Race Preference Policies Are "Discriminatory On all Ends" Says BorelliFrom David Almasi:
Congratulations to Project 21 fellow Deneen Borelli for spelling out the antiquity of affirmative action policies in the March 18 Boston Globe.
Globe reporter Matt Negrin called Project 21 to ask if the election of a black U.S. president would show that race preference policies are no longer needed. Ward Connerly of the American Civil Rights Institute and Abigail Thernstrom of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and Manhattan Institute, among others, were also interviewed.
Deneen told the Globe:Times have changed. There are plenty of opportunities available, but to have this crutch... is just wrong. It's discriminatory on all ends.Deneen has previously written about affirmative action in a New Visions Commentary that can be read by clicking here.
