Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the point of the law was to promote diversity by guaranteeing spots to high schoolers in the top 10% in both rural Texas and inner city schools. Yes, most of Texas is white, but the 10% law's goal is to promote PROPORTIONAL representation, which it has done well empirically. In other words, just because most of the beneficiaries may have been white does not mean whites received a disproportionate amount of the benefits because they make up the majority of TX.
