The history that people accept, the one I was talking about, is the history
of poor treatment certain cultures have received in the past in the south.
If, while choosing people for seminar, you take their race or culture into
account, then the students do have a valid claim.  I don't understand the
quesitons you are asking at the end, and I don't know what your seminar is
about.  At my school, you don't have to apply to a seminar.  It is a first
come first serve basis, and I don't know what makes your seminar different
that allows you to be selective.  Tell me about your seminar please
