Cord Jefferson at Good Magazine points to research that shows that first-and second-generation black immigrants make up 41 percent of all black students at Ivy League universities, even though they constitute less than 1 percent of the U.S. population.

Jefferson writes that Ivy League schools brag about their diversity while "admitting hugely disproportionate numbers of wealthy immigrants and their children rather than black students with deep roots—and troubled histories—in the United States." Check out the story here.
