Thanks Ann! I think we can lay to rest the whole 'affirmative action is for the downtrodden' trope. It's exactly like legacy admissions--it lets those not smart enough to compete honestly, but from a wealthy family, get a 'great education' which will guarantee success. To my mind, if you have to cheat, it's not success. It's just knavery, and it should hardly surprise us that there are so many con artists on the left like our president.

A dumb person receiving a great education will still be dumb. And will therefore be forced to work for the government.

When California ended AA admissions to its public colleges and universities it experienced no significant difference in minority admission rates or graduation rates.

That pretty much tells the story. Minorities don't need special help to get 'in' and they don't need special help to progress. To treat them as if they do is racist and insulting.

It's not as if they REALLY care for minorities. They are just a path to power
Elizabeth Warren, who also goes by her Indian name, "Lies on Race Box," is in big heap-um trouble. The earnest, reform-minded liberal running for Senate against Scott Brown, R-Mass., lied about being part-Cherokee to get a job at Harvard.

Harvard took full advantage of Warren's lie, bragging to The Harvard Crimson about her minority status during one of the near-constant student protests over insufficient "diversity" in the faculty. Warren also listed herself as an Indian in law school faculty directories and, just last month, said, "I am very proud of my Native American heritage."

Except, oops, she has no...
