the stunning evidence of harvard’s racism

harvard university records unveiled friday show the school engages in blatant, egregious racism in the name of diversity.the info came out thanks to the lawsuit by students for fair admissions over admission policies that discriminate against asian-americans. perhaps the most damaging revelation was a 2013 internal harvard study that concluded exactly what the suit charges — and the only action the school took was to suppress the research.the documents also show how harvard discriminates. to counter asians’ tendency to do extremely well on traditional measures (test scores, grades and extracurriculars), it routinely rates them lower on soft categories like “positive personality,” being “widely respected,” likability, kindness, etc.an analysis by the plaintiffs’ experts of har...

tottenham star will help england surpass low expectations

usually, expectations are sky high for england entering a world cup. not this year, which may be a blessing in its opening match. england has a superstar-laden roster with the likes of harry kane, raheem sterling and dele alli, but monday’s rival tunisia has a habit of frustrating opponents with a defensive posture like it did to spain in a 1-0 loss last month. most likely to break the deadlock? captain kane, who has been lethal for tottenham, scoring at least 25 goals each of the last three seasons and 13 goals in 24 england appearances.the play: harry kane to score any time (-110 at william hill, +103 at mgm).england vs. tunisialine: england -1 1/2england: +135tunisia: -155over/under: 2 1/2over: +115under: -135money lineengland: -250tunisia: +775draw: +350share this:
