SCOTUS got it right with their ruling on Affirmative Action and Tuition Relief. Affirmative action is so wrong and ridiculous—why should someone get preferential treatment because of their skin color or ethnic heritage? Jon Wang, an Asian-American student had a 1590 SAT score (with a perfect score on math) and a 4.65 grade average. He applied to 6 elite schools and was turned down. His guidance counselors actually warned him that he may have a tough time because he was Asian. How ludicrous is that? Why should a student who worked hard and achieved high test scores and grades be kept out because their ethnicity doesn’t fit into the DEI model? Also, when you utilize affirmative action you are stating that the DEI specific minority groups are not smart or hard working enough to get in on their own merit. THAT IS SO WRONG, DEGRADING AND DISRESPECTFUL! Of course the left responds with their usual “white supremacy” blah blah —-it’s so disgusting. As soon as you disagree with the far left, you are a white supremacist.
Of course, Obama had to chime in. You know he will never miss a chance to play the race card. He stated “But for generations of students who had been systematically excluded from most of America’s key institutions — it gave us the chance to show we more than deserved a seat at the table. In the wake of the Supreme Court’s recent decision, it’s time to redouble our efforts”
Well if minorities are systematically excluded, then why do we have so many AWESOME minorities in high positions in all professions of our society doing AWESOME things?
And instead of Obama’s idea of redoubling efforts for Affirmative Action in colleges, what about the high school students redoubling their efforts in school? How about parents redoubling their efforts to instill educational values and a work ethic into their children? How about having a mindset of earning something instead of having it handed to you by playing the victim card? There was a black doctor in Illinois who said he had 2 medical degrees—-he stated that he was NEVER held back from any institution in his effort to achieve them. Basically, this man worked hard to get where he is. He also probably had parents who instilled good values such as hard work, the value of an education and choosing to be a decent human being. Gee, what a novel idea! Work hard and earn your success.
As far as college tuition is concerned, why should taxpayers pay for someone else’s tuition? Why should someone who never went to college have to pay somebody’s tuition? I myself, as well as many others, paid our own loans off. I would not expect anyone to pay mine or would want anyone to. It’s called being responsible and accountable. But do you think Biden’s administration really cares about the people with school loans? The Dems who supported this probably realized that this wouldn’t go through, but the optics look good to get votes. They will just blame it on the conservatives in the Supreme Court.
Again, SCOTUS got it right on both issues and I’m willing to bet that the majority of America agrees with them.
