"This is the real affirmative-action status quo," Henninger continued. "The Harvards, Princetons, Amhersts, Michigans, and Georgetowns fight like dogs over the same small pool of high-achieving black and Hispanic 18-year-olds." And all the rest, whatever their mixture of colors, are left behind.

If the Republican and Democratic leaders in Congress, the presidents through the years, the courts, and the adversaries in the college affirmative-action debates had devoted their passions and their priorities to liberating all these victims of failing schools, there would have been a true diversity of Americans with decent jobs and futures, instead of all this intense concern for what the Supreme Court will do about "diversity"—affirmative action for the few.
