I'm half Mexican and could have used AA to my advantage, but haven't. I look at the stats for the top 5 schools and it's pretty obvious who the minorities are. Lower LSATs but often fairly decent GPAs. You're not smarter, you're just taking advantage of entrenched racism. The free ride continues. To all those white disadvantaged students out their, yes, please, continue to look upon them with scorn.
Yeah because it's an issue that many people tend to agree with the OP on. Obviously, saying that they should be scorned while throwing some kind of fit crosses the line and should be noted, but responding in the same way can be seen as taking a strike against people who oppose AA in general. Also, calling somebody Mexican because they are, according to the OP, half-Mexican is an offensive statement. Who's to say what the OP should identify as? On top of that, Jillibean ignores the fact that some 10% of the Mexican population is white while simultaneously insulting him/her. The OP might very well be white as well. Both the OP and the replies were inappropriate, but I thought that the particular vitriol in the replies exceeded that of the OP. Anyway, there is a separate forum for this, as noted, so the OP should go there.
I didn't say you should apologize to anybody. I said your love of grouping people into racial categories and calling them stupid for disagreeing is just as rude as somebody saying they scorn minorities who benefit from AA.
Those were just the kind of replies I would expect, thank you. Further, I expect the guy who got 175 on his LSAT and didn't get into Stanford to view the AA beneficiary who got in with a 165 with complete indignation. Don't talk to me about soft factors. Don't talk to me and say, well that's how it works. It's cheating. I did look at several other posts. Can I apply as a URM if I'm only 10% black? I'm finished with this topic, it's nauseating. Please don't reply, you just look dumb.
