I know that quotas are not allowed. I also know that they do exist. My relative is a dean of admissions at a top LS and he told me that they use them.Oh, I'm not trashing AA. I think we need it, but I do not think it should be a more selective process in deciding who deserves it.
Also, Coquita, yes whites held blacks in slavery for a long time, but that is not a reason for blacks, not all, but many, being tokes of top univesities. You still do not understand that I'm not trying to argue that blacks or any other URM is inferior in some matter to a white man. What I'm saying is that a person MUST prove his/her worth and being part of a program that undermines intelligence ( that's what AA does in my opinion) of some races is just ridiculous.
Lastly, I think that Horsley is right when he says that URM's enjoy as many if not more benefits of the American society. URM neighbourhoods get so much help, but most of that help is wasted, because many URM's especially blacks think that the world owes them something.
Ilovecheese: To start a topic on one topic in order to draw people into a discussion about something else entirely is rude and diminishes your credibility as a poster on this board. Don't be tempted to do it.
