Just when you thought things couldn’t get any worse, the Trump administration will redirect resources from the civil rights division and put them towards a new program which will seek to investigate discrimination against white people in college admissions.
Clearly Trump needs a history lesson because he is forgetting about the hundreds of years of discrimination against minorities during the 1800’s and 1900’s. Affirmative action was created to level the playing field in the workplace and school admissions, which has historically favored white people. 75% of black students who graduated from high school attended university while 88% of white students who graduated from high school went to university, clearly showing that whites have the advantage. Shame on you Trump and Sessions for getting rid of an initiative that helps those who are not as fortunate as others.
