Affirmative action beneficiaries: mostly not poor

Nathan Whitelight

Liberals arguing for racial preferences in our government always give a sob story about a minority who grew up in the ghetto, unlike the Whites all of whom must have been middle class. This simply isn’t an accurate picture of the typical affirmative action beneficiary, most are themselves the children of middle class parents, often who have gone to college themselves. If the desire behind affirmative action is to help the impoverished that could easily be done. That isn’t the desire. The desire comes from people putting a greater value on Black skin.
