But are Jews White or something else? With 2% of the population, we have between almost 10% and about 25% of the adminissions to most all the top schools. Not long ago (well in terms of my age) there were very strict quotas to keep most quantified Jews out of the top schools. I personally had this experience. But I was lucky. Some of the top schools had just dropped their restrictions and actually admitted an overabundence of the otherwise rejected top Jewish students.
But this has made it worse for the White students. And the stats hide this since Jews are combined in the White catagory. And worse for them yet is the ever increasing presence of East Asian students who are giving the Jewish students a lot of competition. And worse for the Black and Hispanic students is the combining in many schools of Asians with Blacks and Hispanics as People of Color to meet the new terminology as recently advocated even here. But I guess that’s better than Minority since that would include the Jews.
Don’t know what this all means in terms of this article except that non-Jewish Whites and non-Asian People of Color seem to be having a hard time in terms of the top schools.
