The new Supreme Court ruling on affirmative action leaves in place, for now, a system that allows public universities in Maryland, Virginia and many other states to consider race and ethnicity in admissions.

In my opinion, this is a disgrace. It promotes racisim! If these college/universities get any federal funding, their law has to be struck down. Also I find that living in poverty, even though very high test scores is so humiliating, these students have to be able to hold down several jobs just to afford to get a better education.
I suppose like the old saying "Hard work never hurt anybody" is true for these students and some I guess can rise above it, which makes them stronger, others are left out, and would have to take any kind of poor paying job they can get and the cycle goes on.
Thanks Carrie.

In California we have a similar law. The legislature tried to introduce a bill to reinstate affirmative action but it was blocked by the Asian community.

Everybody should have the opportunity of an excellent education.
