UT's sort-of diversity

The AP covered diversity issues at my alma mater of UT. It's a situation that is very common across the country, but especially in the South. In Texas, for instance, 12% of the state is black but only 4% of the UT student body. Hispanics make up nearly 30% of the state but only 15% of the student body. Those few minorities that are on campus often feel isolated and unwelcome.

Forget stupid remarks from talk radio hosts, this is racism that actually affects people.
