University Of California No Longer Considers Test Scores Like SAT And ACT As Part Of Their Admissions, Because Those Tests Are Inherently Racist

The headline really says it all. The University Of California will no longer look at SAT or ACT test scores as part of their admittance process. This is largely due to a lawsuit against the university claiming that these tests typically show lower test scores for minority groups while whites typically have the highest scores.

They claim it’s both racist and wealth related as students who come from families with money are able to take special tutoring and better prepare for the tests to score higher.

We are no fans of these tests or the higher education system in general, but there is truth to this. The wealthy will have a leg up. That doesn’t stop the less wealthy from competing, but that’s the system. We don’t know the answer unfortunately.

At the same time, this lawsuit and turn-about is just another way of saying minorities just aren’t smart enough for schooling. That is something we disagree whole-heartedly with.

We don’t know what will come of this, but hopefully it’s something good and fair. Unfortunately cases like this only tip the scale one way or another in the end. Finding middle ground usually never happens.

The University put out a PDF on their ruling to cancel the test scores as part of their admissions process. You can read the full PDF at the link here. Be forewarned they use word “diversity” 73 times in their ruling.

Well, that’s California for you! The next thing for them to do is PASS all failing grades — how will they explain that???? Enough is enough!!! What is wrong with these people. Can they NOT stand up for anyone who is smart and wants to continue their education. There are students who get into college on scholarships. They have joined the ranks of others turning this country into a third-world country by lowering the requirements. There is NOTHING racist in the tests required by colleges/universities! Only those who really WANT to further their education and have the ambition to do whatever it takes to get into them, needs to have to meet certain criteria otherwise a college degree will mean absolutely NOTHING in time.

What idiot would even want to attend a college/university without standards of achievement? Oh wait, what a dumb question. Those who cannot qualify academically.
College/university degrees used to watered down, now use them for the shortage we had at the beginning of the pandemic…TP.

Diversity advances at the expense of merit. Our society overcorrects again, while equality measures are absent.

So, let me see> . . they are saying because some whites can afford tutoring to prepare for the SAT and ACT so this in and of itself makes it racist? What about those whites who are economically disadvantaged and can’t afford tutoring? What about those who can afford to retake the test several times and get tutoring -vs- those who can only afford it once, or twice? Does that make it racist? Why is everything that is a disadvantage to minorities make it racist? We live in a country that has from its inception allowed economically disadvantaged individuals to rise above their family incomes to become presidents, CEO’s, business owners, astronauts, Supreme Court Justices, doctors, teachers, etc., etc. Even minorities in every one of the above positions have held those posts. This needs to stop and I am sure you as well have heard from people who represent every race that America has afforded the opportunity to attain any position a person has wanted. The MSM is to blame for giving too many of these self-appointed advocates a platform. Stop the divisiveness!!!
