In an interview with the BBC, University of Texas at Austin law professor Lino Graglia claimed that black and Latino students are unable to compete with whites, mostly because so many of them are raised in single-parent households. Graglia's controversial interview was just another shot fired in the battle the university is currently waging with a white student who claims that UT's affirmative action program is the reason she'll have to attend a "second-rate" college.
This isn't the first time that Graglia's loose-lips have landed him in the hot seat. In 1997, Graglia told a UT conservative group that black and Mexican-American cultures set children up for "failure" because both cultures "seems not to encourage achievement." How does this dude still have a job?
