Arizona State University Says It Won't Allow Racially-Segregated Classes Anymore (and maybe this time it really means it).
By Gail Heriot
This is evidently ASU’s second offense. Back in 2002, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education complained that ASU was scheduling history courses for which enrollment was "limited to Native Americans students." ASU promised to end the racially-exclusive classes.
Now it’s the English Department that is engaging in race discrimination. Certain English Composition courses were listed on ASU’s web site as being "for Native Americans only." The ASU administration apparently took the position that the practice was going on without its knowledge (which is certainly plausible but which does not exactly end the matter).
