Does AA lead to lower standards

From the Wall Street Journal:

In his annual March Madness column on low African-American graduation rates among competing schools, the Boston Globe's Derrick Z. Jackson this year noted that the majority of teams in the tournament hid behind privacy provisions to avoid even reporting their African-American graduation rates. Final Four participant Georgia Tech, for example, lists a white rate of 60% and an overall rate of 27%. What does that tell you about where the African-American graduation rate must be?
