Real Talk: Black Bruins


Just in time for college app season!!!

A close friend and educator shared this HuffPo article about the lack of diversity at UCLA and this student’s mission to talk about it.

UCLA is not alone. I don’t have the stats on hand but Calif. may be struggling more due to the changes in the admissions guidelines. However, I still take issue with the contention that without considering race, African American students can not compete. I will allow that many under-represented students come from less rigorous academic backgrounds and that’s what Affirmative Action was supposed to contribute to the college admissions process. That being said, it is no longer applicable…so what now?…

To Sy: Again the youth force change through innovation and creativity, but I wonder about the severity of the ramifications. And there will be ramifications… But there always have been. So continue to fight.
