Black and White in Ohio

Stephen Bell of the Student Free Press Association:

A new study conducted by the Center for Equal Opportunity (CEO) claims Miami University and The Ohio State University discriminate based on race and ethnicity in the admissions process. …

CEO Chairman Linda Chavez said Miami and Ohio State lower academic standards to admit students from diverse racial backgrounds.

“The study shows that many, many students are rejected in favor of students with lower test scores and grades, and the reason is that they have the wrong skin color or their ancestors came from the wrong countries,” she said.

The study found Miami admits African-American students 10-to-1 over white students compared to 8-to-1 at Ohio State.

The study found at Miami median SAT scores differ between back and white students by between 110 to 166 points in what it calls the “black-white gap.”

Gaps in ACT scores between black and white students at Miami were estimated at four points.

Chavez said in addition to accepting students with lower test scores, Miami accepts students with lower high school grades to amplify its racial diversity.
