Harvard's Freshman class, class of 2019, had a record number of admitted African American students This is about 170 students or 12% of the Freshman class which is a increase from the Ivy League norm which is about 5-10% of the students admitted are African American. In October 1946, the University of Pennsylvania enrolled only 46 students. This was out of a student population of 9000 Comparing the 1940s to 2010-2015 In comparison, the New York Times in 2013 reported in the 2011-2012 academic year the University of Pennsylvania's student population was 9.4% African American which is a huge increase from the 0.005% it was in 1946. 5 Ivy League schools in 2011-2012 school year with highest African American population in comparison to their Asian population In conclusion, I'd say yes, racial discrimination does still exist,but not to the extent that it did in the past. Columbia: 10.5% African American, 25% AsianPenn: 9.4% African American, 21.9% AsianPrinceton: 9.1% African American, 22.6% AsianBrown: 9.0% African American, 15.7% AsianHarvard: 8.8% African American, 21.8% Asian Are Asians in Ivy league Admissions the new Jews? The highest African American population in Ivy League schools is lower than the lowest Asian population which is at Brown In the early 1900s, Ivy Leagues created new quotas such as leadership and well-roundedness to keep the number of Jewish students at about the same number year in and year out. As the number of qualifying applicants increase the number of admitted stays about the same year in and year out. The reason the Ivy League schools give is they have to obtain diversity in their schools. Harry Flannery
