“Diversity” (non-White) students have been getting a leg up into the undergraduate programs of Ivy League schools for many decades now, but apparently not enough has been done to get them into graduate schools. Since these “diversity” students are not as qualified or intelligent as their peers who actually earned their spots, they have been unable to effectively compete for graduate programs that require Graduate Records Examination (GRE) standardized testing. This has caused a number of Ivy League universities – Brown, Princeton, and Cornell – to drop these “biased” requirements for many graduate programs.
Princeton Graduate School associate dean for access, diversity, and inclusion Renita Miller cited a need for “intellectual diversity” within graduate programs, as well as the importance of “demographic diversity.” She insists that doing away with the requirement will help Princeton to achieve its goal “to identify, attract and develop the most promising individuals from as many segments of society as possible.”
“Universities like Princeton have done a good job at expanding and diversifying their undergraduate populations,” Miller added. “If we want to make similar strides on the graduate level, we must find new ways to recruit and enroll graduate students who may be the first in their families to attend college, and from low-income and underrepresented backgrounds.”
The assertion is that one way to do this is to do away with standardized testing, because, as Princeton director of graduate studies for classics Johannes Haubold puts it, “there is concern that standardized tests are culturally biased in favor of certain groups; and that they end up testing primarily how good one is at taking tests.” Haubold also brought up resource concerns, noting that some students can afford coaching for standardized tests while others cannot.
Brown University has decided to drop the GRE requirements for a number of doctoral programs in order to “attract a wider pool of applicants” and “reduce barriers that discourage some students from groups historically underrepresented in higher education and from low-income backgrounds from applying for admission.”
The erroneous presumption is that everyone is born equal, it’s just that some groups (primarily Whites with privilege) have acquired unfair advantages that allow them to better in school. This all stems from the anthropology of jew Franz Boaz and his disciples, which has led many people to truly believe that race is a social construct. So any inequality in outcome requires rectification in the form of diversity quotas and affirmative action, to level the playing field.
The truth of the matter is that the different races are not created equal, but saying as much will get you fired and stripped of your honors. This is exactly what happened to Nobel prize winner Dr. Watson, who stated the obvious about African IQs and spoke about the dim prospects of the dark continent as their population boom continues unabated. When the US still had some sense, the average IQ of many African countries would have fallen within the “moron” category (51-70), far below the IQ of Koko the gorilla.
To be socially acceptable and politically correct, Dr. Watson should instead have celebrated the incredible amount of “enrichment” we can expect from the growing pool of African geniuses. These Black scholars deserve to take the spots of young White people at every Western university, as they are the future of our world. Thanks jews!
