Reply to "The Texas 10% Plan"

Ebony:

Maybe so, but does that mean that if the first 10% (or portion thereof) decide not to attend, they will drop down to the next 10% group? But that is just one of the minor flaws that I noticed in the Program, the main one is what I mentioned before, and that was, it only gives this 10% an option (Guarantee) to attend "State Supported Schools", and I wont get any deeper into that classification at this stage, because that will open up a whole other "can of worms" that Blacks haven't even considered. Anyway, this Program doesn't include the higher rated "Private Institutions" where the Cream of the Crop, or future Leaders usually attend.

What that really means is that fewer and fewer Black Students will have an opportunity to attend and compete at these higher rated Schools. Consequently there will be fewer Blacks available to compete for Leadership Positions in Business, Education, and Government in the future. It won't be discrimination in the future, the System just wont have many Blacks in the selection mix where these Leaders will come from.
