Default 34% of white applicants falsely claimed to be a minority on their application

Race hustler Ibrahim X Kendi posted a link to a survey showing the prevalence of so-called white college applicants claiming to be members of a minority group in order to increase their chances of admission and of receiving financial aid. Kendi who has turned hawking the toxic CRT and braying about so-called systemic racism into a tenured professor position and in addition churns out books as well as a paid professional consultant failed to realize the survey undercuts the basic premise of his race baiting.

Quote:
Intelligent.com asked 1,250 white college applicants ages 16 and older if they lied on their application by indicating they were a racial minority.

The survey found that 34% of white Americans who’ve applied to college falsely claimed on their applications they’re a racial minority.

The number one reason why applicants faked minority status is to improve their chances of getting accepted (81%). Fifty percent also lied to benefit from minority-focused financial aid.
If America is such an evil racist country why would college applicants go out of their way to claim they were members of an oppressed group? Why, because it works.

Quote:
Seventy-seven percent of people who claimed to be a racial minority on their applications were accepted by the colleges to which they lied.

While other factors may have played a role in their acceptance, the majority of applicants who lied and were accepted (85%) believe that falsifying their racial minority status helped them secure admission to college.
Race hustlers like Kendi have no one to blame but themselves for creating an environment where being a member of a designated victim group comes with tangible benefits. The behavior of college applicants exposes white privilege as a myth. Kendi belatedly realized the survey undercut his prized theory and deleted his post.

The article doesn't explain how phony minority applicants were identified for the survey. Ominously the article hints that DNA tests might be used in the future to replace the classic octoroon or paper bag test adapting technology of today to serve classic Democrat racism.

Great point. You don't see many minorities claiming to be white for extra benefits or admission to schools or any other institution. Just more evidence that the left wing talking point about this country being an evil racist nation is nothing more than a scam.

Sounds to me like it pays to be a minority in this country. Is this why so many people are doing whatever then can to get here?

I heard that many are making sure they have kids so that they have to be separated, then they will get the grand prize.

some info and anecdotes to consider

I've filled out job applications in the past 7 years and wondered if my stating that i'm "African American" was going to hurt my chances.
(But frankly lately i've been MORE concerned that my age is a discriminating factor)
But I know others blacks that have felt the same.
And there are studies that have shown that resumes with the EXACT same information where the only difference are the names, eg. "Karen McDonell" vs "Shanikqua Jones", that "Karen McDonell" gets far more call backs for interviews.

I know black guys that have had phone interviews that went great then have gone in for in-person interviews and the interviewer comes out into the office waiting area smiling looking for the interviewee and is surprised that it's black guy sitting there and the interviewer's face literally drops. The in-person interview is perfunctory and they don't get the job.

I know a young extremely talented black artist and Graphic artist (full disclosure 15-20 years ago this happened) who's artist portfolio, when reviewed without him, got him in the door for an interview but rarely got them a job. One white interviewer told him to his face in a compassionate way that few graphic design firms hire blacks.

I know a HALF Asian(Chinese) guy who at a sales job interview just a few years ago was told to his face by an area supervisor of a national company that he didn't like hiring Asians because they weren't "aggressive" enough sales people. (the guy bench presses over 300 regularly and frankly has anger issues.)

Look, there's no doubt that some "affirmative action" type policies have created some unintended consequences but it DOES NOT negate the fact that their is still discrimination in the work place and probably in education at different level.

If everyone could be honest and measured in our responses about the situation rather than think and act on knee jerk defensive emotions we'd all be better off.
If more people would set aside the tribal assumptions that there's... NO fault on one side and ...ALL and INNATE fault on the other, then we might be able to CONTINUE the country's progress.
Seems to me If we could put down the twin lies that "there IS no problem!" or that "the problem is AS BAD as it's ever been!" we'd all be a lot better off.

because it was a study. I don't go after people who do studies on human behavior, medical treatments, car accidents, brands of cereal if they are legitimate and it looks like this is whether you like it or not. I imagine there were some studies somewhere on crime, on minority education in grammar school, on the KKK,...
It's not a headline. It may be to people who think CRT is the norm for history teaching in schools though
In other words those who buy in to bs.

No where in my post did I state or even insinuate that there are not still issues with racism in the public or private institutions. But there is plenty of evidence that it is going the other way now.

I don't remember the company, but just last week, I heard about some Wall Street firm stating that white males will be at the bottom of the list in their upcoming hiring practices. I'm sure there are many other companies doing the same.

Look, I could care less about ones skin color. I would love to see a world were we look at peoples character, their actions and how they treat others as a way to define them instead of their immutable characteristics. And the quicker we quit focusing on those immutable characteristics, the faster we can get to that point.

I understand completely. It for sure is harder being black, than white, no doubt about it. What you are talking about, I believe, is definitely discrimination, but not actually racism.

I also think discrimination is far more then just against black folks, it can
include all people regardless of skin color. Mental and Physical discrimination is probably at the top of the list. If I was hiring a salesperson, and one was a white guy with a shaved head, neck tats, and face piercings, but also had a good resume. And a well dressed black guy with no resume to speak of, I would hire the black guy. Did I discriminate? Yes!

Most people have hurdles in life, not all, but most, and if you play it smart you can get over those hurdles.
