Weissberg: Why Do College Administrators Lie About Race?

Americans generally take a dim view of lying and liars. We venerate George-“I cannot tell a lie—Washington and those giving testimony in court must swear to tell the truth and nothing but the truth and those lying under oath risk being be found guilty of perjury, a felony punishable by up to five years in prison in federal cases. Particularly relevant is how universities punish those falsifying research.

Why, then, do so many university administrators, including presidents at elite schools, tell bold-faced lies regarding race-related issues?
