Keep race out of college admissions

Racial considerations in college admissions have been voted down twice in California (“A More Diverse America Turns Against Racial Preferences,” The Wall Street Journal, Oct. 14). Yet colleges persist in trying an end run around the issue.

College is not for everyone.  Certainly, it is not for applicants whose race is a factor in admitting them.  I say pure merit should be the only consideration.  If that results in a study body composed of students from only one race, so be it.
