What progress did America make in the past year toward this goal?
And the dream for a color blind society is now seen as racist because it would mean the end of affirmative action.
As a person who has been blessed with much, I have no experience with discrimination. In fact, as an engineering undergrad accepted to law school with (I imagine) a lower college GPA than many of my classmates, I might have benefited from diversity, one based on my “diverse” educational background instead of the color of my skin.
Some may say that it’s not yet time to end affirmative action. One could even argue that the welfare state has done much to suppress black success. Yet, like the Iraq War, affirmative action must have an exit strategy.
We must once again believe that a color-blind society is a worthy goal.
