Tuesday Twitter Talk: Affirmative Action.


@DanFosterNRO
On poor white Christians, contra @AdamSerwer and @TimFernholz: http://bit.ly/bfj5vN

@TimFernholz
Wow, that's really...um...not responding to any of our arguments with Douthat.

@TimFernholz
Adam specifically said, btb, and I concur, that increasing socioeconomic diversity from all racial backgrounds is critical.

@TimFernholz
And, incidentally, is your post an affirmation that diversity should be a factor in college admissions?

@TimFernholz
Also super-curious if feeling discriminated = actual discrimination only applies to white folks, or all groups?

@DanFosterNRO
feeling discriminated against becomes important when it warps our political discourse, black/white whatever.

@DanFosterNRO
idea is that it's something to be addressed, not that feelings alone can/should form basis of claims for political restitution

@DanFosterNRO
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.
