Affirmative Action: A Personal View.
Hayashi, Patrick
College Board Review, n162 p18-19,30-33 Win 1991-92
An Asian-American college admissions director discusses affirmative action based on his own experiences and the comments of Shelby Steele, an African-American critic of affirmative action. He argues that affirmative action promotes distrust and self-doubt. He proposes that honest self-assessment is more productive and affirmative action should not be equated with either handouts or racial preference. (MSE)
