For years, we’ve been wondering if any authorities will ever officially document exactly who is on top in terms of diversity Pokemon Points. Clearly, cisgender straight white males are at the bottom, but among the privileged, who outranks whom?
So, don’t put down your race as “Unknown.” They hate wiseguys like you and will relegate you to even lower than the White/Caucasian untermenschen.
I believe this table was especially used for those tricky people who are of more than one ancestry. If a U. of California applicant was, say, Black (#1) and Other Asian (#12), would he outrank an applicant who was Mexican (#2) and American-Indian (#4)?
Yes. The highest card in your Diversity hand determines where you rank, no matter what other cards you hold. Blacks are supreme, so a claim to hold any degree of Blackness defeats any combination of cards that don’t include the Black trump card.
Keep in mind that racial preferences are unconstitutional in California government operations, such as the University of California system, since 1996’s Proposition 209. But who cares about the law?
Since 2010, the following ranking applies:
Individuals are asked to provide “Which of the following groups best describes your background. Check as many categories as may apply”.
In the following list, the italicized headings indicate the reporting category. The bold headings represent the categories listed on the Undergraduate Application. The bullets represent the choices available.
While interesting Whites/Caucasians like Yemenis and Libyans are at least listed above the line, European untermenschen are isolated down in the lower right corner.
