This country was built off of systemic racism. So we should not be surprised that Jeff Sessions is moving to investigate whether affirmative action discriminates against white students. The punchline? They’re using money meant for civil-rights enforcement to fund it. Everybody benefits from affirmative action, but it’s a lot easier for white people to get mad about it because they see it as minorities getting something over them. After 300 years of abusing people of color, the least they could do is spend 100 years trying to level the playing field.
