On poor white Christians, contra @AdamSerwer and @TimFernholz: http://bit.ly/bfj5vN
Wow, that's really...um...not responding to any of our arguments with Douthat.
Adam specifically said, btb, and I concur, that increasing socioeconomic diversity from all racial backgrounds is critical.
And, incidentally, is your post an affirmation that diversity should be a factor in college admissions?
Also super-curious if feeling discriminated = actual discrimination only applies to white folks, or all groups?
feeling discriminated against becomes important when it warps our political discourse, black/white whatever.
idea is that it's something to be addressed, not that feelings alone can/should form basis of claims for political restitution
Not sure where you saw support for diversity agenda in my post. One can say AA fails on its own terms w/o supporting said terms.
