Re: James Kirkpatrick’s article Can’t Smear The Greer: Turn Back Campus Totalitarianism—By Abolishing Affirmative Action

From: A Dallas Reader [Email him]

James Kirkpatrick writes

Donald Trump needs to directly target Affirmative Action, not just because it’s economically harmful, not just because it hurts whites and Asians, and not just because it’s the morally right thing to do. It’s a necessary step towards changing the culture.
UT Dallas, my graduate alma mater, brags about having more National Merit Scholars in its freshmen class than Caltech has it its freshmen class. [ Newly Released Annual Report Shows Continued Progress, UTD Press Release, April 12, 2012]

Yet, UT Dallas never breaks out its population of National Merit Scholars by race, ethnicity or national origin.

Why is that?
