There’s a NY Times article (from a few days ago) about a big problem at the five “best” CUNY schools. With an accompanying graph. Because they have become more competitive, the percent of black enrollment has declined significantly. Even Hispanic enrollment is down since 2001.
But guess what. The percent of non-Hispanic white enrollment is also down since 2001!
What has happened is that Asian enrollment has skyrocketed, and along with increasing Asian enrollment comes much higher SAT scores of admitted students.
The declining non-Hipsanic white enrollment has created great angst among liberals because the wrong minority is benefiting from it. Asians are the minority that elite liberal whites hate.
