There's an excellent editorial by Linda Chavez in this morning's NY Post on the response to a report detailing, among other things, how "a black or Hispanic applicant to the University of Wisconsin-Madison is more than 500 times more likely to be admitted than a similarly qualified white or Asian applicant."
When Roger Clegg, of The Center of Equal Opportunity -- which funded the study -- debated a law professor there, another professor, Sara Goldrick-Rab, evidently tweeted that Clegg sounded like "the whitest white boy I've ever heard."
Imagine if a professor ever described a black participant in a debate as sounding like "the blackest black boy I've ever heard."
The professor would be immediately relieved of his duties. Any organization he worked for would forever be tainted by its association with him and henceforth be banished from campus. And the New York Times would make it front page news for several days running, and they would write long, agonized editorials about how it symbolized racism in America.
But Ms. Goldrick-Rab was on the politically correct side, so the sky remained in its place.
