Affirmative Action "Creates More Racial Injustice"

In a 3/22/13 debate on the internationally-broadcast AriseTV about race preferences in general and the current U.S. Supreme Court case of Fisher v. UT-Austin in particular, Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper says having race-conscious admissions policies "creates more racial injustice."

While George B. Washington of the Michigan Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action complains that poor-quality schools put minority students at a disadvantage that preferences can rectify, Horace points out that substandard teaching should be the focus of concern and not gaming the admissions process so minorities have an advantage.

Horace also notes that affirmative action policies single out white students for punishments that are not a result of their direct actions.
