Scalia Suggests Black Students Do Better At Bad Schools
Backlash against Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia prove affirmative action is still one of our most divisive issues.By Eugene Daniels | December 9, 2015
During the argument of a case on affirmative action at the University of Texas at Austin, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia seemingly suggested it would be better for black students to go to less advanced schools.
Scalia noted that notable black scientists "come from lesser schools where they do not feel that they're being pushed ahead in classes that are too fast for them." Scalia is a known critic of affirmative action and argues it pushes black students into universities they're not prepared for. (Video via CNN)
The backlash has proven at least one thing: Affirmative action remains one of our most divisive issues.
