If you make an assertion, it's up to you to back it up. Don't expect others to find support for your arguments. Now play nice, or I'm going to start cleaning up in here.

It's never too late for a good LOR.
Best answer to why not to ask for one is if they don't know you or your work very well. I found that the best way to ask for a letter was to ask if they felt they could be a good reference and talk about things they might write, rather than just to ask for a letter.

I think this site will help you out. Good luck with your apps!
Who would you prefer(and why) Cain or Obama?
Yeah, essentially this. But I'd still much rather have the choice of a real progressive.
Why do we even need this URM bull? Do we really need to accept people that are less qualified? Does the workforce really prefer inferior lawyers? How are you entitled to gain an advantage from something that you had no power to control? Should we be more lenient when it comes to admitting down syndrome folks? Perhaps autistics ones? Thoughts? I feel like this affirmative action system is preventing the US from producing the best lawyers possible.
As an aside, it's your contention that non-white students are being admitted to schools they don't deserve to be in, right? But they're graduating. And we all know that law school exams aren't adjusted for race or subject to AA. And neither is the bar. So, what is it about exceeding your underestimation of their abilities that's their fault?
If I were you, I'd take a year. Get a job--a real job, mind you--and get some work experience doing what you learned in undergrad. Also take that time to reflect on why you want to go to law school, and more to the point, why you want to be a lawyer. If you're still feeling that itch, you can study for the LSAT and try it again, this time with a few entries on your resume to help you along.
