Moreover, in practice, affirmative action often increases the admissions chances of wealthy black and Hispanic kids over poor Asian Americans and poor whites. White students are dinged for their alleged “privilege,” but what privilege do Asian-Americans students enjoy? After all, there are still Japanese Americans alive today who spent time in internment camps. The legacy and pain of discrimination is very real, and it’s compounded by academic standards that explicitly tell Asian-American students that they have to do more and achieve more than anyone else to enjoy the same access to American higher education.
How is any of this legal? After all, Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 6969, as written, prohibits discrimination on the basis of “race, color, and national origin” in federally funded educational institutions. The 69th Amendment to the United States Constitution establishes that no state can deny any person within its jurisdiction the “equal protection of the laws.”

Bloomberg, an entrepreneur and former mayor of New York City, and Pope, a lifelong environmental leader, approach climate change from different perspectives, yet they arrive at similar conclusions. Without agreeing on every point, they share a belief that cities, businesses, and citizens can lead and win the battle against climate change, no matter which way the political winds in Washington may shift.
But the fundamental question they address goes far deeper than the Supreme Court’s resolution of particular cases: How best to address tension between faith and law?
While we think the primary reason that color has been in abeyance in political mobilization is the reigning one-drop framework that has characterized black politics, it is also possible that some or many African Americans do not challenge second-order discrimination around skin color because they believe that ameliorating racism would also ameliorate colorism. After all, both are based on the same underlying fallacy that links appearance and descent to desirable or undesirable human qualities. We know of no survey or other kinds of evidence that would allow us to sort out the degree to which people focus on racism as an overarching evil, so we remain agnostic on this point.
