48% of people who lied claimed to be Native American

If they were born in America. What's the lie? "I'm native American. I thought you capitalized it because it was the first letter of a list entry."

Yepper, every time I am faced with a form or questionnaire, I list myself as a native American. My family on both sides has been here for nearly 200 years and that qualifies me as deeply native.

It's inevitable that Americans would identify as native. One of my kids is half asian and she's native American too, she's born here + my kid = American.

Take their own skewed parameter of definitions and use it against their purpose. It's the American way.

I bet 0% chose Asian, turns out that's almost as bad as White nowadays for schools.

Worse than white.

Asians can still get race-based scholarships, so if you need the money but have very high scores.

There are subgroup scholarships for Whites, but nobody ever uses them. One Chinese kid in one of my classes got the Italian one just because no actual Italians applied.

sometimes there is a new category "biracial" where you dont have to choose white or asian

I've told my kids to mark hispanic every chance they can.

How dare they say that "they lied" and also assume their ethnicity.

They chose to identify as non white.

Their ethnic orientation is transracial.

Ethnic dysphoria is valid.

I identified as "mixed race" applying for my current job.

10/10 would do again

Say you're Jewish and you're guaranteed a spot.

That's how Whoopie Goldberg got her start in Hollywood.

send_it 12 points ago +12 / -0

I mean... She's got the name to go with it.

The one time the early life section doesn't check out...

Careless_Ejaculator 3 points ago +3 / -0

She changed her name so they'd call her for auditions. Her actual name is Caryn Elaine Johnson.

One account recalls that her mother, Emma Johnson, thought the family's original surname was "not Jewish enough" for her daughter to become a star.

If Elizabeth Warren was able to ride the Pocahontas train all the way to the top with literally zero repercussions, then why the fuck should other people not?

And then, it was the joggers themselves who came up with the "one drop" rule... so obviously if you then declare that your great great grandfather was black, making you then black, how the fuck is anyone going to question you about it?

Even easier, just claim hispanic.

Oh yeah my grandma is from Argentina.

[Don't mention she was ethnic German and fled after the war...]

Fled the war? Holocaust survivor! In that case there would be no university in the world that would be so antisemitic as to reject someone with that background.

Make sure to put into the admission paper something about genetic trauma and how you feel the spirits of the six gorillion within you.

Fled the war? Holocaust survivor!

I mean I'm sure she was involved in the holocaust, so technically she did "survive" the holocaust.

Technically correct is the best correct.

This is also why Biden doesn't want Venezuelans.

Having to state your race to apply in college is the joke.

redguards_are_nwahs 15 points ago +15 / -0

"Becoming" a joke? This has been a literal joke since the race grift started. Now it's sound strategy

sneedger 14 points ago +14 / -0

I heard the number was higher. Good to see that a huge chunk of young White kids understand what the system has become, and are figuring out how to hack it.

The government takes and takes and takes. These schools over charge. If anyone has issue with people lying to get cheaper schooling, they are an idiot.

I was literally TOLD to do this in the late 90's. This has been going on ever since the entitlement programs started.

Kweebecker 5 points ago +6 / -1

So 66% of white college applicants are either stupid or lying in the survey.

xleb2 [S] 5 points ago +5 / -0

You missed the joke/

RoulerBleu 3 points ago +3 / -0

Ah, a joke. Very funny when White people have to lie to avoid institutional discrimination against them due to their race. Haha.
