    Hey, I am not going to argue with you about black population as it is and this article in particular. I believe it is just a good example of racial prejudice against certain groups of American population that seems pretty strange to me in the XXI century.

    I haven't seen this happen and actually work. Nevertheless, people should be cognizant of how ironic affirmative action is. It makes it EXTREMELY difficult now for any white male to get into a good school. Simply look at any Ivy League acceptance rates, and the "minorities" (which have now become the majority) are accepted at laughably higher rates.
