We are no longer accepting new questions. Thanks
to all the visitors who submitted questions.
Some people argue that
if we stopped "seeing" race, the problems of racism will
go away. Opponents of affirmative action equate race-based
policies with "reverse discrimination" and assert that
the victories of the Civil Rights era have provided Americans
with a level-playing field, while others claim we still
need race in order to address inequality. As the Supreme
Court decides whether affirmative action programs in universities
should be allowed to continue, Americans must decide,
what kind of society are we ready for?
