Bakke's Implication.
Rabinove, Samuel
This document analyzes the Supreme Court decision in the Allan Bakke case. Primary emphasis is given to outlining the uncertainties and ambiguities remaining in the wake of the Court's findings that racial and ethnic quotas are not constitutionally acceptable, although race can be a valid factor in applying affirmative action remedies. Reference is made to the influence that the Bakke decisions might have on cases now pending which challenge the validity of affirmative action policies which discriminate against whites. Particular concern is expressed for the potential impact these decisions might have on Jews. Some of these court cases are described in detail. Pending action affecting disadvantaged students and supported by Jewish groups is discussed. Black support and criticism of the Bakke decisions and other court action concerning affirmative action policies are also discussed. Criticism is directed against specific actions that have denied equal education and protection for ethnic and racial minorities. In addition, a strong argument is made for the need to help all disadvantaged groups, and for the elimination of solutions that are "simple, easy and wrong," such as racial and ethnic "quotaism."
