Applying logic to college admissions

Regarding your editorial, "Race and college admissions" (Oct. 17), you champion school administrators as the sole arbiters of college admissions. Would that you allowed property owners and businesses to choose who they want as renters and customers. Didn't think so.

None of the above issues are about race, they are about power, who wields it and who suffers from it. Generally, you progressives are the first to run to the courts when a vote or election goes against your holier-than-thou beliefs. Try to at least be consistent, will you?
