I didn't check the gym...

Today was the sixth (or so) time I've been to George Washington University's campus. I have one question to ask: where are all the black people non-white people? There is very little diversity on the campus. I'd like to think maybe all the minorities are to busy studying to be walking around or going to the food court, but I'm pretty sure that's a fantasy. At this elite college in the National's Capitol surrounded by a black city with very few minority students attending. It's sad.

It reminds me of a ongoing problem in California, with the new admission standards minority enrollment is steadily declining. They are trying to come up with ways to increase admissions but so far none have worked. What is going to happen in the future (although I secretly hope this will increase HBCU enrollment), it's not good that minorities cannot get into these schools. Why can't we get in? Why aren't our test scores good enough? Is the SAT really bias towards minorities? Should the SAT be the determining factor? We need to find the answers to these questions soon.
