University Grading Based On Race, NOT Merit

Posted By Julia Dent On 10:40 AM 07/22/2014 In | No Comments


The University of Wisconsin-Madison has taken affirmative action to a new level. Instead of giving grades on how well you do in class, grades will be determined by race.

The new policy, called “Framework for Diversity and Inclusive Excellence,” calls for “proportional participation of historically underrepresented racial-ethnic groups at all levels of an institution, including high-status special programs, high-demand majors, and in the distribution of grades,” according to IJ Review.

UWM Professor Emeritus W. Lee Hansen was angered by the policy, and wrote about his concerns, Western Journalism reports.

“Suppose there were a surge of interest in a high demand field such as computer science,” he said. “Under the ‘equity’ policy, it seems that some of those who want to study this field would be told that they’ll have to choose another major because computer science already has ‘enough’ students from their ‘difference’ group.”

“Professors, instead of just awarding the grade that each student earns, would apparently have to adjust them so that academically weaker, ‘historically underrepresented racial/ethnic’ students perform at the same level and receive the same grades as academically stronger students.”

Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago

Everyone gets a medal.

Makes me sick.
Anyone who tells you you can't buy happiness has never been in a book store or an animal shelter.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
