“the Office for Civil Rights revealed that it had launched a second investigation into the school just days after resolving the previous one”
This is due to another program that is allegedly discriminating based on race. How does this keep happening?

Department of Education swamps Duke University with civil rights investigations
Duke University is facing a fresh federal civil rights investigation for a racially exclusive program at its medical school days after resolving a separate civil rights matter over excluding women.
Last week, the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights informed Mark Perry, a senior fellow with the medical watchdog group Do No Harm, that Duke University was no longer excluding men from two programs the school had organized, one for high school girls interested in orthopedic surgery and engineering, and another for female medical students.
But on Tuesday, in response to a complaint from Perry about a program at the Duke University School of Medicine that was reserved for black men, the Office for Civil Rights revealed that it had launched a second investigation into the school just days after resolving the previous one.
Perry and Do No Harm had accused the medical school of violating federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination on the basis of sex and race through its Black Men in Medicine initiative.
“In violation of Title VI, non-Black male and non-Black female faculty, trainees, and students in the Schools of Medicine and Nursing (including faculty and students who are white, Asian, Hispanic, Native American, Pacific Islanders, and Middle Eastern/North African) are illegally excluded from the [Black Men in Medicine] program and discriminated against on the basis of their race, color, or national origin,” Perry wrote in his complaint.
