  •  I don't think white women get affirmative action (0+ / 0-)

    anymore in admissions.  They have better grades and test scores than their male counterparts.  The only exception I could see might be in a male-dominated engineering school like Georgia Tech.

    •  They "got" affirmative action in many other areas (3+ / 0-)

      other than colleges, and the current change reflects past affirmative action policies, (and changes in admissions over time).  

      How do I know? I ran one of the major programs that propelled women into broadcasting - funded through CPB.  

      I see those names - many of the women whose entree into radio and television was in the 70's reflected back at me when I look at the credit roll.  Most are white. They kept their jobs and moved up.

      Minority women - funded through the same program didn't fare as well.
