Quote Of The Day

“I should note that some or all of these “preferred practices” [of how to better perform affirmative action at Universities] may be inhibited or prevented by the Supreme Court’s affirmative action jurisprudence, which allows preferences only for “diversity” purposes. Of course, no one really takes this seriously, least of all the Court itself; if this had been taken seriously, Grutter would have had to come out the other way, because the district court found as a factual matter that despite Michigan’s denials, the law school gave preferences only to select Hispanics (Mexican-Americans and mainland Puerto Ricans). Taking the tenth Mexican-American over the first Cuban or Columbian-American may make sense from a redistributivist perspective, but it hardly contributes to “diversity.” Nevertheless, universities must at least pretend to obey the law.”” — David Bernstein, professor at the George Mason University School of Law, blogging at Volokh Conspiracy blog

  • Oh, please. If only you were as worried about the current Administration pretending to obey the law.

    Why this obsession with AA and ‘elite’ universities?

  • I’m curious Pedro, what are your thoughts on this paper?

  • I could write a book. I could even write about in in my blog, if only the damn account was working.

    I stopped thinking about the subject years ago. A mostly self congralutoy academic circle jerk hovers around it. It seems like too much energy spent on a matter that impacts such a small group of people while matters of more pressing need are given short shrift or ignored. It feels like ivory tower living, a bit out of touch of how most people live and what is more impactful in their lives.

    In the scheme of things the legality/morality of elective wars is a much more important matter, for example, but I don’t see that tackled or given the same attention as AA. Why not?

    I don’t see a problem with defining AA or even the possibility of doing without it altogether. But when the topic is discussed I don’t really see the effort of seeing ideas to their end conclusion (e.g. Get rid of AA. Fine. Is on the basis that we’re a merit based society? Have we always been a merit based society? Do we really live in one? Does not racism exist? What of socioeconomic discrimation? Etc., etc.)

    It’s an important subject but not on the level of topics such as the Patriot Act, FISA, the war on drugs, the war on porn, etc. It’s not really high on my list, and I doubt it’s high on 99% of Americans list’s either.

  • Not high on my list either…my main thing is probably educational vouchers. 🙂

  • Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
