    It's totally true, when you account for Jews, the White Christian is clearly the most under-represented in colleges.

    Take Yale for example.

    52% of Yale is White.

    Yale University - CollegeData College Profile

    But 28% of Yale is Jewish.

    2015 Top 60 Schools by Jewish Student Population

    So, actually about 24% of Yale is White Christian, and 28% White Jewish.

    I'm only strictly speaking of a "White Christian background" when you account for Agnostics, and Atheists obviously the number goes down even more.

    But, that means that White Christians are very well under-represented in Yale.

    white christians are just 43 percent of the population and that was last year, they were a majority less then 10 years ago, they are becoming a smaller percentage of the population year by year

    Yale is a place of education, ie learning . I would hardly think the bible thumping variety of christians could make it there

    Well, I'm including all White Christian background people, ones who might be Atheist, or Agnostic too.

    You mean people that believe in myth over fact have a hard time in colleges that teach fact? Do tell.

    Why aren't they in religious 'schools' where they learn Jesus rode dinosaurs and the Earth is 6,000 years old? Where you flunk out if you get the answers right. Come back to reality, you aren't going to force the entire rest of the human race that relies on facts to now embrace whatever religion you want to belong to.

    I see your point, but Yale is a private university and therefore can have any demographic they want.
