The Myth of American Meritocracy. Ron Unz
, former publisher of The American Conservative
, has challenged many of the magazine's "paleocon"
readers with several recent articles on ethnicity (including His-Panic
, which questioned links between immigration and crime, and Race, IQ, and Wealth
, with a skeptical eye toward that subject). But in his latest (long!) article, The Myth of American Meritocracy
, Unz will challenge many kinds of readers, as he makes the case for persistent, extensive ethnic discrimination in Ivy League admissions, which for decades, he argues, has been extremely biased in favor of under-qualified Jewish whites at the expense of well-qualified Asians and non-Jewish whites.

A female kicker is suing Duke University because she was cut from the team. She says it was because she's a woman, the coach says she wasn't as versatile as other kickers on his roster. With colleges passing illiterates through based on football skill, I'm skeptical that a coach would make a roster decision based on sex.
