-If you want more wealthy white kids you will admit legacies at a high rate, and you will make sure you have a crew, lacrosse, fencing, hockey blah blah blah team and set up a large, entire official program to give those kids likely letters and almost guaranteed admissions. (You will do it for a few athletic URM and low income kids too but they won't count against your athletic admissions quota, that's saved for the white and a few token Asian kids).
IMO only the last really doesn't contribute much value to colleges. I think club teams with lots of walk-on possibilities would engage more students.
I suppose they do add some value in those ways, from a college perspective.

The Black student population at Cornell disproportionately represents international or first-generation African
or Caribbean students. While these students have a right to flourish at Cornell, there is a lack of investment in Black students whose families were affected directly by the African Holocaust in America
Sub-categories of URMs or preferential treatment within them?!?
It sounds to me like these African American Cornell students feel like international students and first-gen immigrants are "taking their places" at Cornell under some "black but who cares where they come from" quota that means every one of those accepted replaces one of them. Might be true, might not.
