People Believe That It’s Racist To Require A 2.0 (‘C’ Average) To Be Admitted to College

Maybe that title is far too misleading. There’s no actual claims of racism being made, just analyses that if the bar is raised to *cough* mediocre level *cough* that the new placement will be a significant barrier to minorities. It’s insulting to read something like this but it’s true from the perspective being shown. Many of the local applicants for Wayne State University are minorities. Many of local applicants are also poor people or at least come from an area that’s demographically poorer than a place like Ann Arbor.
