Affirmative Action: Can You Say Like?
Check out this wonderful video on affirmative action, with college students being asked if they favor the policy being used on their school's basketball team.
Many students support affirmative action, in an effort to promote diversity. They argue that race-based preferences “level the playing field” for disadvantaged minorities. However, these same students refused to sign our petition to apply such policies to the basketball team. At UC Riverside — where the video was filmed — 10/11 active players on the team are African American. Why not use affirmative action to promote diversity there?
