Leading Universities are Still Pursuing Anti-White Admissions Policies Despite Supreme Court’s Ruling Undermining Affirmative Action

Since the Supreme Court issued its ruling in the Fair Admissions v. Harvard, which determined that admissions decisions at Harvard and the University of North Carolina infringed on the 14th Amendment’s equal protection guarantees and Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act — which bans the recipients of federal dollars to discriminate “on the ground of race, color, or national origin” — elite universities are devising ways to discriminate against whites in their admissions processes.

A few hours after the Supreme Court made its landmark decision, Harvard’s new President Claudine Gay put out a video message that hinted at Harvard’s commitment to maintaining pro-diversity policies. 

“For nearly nine years, Harvard vigorously defended our admissions process and our belief that we all benefit from learning, living, and working alongside people of different backgrounds and experiences,” Gay stated. “We will comply with the court’s decision, but it does not change our values. We continue to believe—deeply—that a thriving, diverse intellectual community is essential to academic excellence and critical to shaping the next generation of leaders.”

“Diverse” is the leftist buzzword used to label anti-white policies that are used to increase black, Hispanic, and Native American representation at white’s expense. 

Other top-tier universities in America have followed in the footsteps of Harvard.

Columbia University spokesman Ben Chang stated, “Diversity is a positive force across every dimension of Columbia, and we can and must find a durable and meaningful path to preserve it.”

Ron Daniels, president of Johns Hopkins University, published a statement proclaiming: “In the coming days, we will closely examine the court’s decisions and assess its implications for our admissions programs. Over the last several months, we have been reviewing the approaches taken by universities in states where a referendum or statute has restricted the use of race as one of many factors in a holistic admissions process.”

These universities are clearly crafting strategies to circumvent the recent Supreme Court ruling.

One way they will work around the ruling is by using the application essay where students can reveal their race and other characteristics about themselves. 

Chief Justice John Roberts, author of the majority opinion in this decision, appeared to have given his approval to the use of application essays filled with racial topics: “Nothing in this opinion should be construed as prohibiting universities from considering an applicant’s discussion of how race affected his or her life, be it through discrimination, inspiration, or otherwise.”

While Justice Roberts cautioned universities to not use the essays to circumvent the Supreme Court’s ruling (“the student must be treated based on his or her experiences as an individual—not on the basis of race”), several universities have already set up “overcome adversity” as a proxy for race.

In the case of the University of California–Davis’s medical school, it grants a preference to students claiming a “disadvantaged” background. According to an Epoch Times, 84% of Davis’s medical school entering in the fall of 2023 claimed to have faced economic and social hardships while growing up. As a result of this policy, the upcoming class is 14%  black and 30% Hispanic (blacks and Latinos comprise 6% and 39% of California’s general population, respectively). 

Another way colleges will try to circumvent this ruling is by getting rid of requirements for prospective students to submit their ACT or SAT scores. 

These tests generally provide reliable metrics for gauging a student’s ability to carry out undergraduate or graduate level work. But when these requirements are dropped, it allows for otherwise low-scoring minority applicants to get admitted into universities while more qualified white students are left hanging. 

Roughly 80% of colleges and universities — which includes all 8 Ivy League institutions and other top-tier institutions such as Stanford and Rice—have already made ACT and SAT results optional metrics in their admissions processes.

These institutions will likely pursue other measures to ensure that whites are fully excluded. Universities in modern-times are nothing more than leftist think tanks rife with anti-white sentiment. 

Such degeneracy can be seen at lower levels of education as well. 

This type of rot will only ensure that future generations’ heads are filled with leftist drivel. The Right must recognize the importance of controlling the education system. Before privatization can be discussed, the Right must ensure that schools — ranging from elementary schools to universities — are thoroughly purged of leftist influence. 

Allowing the Left to continue warping the minds of our youth is just asking for them to achieve full-blown hegemony in the long-term.
