What an incredible story. There are lower college entry standards for black people thanks to affirmative action. This student fakes being black and gets accepted into medical school and blows affirmative action out of the water.
Vijay Chokal-Ingam is the brother of Mindy Kaling, who was in The Mindy Project. He also is the guy who has admitted to faking being black in order to get into medical school.

Student Fakes Being Black
In a New York Post story, Chokal-Ingram explains how he was a great student in high school for a good portion of the time. Then he joined a fraternity and he cut loose and committed “a great deal of effort to fun.”
Per Daily Wire:
Wanting to be a doctor, he noticed a friend had been refused acceptance to every medical school despite his good grades and test scores. That prompted him to study “the statistics and data made public by the Association of American Medical Colleges,” which led to a “surprising conclusion. The data suggested that an Indian-American with my grades (3.1 GPA) and test scores (31 MCAT) was unlikely to gain admission to medical school, but an African-American with the same grades and test scores had a high probability of admission.”
Reading about an Indian who lied about his race to gain admission into medical school but got caught because he lied about other things, Chokal-Ingam went a different route:
I shaved my head, trimmed my long Indian eyelashes, joined the University of Chicago’s Organization of Black Students (a black friend ran it, knew my scam and got me in) and began applying to medical schools as a black man. I transposed my middle name with my first name and became Jojo, the African-American applicant.
He got wait-listed at the Washington University School of Medicine, then got accepted into the St. Louis University School of Medicine.
Surprise, surprise: “After two years and a lot of soul searching I realized I just wasn’t cut out to be a doctor. I dropped out of medical school …”
This shows why things like affirmative action don’t work. It’s over governing. This guy is not cut out to be a doctor, but he used the resources he has available and still was able to get into medical school.
Now, Chokal-Ingram rips on affirmative action.
I am not convinced that affirmative action fully benefits the underprivileged. In my application to medical school, I disclosed that my mother was a doctor, my dad an architect, that I drove a nice car, that I didn’t receive financial aid and that I grew up in an affluent section of Boston. I didn’t even say that I was “disadvantaged.” Yet medical schools such as Case Western Reserve University considered me one of their “affirmative-action candidates.”
… affirmative action tends to promote racial resentment and perpetuates negative stereotypes. Some Asian-Americans and whites believe they are the victims of affirmative-action discrimination and can feel resentment about it. Affirmative action also furthers negative stereotypes about the professionalism and competency of African-American, Native American, and Hispanic professionals by making it seem like they need special treatment.
What an incredible story. Chokal-Ingram exposes institutional racist.
