This Is the End of Affirmative Action
Adam Harris, The Atlantic
Affirmative action has been a veil obscuring the truth about American higher education, writes journalist and author Adam Harris in his new book, "The State Must Provide." It has never been that hard to see through, for those who tried, but removing it could force the nation at large to recognize the disparities in our system—and to search for better mechanisms to make college equitable.
Harris says one way to make a real difference would be to support the institutions that Black students have historically attended, and that still produce an outsize share of Black professionals.
