[ - ] I want to have a real conversation about this. I fully support race based affirmative action for AAs - Black people in the US face outsized discrimination and are shot at, incarcerated unfairly, etc. Even if they have rich families, people still judge them based on skin. But having gone to ivy for grad and undergrad the “Latino” affirmative action at play always benefitted rich, Caucasian Latin Americans who suffer from no discrimination. Sure there were a few first generation kids of Latino immigrants there but for the most part it was wealthy Spanish speaking whites from Argentina. Thoughts? 17 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Except that they meet you and interview you. Are you under the impression that you get in just because you mark a box that states you are brown? It's a conversation starting point and you are expected to be an involved member of your community. You practically have to start an NGO that serves your underrepresented community in order to get looked at for using your URM status. [ Reply | More ]

Really? I went to Harvard for undergrad and grad school and all the Latino kids I knew had strong connections to the indigenous communities of Mexico, Peru or Guatemala or were just regular brown kids, mostly from Central and N. South America (Venezuela & Colombia, mostly). I rarely ran into rich white kids from Argentina. Maybe they just stuck out because you don't expect to meet white Latinos? I'm was heavily involved in the Latino community at Harvard. FWIW, Prof David Carrasco was my advisor and I was highly involved in Latino outreach during my time there - which was recent, and I'd rather not out myself. Was intimately involved with Harvard, Princeton, NYU and Columbia from 2002-2016. [ Reply | More ]

Spanish and Portuguese men did not bring their wives and families to the New World. It's well known that they had their sons, whom they conceived with their slaves, run their plantations when they were out of the country. Also, slavery in Latin America was different from the U.S., for starters, slavemasters did not own the children of slaves, and you could buy your own, or a relative's freedom, from slavery. North American slavery is very unique. [ Reply | More ]
