Supreme Court Decision Divides Americans on Race in College Admissions

Date:

spot_img

 A new poll shows that a slight majority of Americans, 52%, agree with the Supreme Court’s decision to remove race as a factor in college admissions. However, there is a significant divide along racial lines with most white Americans, 60%, in favor of the decision, and most Black Americans and Latinos opposed.

The poll, conducted by ABC News-Ipsos, also found that most white Americans believe that people of all racial backgrounds have an equal chance of being accepted by a college. However, 70% of Black Americans and 60% of Latinos believe that is not the case.

The Supreme Court’s decision is a significant setback for affirmative action, which has been used by colleges and universities to increase diversity on campuses. The decision is likely to have a major impact on college admissions, making it more difficult for students of minority groups to gain admission to select and elite schools.
