College Admission When You’re White, Privileged And Righteous

Books - photo by ChrisRecently the Supreme Court punted on an affirmative action case, Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin, sending the case back to the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals. Abigail Fisher, a white woman, applied to the school in 2008 when she was a high school senior. She was rejected, and because, well, she’s white and the school is not color blind, according to Fisher, that means her rejection was discriminatory. You know, there’s a lot of that going around these days. People born into white privilege are increasingly screwed in today’s America. They don’t stand a chance!
