exam in an effort to level the playing field for racial minorities applying for college.
Progressives in academia and the media have long argued that the reason there is so much demographic discrepancy in college admissions is that growing up as a racial minority just comes with unfair environmental advantages. This has been taken to such an extreme, that Harvard University is now being sued by a collection of Asian Americans, who are being rejected on the grounds that there are just too many Asian people in Ivy League schools.
Now, with a new “adversity score”, admissions offices will allegedly have a more “fair” way to evaluate college applicants. Forget merit. Forget the white kid who grew up in Appalachia under a single-parent home and managed to thrive while living in an area known for absurd levels of opioid addiction. It’s only about what you can see.
This is racism, pure and simple.
