Q3A: Too many Black students in college for sports

I am going to read you a few statements and for each I'd like you to tell me whether you tend to agree or disagree with it, or if, perhaps you have no opinion about the statement. First, do you agree or disagree that too many Black high school students are accepted by colleges because they are good at sports and that prevents White students with better academic records from attending?
