A Commentary On Supreme Court Cases: Students for ‘Fair’ Admissions v. UNC & Harvard

By Jones The Advisor / November 27, 2022 / Comments Off on A Commentary On Supreme Court Cases: Students for ‘Fair’ Admissions v. UNC & Harvard

College Admissions, ‘Race Neutrality’, & Preferences Based On Race … As One Small Part Of The College Admissions Process


… Speaking as a College Administrator & Teaching Faculty Professor for 20+ Years … 

… The College Admissions Process cannot be Exclusively Analyzed via … a Statistically Significant … Quantitative … OR … Qualitative Methodology …

… Using One without the Other … Leaves The Analysis Short … Of Considering The Entire Picture …


… In order to Adequately Use and Analyze … the ‘Simulations’ Presented in the recent Supreme Court Cases … 

… Students for Fair Admissions v. UNC & Harvard …

… A Person Should Analyze Those ‘Simulations’ … and the Plaintiffs Arguments … in Both Cases … 

… Not Only Quantitatively … with respect to the Outcomes of those ‘Simulations’ … 

… But Also Qualitatively … with respect to what went into Creating the Disparity That Persistently Exists … 

… Between Underrepresented African American, Hispanic, & Native American Student Admissions Applicants to College at UNC & Harvard …


… In other words … Were the K-12 Educational Experiences “Equal” or Fair … as per the 14th Amendment … 

… Relative to Adequately Preparing Each Racial Group … For College Success … 


… Were The White & Asian Students … Equally Prepared … Or … On Balance Better Prepared …

… Than The Black, Hispanic, & Native American Student Populations? …


… Qualitatively Speaking … The Answer is a … Resounding No …

… However …

… Quantitatively Speaking … ‘The Simulations Produce Acceptable Attrition’ … According to the Plaintiffs …

… Relative To Losing ~ 5% to 10% of the African American Student Enrolled Populations …

… Thus … Effectively Reducing Those Black Student Populations … At State Universities like UNC … & … Private Ivy League Universities Like Harvard … By 5% to 10% …


… When one uses Exclusively Quantitative Outcomes … In every Plaintiff Presented ‘Simulation’ … African American Student Populations Lose Admitted Student Populations … 

… In the range of 5% to 10% of Admitted Students … 


… Again … In Every Plaintiff Presented ‘Simulation’ …

… The ‘Simulations’ Cause Those Schools … And Others Similarly Situated … To Lose …  5% to 10% of The Black Student Population … 

… In My Opinion … That Is Not An Acceptable Quantitative Outcome … 


… Even If It Means Implementing “Race Neutral Policies” … Relative to the College Admissions Applications Process … 


… Those Are Aspiring College Students … With The Same Hopes & Dreams … As The Other Members Of Their College Admissions Application Cohort …

… Who Were Simply Academically Underprepared … at the K-12 Levels … To Attain Academic Success In College …

… At BOTH UNC & Harvard … 


… That says nothing about how many Black Students … Will be Retained … And Proceed toward Graduation … In a Timely Manner … 


… In The Final Analysis …

… Were the 13th, 14th, & 15th Amendments … as well as Brown v. Board of Education About …

… ‘Racial Neutrality’ Expressed Toward Each Student Population … 

… Without Particular Respect … Specifically Demonstrated Toward African American Underrepresented Student Populations? … 

… In The 1860s – 1870s … as well as … In The 1950s? …


… Or … 

… Were those Legal & Constitutional Landmarks about … ‘Simulations’, Empirical Numerical Examination, … & Quantitative Analysis … 

… Which Obfuscate the Concurrent … Qualitative Realities …


… In Other Words … 

… It Is acceptable to lose 5% to 10% of African American College Matriculants … 

… Because … Over 20 Years Ago … in Grutter v. Bollinger …  Justice O’Conner Said …

Playing Economic Catch Up …

By Jones The Advisor / August 7, 2022 / Comments Off on Playing Economic Catch Up …

… Supply, Demand, Recession, & Economics … Explained in 20 Statements …


… Suppose A Company Has Ten 10 Critical Workers … Who Work on a Nuclear Reactor … & They Are The Only 10 Workers Who Can Maintain the Nuclear Reactor … In The Whole World! …

… And None Live Near Each Other … But ALL Equally Live Two 2 Hours Away From The Nuclear Reactor …

… The Company Purchases One 1 Vehicle Per Worker …

… Problem is … The Car Company Only Made Two 2 Vehicles …

… AND it Takes One 1 Year to Make Each New Vehicle …

… Money is Already Given To The Car Company … For All Ten 10 Vehicles …


… Thus … The Money Just Has To Sit There For The NEXT Eight 8 Years Total …

… While ONE 1 Vehicle Per Year Comes To Each Nuclear Reactor Worker …

… What Can The Money … OR … The Car Company … OR … The Workers … OR … The Nuclear Reactor Company Do? …

… Nothing … ALL They ALL Can Do Is Wait … & Hope Nothing Blows Up For The Next EIGHT 8 TO TEN 10 YEARS TOTAL! …


… Simply Put …

… Too Much Money … Chasing TOO FEW GOODS …

… The Money Just Has To Wait …


… When Supply Does Not Equal = Demand …

… The Money RECESSES … Into A Waiting Pattern …

… Until The Supply of CARS … & The Demand For the Cars … For The Workers … & For The Nuclear Reactor Company … 


CATCH UP WITH EACH OTHER!!


… Summary … When Supply Does Not = Equal Demand …

… We Get Recession … Folks …

Earlism #104 Think Spiritually

By Jones The Advisor / July 21, 2022 / Comments Off on Earlism #104 Think Spiritually

“… Never …

… ‘Divest Yourself Of Your Intellect’ … 

… Always … 

… ‘Think Spiritually’ …”



Thinking Spiritually


… Once … in a Job Situation … 

… In an effort … I GUESS … To Get Me To …

… (Control Me … Honestly) …

… ‘Go Along … To Get Along’…

… With A Couple of My Subordinates / Supervises …

… My Supervisor … The Associate Dean & Dean of The College…

… Asked Me…

… “What Would You Have To Do to Accept These (Obviously Scurrilous) Lies Told About You?” …


… Quickly … But Calmly …

… Because I KNEW that I Had Documented Everything via Email Carbon Copy (CC) OR Blind Carbon Copy (BCC) … 

… Sent to the Afore Mentioned Associate Dean … 


… I Replied …

… “Divest Myself Of My Intellect” …


… I Chose To …

… Always Think Spiritually …



… For we did not receive the spirit of this world system … but the Spirit of God … 

… so that we might come to understand and experience all that Grace has lavished upon us … 

… And we articulate these realities … with the Words Imparted to us by the Spirit … and not with the words taught by human wisdom …

… We join together Spirit-Revealed Truths with Spirit-Revealed Words … 


… Someone living on an entirely human level … rejects the Revelations of God’s Spirit … for they make no sense to him … 

… He cannot understand the Revelations of the Spirit … because they are only discovered by the Illumination of the Spirit … 


… Those who live in the Spirit … are able to carefully evaluate all things … 

… and they are subject to the scrutiny of no one but God … 


… For Who has ever Intimately known the mind of the Lord Yahweh well enough to become His counselor? … 

… Christ has … 

… and we possess Christ’s Perceptions (The Mind of Christ) …
