But wouldn't there be a lot more to it than "Someone hates me for my skin colour".
I'll go read it now.
I dunno how it is in America, but surely only you control your GPA? If it is like an Average GCSE/GCE then I don't see how any one other than you infleunces that.
Ok so Imagine I get a 3.0 GPA (national average) and I am looking to apply to quite a few colleges, I would do what I am doing now in the UK and see what unis I can realistically apply to, I might do something simmilar to having a few semi risky choices and a few choices I can easily get.
I get my results back and out of the 5 I chose (I have no clue how many they can chose) and I get, Denied, Possibly,possibly,probably,accep ted
If I had done nothing else bar put my ethnicity as black I could have got something along the lines of one possibly and the rest accepted. Obviously you might be thinking that tons of other stuff goes into getting accepted but I even remember a website (that you now need to sign up to) with a checker and it would give you a good estimate of your chance at getting in some of the top colleges and if you put in black instead of white and said the exact same GPA you would get far better results than non blacks, even asians have to get a higher score than white people quite often so that is even more racist.
The table might have been done in 1997 but it is a good study and if you think of how liberal we are now there are often more oppertunities for blacks, Sometimes even they get a reserved amount of places say 100 out of 1000 have to be given to blacks, meaning that I am fighting for even fewer places, these arguments have been upheld by the supreme court and are abhorrent.
The article even then tries to suggest it is not biased with a bunch of ********, if I have a disadvantage JUST because I am white and he has an advantage because he is black that is racism as plain as it could be.
