My latest op-ed, with the title above, appeared in The Virginian-Pilot Wednesday. Since I wrote this blog post, the response of the Virginia NAACP”s executive director was made public and he was interviewed on TV. The discussion of Sen. Webb’s op-ed continues, both online and off. (Just ran across this post last night.) I suspect this op-ed will be an issue again in 2012, when Webb will be on the ballot for re-election.
One issue I should mention: that of the benefits of affirmative action for white women. One of the many sources that I read on this topic can be found here. But a Google search brings up a ton of them.
