Boundaries for Affirmative Action
Yup. That’s the habit of academia… always in need of correction for favoring men:
A federal civil rights agency investigating possible gender discrimination in college admissions will subpoena data from more than a dozen mid-Atlantic universities, officials said Thursday.
The probe by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights is focusing on whether some colleges favor men by admitting them at higher rates than women, or by offering them more generous aid packages.
But hold on:
Women outnumber men nearly 60 percent to 40 percent in higher education nationally. The probe grew out of anecdotal evidence and news accounts that admissions officials are discriminating against women to promote a more even gender mix, said commission spokeswoman Lenore Ostrowsky.
Apparently, it was insufficiently understood that “diversity” and other such post-’60s shibboleths are race- and gender-specific. Hetero white men are overrepresented by their very existence.
