US to Stop Urging Schools to Consider Race in Admissions

The Trump administration announced last week that it would not urge schools to consider race in the admissions process.

The administration withdrew official guidance meant to increase student diversity at schools across the United States. That guidance was developed during the presidency of Barack Obama.

The move gives schools and colleges the federal government’s permission to leave race out of admissions decisions. It is evidence of the politics that have long surrounded affirmative action policies. Those policies have repeatedly been at the center of cases heard by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The Obama administration guidance was among 24 policy documents withdrawn by the Justice Department for being “unnecessary, outdated,” or not meeting existing law. Attorney General Jeff Sessions described the changes as an effort to re-establish the “rule of law.”

Yet civil rights groups criticized the move and some university officials said they plan to continue their diversity efforts as before.

A changing court

The Supreme Court’s most recent decision on the subject approved of the use of race in the admission process. But Justice Anthony Kennedy, who wrote the court’s opinion, plans to retire at the end of July. This gives President Donald Trump a chance to appoint someone who may be more critical of admissions programs that take race and ethnicity into consideration.

The new policy is a big change from the thinking of the Obama administration, which had often said schools could consider race in admissions decisions to support diversity. In one 2011 document, the administration said courts had recognized schools’ “compelling interest” in supporting racially diverse populations.

Institutions are not required to implement race-neutral approaches if, in their judgment, the approaches would be unworkable,” the document said. It added that in some cases, such methods will be ineffective to creating the diversity the school seeks.

That guidance has now been withdrawn. So were similar documents, including some which tried to explain court rulings supporting the use of race in admissions decisions.

The Trump administration’s Justice Department had already expressed concern about the use of race in admissions decisions.

This year, it supported Asian-American claimants who said Harvard University unlawfully limits how many Asian students are admitted.

Harvard said it would continue considering race to create a “diverse campus community where students from all walks of life have the opportunity to learn with and from each other.”

Against years of decisions

Civil rights groups criticized the Trump administration’s move. They say it went against many years of court decisions permitting colleges to consider race for admissions.

The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law released a statement from Kristen Clarke, its president and executive director.

It reads: “We condemn the Department of Education’s politically motivated attack on affirmative action and deliberate attempt to discourage colleges and universities from pursuing racial diversity at our nation’s colleges and universities.”

Lily Eskelsen García is president of the National Education Association. She said, “Affirmative action has proven to be one of the most effective ways to create diverse and inclusive classrooms.” She said the announcement signals the importance of Trump’s Supreme Court appointment.

The new affirmative action guidance may add to U.S. congressional debate over Justice Kennedy’s replacement.

The Associated Press reports that Howard University law school dean Danielle Holley-Walker criticized the new guidance. She said it is another sign that the Justice Department is likely to target schools that do continue to use race in admissions decisions.

This is a clear attack on past legal decisions, Holley-Walker said, and that any Supreme Court nominee needs to be asked if they support past decisions on affirmative action.

Holocaust Survivor Becomes America’s Tailor

June 20, 2018 2:12 PM

Martin Greenfield knows a thing or two about suits. He’s been making them for over half a century at his shop in the East Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.

During that time, Greenfield has measured and tailored suits for generals, members of Congress, Hollywood celebrities, and even U.S. presidents. His customers include Dwight Eisenhower, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump.

But Greenfield did not arrive at his career in a usual way. He didn’t dream of growing up to sew clothes, or learn the business as an apprentice. Instead, Greenfield’s first encounter with a needle and thread happened when he was a prisoner at the Auschwitz concentration camp in 1944. He was 15 years old.

​“While washing and scrubbing one of the Nazi’s uniforms, I ripped the collar of the shirt. The guard became angry and beat me with his baton. A nice man working in the laundry taught me how to sew a simple stitch,” says Greenfield.

The kapo having no more use for the shirt, Greenfield kept the shirt for himself.

“I eventually took the shirt and wore it all through the concentration camp, until I got to another camp (Buchenwald) and they made me take it off.”

For Greenfield, the shirt had much value.

“The day I first wore the shirt was the day I learned clothes possess power. Clothes don’t just ‘make the man,’ they can save the man. The kapos treated me a little better. Even some of the prisoners did the same. Wearing the shirt, the kapos didn't mess with me and they thought I was somebody."

Greenfield’s parents and siblings were also at the concentration camp. The family was forced by the Nazis to leave their small hometown of Pavlovo, Czechoslovakia. Once at the camp, Greenfield never saw his family again. His father, mother, sisters, brother, and grandparents were killed. His life was spared.

“My father said no matter what job they give you, you do it and you will always survive. And I did survive,” he says.

After World War II, Greenfield immigrated to the United States.

He landed a job at GGG Clothing Company as a “floor boy” – someone who ran errands and did odd jobs. But he worked his way up, and in 1977 he bought the company and give it his name: Martin Greenfield Clothiers.

Greenfield is 89 years old now. His two sons, Jay and Tod, along with more than 100 other people, work at his company. But Greenfield still comes to the shop every day and walks the floor, managing workflow production and paying close attention to detail. When asked about his success, Greenfield gives credit to the talent and hard work of his employees. He also notes the importance of a satisfied customer.

“When I deliver a suit and they put it on and say, ‘My God, this is beautiful’, they know it is the quality we produce,” he says. “We satisfy our customers so they could come back again because we have the best suits ever!”

Pogba dedicates France win to Thai cave survivors

Saint Petersburg

Paul Pogba dedicated France's World Cup semi-final win against Belgium to the 12 boys who survived a harrowing ordeal trapped underground in Thailand.

The final five members of a young football team were rescued from a flooded Thai cave on Tuesday after spending 18 harrowing days trapped deep inside, completing an astonishing against-the-odds rescue mission that captivated the world.

Elite foreign divers and Thai Navy SEALs extracted the final batch of four boys, plus the 25-year-old coach, via a treacherous escape route that required them to squeeze through narrow, water-filled tunnels in darkness.

Following the 1-0 win in Saint Petersburg, Manchester United midfielder Pogba tweeted: "This victory goes to the heroes of the day, well done boys, you are so strong."

 

FIFA boss Gianni Infantino had invited the boys' Wild Boars football team to Sunday's World Cup final last week.

But FIFA said it had been informed "that due to medical reasons, the boys will not be in a position to travel to Moscow".

"FIFA's priority remains the health of everyone involved in the operation and we will look into finding a new opportunity to invite the boys to a FIFA event to share with them a moment of communion and celebration," a spokesman said.

The Thai footballers, aged from 11 to 16, had been stuck deep underground after setting off to explore the cave with their coach after training on June 23.

FIFA also expressed condolences to the family of a Thai Navy SEAL who died after running out of oxygen during the rescue operation on Friday. "Our thoughts are with his family," FIFA said.

Hooyah! All footballers and coach out of cave

national July 10, 2018 19:02

All 12 young footballers and their assistant coach who were trapped inside Tham Luang cave in Chiang Rai for two weeks have been evacuated from the cave on day 3 of the rescue operation.

According to the Thai Navy Seal's Facebook page, the four divers who accompanied the last members to be rescued from deep in the flooded complex where they took shelter will also soon leave the cave.

The final members to be freed from their ordeal join three boys who were extracted from the cave earlier on day three.

The post on the SEALs' Facebook page ended with "Hooyah."
