At some dumbversity in Mexifornia a student engaged some of its students who support affirmative action and asked them to sign a petition to extend the same practice to the school's sports teams. Specifically basketball, which he asserts is over ninety percent black. â€ªPetition to Apply Affirmative Action to Basketball Teamâ€¬‏ - YouTube The responses are really fun to watch. I guess in defense of the floundering students one can allege that athletic skills are an objective thing while intelligence isn't. But that would merely be showing one's ignorance of the great Arthur Jensen who has demonstrated to pychometrians, the experts in the field, that g or general intelligence is much akin to one's speed in running. I'm reminded that a well-known child psychologist like Jerome Kagan at Harvard admits he was dragged "kicking and screaming" to that position--and that it, g or general intelligence, is at least partially inherited by one's DNA. But I guess it's no longer necessary to be smart to attend college like it was traditionally thought to be. I recall the Patriots LBer from Ohio State taken in the same draft as Damien Woody, Andy Katzenmoyer, that one of the courses he took and struggled with was AIDS awareness. Ohio State's answer to basket weaving i guess. Any chance to practice diversity on the basketball team?
