I thought color of skin was not supposed to matter. We were supposed to look past that, and base everything on the content of someones character.

If they get rid of affirmative action, will they get rid of preferential treatment and admissions for the children of rich alumni donors. Just as unfair in my book. The only people screwed by affirmative action are middle class whites. A college app shouldn't have a name, race, or gender on it. Just use their social security number for ID, and admit based solely on merit.
