The American postsecondary system is a dual system of racially separate and unequal institutions despite the growing access of minorities to the postsecondary system. Affluent white students as well as prestige seeking four-year colleges are flowing to the top tiers of selectivity, while lower income minority students are flooding low tuition, open-access, two- and four-year institutions. This report argues how the postsecondary system is more and more complicit as a passive agent in the systematic reproduction of white racial privilege across generations.
