You're dodging the issue of the discrimination against better performing minority groups and I wish that you would address it.
To address it, I would have to take your word for it, you rant, but do not support. If it is the case, I did say that changing is better than eliminating, and you thinly qualified your broad brush statement here:

Really not? These are complex issues who's causes are not as singular as you are trying to make them IMHO.

I've never taken the GRE, but my problem solving has served me well and was the main reason I did well on tests.
Are we talking about intelligence, or potential to excel in the higher ed environment? There you go branching the discussion again, I'm done, you can't seem to stick to your absurd conjectures, and I understand why.
