Today the Washington Post urges that college officials simply select the “best group and let the chips of racial composition fall where they may.” To be sure, the “college officials” it has in mind are basketball coaches, and the “best group” being referred to is their starting team. And, of course, the Post is also referring to March 19, 1966, when Texas Western started five black players in the NCAA finals against Kentucky, and won. But the principle’s still the same for, say, admitting students to the university or hiring history professors, right? Right??
