Dr. Boyce: Why You Black People No Longer Need Affirmative Action
For the sake of deviating from tradition, I thought I’d try to peer into the mind of a racist. Doing so took me to the hotly-debated topic of Affirmative Action, which is going before the Supreme Court this week. I am a product of affirmative action. Although I am a pretty well-educated dude, I sincerely doubt that Syracuse University would have let me in after not hiring any other African American finance professor in the last 100 years.
Out of respect for the all the proud Texans who don’t quite realize just how their thinking descended from their Klansman roots (of course they only hate Obama so much because of healthcare), I am going to lay out some reasons why we don’t need affirmative action. Also consistent with tradition, I fully expect to get angry emails from people who read the title, but were too lazy to read the article itself. If you are one of those people, then I encourage you to rethink your “analytical” capabilities.
