Affirmative action today seems to be another way of saying "handicapped". At the time it was implemented it was needed.It was intended to level the playing field for Blacks. Given the opportunities available to everyone today and the fact that immigrants are not generally included in affirmative action,it is time to throw away the crutches.
Extremely brave article by writer Vinson. Most times, when a white defends what could be reverse discrimination he is automatically attacked for being a racist. But in this case Vinson put his thoughts together so well, hedidn't give attackers any chance to attack. I agree, if the University of Michigan law school can bump a white student with superior scores and allow in a black student with lesser scores, then why can't the university bump a black player from the football or basketball team for the sake of racial diversity? Very Strong article!
