‘Affirmative Action Detrimental to All’

by Roger Clegg

That’s the title of a terrific op-ed today by a Latina student at Amherst. I started to quote some of the most compelling passages, but I had to give up because, really, the whole thing is compelling. The author says she decided to focus in the op-ed on “personal stories [in order] to provide a human face to this problem,” and she certainly succeeds.
