Affirmative action based on race/sex/orientation was a mistake. Those factors are no longer barriers to entry in American academies. The more prominent barriers are income and family background in higher education. Low income students catch a break thanks to federal grants, but the first generation students at my undergrad alma mater got a pat on the back. I hope this changes in the future. It seems bigoted to assume that minorities need a boost in the academy simply because of their race/sex/orientation. It seems less bigoted to give aid to those who demonstrably need it.
