There is a case wending its way through the legal system that seeks to overturn race-based admissions at UNC. The case has made it to oral arguments at the Supreme Court.
What we today call Affirmative Action stems from a series of legislative bills and executive orders in 1965
Whether you agree or disagree, it has been a topic of discussion ever since. Oral arguments were very recent, and the Supremes will rule in their time and in their manner. Many Americans have lived their entire lives under Affirmative Action and cannot conceive a future without it.
This is liable to get interesting.
