The ends of AA is worthy. Diversity and the equalization - for the lack of a better word - for years of institutionalized discrimination, are valid issues that need to be addressed. However, I'm not sure the means in which these ends are achieved is the best way to go about it. Every black doctor/lawyer/etc i look at I can't help but think in the back of my mind, how they didnt do as well as their peers on the mcats, on the lsats, etc, but still got into school. Basically, i can't help but wonder if they are less competent than their white and asian peers. Asians actually get reverse-AA, especially in post-grad programs.
