Affirmative Action?

What people are talking about…

Affirmative action. Yesterday, it came out that the Trump administration plans to investigate and sue colleges if they’ve used affirmative action to discriminate against white applicants. Affirmative action has been around since the ’60s and sets policy for places like schools and employers to give minorities and women an assist in getting a spot. The Justice Dept. has an entire civil rights division that looks into things like discrimination in college admissions. But the Trump administration will be scrolling through LinkedIn to build a new team focused just on this. Supporters say it’s long overdue because affirmative action is no longer an effective way to get the best people in the door and that it can lead to discrimination of other groups. Critics say it will discourage universities from accepting minorities. The Justice Dept’s saying ‘no comment.’
