College Entrance Exam SAT Score Racial Profiling: 964=1223

Blacks do not score as well on SAT tests as Asians or whites. College administrators "won't let that happen".

Welcome to new math that says an SAT score of 964 equals a score of 1223.

We can’t sit on our hands and ignore the disparities of wealth reflected in the SAT,” claim college administrators.

To compensate for the fact that Blacks score lower on average than Asians and Whites, SAT to Give Students ‘Adversity Score’.

The College Board plans to assign an adversity score to every student who takes the SAT to try to capture their social and economic background, jumping into the debate raging over race and class in college admissions.

This new number, called an adversity score by college admissions officers, is calculated using 15 factors including the crime rate and poverty levels from the student’s high school and neighborhood. Students won’t be told the scores, but colleges will see the numbers when reviewing their applications.

How colleges consider a student’s race and class in making admissions decisions is hotly contested. Many colleges, including Harvard University, say a diverse student body is part of the educational mission of a school.

Methods and Scores a Secret

Close the Gaps

“Overall Disadvantage Level”

The disadvantage score goes from 1 to 100. 1 is very disadvantaged and 100 is very advantaged. 50 is average.

On average, a Black score of 946 equates to an Asian average score of 1223. But what if the Asian is very advantaged and the Black very disadvantage?

Perhaps 600=1400 to these academic wizards. We are all guessing because they do not reveal methods or scores.


A lawsuit accusing Harvard of discriminating against Asian-American applicants by holding them to a higher standard is awaiting a judge’s ruling. Lawsuits charging unfair admission practices have also been filed against the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of California system.

Expect more lawsuits coupled with demands to know how badly admissions have been blatantly biased.

Actual Results

At Florida State University, the adversity scores helped the school boost nonwhite enrollment to 42% from 37% in the incoming freshman class, said John Barnhill, assistant vice president for academic affairs at Florida State University. He said he expects pushback from parents whose children go to well-to-do high schools as well as guidance counselors there.

“If I am going to make room for more of the [poor and minority] students we want to admit and I have a finite number of spaces, then someone has to suffer and that will be privileged kids on the bubble,” he said.

Racial Discrimination Encouraged

Here's the clear message: Racial discrimination is necessary as long as it's biased against White and Asians in favor of Blacks and Hispanics.

College administrators are cowards who have little interest in the pursuit of knowledge or advancing the common good. They have become real estate developers and lobbyists and primarily interested in preserving their privileged positions.

Issac Newton must be rolling over in his grave (at 45 rpm with occasional gusts up to 78.)

These comments are based not only on the contents of this article, but also on my personal experience as an adjunct professor for 10 years. It's all depressing for anyone interested in the advancement of knowledge.


It is Black Privilege.

Add on top all the generous the "Black only" scholarships/grants to pay for college once in a college.

If "diversity makes us stronger" and "diverse teams are stronger and better" - then why is there no one pushing to make and NFL and NBA more diverse to better reflect the racial make-up of the Americans who watch these games?

Because they want to win.

The US Constitution is quite clear of equality under the law.

One day - government sponsored and approved racism will end.


Well, being discriminated against by FSU is probably a good thing for you in the long run.

I have a good friend, African-American, who is an engineer at Kennedy Space Center. Works for Bezos' outfit. He was born in the ghetto, single-mother, poor, the whole bit. He was a smart kid though and went to the University of Florida (where you actually get an education, unlike Free Shoes U). His son got a perfect score on the SAT. Why? Not just because he is a bright kid like his father, but because his parents expected him to take advantage of the educational opportunities afforded him, and to excel.

Many Asian families (including Indian) are well known for having high educational expectations for their children. Mish's list really represents a cultural bias regarding education by race. Asians demand their kids excel, Blacks, not so much. But individual people of all races fall all over the spectrum.

I don't really have a problem if a black or hispanic kid gets a little preference under certain circumstances. And primarily they have to be fighting hard for their future. In the end, they will be the role models other kids can look up to. I certainly prefer it to some jackass rich guy paying some college admissions guy a couple of hundred grand to get their idiot, stoned kid a golf team scholarship.

I actually like their scoring criteria. I am absolutely opposed to them applying it by race though. Poor white and asian kids can be growing in terrible circumstances too. But not using race still benefits black and hispanic kids simply because they are more likely to grow up that way.


Increasing admissions based on race will simply lead to something the colleges cannot control, because they are unwilling to control it: the dropout rate.


... and if there is a football or basket ball scholarship involved.... LOOKOUT!
