"Celebrate Diversity" bannerA scathing report suggests five public colleges and universities in Virginia are illegally using a potential student’s race in the admissions process.

The report from the Center for Equal Opportunity claims it found a “significant amount of discrimination,” especially at the University of Virginia and at William and Mary.

Breitbart.com, which reported on the study, says Asian Americans faced the most discrimination.

Marie Fischer of Project 21 tells OneNewsNow the accusations appear to be affirmative action that is considering race, which she opposes.

“I don't agree with affirmative action in the first place,” she says. “For example, I had 4.0 GPA. It's not fair that you're going to look at my race before you look at my grades and achievement."

Preferential treatment for minorities flies in the face of Martin Luther King's dream of a day when children would be judged not by the color of their skin but the content of their character, she says.
