The Supreme Court has voted to allow “limited” forms of affirmative action in college admissions policy. Here’s what Houstonians had to say.

Notice anything odd about the feedback page? Of those pictured, only one was a minority and I use that term loosely when referring to a college graduate. I found that highly amusing. Are the Chronicle’s demographics such that minorities don’t read the paper?

Affirmative action, reverse discrimination, whatever you want to call it, has been around for over a generation and its benefits have been minimal. It’s time for absolute standards to be applied to everyone equally.
