THE FALLACY OF REVERSE DISCRIMINATION w/ Dr. ALAN SOFFIN
When colleges accepted minority applicants who had records inferior to Caucasian students it was said such a policy was simply discrimination in reverse. The same was argued when a black contractor was selected over a more established white contractor. I will argue that this seemingly sensible complaint is based on a misunderstanding of “discrimination.”
