Affirmative Action / Re: Why I don't agree with AA

The problem with you libs is that you are always mocking instead of taking on the argument itself.



The biggest irony is that after your post none of them took on the argument like you criticized.
Either way the sun will set on this policy in 2028...no sense in wastin energy on explaining ur beliefs on this issue...save ur energy 4 the LSAT EVERYONE!

Affirmative Action / Re: QUESTION FOR AMERICANS ON AFFIRMATIVE ACTION

I am a man and fine with more women in cooolllllleeegggggee and Law schoooll!!!!
I'm sorry, but I don't know where you get the idea that white women are currently the primary beneficiaries of affirmative action in college and university admissions.  At least in undergraduate admissions, women outnumber men by about 60-40, and their numerical qualifications (except for math SATs) tend to be higher, so schools employ some form of affirmative action to get closer to gender parity.  Men, of course, are the beneficiaries of such affirmative action.

Affirmative Action / Re: Why do we get a big admissions boost?
« on: December 18, 2008, 07:30:25 PM »
Alright you all! Let's get something straight here. AA is not the law, it is simply not against the law. And I believe it is highly exaggerated in how much it is actually used. The supreme court justices mandated the sun to set on the policy in 2028. Although the date is very arbitrary it sounds like a good date to me. AA is neither right nor wrong. It's merely a flawed tool used to try to correct past atrocities. But it is right in its attempt.
I am having trouble understanding why, exactly, blacks get a boost in admissions. Is it simply because, for some reason, we generally score lower on the LSAT? Anyone have links to any good articles expanding upon the whys?
