AP: UT-Austin President: "Diversity Benefits All"



To me Affirmative Action is about Equal Protection Under The Law, which is a core part of our Constitution. That all Americans regardless of race, ethnicity or gender, are entitled to the same protections under the law, meaning that people in this country can't be denied access or rights because. Of their race, ethnicity or gender, that we can't be denied a job, housing or college, because of our race, ethnicity or gender, meaning the Public or Private Sector, that no one regardless. Of race, ethnicity or gender can be turned down from these things, because of their race, ethnicity or gender and thats my problem with Affirmative Action, if Affirmative Action was solely. About recruitment, making sure that all Americans, especially people who come from under developed backgrounds, another words grew up in poverty and we as a society were going to reach out. To these people, to let them know the benefits of getting a good education and a good job and do fourth, then I would not only have a problem with it but I would also be in favor of it but thats. Not what Affirmative Action is about, the other part of Affirmative Action, is literally denying people an education or a job, because of their race, that there are too many of you here. And we can't accept anymore of your race at this time, even if you are more qualified for the spot then the person or people we are considering for it right now and to me as a non lawyer that. Strikes me as Unconstitutional on its face.

Running for and what voters he needs to win that election, if you saw The Choice on PBS Frontline Tuesday night, you would've seen evidence to support that.
