White backlash in college admissions?

Report: Justice Department plans to target affirmative action

Roger Clegg, president of the Center for Equal Opportunity, which opposes affirmative action, told the Times he welcomed the new campaign by the Justice Department. 

“The civil rights laws were deliberately written to protect everyone from discrimination, and it is frequently the case that not only are whites discriminated against now, but frequently Asian-Americans are as well,” he said.

Race conscious admissions policies generally favor blacks and Hispanics and limit opportunities for whites and Asians.

That about the Asians undercuts the argument that efforts to specially recruit blacks and Hispanics are necessary to redress lingering effects of past discrimination against both groups, and supports arguments that blacks and Hispanics perform less well than whites and Asians for other reasons.

Even arguments that Hispanics and blacks are, for reasons to do with population genetics and natural endowment, just less smart than whites and Asians.

Asians, too, after all, were among the excluded and discriminated against, but they are doing fine without the least special effort to help them along.

And then there are the Jews, eh?

Anyway, for decades, the GOP has been the party opposed to affirmative action, quotas, mandatory busing and other forms of required race-mixing, and the like.

This move is not something new in the Grand Old Party.

But the left wing noise machine is howling as though Nathan Bedford Forrest, himself, had taken charge of the Justice Department, with the same political aims as white Southerners in the years immediately after the Civil War.

Update.

How many of Trump's white supporters are in some degree of non-British, non-Irish extraction?

You know, Jews, Poles, Italians, Germans (the largest ethnic group in America, not just among whites but altogether), French, Serbs, Russians, and the like?

Who were all those whites who voted for Bozo?

Even if alarmed at the vociferous personal and political hostility of nonwhites, will quondam "unmeltable ethnics" think English-only is a good enough approximation to whites-only immigration, and do they want the latter enough to tolerate the difference?

In the face of the black left's evident and stubborn intent to reduce American whites to the status of a racial minority as soon as they can, they might.

Actually, it's a pretty safe bet.
