    This is so the Blaeks and others disadvantaged diverse people can get 'A's when they deserved a ''C.' This way you cannot say you did not hire a minority because they had low GPA. That would be discrimination. When I think it cannot get more fucked up...it does

    If this took place of a diversity based admission policy at the college level, I'd be for it. I think it would change things so that a lot would not get in to the school to begin with in order to take advantage of this. And whatever their grade would be, it would ultimately not effect me and doesn't take my "spot".

    If we're talking about classes grading on a curve - then I'd have a problem.

    And this happens already anyway with athletes - so it's not a big stretch.

    Why not give everyone a PhD from the school of your choice. We can all be the doctors our moms wanted us to be.

    Don't get too worried.. This is Madison, Wisconsin, so you're only talking about a couple dozen students..4 or 5 basketball players and maybe a 15 wide receivers, rb's, and db's from the football team.

    I had a prof in college who was asked about how he felt about football and basketball players who didn't show up for class. He had an interesting take. He said that the school should just give everyone a degree on their first day. Four years later, if they've paid all of their tuition, etc, then activate the degree whether they went to class or not. It would weed out the dead weight and they would not interfere with the students who who actually wanted to learn something. (This was many years ago, so he could not have foreseen online universities like the University of Phoenix.)

    I had to look up their demos. You ain't kidding. 600+ blaeks in a school of 28k.

    It's always the pastiest places interested in this guilt horseshit.

    We must feel sorry for people with pigment in their skin. That pigment restricts brain function, and it's our job to make up for their lack of effort.

    I don't understand why minorities aren't absolutely offended and insulted by shit like this and affirmative action. It's like handicapping someone, saying "well because you're black we need to give you a head start and a little edge so you can compete with whitey".

    There was a CT town where this happened at the fucking FIRE DEPARTMENT. We are talking about saving lives. The whites scored far higher on their tests whereas the blacks and Hispanics did far worse. So, instead of giving the promotions to those best qualified, whitey got the shaft and the underachievers got the edge.

    Pathetic.

    So true. Years ago I read a book about Custer- there was a bit in there pointing out that the further people lived away from the Indians the "nobler" they thought they were.

    The most frightening thing is that liberals actually want it to change this way. It's not even a result or consequence of other motives, it's what they want.

    It's already happening. If you think they go to all that trouble to get minorities onto campus, only to see them fail, you're out of your mind. Not every test or term paper is blind graded. They get a helping hand all the way through.

    Let's be honest, blaeks need the help. There's no way they can compete otherwise.

    And it doesn't really matter because employers will just start using a standardized test for applicants. That will give them all the reason they need to weed out the morons. So this is just another liberal feel-good idea that has no real benefit.
