President Bush came out strongly yesterday against affirmative action in college admissions. He said that the White House would argue in a brief to the Supreme Court that the University of Michigan gives unconstitutional preference to African-American, Latino, and Native American applicants.
Bush charged Michigan’s policy was divisive, unfair and unconstitutional.
The Michigan court case is seen as the most important affirmative action case in a generation.
