Under affirmative action, this was supposed to happen
all the time.

Do you have any hard data?

I don't, so I have to balance "common sense" against
personal experience.

I never did hear about it anywhere except in WP

Every white person I knew that wanted a college

get one, despite economic level.

I can't say the same for the blacks I knew.
