Mindy Kaling’s Brother Claims He Posed as a Black Man to Get Into Medical School
In the affirmative action debate, if one believes that affirmative action opens the floodgates for less qualified individuals to be accepted into schools they wouldn’t be accepted into otherwise, that person must ask themselves why they believe that only lesser-qualified minorities benefit? Is it because that individual believes that minorities—specifically, black people—are generally less qualified than whites? One shouldn’t operate under the assumption that all whites who are accepted into prestigious education programs are the absolute cream of the crop, and one also shouldn’t think that the only reason non-whites get accepted is because they aren’t white. These students have to meet qualifications and standards, and it stands to reason that Chokalingam would’ve gotten a similar response from most of those schools had he not committed fraud to prove a racist point.
