Watch what happens when students at the University of California-Riverside are asked to apply the concept of affirmative action in a way not typically done, but still under the typical reasons of “equity” and “leveling the playing field”. Hypocrisy may abound!



This type of ridiculousness is propagated by organizations like the University of Central Florida, that has long tried to make a name for itself by producing an annual “Racial and Gender Report Card” for each of the major professional sports leagues. For example, in 2010, UCF awarded the National Basketball Association (NBA) “an ‘A’ for race . . . higher than any other sport in the history of the Racial and Gender Report Card.” What goes in to earning an ‘A’? Here is the racial breakdown of the NBA, according to UCF:

White: 18%

Black: 77%

Latino: 3%

Asian: 1%

Now, according to the CIA World Factbook, the racial breakdown of the United States:

White: 80% (NBA-18%)

Black: 13% (NBA-77%)

Latino: 15%* (NBA-3% )

Asian: 4% (NBA-1%)

This is your “level playing field” of ‘A’-rated behavior that apparently is the model all others should emulate.

*Note: A separate listing for Hispanic is not included because the US Census Bureau considers Hispanic to mean persons of Spanish/Hispanic/Latino origin including those of Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, Dominican Republic, Spanish, and Central or South American origin living in the US who may be of any race or ethnic group (white, black, Asian, etc.); about 15.1% of the total US population is Hispanic
