    It turns out that the children of poor whites have higher IQs than the children of rich blacks. Reversion to the mean
    on both ends.

    use out
    Educators have been trying for sixty years to eliminate the "achievement gap between black and white students for sixty years. No dice. You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

    they are-when I was at Yale, Legacies (and remember some legacies also had athletic preferences or affirmative action) had higher SAT scores and graduated with higher GPAs than non legacies. I knew four students who won the prize given to the senior that was considered the best overall student. All four were legacies. The RU in the class ahead of me was too, he and the guy he tied with a 4.0 and a BS/MS in four years both earned Rhodes Scholarships. The woman who was the winner of the Class of 1979-also a Rhodes, was a legacy. The guy in my class was seventh generation Yale

    Who cares if racial segregation is economically efficient or not, it's ethically abhorrent.

    Affirmative action is a form of racism. Fighting racism with racism doesn't seem to an answer to anything.

    Those decades ended prior to my birth, and I'm over half a century old. And dayam, does saying it like that make me feel old! Still, in the world I live in, qualified blacks (and almost if not virtually all other 'minorities') have not had this issue for pretty much all of my life, and with absolutely certainty, ALL of my adult life. Race relations in this country, prior to the left losing their collective mind in 2016 at the very concept of D. Trump even running for POTUS, had been improving and for most that had the qualifications of education and/or experience simply are not going to be passed over for a less (or UN-) qualified white guy because the person doing the hiring would rather leave a black but qualified person unemployed, and hire a complete doofus just because they're white, is a poor business choice, and businesses only have a finite number of boneheaded mistakes they can make like this until it puts 'em out of business.

    Answer to the Question in the title.

    Lawsuits happen as rogue clowns on the Left defy the equal treatment laws of the United States.

    MAKE THE EVIL RACIST DIVISIVE BASTARDS PAY: After SCOTUS Affirmative Action Victory, Edward Blum Is Suing Law Firms Over Their Diversity Programs.

    “If we learn of a law firm that has a policy similar to the ones we sued and they have not changed it, and a plaintiff wants to apply for that position who is disqualified because of their race, we will file a lawsuit against that law firm,” Blum said in a recent interview with The American Lawyer.

    'The SFFA decision left it up to colleges to create “fair and equitable admissions policies that do not discriminate on the basis of race.”'

    'Blum again emphasized the need for better recruitment. “Maybe we should recruit at Texas Tech, maybe we should recruit at Wyoming State [University of Wyoming] or the University of Maine or the South Texas College of Law,” he said. “Those schools have significantly more minorities, and those kids come from less advantaged economic backgrounds than Harvard or Stanford or Chicago. That would comport with the law.”'

    'After Blum dropped a recent lawsuit against Winston & Strawn, Bloomberg Law reported Blum said he was done suing law firms. Blum meant he was done for now. “If we learn of a law firm that has a policy similar to the ones we sued and they have not changed it, and a plaintiff wants to apply for that position who is disqualified because of their race, we will file a lawsuit against that law firm,” Blum said in a recent interview with The American Lawyer.'
