US justices seem skeptical of race-, ethnicity-linked admissions

Justice Antonin Scalia, voicing his own skepticism, mentioned the opinion of some affirmative action critics — while not citing it as his own — that some black students might do better at “a slower track school” than the University of Texas. Used by some schools to bolster the number of students from minority racial and ethnic groups, affirmative action long has been used to help redress centuries of discrimination, particularly against African-Americans. Opponents of affirmative action, meantime, complain that qualified white students are disadvantaged by policies seeking to increase the numbers of minority students.
