The majority of Harvard’s incoming class is nonwhite https://t.co/lALwKgL7IM

We’ve come a long way, haven’t we? We’ve come from favoring people by their skin color to favoring people by a different skin color.
For the media, this is a “milestone” for a new Progressive, Marxist America.
“For the first time in Harvard University’s history, the majority of students accepted into the incoming freshman class are not white, a milestone for an institution that prides itself on educating future presidents, CEOs, and world leaders,” The Boston Globe declared.
Minority groups make up 50.8 percent of this year’s freshman class for the first time in the school’s 380-year history, the newspaper noted. This includes African-Americans, Hispanics, Asian-Americans, Native Americans, and Native Hawaiians.
Since Whites are still the majority in this country, it does look like racism to us.
The breakdown included 22.2 percent of Asian-American students, 14.6 percent of African-Americans, 11.6 percent of Hispanics or Latinos and 2.5 percent of Native American or Pacific Islanders, according to university statistics.
This is Affirmative Action – racism – but they will deny it.
“To become leaders in our diverse society, students must have the ability to work with people from different backgrounds, life experiences, and perspectives,” spokeswoman Rachael Dane told The Globe. “Harvard remains committed to enrolling diverse classes of students.”
Let’s hope grades, test scores and overall talent had something to do with selecting these students.
Currently there is a DoJ complaint against the university by Asian-Americans for discrimination. They had been refusing to accept Asians who earned a seat.
People might want to check out what is going on in all college campuses. For example at Perdue, they’ve converted all the math and science classes in the engineering department to social justice courses. At Evergreen, the climatology courses are social justice courses.
