So I take you are against affirmitive action then? (taking that race card aspect out of it) Afterall that is the ultimate example of putting someone somewhere not due to merit but due to what they look like in the mirror.
I'm not against certain forms of affirmitive action. I think that there should be enough minority scholarships built into the system so as to make sure that minorities are adequately represented. On the other hand, I wouldn't hand the scholarships out like candy, and they would be reserved for only the smartest within each group of minorities).
