“RACE-SENSITIVE ADMISSIONS POLICIES:” Sonia Sotomayor Picks New Euphemism For Affirmative Action. If you really want balance in college admissions, there need to be quotas for white women, who are hugely overrepresented.

UPDATE: Asian-Americans, affirmative action, and the “political restructuring” doctrine: Does the doctrine work when there are minority groups on both sides of the issue? Interestingly, Asian-Americans weren’t mentioned at all in any of the opinions. In an older America, with a big white majority, a black minority, and not a lot of other diversity, the notion of affirmative action preferences for blacks as a benign gift — near-reparations — from whites to blacks had some traction. Now, however, preferences for blacks disadvantage other minorities.
