MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross attacks ‘white women’ as ‘biggest beneficiary of affirmative action’

MSNBC’s Tiffany Cross put forth the utterly laughable assertion that white women are the largest beneficiaries of affirmative action in college admissions, even though the policy is specifically designed to favor non-white prospective students.

This week, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in the cases of Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard and Students for Fair Admissions v. University of North Carolina. They will then determine if in fact those schools actively discriminate against people who are not of color, specifically white and Asian people.

On Saturday’s “Cross Connection,” the host made the same tired conflation of “equality” and “equity” and defended the policy, which is by its very nature legal discrimination based on race.

Of course, with the composition of the Court having shifted from mostly activist judges to mostly constitutionalist judges after three Trump appointments, the Left regularly sets their collective hair on fire whenever an asinine law, policy or ruling is in danger of being rectified.

Cross was joined by former Obama administration counselor Christopher Kang as well as Damon Hewitt, who incidentally is one of the lawyers arguing against the affirmative action challenges. Naturally, no lawyer from the other side was there to destroy the integrity of their leftist echo chamber.

“Now with the court’s conservative majority, this case has a real chance you guys of dismantling affirmative action in a country where despite this, quote, racial reckoning everyone loves to talk about, we’re still very much on the journey to equity and equality,” Cross began.

When asked how he thought the Court would rule on the case, Kang responded predictably, “I can tell you how the court should rule. The Supreme Court has upheld affirmative action programs and higher education for four decades. Based on the law, based on precedent, based on the facts here, there’s no question that the courts should uphold these programs.”

He continued in sky-is-falling fashion, “We now have a 6 to 3 super-conservative, super majority on the court. And I think we just saw it. We saw it with overturning Roe v. Wade, making it harder to address climate change, gun violence prevention, the Supreme Court has no problem, this Supreme Court has no problem throwing out precedent and ruling in a really partisan, political way. So, I think that the future of affirmative action and higher education is really at risk on Monday.”

Hewitt offered his two cents on the matter and criticized the use of standardized testing as a factor in college admissions.

“Not only do they privilege family income and what have you, but they’re also literally under-predicting talent and merit among students of color. So schools are depriving themselves of a whole swath of talented students of color if they only rely on standardized tests,” the attorney argued..

Then Cross, who was probably just waiting for her turn to talk, fired this pre-fabricated missile:

“And the biggest beneficiary of affirmative action? White women,” she said, evidently referring to a March article in teenVogue which asserted the same.

She also argued against “legacy” admissions.

Naturally, Kang agreed and pointed to white supremacy as the root cause of the legal challenges before the Court; white supremacy being one of the many hackneyed notions peddled by the Left for which there is far more demand than there is supply.

“This is all part of a broader white supremacist agenda that they’re [conservatives] trying to bring through their courts and now they can because they’ve wrested control of the Supreme Court,” he said. “Nothing has changed over the last 40 years in terms of the precedent and the law. It’s just the fact that the Justices are different,” he contended.

As BPR reported Wednesday, whatever ruling the Court decides will radiate from school admissions and out into the workforce in America at a time when far too many industries have been consumed by anti-white discrimination in hiring practices that masquerade as diversity and inclusion.
