Re: Saletan


Robert, maybe I’m being too charitable, but my interpretation of Saletan is just that he has belatedly but happily come to the conclusion that, rather than make racial generalizations (in medical prescriptions or college admissions), we should judge people as individuals. So, for instance, rather than assume that all blacks and Hispanics come from socioeconomically deprived backgrounds and that no whites or Asians do, we should consider socioeconomic disadvantage in all applicants.
