A white highschool senior was voted class president of Student body of Tolleson High school in AZ,?

Question:but an Hispanic junior became class president because the school counselor decided that she represented the Hispanic population, is this discrimination?

Answers:
absolutely, and its very wrong on the school's part. The school elected whom THEY felt represented them...what does race have to do with who is class president anyway?
You mean that the junior Hispanic girl was not voted into office by the students, but the senior class president was?

I think this is an example of affirmative action in high schools. There is probably no rule against it. If you think affirmative action is discrimination, then yes, it is. Otherwise, no. ;)
This would be called reverse discremination. It's funny that the principal thinks race is such an important part of representing the students. I'm sure it never crossed the Seniors mind he/she was representing a hispanic population, the Senior and the rest of the school probably just figured the president represented students at the school.
