Affirmative action needs to go

It’s hard to predict how the Supreme Court will rule about affirmative action (“Affirmative Action’s Last Best Hope,” The New York Times, Oct. 26).  Ever since Grutter v. Bollinger in 2003, it has emphasized racial diversity’s importance in academic settings.

But I hope the high court puts an end to affirmative action.  It’s been in place long enough.  I believe that pure merit should be the sole basis for admission.  If that results in fewer places for Blacks and Hispanics, so be it.  College is not for everyone.
