That's like me saying slavery gave non-minorities the ultimate opportunity and advantage.  That's like me saying if it weren't for slavery whites would not have wealth or power.  Although this may be true, it would be pointless to make this apparent everytime  I get the opportunity (ie non-minorities and affirmative action)  Your argument is the slipperist of slippery slopes.  Move ur affirmative action opinions to the affirmative action thread please.  Thank you.

Bottom line, affirmative action benefits some blacks, but not all  blacks.  When one assumes that affirmative action is the only reason that blacks achieve greater status in America (ie. a better job/job opportunity than you), he only reveals the racial biases inherent within himself.  We can compare law to sports or any other occupation....there will always be players and students that do not go to the "top tier/big name" but are capable of competing with and out working/playing the kid that went to the "top-tier school" any day of the week.  Howard just happens to be a breeding ground of this sort, and employers across America realize this as well....and that's basically why they recruit here more than they recruit at your school or "top tier" schools.  Next topic please.

I don't think they get hired because they graduated from Howard with a great quality education compare to top tier law schools.  They get hired because they're black.

More like because they're excellent. Unfortunately, some whites who get rejected from law school or fail to get a job, get angry and blame race because it's easier than analyzing their own personal failings and shortcomings.
