    "for rich white people," but i didn't want to distract from the core message. and these warriors against affirmative action often aren't themselves from the oligarchic class, but as usual are being distracted. because there are certainly many more legacy admissions than affirmative action admissions.

      An alumni who doesn't donate is a persona non grata as far as legacy admission is concerned.

      Admissions folks will nod politely. But then they look to see how much you donated. Small donations? nothing? Ha! You're kidding! We hope your kid enjoys community college.

      This is all about rich people.

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.

        White has changed to brown. When will my view be green?

          Your family gets legacy consideration, regardless of color or ethnicity.

          Of course, most rich college-educated people in America are white. But the defining factor here really is donations, that is, affluence.
