How about America gives back the land it took, pays for the labor it was unjustly enriched by, gets rid of legacy admits, criminalizes all intoxicants instead of just the ones minorities use, abolishes the distinction between white collar crime and other crime and then strictly prohibits racial profiling?  What is it about that that really bothers you?

Seriously, I dont think it exists the way people thing it does or to the extent.

Also, the whole system is tilted against minorities since the beginning of time and in this one area, just few are getting a slight bump.  I dont see why there is an uproar.

And, no one bitches about legacy admits to the extent they female dog about AA.

How's this: certain American families give back the land, money, and resources it either stole or appropriated, pay for the free labor and we call it even.  We'll get rid of legacy admits, criminalize ALL forms of intoxicants instead of just the ones minorities tend to use, equalize the sentencing for "white" collar and other crimes, and strictly prohibit all forms of racial profiling.  How's that for a good start to a level playing field?

Bad for whites, especially for italians, poles, greeks, arabs, and other "white" ethnicities already underrepresented in law school.

Really bad for asians, who are discriminated against most by AA, and the desire for proportional representation, given that they tend to excel the most academically before law school, and get basically just get pitted against each other in admissions.  (Despite the fact they also theoretically experience the same discrimination and prejudice of urms, of course.)

Worst for qualified urms, who have their legitimate achievements tarnished and stigmatized by AA, while also having to fact the greater ethnic resentment produced by AA. 

Oh, and it's also bad for unqualified urms, of course, as they're simply placed into situations they're not generally equipped or prepared to handle.  Result:  higher academic failure rates than would've occurred in appropriate schools, higher bar failure rates, etc. 

Who does it help?  No one, except maybe the consciences of rich whites, who feel bad about their advantages, which also make the costs of AA essentially meaningless to them.  Which, of course, is why it exists, despite overwhelming recognition of the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of this particular form of lingering state discrimination.
I take it you are a highly qualified law school applicant who has been jilted by the unqualified URMs?

Newsflash - AA doesnt exist.  There are no quotas and any benign racial discrimination must pass strict scrutiny, which is strict in theory, but usually fatal in fact

There are many worthier causes to waste err, allocate your time fighting

No one, and i repeat, no one has heard of Fordham on the West coast.  Not a one.

Plus, it's sunny and the alums are all about helping each other.

Law School Applications / Re: criminology major..will it hurt me?

IMHO the only thing that matters is your GPA and LSAT.  That's it.  Everything else is probably no more than 5% combined.  So will it hurt you, maybe if you could have gotten a better GPA somehow else, but only by like 2%.

Does the guy get sex in return?  Sounds like you're a whore, no offense.
