The entrenched regime of racial preferences in American academia is a fit subject for study by the nation’s top psychiatrists.
It’s never OK to discriminate on the basis of race in American life, except when it is. Schools lionize the 1964 Civil Rights Act in their classrooms, and then violate it in their admissions offices. They will obfuscate, sneak around and lie, all to preserve their treasured preferences so they can make the admissions numbers look right — regardless of the consequences.
This system is bad for the moral fiber of academic institutions, bad for the ideal of race blindness in America, and bad, the latest research suggests, for the minorities supposedly benefiting. It is good only for salving the guilty, race-obsessed consciences of university administrators and appeasing the PC gods and the usual interest groups.
Question: I am relatively young, healthy and I take very good care of myself. Yet I am in a group health insurance plan with lots of older people, many of whom do not appear to care about their health at all. Will my rates go down once some of these people retire?
Answer: I don’t think you’re going to like this answer.
In recent weeks, Mitt Romney has tacitly abandoned his strategy of making this election a simple referendum on President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy.
The New York Times reports that “rather than focusing on President Obama, they plan to stress that voters need to make a choice between two men with different visions of the world.”
This means “Mr. Romney intends to hit the White House with a series of arguments — on energy, health care, taxes, spending and a more direct attack on President Obama’s foreign policy record, rather than focusing like a laser beam on jobs and the economy.”
