Attacking the Truth

Mismatching students with educational institutions is a formula for needless failures. The book “Mismatch,” by Sander and Taylor is a first-rate study of the hard facts. It shows, for example, that the academic performances of black and Hispanic students rose substantially after affirmative action admissions policies were banned in the University of California system.
Instead of failing at Berkeley or UCLA, these minority students were now graduating from other campuses in the University of California system. They were graduating at a higher rate, with higher grades, and now more often in challenging fields like math, science and technology.
Do the facts not matter to those who are denouncing Justice Scalia? Does the actual fate of minority students not matter to the left, as much as their symbolic presence on a campus?

We’ve proven over and over that Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. As well as untrustworthy.
And, that the levers of Gooferment are controlled by corrupt, possibly evil, politicians and bureaucrats.
So what can’t affirmative action be a new strategy by the KKK to keep minorities “in their place”. Destroy their top performers so nothing can change.
An “Unintended Consequence”?
I think not. Where evil is concerned, one has to look deep into the results to find the truth. Words are meaningless; actions and results speak volumes.
In this case, I’m listening and convinced.
