"...all Americans be judged by the content of their character, not the color of their skin."

Fifty Years of Affirmative Action Is Enough
"At the same time, thank God, the efforts of Dr. King and other heroes of the civil-rights movement have resulted in the illegalization of school segregation and indeed, of racial discrimination in just about any other public transaction as well — in employment, housing, voting, education, public accommodations, lending, contracting, you name it.

Except, of course, that such discrimination is often tolerated when it is labeled affirmative action.

Given that discrimination is at odds with the ideals of the civil-rights movement, and given the transformation of American society just briefly outlined above, isn’t it time to end all racial and ethnic discrimination?"
