In 2012 there was a significant increase in the percentage of admits who identified as Asian, and a corresponding significant decrease for blacks and Hispanics (https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2018/10/19/acceptance-rates-by-race/). This corresponds with the beginnings of the current lawsuit against Harvard. These percentages had remained relatively constant for at least 20 years (http://www.unz.com/runz/asian-quotas-in-the-ivy-league-we-see-nothing/).
It just seems like there is a big gray area between what is legal and illegal discrimination then.
There was a typo, as 2015 was the start of the lawsuit. This trend was noticed by Adam Mortara during the Harvard lawsuit. I wonder, do you have admit rates by race for these years? That would be the relevant number for this analysis.
I think we have many points of agreement. I agree there is the kind of racism (or at least insensitivity) that you describe. I just think that the current affirmative action system isn’t the right way to address those issues.
