Latest University of California Admissions Figures

by Roger Clegg

“For the first time, the number of Latinos from California offered freshman admission to the University of California was larger than that for whites,” reports the Los Angeles Times.  But they aren’t 1-2, they are 2-3, because Asian Americans remain number one.  I wrote some time ago that, while some might see a historical sense in which favoring blacks over whites might be justified, what happens when most of the preferences are going to Latinos over Asians, as is increasingly the case?  Well, as always, the future is now in California – or would be if racial preferences were allowed there.
