    Where did you get that preposterous idea?. Laws are always ambiguous.

    Yeah, he knows how the world works, and there has never been an AG in the history of the country picked based on a 'meritocracy.' But he can make up standards that don't apply to any of the 79/83 white males appointed, subject black women to it, then conclude they only got the job because they're black based on his own made up standards.

    Her race may have been used *against* her at various points in life but the anti AA pro legacy (aka racist) crowd doesn't give two ****s about that. Even IF obama used race as a factor, i couldn't give a damn. It's going to take a lot more than one attorney general pick to turn around this broken legal system

    Perhaps so, although there has been a fair amount of state and federal legislation from the right to curb it.

    I love when this subject comes up and the same folks stumble forward to tell us how unfair and downright unAmericans affirmative actions programs are aimed at African Americans and other minorities but then fall all over themselves to justify AA programs like legacy admissions for rich white kids simply because its all a matter of whose oxe is being gored.

    Intellectual consistency resulting in integrity seems to have gone the way of the tri-cornered hat for some making these justifications.

    Racist and elitist trash. You couldn't qualify to hang her lifetime achievement certificates on her office wall.

    BTW, MIT manages to fund their endowment without legacy admissions. It's an excuse for legacy admissions, not the reason for them.
    legacy admissions actually benefit the university and poor students who couldn't afford to attend without aid. racist admissions hurt everyone. I never-in four years-saw a Legacy-fail to make grades. My freshman suite had four students. One was from an old old distinguished family dating back to one of the first constitutional scholars in US History. #1 at one of the most prestigious prep schools in the country and 1600 scores on the SAT. He dropped out due to cocaine. The second boy went to a top private day school in NYC, was all city in basketball and was another rich white dude like me and the guy with the nose issue. He got B grades, was popular and very involved in varsity (Freshman year) and intramural sports. I had OK grades freshman year, made all conference in one sport, JV in another, and graduated with a A- average, a national title and two time all-american. The last guy was black, had a 1320 SAT (below average at Yale but he was the top scoring black guy in my class) and had gone to a progressive HS in Queens (John Dewey) which didn't give grades. His SAT scores were 140 points lower than the the basketball star (who had the lowest of us three white guys). This guy flunked out. He was asked to take a term off and he never came back. Now if he had gone to a good public university, he probably would have done pretty well and got a degree.

    THe jock and I were both legacies.

    As usual your posts don't understand the difference. AA is based on race which violates title VII. programs that give jocks, chess masters, ballerinas or rich kids who fund the education of other kids breaks do not.

    You have made it abundantly clear in discussion that you are completely in favor of preferences for rich kids but against them for minorities. Preferences are preferences and all the fancy parsing of pretend distinctions is irrelevant to that concept. If anyone has intellectual integrity - they should oppose them all if they oppose any.

    I believe and support a system of college admissions by pure merit when the best are judged by their record and nothing else. Do you?
