As much as this is making a stir here, I can see both sides. I don't know what exactly happened to the kid who made the stir initially, but there has been a certain level of ridiculousness about race at Princeton lately.

See this, for example: http://itooamprinceton.tumblr.com/post/83586877966

Princeton doesn't have an Africana Studies major, but it has a Center for African American Studies: http://www.princeton.edu/africanamericanstudies/

as well as a Program in African Studies: http://www.princeton.edu/~piirs/prog...S/Program.html

Then there's this morose looking pair:

They may well not have any black professors. But that hardly means that there aren't any. You could select classes in such a way that you'd have nothing but black professors.

There does need to be a balance here.

And I'm pretty sure if you compare schools, you'll find that there is not perfect overlap with all majors. Princeton doesn't have a med school or a law school, either.
