Should race be an issue in college admissions?
Asked at Dillons, 3000 W. Sixth St.: on February 19, 2003
“Yeah, I think it should. I think blacks in this country are in such a bad state because of continuing racism here, and we need to take extreme measures to counter that.”
“No, I don’t. I would just say that everyone should be treated equally regardless of race.”
“No, I don’t think it should. I think everyone should have the same rights.”
“I don’t think race should play a role at all. It implies that the quality of a mind is affected by the color of the individual, which is not true. It can be dealt with at an early age by funding programs to increase interest in school.”
