America’s most prestigious colleges and universities touting their efforts in attracting and admitting students of color aren’t practicing what they preach exactly.

According to the Harvard Gazette, the university’s incoming class included a record number of Black and Latino students.

While these institutions tout their diversity, they’re do so by admitting wealthy, non-American students of color, rather than Black and Latino students from the U.S.

The problem, of course, isn’t that Black immigrants are going to Ivy League schools in large numbers; educational success should be applauded no matter where the student is from. But the large numbers of African immigrants on American college campuses, coupled with the remarkably small numbers of native Blacks on those same campuses, calls into question the effectiveness of America’s affirmative action programs.
