Affirmative Action is not prejudiced against Asian-Americans, it is the white admissions people that are prejudice against Asian-Americans.
This. And everyone else who doesn't look like them.

Reality is the most prominent schools in USA are private and will NEVER be public. Either you got the cash or you don't. The rest is a political dabbling that won't make any difference. Equal rights in education? Not in a million years :lol:

It's not about the cash, it's about being accepted based on ones grades. Acceptance is not for sale, (well, not anymore it isn't) which is why the parents and school officials are in trouble. Get a fuckin' clue! Damn!

Officials are in trouble but not the entire Ivy League & NCAA. They will survive. Rich parents will survive. Officials are replaceable. Money will keep flowing. :wavey: Did I forget about something? :shrug:

We'll see how "different" they are when all of this is over. Who/what will you sheepishly accept and laugh off next?
If anyone's a different species, it's you.

From Pre-K On, U.S. Schools Privilege the Already Privileged

Eisa Ulen, Truthout

While the recent college admissions scandal aroused widespread public disdain for practices like large-donation-based admissions, less attention has been given to the greater problem of school funding policies that disadvantage low-income communities as early as pre-K. In fact, current public policies reflect a harsh but centuries-old truth: Children in the U.S. are not valued equally.

Ivy League & NCAA will remain privileged no matter what happens. I suspect you're not sending your children to Yale or Harvard? Neither am I.

A plea deal for these celebs is already on the table? How shocking :lol:

An “Embarrassed” Olivia Jade Wants To Rebuild Her Brand

April 6, 2019 / Posted by: J Harvey



Current daughter of privilege and future daughter of possible jailbirds Olivia Jade is “embarrassed” by her mom Lori Loughlin’s alleged role in the college admissions scandal. However, despite the setbacks that have virtually destroyed Olivia’s gig as an “influencer,” she wants to rebuild her brand. Like a phoenix from the entitled, I-didnt-even-want-to-go-to-college-anyway-you-guys ashes, her vapid empire will rise again! Stronger and more insipid than ever!

People reports that Olivia Jade is simmering with rage over how her mom and dad Mossimo Giannulli have pretty much ruined her life by allegedly paying her way into the University of Southern California.

“Olivia is still distraught and embarrassed. She hasn’t been home much,” a source tells PEOPLE of the popular YouTuber. “She is very angry with her parents. She just wants to figure out how she can rebuild her brand.”
Olivia is reportedly barely acknowledging her parents in person and is instead spending time with her friends and her man while blaming her parents for causing her to lose her sponsorship deals with TRESemmé, Sephora, Estee Lauder, and HP Printers. What was that last one? Does she even know what a printer is? One might imagine that she thinks the words on the paper just magically appear because she’s rich (for now) and pretty.

Olivia Jade, who was vocal about her indifferent attitude toward school before the scandal broke, “blames her parents for everything,” the source adds.

“She would have never gone along with it if she thought this would happen. Her thing is that she trusted her parents,” the source says. “Olivia spends most of her time with close friends and her boyfriend.” (She is dating model/musician Jackson Guthry.)
Nevertheless, you can’t keep a sickeningly privileged girl down for long. The brave little heiress plans to claw her way back to the Instagram “influencer” top.

The source adds: “Olivia had her own life and business. She was always very driven and worked very hard to achieve what she had. This was her passion. She was honest about that she didn’t really care about school. But her business, she was always very serious about. She most certainly will find a way to start over again. She isn’t someone that gives up easily.”
Let’s say a prayer for Olivia Jade to triumph over the only adversity she’s probably ever encountered in her life beyond the maid refusing to carry her bodily over to the infinity pool from the manse “cuz’, like, there’s cement and I just had a mani-pedi. JUST DO IT, SLAVE.

Stanford expels student linked to $500,000 donation to sailing program

By Eric Levenson, CNN
Updated 12:36 PM ET, Mon April 8, 2019



(CNN) Stanford University expelled a student who put false material in their college application and was linked to a $500,000 donation from the charity at the heart of the college admissions scam.

"We determined that some of the material in the student's application is false, and, in accordance with our policies, have rescinded admission," Stanford said in an update on its website. "Any credits earned have also been vacated. The student is no longer on Stanford's campus."

The student is not named in the statement or in court documents.

Stanford sailing coach John Vandemoer pleaded guilty last month to conspiracy to commit racketeering for arranging bribes of $110,000 and $160,000 to the sailing program in exchange for falsely designating two applicants as sailing recruits. Neither of the students had competitive sailing experience, the criminal complaint states.

The money was funneled from wealthy parents to a charity run by Rick Singer, who then directed the payments to Vandemoer, according to the complaint.

However, neither of those students completed the application process, so neither were admitted nor enrolled at the school, Stanford said.


USC says students connected to cheating scheme will be denied admission

A third student, though, was associated with a contribution to Stanford's sailing program from the charity central to the scam, known as Key Worldwide Foundation, Stanford said.

"The contribution was made several months after the student was admitted to Stanford. The student had no recommendation from the former sailing coach, or any other coach, and has not at any time had an affiliation with the Stanford sailing program or any other Stanford athletic team," Stanford said.

Stanford said KWF contributed a total of $770,000 to the sailing program in the form of three separate gifts. Given that the two students who did not enroll were associated with gifts of $110,000 and $160,000 to the sailing program, the third student was therefore associated with a gift of $500,000.

Stanford is the second school to expel a student as part of the fallout of the college admissions scam. Yale University kicked out a student two weeks ago whose family paid $1.2 million to get her admitted as a fake soccer player.
