The way for colleges to attack privilege would not be by racial quotas.
Racial quotas cut out the least privileged white people (in the candidate pool) from gaining admittance while keeping the most privileged. The white people kept around are the ones who would be able to get a spot at a comparable school, while the ones left out are the ones who will have a much harder time.
Racial quotas don’t attack privilege. Racial quotas attack whiteness, and prey on the least privileged. The way for a college to be focused on helping would be by ignoring grades, status, legacy, test scores, and talent while focusing on various intersectional sort of disadvantaged peoples. They won’t do this. Why? Because they are using their leftism to be trendy, not as something they actually believe in. They just want tokens of their (false) virtue, they aren’t really seeking to do something meaningful.
All group politics end up preying on the weakest. No one wants to attack someone who is adept at defending themselves. Ergo, anti-black sentiments get focused on the weakest people. Similarly, anti-white sentiments get focused on the weakest white people. It is the weakest and most disadvantaged men who get the ire and brunt of anti-male rhetoric.
