Ward Connerly comments on Possible DOJ Investigation of Admissions

“It is often said that we are a nation of laws. Well, the law, in Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, states clearly that recipients of taxpayer money will lose those funds if they discriminate against people on the basis of race, color or ethnicity, as well as other factors. Despite this law, virtually every university in our nation discriminates against Asian and white students in their quest for “diversity,” which is code for more black and Hispanic students.
Over the years, some of us have appealed, unsuccessfully, to the Supreme Court, to rule that it is unconstitutional for universities to use race and ethnicity in university admissions. If reports are accurate, it appears that the Department of Justice will be embarking on a project that will challenge this discrimination. Hallelujah, praise the Lord! This is long overdue.
I enthusiastically applaud the Trump administration and, specifically, AG Jeff Sessions, for their efforts to respect the law, pursue the principle of merit and to be true to our creed of equal treatment under the law for every person.”
