If, as Vijay Jojo Chokal-Ingam claims, 'affirmative action' is unjustified, and merely racism in disguise, was he right to fake being black?

Is affirmative action necessary? If so, why?

If your son or daughter wanted to fake their race in order to get into college, would you support them, or simply tell them to accept a lower course or college and make do?

If I was faced with a huge college bill, I'd quickly become a pre-op transgendered lesbian muslim.
That should knock about €50k off the final total.

But you're not willing to become post-op? Where's your spirit of diversity?

yes, this officially sanctioned racism is retarded in the extreme
I presume from your strong statement that you are in favour of abolishing it. Is that possible though? Who is engineering/promoting affirmative action in your view?

In the sense that someone wants to fake their own skin colour to get into college, its really bizarre.
And yet, it worked perfectly.

He gained admission to Harvard Med School even though he admits how lousy his academic achievements to date are.

There are tensions in Harvard Law School over Affirmative Action. The complainants are often Asians rather than Whites.

So he basically only got in on account of his claimed skin colour and not on any actual qualifications, im lost for words to be honest.

Don't worry about the op, it's perfectly acceptable these days to keep the meat and two veg, and the beard, and still call yourself a lesbian. The best thing about it (besides getting to call actual female lesbians TERFs*) is that you can invade female spaces at will and nobody can do a damn thing about it.

For example, this man is currently taking up space in a Catholic homeless women's shelter, and all he had to do was change his name to Danielle.



In terms of the OP, in my view yes it's still racism when it's practiced against white people and Asians. It doesn't become Good Racism just because it's discriminating against those "privileged" groups.

Ok, I really should know better, but is this for real?

It's almost as if Indians weren't enslaved and subject to some of the systematic legal, economic and social discrimination in the USA.
