Lino Graglia, a University of Texas at Austin law professor has come to the conclusion that black students can’t compete with white students in terms of the chances for success.

Why can’t they compete with whites? Graglia says it’s because many of them are raised in single parent homes where their uneducated parents’ don’t breed them to value their opportunities to escape the life they were born into.

Professor Graglia’s statement came from an interview that was responding to the comment of a white prospective UT student who said that “She’ll have to attend a second rate college” because of the university’s affirmative action program.

This isn’t the first time that Graglia’s loose-lips have landed him in the public eye. In 1997, Graglia told a UT conservative group that black and Mexican-American cultures set children up for “failure” because both cultures “seems not to encourage achievement.”

I’m wondering how much time Professor Graglia has spent in a black or hispanic household in modern day society.
