For the second time in fifteen years, the appellate court has upheld the affirmative action ban, which prohibits universities from factoring in an applicant’s race and ethnic background in selecting the next year’s graduates.
Ward Connerly should be applauded for standing up to the multicultural raw-raw grievance industries, which have characterized minority youth as victims of the system..
In many cases, affirmative action has created the very victims which they have tried to help. Minorities can thrive even in the atmosphere of negative discrimination, as witnessed by the Lebanese in Sierra Leone, the Chinese in Malaysia, and even the Jews in Eastern Europe.No program better exemplifies the harm of government than affirmative action. “I’m from the government, and I am here to help.” –dangerous words, indeed.
