Evil race-based programs

Google Goof? Raced-Based Scholarships From Tech Giant Are Likely Unconstitutional

For our friends on the left, attitudes toward race have apparently come full circle. It wasn’t that long ago, less than a decade perhaps, that the mere suggestion of a major corporation openly discriminating against prospective candidates for scholarships and fellowships based on their race would have been denounced from every angle of the political spectrum.

If those being excluded from consideration were to have been limited to only white folks, there would have certainly been sympathizers with the idea from various leftists, but they wouldn’t have been brazen enough to put forth the notion publicly. And if it wasn’t only white folks whose candidacies were being barred, if non-white scholars were also being eliminated from the pool of candidates, then we would have expected to hear screams of objection from all sides.

But times have changed, and it now appears to be perfectly acceptable for not only corporations but for academic institutions as well, to exclude any race they feel like, provided such exclusions align with their hierarchy of victimhood and electoral strategies. Now Google and many of the top colleges and universities in the country may have a serious problem on their hands as a result.
