Exactly. Another point: Ingraham most likely tried to find the worst dirt she could about Hogg and that was all she could come up with; an honor student couldn't get into an out-of-state college of his first choice.

What was Hogg's SAT and what is the average SAT score for out-of-state applicants for UCLA?

Hogg had almost zero chance being an out of state white male.
The 20% cap on non resident enrollment in the UC system covers out of state and international students

UC regents approve first limit on out-of-state and international student enrollment

Hogg made a 1270.

I don't know if they post out of state, but the average of all incoming freshman is 1370. Out of state would be higher since so few are accepted out of state.

I imagine that when students have to worry about a mass shooting, they cannot concentrate as well on their studies.

I think its sad that an adult attacked a grieving child and also that it is sad that conservatives today are so okay with being more immature than children in regards to name calling and bickering/tantruming.

Do they weigh the average for a minority?

No

"Does the UC system use affirmative action? No. California schools are bound by Proposition 209, which in 1996 disallowed state public institutions from discriminating on the basis of race, sex or ethnicity. That means the UC system canít use an individualís race as a factor when considering his or her application."
