Do you actually look at America and say "blacks have it easy"?

Patrick is mad because more competant minorities got what he felt he is owed due to his being white.

Apparently, only the competent can spell 'competent' correctly.

(Or, am I the guy who shit his pants on 9/11 and spent the entire GWOT behind the safety of his monitor?  I can never remember.)

What do you think "diversity" means in practice?

You may well be right.

Or, she may be so bound up in her mission she's completely lost the plot.

Does happen.

I assume she's not as dumb as a frog, Goldsmith's is a classy place.

Well to me in this context, it's fairly simple.

Rank the applicants purely on intellectual aptitude, and try to ensure that any bias -any bias - in admissions is overcome so that regardless of race, creed, income, the places available are filled by the poeple who'll benefit most, and therefore, society gets the best deal.


If that means, for whatever reason, a predominantly white, or black, or female student body on any given coursr, so be it.

Would you support that?

Well, she is just playing into the hands of English people who do not want more non-English coming to their country.*


*Not, of course, that the natives of an area do not have a right to want to keep out foreigners if they so choose.
