We all know that Obama wouldn’t be president if he were white.
And if he weren’t black and being graded on a curve, even the staunchest of Liberals would rate him at about “Biden” level of intelligence.
The fact is there is an advantage to being black in America. Being black now means that one can be sub-par and most people will be willing to overlook it.
We’ve seen the outcome of a sub-par president, and it’s not pretty. But on a more personal note, would you want a sub-par doctor?
Vijay Chokal-Ingam, brother of “The Office’s” Mindy Kaling, pretended to be black during the 1998-1999 school year in order to gain an edge in acceptance to medical school.
The ruse paid off; his fraternity brothers didn’t even recognize him after he shaved his head and trimmed his long eyelashes. Now, Vijay is a vocal opponent of Affirmative Action.
In my junior year of college, I realized that I didn’t have the grades or test scores to get into medical school, at least not as an Indian-American.
Still, I was determined to become a doctor and I knew that admission standards for certain minorities under Affirmative Action were, let’s say… less stringent?
So, I shaved my head, trimmed my long Indian eyelashes, and applied to medical school as a black man. My change in appearance was so startling that my own fraternity brothers didn’t recognize me at first. I even joined the Organization of Black Students and started using my embarrassing middle name that I had hidden from all of my friends since I was 9 years old.
Vijay, the Indian-American frat boy, became Jojo, the African- American Affirmative Action applicant to medical school.
