"You Ain't the Right Color, Pal": White Resentment of Affirmative Action.
Lynch, Frederick R.; Beer, William R.
Policy Review, n51 p64-67 Win 1990
Discusses the growing sense of grievance among younger working-class and middle-class White males most affected by affirmative action preferences. Suggests that measures intended to ensure equal opportunity and proportional representation for minority groups may be contributing to racial polarization on college campuses, in workplaces, and in political life.
