Many students support affirmative action, in an effort to promote diversity. They argue that race-based preferences “level the playing field” for disadvantaged minorities. However, these same students refused to sign our petition to apply such policies to the basketball team. At UC Riverside — where the video was filmed — 10/11 active players on the team are African American. Why not use affirmative action to promote diversity there?
I still wonder if this young fellow sees the inconsistency of his “feelings” about affirmative action.. He contends it’s ludicrous for the basketball team be subject to “affirmative action race based quota’s””…. He claims the BEST players should compete freely for positions on the team. But.. when the same race based quota question is posed about admissions to the college classroom… he goes all mushy- feels different about that and somehow forgot the argument he used for selecting players for the basketball team. Hmm.. The perfect example of political indoctrination overcoming critical thinking- a good example of how our educational system has been hijacked by the far left and purposely diminish the critical thinking skills of American students- and that applies to ALL races.
