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.
