Discrimination is discrimination, regardless of which group is being favored.

I didn’t say anything about the judge’s jurisdiction. I simply said that if Harvard is forced to end one discriminatory admissions practice, it should end them all.

A student whose mommy or daddy went to Harvard may be more likely than a random person to be qualified for admission there. But this possibility should be irrelevant to the actual admissions decision. All that should matter is the student’s qualifications.

And the tax deduction thing is just a distraction. The practice of buying a seat for an unqualified student is wrong and shouldn’t happen.

If Harvard can prefer the children of celebrities, why can’t it prefer the children of members of a given ethnic or racial group?
