A Quick Thought on Affirmative Action
I would MUCH prefer to save a spot at Penn State for a hard-working inner-city Black/Hispanic kid who's had to overcome a number of barriers than I would a spot at Carnegie Mellon for an upper-middle class black kid from the suburbs who's had to face essentially zero adversity.............P.S. And, yes, I would consider the inner-city kid for Carnegie Mellon, too. It would just have to be a situation in which I could envision success as opposed to failure/one in which I was just being politically correct.
