Foolish Friday: Nebraska Set to Vote on Affirmative Action Ban
Can diversity survive off the court?
Nebraska will soon vote on a ballot initiative that would ban race-based affirmative action in the awarding of state contracts, employment and admission to Nebraska’s public colleges and universities.
The voters are apparently deadlocked over the initiative. In a state whose population is 91.8% white and whose public university system is more than 85% white, half of the voters apparently believe that their public universities and colleges are, at this point, too diverse.
Maybe if they got rid of their football team(s)…
