Clarence Page on the Affirmative Racist Fraud

Clarence Page comments on something I noted a few days ago:

(Based upon)....census data by immigrants from Africa averaged the highest educational attainment of any population group in the country, including whites and Asians.

One wonders why "the man" doesn't keep them down...

But, as Walter Benn Michaels, a professor of English at the University of Illinois, Chicago, writes in his book The Trouble With Diversity, the original intent of affirmative action morphed in the 1970s from reparations for slavery into the promotion of a broader virtue: "diversity." Since then, it no longer seems to matter how many of our colleges' black students have slavery in their families. It only matters that they're black.

Whoa, Clarence, way to let the cat out of the bag....

Clarence Page is notoriously frustrating however. Just when he's about to admit that the Great Society liberalism he was raised on was and is a dismal failure, he just can't do it.
