Surprise! Affirmative action benefits rich white kids

Yet another reason why Arizona's Civil Rights Initiative needs to be passed to ban racial preferences. According to author Peter Schmidt, affirmative action policies have had the opposite effect - helping rich whites, not poor minorities. Affirmative action is a feel-good idea that hasn't worked and has served to stigmatize, marginalize, and ghettoize minorities. Schmidt's website has a wealth of information on the subject and should be required reading for anyone interested in the topics of affirmative action and quotas.
