True. I'm sorry it was off topic.

I wasn't suggesting it was analogous to being 1/64th NA. Nor was I trying to derail the thread.
I was assuming that imbored25 was disgusted with OP for trying to take advantage of something OP doesn't deserve.
I was trying to convey that there's a perfectly legit use of the URM system that I'm willing to admit I'm disgusted with.
And, if the system as it stands is not just, why get mad at someone for trying to tap into it?
Just because you're answering a simple question about race doesn't mean you can pretend it's just a question about race. It's also about the boost you'll receive, & I truly feel that a URM from a wealthy family who did all they could for their child has less "moral" right to use the boost than OP would if OP happened to be dirt poor. I don't know OP's social background & I don't care to, I'm just saying if he can get a boost, I won't judge him for it, because I know if I were a wealthy URM I'd damn sure check the appropriate box to get my boost.
