Re: I Have a Nightmare

Talcott, your criticism of Furstenberg’s absurd statement is very fitting. However, it’s worth noting that, according to The D article, the non-white population at Dartmouth is not really “approaching 40 percent”; it’s at 32.4 percent. That means Dartmouth has a white population of 67.6 percent. This is only a hair’s breadth away from the national figure, 69.1 percent.

If Dartmouth’s goal is an equitable racial balance, it’s pretty much been achieved. Let’s hope Furstenberg’s inane comment was just bloviation.
