In this day and age, I think it’s ridiculous that we need to factor race to diversify our schools. It’s been over fifty years since the historic jury in Brown vs. Board of Education of Topeka ruled in favor of integration and helped spearhead the civil rights movement. If we still need to bus certain kids to certain schools based on the color of their skin, then Martin Luther King’s dream surely did not come true.

The government should stay out of our personal lives as much as possible. And in the Affirmative Action case now before our US Supreme Court, not only was the government interfering with our lives, they were relighting a fire that was put out long ago.

    Couldn’t agree more. Why do minorities deserve preferential treatment? They don’t. If you are qualified then you get whatever you aspire to.
