Discrimination Badge

March 14th, 2013

I believe that the College shouldn’t have the right to say someone isn’t accepted into their college just because of their race or color. Its not fair that she worked hard all through high school and had her heart set on the college and is not accepted only due to that reason which is racist in my opinion. The school does have the right to decline the student applying but not for that reason it would be as if she went to get a drink of water and the teacher said no because your white. The girl is right in my eyes in has a right to stand up for her rights. If worst came to worse she could’ve applied and went to a different college. Though she most likely is right about the school being racist the judges will end up taking the colleges side due to the rights of the school being able to decline whoever they want. Colleges have the right to decline kids for all different reasons. They can accept you for having good grades, decline you for having a history with the law. They say all men and women are created equal and not accepting someone because of their race is not a reason to decline a student. Students all over work hard to achieve their dreams in life and having a college stop them from achieving their dreams because of your race is not acceptable. If I was that girl I would move on to another college, chase her dreams and don’t let the college stop her.
