They seem to demand racial equality, in that the percentage of black students at their university should not be less than the percentage of black students in their state. They further demand that the percentage of black administrators shall not be less than the percentage of black people in their state. There have been demands to increase participation in STEM fields as well. The idea is that these disparities result from the historical white repression of blacks, and reducing these disparities would improve the academic success of the black race. The point is: I've seen the demands, and I do have some appreciation for the rationale. That being said, blacks were also traditionally excluded from athletic programs. The time demands on student athletes, as well as the athletic culture that values athletics over academics, puts them at a disadvantage in an academic environment, and at a disadvantage for jobs that require academic achievement. There are significantly more blacks in athletics than would be expected by the population average, but surprisingly there are no demands to racially equalize this particular subgroup of university students. Even Nate Silver at 538 completely ignores this effect in his statistical analyses. As such, their demands would indeed provide more money to black people, but they should not be expected to improve equality. Even ganja-smoking hippies stumbling around looking for their lost signature (no offense ;) are now noticing this, and this is a step backward for people of all races imo.
