The Department of Education’s Civil Rights Division is putting an end to the discrimination inherent in Texas Tech University’s admission policies.
The Wall Street Journal broke the news today that the Trump administration reached an agreement with Texas Tech University in February to effectively end the use of racial quotas in the school’s admissions. This formally concludes a 14-year federal investigation into Texas Tech’s use of affirmative action.
This is the first instance where the Trump administration directly intervened to convince a university to change their racist admissions policy. It is speculated that Education Secretary Betsy Devos could be expanding this to other universities, but they have not yet released an official statement regarding this deal and its potential impact on other schools.
This isn’t the only way the Trump administration is pushing for equality on campus. In July, Trump’s Education Department removed guidelines enacted by the Obama administration encouraging schools to navigate around the law to give minority students special privileges in the name of diversity.
“Learning environments comprised of students from diverse backgrounds provide an enhanced educational experience for individual students,” the Obama-era guidance read. “By choosing to create this kind of rich academic environment, educational institutions help students sharpen their critical thinking and analytical skills.”
Obama’s platitudes imply that affirmative action helps minorities, but a case in Harvard that Trump’s administration is championing shows that flies in the face of the conventional wisdom on this issue.
Trump’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is supporting a group of Asian-American students who believe they were discriminated against by Harvard University on a racial basis. Although Harvard denies the effect of their policies, Trump’s DOJ has compiled evidence showing that Asian-Americans are put at a systemic disadvantage due to racist affirmative action policies.
“The evidence, moreover, shows that Harvard provides no meaningful criteria to cabin its use of race; uses a vague ‘personal rating’ that harms Asian-American applicants’ chances for admission and may be infected with racial bias; engages in unlawful racial balancing; and has never seriously considered race-neutral alternatives in its more than 45 years of using race to make admissions decisions,” DOJ attorneys wrote in their statement of interest about the case.
It is clear that President Trump is serious about ending racism in the educational system. Because of Trump’s policy changes, education will become more of a meritocracy rather than a guilt-induced liberal giveaway to certain privileged victim groups.
Memorial Fund for Retired Saint Louis Police Captain Murdered by Looters Passes $50K in Minutes
David Dorn was murdered by looters.
A memorial fund raising money for the family of a retired St. Louis police captain who was murdered by looters during Monday’s race riots has raised $50,000 as of Monday night, just hours after it was created by Jack Posobiec.
Dorn, who retired from the St. Louis Police Department in 2007, was found dead around 2:30AM on Tuesday morning. Surveillance camera footage revealed that he had been shot and killed by a looter as he was defending Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry.
His wife, Ann Marie Dorn, who still works for the police department, stated that David was a friend of the pawn shop’s owner and would secure the premises when the burglar’s alarm went off at the property. Dorn was 77 years old.
President Donald Trump mourned for Dorn in a Tuesday Facebook post, pointing to the senior citizen as a tragic casualty of the nationwide race riots that have resulted in widespread death and destruction following the death of George Floyd.
Our highest respect to the family of David Dorn, a Great Police Captain from St. Louis, who was viciously shot and…
The Ethical Society of Police in St. Louis described Dorn’s death as a senseless, vicious murder in the pursuit of stolen goods.
“He was murdered by looters at a pawnshop. He was the type of brother that would’ve given his life to save them if he had to. Violence is not the answer, whether it’s a citizen or officer.”
Posobiec, who created the fund in Dorn’s memory, expressed his surprise that so many Americans proved generous enough to donate in the name of his memory. The widespread support from across the nation may be indicate of a silent majority incensed at the senseless death of the senior citizen, who had served his community with distinction in his career in law enforcement for more than 30 years.
We just broke 50k for this man's family
I've never seen anything like this https://t.co/WT7xMk4ZMW
