The Texas Fish

November 4th, 2012

For University of Texas, I believe that any university should be able to use race. All colleges need to have diversity in their schools.  People need to learn about other ethnic groups and see other religions. If our students were not brought about to  diversity, then it would not simulate real world issues.  As a director of admissions, i would not just accept a student on behalf of race but because that person has qualities that we seek. A student with better background and grades deserve a spot before others who don’t have good grades or good background skills.  As in the case of Grutter, the University of Texas the percentage plan is constitutional and is a great way of picking top students. In any case of a student getting denied by  a college, i think that everyone would get hurt a little. If its your dream school it will always hurt. Colleges are not trying to injure any student. All colleges are trying to do is pick the right students with the rights backgrounds.
(Standing Sue) I do not think Fishers injury should have been denied by the college. Considering that maybe it was the only way to file sue then i also think that it could be. Only if it was your only reason to use as an injury. It would have made her look better if she had not moved on right away and moved on to a different college.
Diversity of Discrimination 1) I believe that it does make a difference. A school need to have racial differences. Not every student should be the same.  We need Ethnic diversity.
Diversity of Discrimination 2) Without Ethnic Diversity, no student can properly understand the real world. Not everyone is the same out there.
