Regents of the University of California v. Bakke
Regents of the University of California v. Bakke, case decided in 1978 by the U.S. Supreme Court. The Court held in a closely divided decision that race could be one of the factors considered in choosing a diverse student body in university admissions decisions. The Court also held, however, that the use of quotas in such affirmative action programs was not permissible; thus the Univ. of California, Davis, medical school had, by maintaining a 16% minority quota, discriminated against Allan Bakke,. 1940–, a white applicant. The legal implications of the decision were clouded by the Court’s division. Bakke had twice been rejected by the medical school, even though he had a higher grade point average than a number of minority candidates who were admitted. As a result of the decision, Bakke was admitted to the medical school and graduated in 1982.

So, let’s say someone used this court case as evidence that white people can experience racism. LOL, LET’S JUST SAY.

This is hilarious for several reasons, not including the fact that it’s the KKK trying to adopt a highway.

4. I’m not making any of this up.
ESPN has fired the writer who wrote a headline using the phrase “chink in the armor” to refer to Jeremy Lin, the network said Sunday morning.
BUT I hope the network puts in more checkpoints to keep this from happening in the future and by “checkpoints” I mean diversity in the editorial room.
They need a Jamal/Jamilah.
Only my #TWIBIU people will get that joke…
“My wife is Asian, would never intentionally say anything to disrespect her and that community,” Bretos said.
Good to know you’ll use your wife as a get out of jail free card! Because that’s love, y’all…
A new study of more than 2,200 patients treated at the Emory Transplant Center showed that black patients with ESRD (End Stage Renal Disease) had a 59% lower rate of kidney transplant than whites at this southeastern center.
Other disturbing findings by this study include the following: after referral approximately 60% of Caucasian patients began the evaluation process, compared to 51% of African Americans; there were no significant differences in the proportion of patients completing the evaluation; and now the most disturbing, 71% of whites were placed on a waiting list and 30% got the new organ, compared to 59% of blacks placed on the same list out of which only 18% got the new organ. And if you think this is it, it gets worse. The study also showed that black patients spend nearly a year longer on the waiting list than white patients and also, it takes longer for blacks to be referred after diagnosis than for whites, about 200 days longer on average.
