Affirmative Action and the Rumor of Black Inferiority.
Hochschild, Jennifer L.
Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, n8 p64-65 Sum 1995
Challenges the view that, in a meritocratic society, affirmative action in higher education does personal and professional harm to those whom it ostensibly benefits. The author contends that, in most cases, those who are granted preferences are neither professionally diminished nor hurt by personal or societal feelings that they are unqualified or that their benefits are undeserved.
