    Chanting “power to the people” and “we’re more than our scores,” more than 100 people on Tuesday hijacked a Madison press conference held by a conservative think tank to introduce a study alleging UW-Madison discriminates against whites and Asians by admitting less qualified blacks and Latinos.

    Roger Clegg, president of the Center for Equal Opportunity, was about 45 minutes into the 11 a.m. press conference in a meeting room at the DoubleTree hotel, 525 W. Johnson St., when at least one of the protesters managed to find a back door to the hotel and either he or another person opened the main doors to the hotel lobby, letting in the crowd of protesters who had been barred from entering.
    The protester who broke in was briefly tackled by hotel staff.

    Once inside, the young, racially mixed group chanted and locked arms outside the doors to the meeting room where the press conference was taking place before prying open the doors and going in. At that point, Clegg packed up his briefcase and left to the chants of protesters.
    Cyle Agee, 20, of Milwaukee, held up a sign outside the hotel along West Johnson Street that read “Honk!!! 4 diversity in higher education.”

    “We are from a disadvantaged, socio-economic background,” said Agee, a member of PEOPLE, a pipeline program to encourage minorities to enroll at UW-Madison. “We all deserve the same rights as our peers to be educated.”

    Madison police were called to the hotel but took no action to disperse the group, which had decided to stay in the meeting room to further organize activities against the center and to hold a press conference of their own.

    Later Tuesday, Tom Ziarnik, general manager of the hotel, said the DoubleTree locked its doors after protesters threatened to “rush the hotel.” Protesters entered a private entrance when hotel employees were escorting press conference attendees out, he said in a statement, adding employees were tossed to the ground during the breach.

    Protesters asked for the police to be called because they wanted to be arrested, Ziarnik said in a statement.

    They became “increasingly physically violent” in forcing their way into the press conference, filling it to beyond fire code capacity. The protesters were told they were trespassing, Ziarnik said.

    Students are planning a rally for 6 p.m. Tuesday on Bascom Hill. A debate on affirmative action including Clegg will follow at 7 p.m. at the law school.

    Using data from the university, the CEO study said blacks and Hispanics have a better chance of being admitted to UW-Madison than whites and Asians despite having lower entrance test scores.
    UW-Madison officials also fought back against the report by the center, calling it an attack on the university’s diversity efforts.

    “Any student who is accepted at UW-Madison is here because he or she has the potential and the capacity to succeed,” said David Ward, interim chancellor. “No one is admitted solely because of race or ethnicity.”
    University officials say they have not yet had a chance to analyze the center’s claims.

    Cliffs: A study is being discussed about how it is more difficult to get into UW-Madison if you're white or Asian.
    Minorities break into the discussion and cause chaos because "they are more than their scores" apparently that is true.

    This pisses me off I worked hard in high school to get into this University and just because of the color of their skin it should be easier for them to get in?

    wish there was tags too.

    The number of minorities at La Crosse is close to 200-300 or less. Very rare to see a minority out on the streets that is not here for abroad reasons.

    Great way to prove you belong to be somewhere with lesser scores.

    Pathetic.

    I also hate how they let minorities in with lesser scores. I got fucked out of getting in somewhere and know black kids that got in with scores that were waaaaaaaay lower. Like 20% difference in percentile of applicants.

    either get in with the same scores as everyone else or don't get in at all. that's pretty much end of discussion for me. being poor or a different race isn't a crutch for your grades or test scores. :dealwithit:

    Educating ALL of our youth properly will only strengthen our country as a whole IMO.

    True, but the question is who is to blame for that. I know we're about to get a nice experiment on just that issue here in central Florida with a local high school.

    To the high school level yes, but then trades are a big thing we should be pushing kids to who might not be college material
